Liverpool set a new record with Bournemouth victory

Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Bournemouth on Saturday was another record for the club as it was their 22nd consecutive league match at Anfield.

The Reds had been on a downward trajectory heading into the game after suffering defeats at the hands of Atletico Madrid, Watford and Chelsea and things were made worse when the visitors took the lead in the ninth minute through Callum Wilson.

A goal apiece from Mo Salah and a Sadio Mane strike ensured the champions-elect moved to within nine points of the title with the team-who have one title in the hands-out to break a series of records in what will be one of the brightest seasons in their club history.

Liverpool has broken a number of records by registering their longest ever unbeaten run in the league and a club record for their longest run of consecutive league wins.

And the win against Bournemouth means they beat the top-flight record previously held by Bob Paisley's Liverpool side by going an astonishing 22 games at home without dropping a point in the league.

The win also meant that they are unbeaten in their last 55 Premier League home games; their last loss at homecoming in 2017 against Crystal Palace.

They will hope that the win gives them the morale boost needed ahead of their Wednesday Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid.
