On a historic day that Jordan Henderson will aim to remember with a victory, Mohamed Salah is pursuing John Toshack’s record against West Ham.
Past season, Liverpool did not lose in any of their six league trips to London, and have only lost one of their last 17 Premier League matches in the city – against Arsenal in July 2020, after they had won the league.
They have scored at least three goals in each of their five away league games this season, the first time they have done so in the first five games of a league season.
In addition, Liverpool has won more Premier League games (31) against West Ham than any other side in the tournament.
What Do You Think of These Records?
Jordan Henderson might make his 300th league appearance for Liverpool, making him the 44th player in the club’s history and just the fourth in the Premier League’s history, behind Jamie Carragher (508), Steven Gerrard (504) and Sami Hyypia (318).
In addition, he might make his 350th appearance for Liverpool in all competitions.
Liverpool may potentially establish a new outright club mark of 26 games undefeated in all competitions since entering the Football League in 1893, surpassing the 25 set by Bob Paisley between March and September 1982.
From February 1893 to February 1894, they went 30 games without losing, including seven Lancashire League games.
And the Reds have never scored a hat-trick in three consecutive league games away from home (Firmino at Watford and Salah at Manchester United in the last two away on road in the league). Is it possible for them to do so on Sunday?
