Klopp sets new Liverpool record

English Premier League

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has once again written his name into the club's history books after becoming the fastest manager to lead his side to 400 goals in the Premier League.

The reigning champions recorded an impressive 3-1 victory over Arsenal at Anfield on Monday, courtesy of goals from 2019 African Footballer of the Year Sadio Mane, Scottish defender Andrew Robertson and new recruit Diogo Jota.

Jota's effort, which was Liverpool's third of the night and his first since joining from Wolverhampton Wanderers, was the 400th goal scored by the club in England's top flight during Klopp's tenure, in what was the German manager's 185th league match in charge.

According to the Reds' official statistician Ged Rea, that return means Klopp has led his side to the goalscoring milestone in fewer matches than any other manager in the club's history.

The former Borussia Dortmund boss' side has been equally impressive at the other end, having conceded less than a goal per game during the same period of time, shipping just 179 strikes in the league since Klopp's arrival in 2015.

Those figures have contributed towards the 53-year-old boasting a remarkable 65% win record in the Premier League, having won 121 matches, drawn a further 41 and suffered only 23 defeats since replacing Brendan Rodgers at the helm.

Liverpool's victory over the Gunners also saw them extend their incredible unbeaten run at Anfield to 61 league matches without defeat, dating back to April 2017 – they are now just two games shy of the club's all-time record.
