WHICH PREMIER LEAGUE RECORDS CAN LIVERPOOL SET?

After claiming a first Premier League title, Liverpool are also rewriting the history books.

Jurgen Klopp‘s leaders are 24 points clear after their 1-1 draw with Burnley on Saturday, a result which ended their hopes of become the first team to win all 19 home matches in a single campaign.

But having set a number of records in the competition this season, they can establish a number of other new marks.
