Liverpool were on the cusp of creating Premier League history prior to their 3-0 loss away at Watford on Saturday.
The Reds went into the game on a 44-game unbeaten run in England's top-flight, just five short of the 49-game record set by Arsenal between 2003 and 2004.
It was a monumental effort by Jurgen Klopp's men and their brilliance - which will all but certainly result in a first Premier League title - will not be forgotten in a hurry.
In fact, Liverpool are now only the third team since the league's inception in 1992 to achieve an unbeaten run of 40 games or more.
Arsenal were, of course, the first, with Chelsea following suit shortly after under the guidance of Jose Mourinho between 2004 and 2005.
The difference between sixth and third is quite outrageous!
20th - Brighton (5 games, 2017/18)
This is only Brighton's third season in the Premier League, so they can be forgiven for being 20th.
19th - Watford (6 games, 2019/20)
Nigel Pearson has already set new records during his short time as manager of the Hornets!
18th - Bournemouth (7 games, 2017/18)
The Cherries don't look like breaking their record any time soon, do they?
17th - Sheffield United (8 games, 1993/94)
After watching Chris Wilder's side this season, they will likely set a new record in the near future.
16th - Crystal Palace (8 games, 2017/18)
The season Roy Hodgson transformed the Eagles after Frank de Boer's sacking.
15th - Norwich (8 games, 1993/94)
Back when Norwich weren't sitting rock-bottom of the Premier League...
14th - Burnley (8 games, 2018/19)
A very decent effort from Sean Dyche's men.
13th - Southampton (9 games, 2002/03)
The Saints finished a very respectable eighth in 2002/03 and managed to go nine games unbeaten, not bad.
12th - West Ham (10 games, 2015/16)
Slaven Bilic and Dimitri Payet were a dream partnership in 2015/16. How things have changed for the Hammers.
11th - Wolves (11 games, 2019/20)
No wonder Wolves are looking like serious contenders for Champions League football this season!
10th - Everton (11 games, 2009/10 & 2012/13)
David Moyes may be a figure of ridicule these days, but he masterminded two 11-game unbeaten runs at Everton.
9th - Leicester (12 games, 2015/16)
It's a shame the Foxes' longest unbeaten run didn't coincide with anything memorable. Oh wait...
8th - Aston Villa (13 games, 2008/09)
Remember Martin O'Neill's Villa team? Those were the days.
7th - Newcastle (14 games, 2011/12)
Alan Pardew's Newcastle side were pretty darn good in 2011/12.
6th - Tottenham (14 games, 2015/16 & 2017/18)
Remember when we said the jump from sixth to third was outrageous? We weren't lying - a 26-game difference!
5th - Man Utd (29 games, 1998/99)
Not even Sir Alex Ferguson's treble winners could reach the 30-game mark.
4th - Man City (30 games, 2017/18)
Liverpool and United were the only teams to beat Pep Guardiola's 'centurion' side in 2017/18.
3rd - Chelsea (40 games, 2004/05)
Mourinho's Chelsea are criminally underrated. One of the greatest football teams ever assembled.
2nd - Liverpool (44 games, 2019/20)
Never, ever underestimate just how good Liverpool have been. The fact they drew only four of those 44 games is absurd.
1st - Arsenal (49 games, 2003/04)
A Premier League record that may not be surpassed for centuries!
But if you think Arsenal's achievement is impressive, wait until you hear the all-time record for longest unbeaten league run.
That accolade belongs to Steaua Bucharest, who went 106 games unbeaten in the Romanian top-flight between 1986 and 1989!
