That’s hard to beat…
In November Liverpool did Sunderland a bit of a favour, their draw at Manchester City meaning the Blues fell short of equalling the Lads’ English total of consecutive home wins.
The record dates back to a golden period in the club’s history between 1890 and 1892, but a more recent run saw the team go 23 games unbeaten at the start of the 1998-99 season. The campaign would end triumphantly with the Division One title, with the side also reaching the semi-finals of the Worthington (League) Cup.
Starting with an opening day victory over Queens Park Rangers, the sequence included five games of the cup run and was only ended when Barnsley visited Wearside in late November and pulled off a surprise win. They then lost only four more before the final day against Birmingham City.
