Jurgen Klopp admits he has ‘never seen’ a run of form like the one his Liverpool side are producing at present, the club having extended their lead at the top of the Premier League to 22 points following Saturday’s 4-0 win over Southampton.
Mohamed Salah scored twice at Anfield in addition to further goals from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jordan Henderson, the Reds registering a 16th successive victory and extending their unbeaten run to 42 league games.
The Merseyside club’s record-breaking start to the season has now seen them move within touching distance of a maiden Premier League title, and Klopp admits his side’s consistency is like nothing he has ever seen before.
”I have never seen it, to be honest,” Klopp told his post-match press conference.
”If I was asking from the outside, I would ask the same questions. Maybe other people would feel different, but I can only say it doesn’t feel [like it]. It’s not that I feel stronger and stronger and stronger after each win, it’s not like this.
”It is just one, great celebration – sometimes more, sometimes less – then relief, settle and go again.
Liverpool’s start has seen them move in sight of breaking a whole host of league records, including most points, most wins and matching the achievement of Preston North End and Arsenal in completing a top-flight season unbeaten.
Liverpool have won 100 points out of a possible 102 in their last 34 Premier League game…

The Merseyside club are also closing in on the Gunners’ record of 49 games without defeat and whilst Klopp is aware of the history that could be rewritten by his league leading side, maintains the focus remains solely on the next game.
”I know about it, again I have no clue how it should feel, but it is not that I think we are close to something really special. The boys have now a week off, we all have a week off, and then we go again,” Klopp continued.
”That’s the only thing I know and all the rest we have to see. So many things can happen in football.
”Even when there’s any decision made in the future, whenever that will be, why should we then stop thinking the same way? We have to use the skills of the boys, we have to use the character of the boys, we have to use the power of this club and especially of this stadium.
”It is our duty to win football games and that’s what we’ve tried now for a while.
