Liverpool looked set to break Arsenal's 49-match unbeaten record this campaign until Saturday evening when they faced a certain Watford, staring relegation in the face.
The Reds had not lost a single match this season, stringing together 26 wins and a draw in their opening 27 matches.
That, added to the 18 games from last season, meant they had gone 44 matches unbeaten and were inching close to Arsenal's 49 games.
Ismaila Sarr scored a brace and assisted the other as the hosts shocked Jurgen Klopp's men, and it could have gotten worse had the hosts been more clinical in front of goal.
After the 3-0 demolishing, Arsenal breathed a sigh of relief and took to their Twitter account to share with their fans with a simple 'phew' message.
Phew...— Arsenal (@Arsenal) February 29, 2020
The Gunners further sent a 'congratulatory' message to Liverpool over their impeccable run.
Congratulations on a formidable unbeaten run, @LFC 👏— Arsenal (@Arsenal) February 29, 2020
Liverpool's march to the title may not be under any threat though despite the loss as they only need a couple of wins from the remaining 10 matches to be crowned champions.
They (Liverpool) next play Bournemouth before a Merseyside derby against Everton.
