Liverpool haven’t wrapped up the 2019-20 Premier League title yet, but it won’t be much longer before they do.
The Reds are 16 points clear of second-placed Manchester City, with a game in hand, as we approach February.
Jurgen Klopp’s brilliant side have dropped two league points all season, winning an unprecedented 22 of their 23 fixtures and drawing the other.
If they continue playing like this between now and May, this Liverpool team may very well be remembered as the greatest ever seen in the Premier League era.
They’re on course to smash various records and deserve all the credit that has come their way so far this season.

His debut season at Liverpool was a little underwhelming, but we’ve seen more than enough glimpses from Naby Keita over the past season-and-a-half to know he’s a top midfielder.
Appearances: 21, Starts: 17, Wins: 20, Draws: 1, Losses: 0
One of the world’s best holding midfielders, Fabinho has been superb for Liverpool since his arrival from AS Monaco in 2018.
