Premier League pacesetters Liverpool have set a new league record following the big victory over Everton in the Merseyside derby at Anfield on Wednesday night.
Liverpool went into the Everton game with a joint club-record of 31 league matches without defeat and they were able to extend that run to 32 games with the 5-2 victory over Everton.
The Reds now have the third longest unbeaten run in the history of the Premier League after Chelsea and Arsenal.
The Gunners hold the record with a 49-game unbeaten run between 2003 and 2004 as achieved under legendary manager Arsene Wenger.
Chelsea also recorded a 40-game unbeaten run while Jose Mourinho was their manager.

Liverpool still have 18 games to go to set a new record for the longest unbeaten run in the Premier League era.
The Reds are setting the pace in the Premier League mainly due to their unblemished start to the new season.
They have won 14 and drawn one of the 15 league matches played till date.
Their last league defeat came in January at the home of Premier League champions Manchester City.
Liverpool were beaten 2-1 by Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium in the first week of 2019 and that turned out to be their only defeat in the league last season as they narrowly lost the league title to rivals Manchester City.
