Not a good start, or a good game to be fair. But the momentum is continuing and the winning mentality has returned. Last 5 games, 5 wins shows the stars on Match of the Day Last Night. At the ground it was quite a muted affair. Perhaps the Kop were wearing face masks armed with the knowledge that Van Dijk and Fabinho et al had a COVID outbreak.

Liverpool was the first English team ever to record 2,000 top-division wins. Jürgen Klopp notched up his 150th league win as Liverpool manager, 12 games quicker than Sir Kenny Dalglish in 2011.

Salah struck his 22nd goal of the season, and only Roger Hunt with 23 in 1961-62 has scored more for Liverpool before Christmas. (Liverpool had 23 games before Christmas then to 27 this season).

With a depleted Everton getting a draw at Chelsea, there is a slight gap emerging between them, Liverpool and City.
