Liverpool became the first team in English football history to win 2,000 league games. After beating Newcastle 3-1 in the English Premier League on Thursday night.

         Jürgen Klopp’s men were led first by youngster Jonjo Shelvey, but the team scored three goals in a row from Diogo Jota, Mohamed Salah and Trent. Alexander-Arnold gave the team three points. 

         The victory was the Reds’ 2000th in the league, making it the most wins in English football’s history with 4,227 games.

         Of the total number of games played was a major milestone victory. The remainder are divided into 1,047 draws and 1,180 losses.

         It was also Jurgen Klopp’s 150th league win in the league, just 12 fewer than Sir Kenny Dalglish.

         That goal in the game also set the team a club record of 32 goals in a row. While Mohamed Salah’s goal has made him involved in the goal in 15 consecutive games. This is the longest time that Jamie Vardy has in 15 games.

Indeed, Salah has 24 goal involvements in the league this season (15 goals, nine assists), only former Newcastle striker Alan Shearer in 1994-95 has registered more before Christmas in the competition (16 goals, nine assists).

The Reds have now won 2,000 of their 4,227 top-flight fixtures (D1047 L1180), a win ratio of 47.3 per cent.

Liverpool have lifted the English top-flight title on 19 occasions, the first coming in the 1900-01 season, while their most recent was in the 2019-20 campaign and their first of the Premier League era.
