Liverpool go 40 games unbeaten: 8 things that have happened since they last lost
Liverpool are now at 40 matches unbeaten, which made us wonder what has happened in the world since they last lost in the Premier League.
The Toe Poke Daily is here every day to bring you all the weirdest stories, quirkiest viral content and top trolling that the internet has to offer, all in one place.
The Reds continued on their approach to an historic title win with a victory over Wolves at Molineux in midweek. Another late goal saw them poach a 2-1 win and bolster their lead at the Premier League summit to a frankly chasm-like 16 points.
The result saw Jurgen Klopp's side extend their unbeaten run to a 40th consecutive match, becoming just the fifth side in English Football League history to reach that particular milestone.
Indeed, it's well over a calendar year (381 days) since they lost in the league -- a streak that dates way back to Jan. 3, 2019 and a 2-1 loss against Man City.
Since then ...
1. Liverpool have dropped just two points ...
Yes, that's 14 straight wins since the 1-1 draw at Old Trafford in the autumn. By way of comparison, Manchester United have lost 12 games and dropped 57 points since Liverpool last lost.
By the way, the season record for the most consecutive wins stands at 18 (Manchester City, 2017).
