Premier League leaders Liverpool set a record for the best start to a domestic campaign in the history of Europe’s top five leagues with Saturday’s victory at Tottenham.

Jurgen Klopp’s relentless Reds are hurtling towards the Premier League title and Saturday’s 1-0 win on their first visit to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium moved the league leaders up to a staggering 61 points from their opening 21 games this season.

61 – @LFC have won 61 points in the Premier League in 2019-20 – the most any side has ever registered after 21 games in a single season across Europe's big five leagues (assuming 3pts/win). Imperious. #TOTLIV

Spurs 0-1 Liverpool: Player ratings

It means Liverpool’s points tally at this stage of the season surpasses the previous Premier League record of 59 points, set by Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in 2017/18 before they went on to win the title.

And if that wasn’t enough, Liverpool’s start this season has also bettered totals set by Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1, Barcelona in La Liga and Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga to stand alone as the greatest start to a top-flight season on the continent.
