Liverpool's 1-0 victory at Newcastle at Saturday saw them set a new club record for most wins in a single season.

The Reds prevailed on Tyneside following a first-half goal from Naby Keita, though the scoreline flattered Newcastle and the visitors should have won by a bigger margin.

Nevertheless, Jurgen Klopp's side return to Merseyside with the three points and with an impressive record broken.

Liverpool have now won 42 games in all competition this term, more than in any other campaign in their illustrious history.

The previous record of 41 was set by the Premier League title-winners of 2019/20 and the league and cup double conquerors of 1985/86.

This year's total has been helped by Liverpool's runs to both domestic cup finals, as well as a near-flawless record in the Champions League.

The Reds will play a maximum of seven more games this season, with the chance to extend this current record to 49 wins. However, that would be one short of the national record held by Manchester City, who notched up 50 victories in 2018/19 en-route to a first-ever domestic treble.

City also recorded 47 wins last season and 44 in 2017/18, while Everton (43 in 1984-85) and Manchester United (44 in 2008/09) are also currently ahead of the current Liverpool team.
