You might have the sneaking suspicion that Liverpool are in fantastic kind immediately after they won their seventh game in seven at the start out of the 2019/20 Premier League season.
Giorginio Wijnaldum’s skimming work left Sheffield United goalkeeper Dean Henderson with egg on his face as the Reds secured a 1- victory at Bramall Lane on Saturday. Jurgen Klopp’s males knew they have been in a contest in Yorkshire, sooner or later breaking the deadlock via a mixture of Wijnaldum’s awkward shot and Henderson’s even much more awkward save.
The triumph stretches Liverpool’s lead at the leading of the table to eight points ahead of Manchester City’s game at Everton on Saturday evening – the Sky Blues just can’t afford something but a win on Merseyside.
As noted by Opta, their win at Bramall Lane means the Reds have now claimed victory in 16 consecutive Premier League matches, their greatest ever winning-streak in the competitors.
Evidently, the momentum is with Liverpool, as it was with City two years ago, when they set the record for successive leading-flight triumphs with 18 of them among August and December 2017.
It will be incredibly complicated for any one to quit the Reds’ charge at present, Klopp’s recruits matching the club’s prior very best start out to a initially division campaign to keep the buoyant mood in camp.
Only after ahead of have Liverpool kicked off the year by winning their first seven league matches, that coming at the start out of 1990/91. That came at the finish of an era of dominance – they might properly be on the cusp of yet another.
