Liverpool kept their hopes of replicating Arsenal’s ‘Invincibles’ season alive as they created an unbeaten record of their own to kick off 2020 with a bang.
Goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane in either half extended Liverpool’s unbeaten run in the Premier League to 37 games.
The win is Liverpool’s 11th in a row and stretches their lead at the top of the table to 13 points with a game in hand.
It did not take Liverpool long to get up and running as Salah got on the end of a low Andrew Robertson cross in the fourth minute to slide home his 14th goal of the season, his 11th at Anfield this term.
The rest of the first half was comfortable for the Reds, with Dean Henderson at his best in the away goal to deny Salah a second.
After the break, Liverpool remained in command, and moments after Salah had seen a crossed effort come out off the post, the Egyptian brilliantly set up Mane, after the swiftest of counter attacks, to make it two in the 64th minute.
From there on in, it was plain sailing for Liverpool, as they made it a remarkable 85 points taken from the last 87 available.
