Liverpool FC had an amazing 2019/20 season which saw them clinch their maiden Premier League title.
The Reds lifted their first league trophy since 1990 and they did so in style as they set a number of records during their successful campaign. 
Jurgen Klopp's side set the record for the biggest point lead at any time (25) and it is also the biggest ever in English top-flight history.
They achieved this feat after they secured a hard-fought 1-0 win over Norwich City at Carrow Road on 15 February 2020 and they were ahead of second-placed Manchester City.

With their attack led by world-class attackers Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, Liverpool also set the record for the most consecutive home wins (24).
This was after they brushed aside Aston Villa 2-0 at their iconic home ground Anfield Stadium on 05 July 2020 after the 2019/20 season resumed following a break enforced by the coronavirus pandemic. 
Trent Alexander Arnold, the Liverpool defender, explained that they were motivated after finishing second behind champions Manchester City in the previous season. 
“Like I said, that’s down to the whole club, the way it’s run and the way we believe our beliefs.I think it’s what we deserve and it’s something we set out to achieve probably last season but we weren’t able to do it," Alexander-Arnold said.
“We showed that a knockback like not winning it last season would just motivate us to go again this season and be able to achieve amazing things, like we have done. 
“We’re really proud as a team and I’m proud to be able to see everyone in the city so happy - well, all the Liverpool fans obviously! It’s a proud moment for the club.”
Furthermore, the six-time European champions matched the Premier League records for the most wins (32) and the most home wins (18) during their most memorable season since 1992.

Liverpool also equalled Manchester City's record for the longest winning run in the English top-flight, taking their total to 18 successive league wins after beating West Ham 3-2 on 25 February 2020.
Beginning the season prior, Liverpool enjoyed a 44-match unbeaten run in the league, the second-longest streak in top-flight history.
However, they were defeated by Watford on 29 February 2020, but the team remained unbeaten at home in the league for the third season in a row.
The Reds finished the season with 99 points, the club's record and the second-highest in English top-flight history after Manchester City's 100 two years prior.
Lastly, Liverpool claimed the unusual achievement of winning the Premier League earlier than any other team by games played (with seven remaining).
And later than any other team by date (being the only team to clinch the title in June) after City succumbed to a 2-1 defeat to Chelsea on 26 June 2020.
