What a season! The 14 records Liverpool have beaten or matched on their way to the Premier League title - in pictures
After a wait of 30 years, this is an impressive collection
Liverpool's first league title in 30 years has been one of the most impressive of their 19 after a season of dominance. Following are the records they have broken this season:
*Jurgen Klopp's side sealed the title with seven games to spare, eclipsing Manchester United (2000-01) and Manchester City (2017-18) who sealed their respective titles with five games left.
*Liverpool became the first team to win the league in eight different decades - 1900s, 1920s, 1940s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and 2020s.
*Liverpool's 3-1 victory against Newcastle United was their 32nd win of the season, equalling City's record for most victories in a Premier League campaign.
*Liverpool's 2-0 win over Aston Villa on July 5 extended their record of successive home wins in the league to 24. The previous record was City's mark of 20. Klopp's side were held to a 1-1 draw by Burnley the following week to end the run.
*When they beat West Ham United in February it was their 18th consecutive league win, equalling Manchester City's record. They lost their next game at Watford.
*They beat Southampton 4-0 on February 1 to move 22 points clear of City at the top of the table for the biggest lead in Premier League history. That grew to 25 points after a 1-0 victory against Norwich City later that month.
*Liverpool's 1-0 win at Tottenham on January 11 meant they set a record for points gained from the first 21 games in any of Europe's big five leagues (61).
*They won their next six games to increase their points tally to 79 from their first 27 matches, before losing 3-0 at Watford.
*With their win at Tottenham, Liverpool set the record for most points gained across a 38-match spell in the Premier League (104), surpassing 102-point stretches by City and Chelsea.
*Liverpool had beaten 18 of the 19 teams in the league heading into their match against West Ham on January 29. A 2-0 victory against the Hammers marked the first time they had defeated every team in a single top-flight campaign in the club's 127-year history.
*Liverpool won 18 of their 19 games at Anfield, matching the achievements of Chelsea (2005-06), City (2011–12, 2018–19) and United (2010-11).
*Liverpool picked up 55 points from home games this season, the joint-most alongside Chelsea (2005-06), United (2010-11) and City (2011-12).
*Liverpool beat Newcastle on the final day of the season to set a new club record of 14 away wins in a league campaign.
*Mohamed Salah became the first Liverpool player to score 20 goals in all competitions in three consecutive seasons since Michael Owen between 2000-01 and 2002-03 when the Egyptian striker scored in a 2-1 win against Bournemouth.
