Liverpool continue their great run with the 2-0 victory over Manchester United this Sunday. With this result, the Reds have gone 1002 days without losing a home game, and some important events have happened since that moment.

The last time they lost at Anfield was on April 23, 2017, when Crystal Palace returned to South London with a 2-1 win, thanks to two goals from former Liverpool striker Christian Benteke.

Ever since that, Jurgen Klopp's side have played 51 games at home without a single defeat, lasting over two full seasons, and a lot more has happened in that time too:

  • Three New iPhones have been made
  • Manchester United have spent £309 million on players, and have one Europa League to show for it - won a month after Liverpool's loss
  • Lionel Messi has scored 119 goals for Barcelona (He reached 500 on the same day Palace beat Liverpool)
  • Anthony Joshua has beaten Wladimir Klitschko, lost his world titles to Andy Ruiz and won them back
  • Brexit has been delayed three times
  • David Moyes was appointed West Ham United manager, kept them in the Premier League, lost his job and got his job back at West Ham
  • Liverpool have been in two Champions League finals
  • VAR was introduced to football in the World Cup and then the Premier League, and no one has complained about it
  • Manchester United founded a women's team and they've earned promotion
  • Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson was canceled for a fourth occasion and then reorganized for a fifth, which should happen in April
  • Wayne Rooney has played for Manchester United, Everton, DC United and Derby County. He's also played for England, retired from international duty and came out of retirement to play a one-off game.

After Sunday’s victory, Liverpool added one more day to that list while increasing his advantage over Manchester City with a 16-point gap. Virgil van Dijk with a header and Mohamed Salah in injury time gave the W to the Merseysiders, who look stronger than ever on their way to win the Premier League for the first time.
