Liverpool defeated Manchester United 3-1 this evening, with two goals from Xherdan Shaqiri ensuring the Reds went one point ahead of Manchester City at the top of the table.
In what may go slightly under the radar after a victory over our fiercest rivals, Liverpool broke their own record for their longest run of unbeaten games in the league with 18 unbeaten.
Prior to the game, the Reds were on a 17-game unbeaten streak under Klopp, which matched Rafa Benitez’s record set back in 2008, yet with the win today, Klopp has surpassed his record which stood for 10 years.
An incredible achievement, especially considering Klopp has managed his unbeaten streak all within the same campaign, as opposed to Benitez’s, which was spread over two.
The win over United will have added significance for Klopp as well — not only was it Liverpool’s first league win over their biggest rivals for five years, it now means Klopp has managed to beat all 26 teams he has faced in the league.
It definitely has the makings of a special season.
