  1. Most home wins in a single season. The current record of 18 is held by Chelsea, Man United and Man City.
  2. Most victories in a season. Klopp's side are just four wins away from matching the 32 victories claimed by City in 2018 and 2019.
  3. Most points in a season. Liverpool are just 14 points away from equalling Man City's record haul of 100.
  4. The biggest winning margin. The Reds are looking good to beat the record 19-point margin also set by City in 2017/18.
