Liverpool's unbeaten run is over but Jurgen Klopp's team could still become record-breakers on their way to the title.
Their shock 3-0 defeat to Watford at Vicarage Road on February 29 means Liverpool's run of consecutive wins was ended at 18 - level with Manchester City's existing record - and their unbeaten run dating back to January of last year stopped at 44 games.

The biggest prize for Liverpool remains ending their 30-year wait for a league title but there are other season-long records that can still be broken before the 2019/20 campaign is over.
The records Liverpool are chasing down...
Most wins - 32 (Manchester City, 2017/18 and 2018/19)
When could Liverpool break it? Burnley (H), April 25
Manchester City ripped up the record books when Pep Guardiola lifted his first Premier League title in 2018, with the kind of dominating season the league had never seen before. Despite City winning all but six games across the entire campaign, and repeating that feat last season, Liverpool are well on course to not only beat City's record haul, but potentially better it.
Now back to winning ways after beating Bournemouth, Liverpool still have both City and Everton away to face, and could break Guardiola's wins record at Burnley in April and potentially end up with a mammoth 36 wins by the end of the season. They can still afford to drop points in three more games before the end of the season and overtake City.
Most points - 100 (Manchester City, 2017/18)
When could Liverpool break it? Arsenal (A), May 2
Gabriel Jesus' last-minute winner for Manchester City at Southampton on the last day of the season in 2017/18 did not mean much in a title race that was long since over but Guardiola's celebrations on the touchline at St Mary's told their own story about how significant reaching the target of a three-figure points tally was for the manager.
Most points in a Premier League season
City were only two points away from matching that last season, but Liverpool can afford to drop eight more points between now and the end of the campaign and still beat that incredible figure.
At present, Liverpool could smash past 100 points against Arsenal in May, and could even afford one draw up until that point to still break the record.
Most away wins in a season - 16 (Manchester City, 2017/18)
When could Liverpool break it? Newcastle (A), May 17
Winning all but two away games in a Premier League season sounds like a fantasy to most - after all, even the highest-points winners in the division's history, Manchester City's 2017/18 team, dropped points on three of their road trips.
Liverpool's remaining away games
- vs Everton - March 16, live on Sky Sports
- vs Manchester City - April 5, live on Sky Sports
- vs Brighton - April 20, live on Sky Sports
- vs Arsenal - May 2
- vs Newcastle - May 17
But Liverpool are potentially five matches away from beating that record. They will need to win the lot though - culminating in victory away to Newcastle on the final day of the season.
Most home wins - 18 (Chelsea, 2005/06; Manchester United, 2010/11; Manchester City, 2011/12 and 2018/19)
When could Liverpool break it? Chelsea (H), May 9
There is no margin for error if Liverpool are to break the home record too. No team has ever won every home game in a season. That said, there are only four more games to go for Klopp's side to become the first team to ever manage the feat.
Liverpool's remaining home games
- vs Crystal Palace - March 21, live on Sky Sports
- vs Aston Villa - April 12, live on Sky Sports
- vs Burnley - April 25
- vs Chelsea - May 9
Of those four, two are against Crystal Palace and Aston Villa, both in the bottom half of the table; one is against 10th-placed Burnley; and the other is the visit of fourth-placed Chelsea.
Liverpool have not lost a league game on home soil since Palace beat them in April 2017, and have since won 45 and drawn 10 across what's approaching three unbeaten years.
Biggest title-winning margin - 19 points (Manchester City, 2017/18)
When could Liverpool break it? Manchester City (A), April 5
Liverpool are currently 25 points clear at the top, but Manchester City have a game in hand so can bring the gap down to 22, if they win their rearranged clash against Arsenal.
Should they win that game, Liverpool can afford to drop only two points more than City by the end of the season - and that is likely to mean at least avoiding defeat at the Etihad Stadium on April 5.
