Liverpool went to Watford and defeated the hosts 3-0 on Saturday, as Jurgen Klopp’s team remained unbeaten through their first 13 matches in the Premier League. This is the first time the club have accomplished this feat since 2007-08 and the 33 points they have accrued through the first baker’s dozen of matches is a club record for the Premier League era.

With 10 wins, three draws and a +21 goal differential, they currently sit two points behind league leaders and defending champions Manchester City. After a mid-week clash at Paris Saint-Germain in UEFA Champions League action, they’ll take on Everton in the Merseyside derby next weekend.

“It’s nice,” Jurgen Klopp said at his postgame news conference about his team’s start.

“The 33 points are brilliant. Outstanding. The goal difference is really good. At this fantastic big club with their outstanding teams in the past, that this group of players can get this record is nice.”

“We all know the season isn’t finished, and those records don’t bring anything. But if somebody wants to end this record in the future it must beat this team. It’s not bad, but we will carry on. For the moment, it’s really nice.

“At 2-0 up, it wasn’t too smart, but we wanted to win and keep the clean sheet as well. I really think this group of players, they deserve it. Today they did a really good job, and I like this game a lot because it was so difficult.”

It wasn’t until the 67′ that the Reds broke the goalless deadlock as Mohamed Salah netted his ninth of the season. Trent Alexander-Arnold and Roberto Firmino added the second and third for the Reds. As the season goes along, all eyes will likely be on that second meeting between Liverpool and City.
