Liverpool have bagged 125 points out of possible 144 in their last 48 games

Manchester United v Liverpool FC - Premier League

There is a common consensus on Merseyside at the moment: this Liverpool team is one of the best Anfield has ever seen.

The fact that a score draw away to bitter rivals Manchester United has been met with widespread disappointment just goes to show how far they have come.

In years gone by, Liverpudlians have dreaded a trip to United's mythical Theatre of Dreams, but, on Sunday, they rolled into Manchester with the scent of blood in their nostrils.

Even so, Jurgen Klopp's side are still six points clear at the top of the league and are still on track to finally break their painful Premier League duck.

While Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola will be thanking his cross-town rivals for the part they played in reducing the gap at the top, he will know that overhauling Liverpool will be no small feat.

That is because the Reds have taken a staggering 125 points from the last 144 on offer in the Premier League.

In that 48 game stretch, they have drawn eight times while losing just once.


Even Liverpool fans would have scarcely been able to believe you if, three years ago, you had told them they would be watching such a dominant team week in week out.

After Manchester City somehow pipped them to the title last season, Klopp and co. will be desperate to go one step further and finally get their hands on the holy grail of domestic football.

It really could be their year.
