Premier League leader Liverpool is rewriting the history books this season and can set two more records against West Ham United on Monday night.
If Liverpool defeats the Hammers, they will break Manchester City’s record with 18 consecutive wins between August and December 2017.
Not only that, but a victory would also be the 21st consecutive Red at Anfield. That would be the mark for most consecutive home wins in the top division, a feat owned by the 1972 Liverpool team led by Bill Shankly.
But could there be a bad omen for Jürgen Klopp’s team?
This is the first Premier League game on a Monday since the West Ham encounter in February last year.
There was a 1-1 draw that night and it was the last time Liverpool failed to win a game in which they scored the first goal.
