Liverpool chairman Tom Werner says the club's fans should savour their "dream" season as they close in on potential record-breaking Premier League title triumph.

Jurgen Klopp's side are 22 points clear at the top of the Premier League, dropping only two points from their opening 25 top-flight matches. They are well on course to surpass records including most points, most wins and most goals.

Werner acknowledges the job is still unfinished but said because such a historic campaign is unlikely to happen again in the near future fans should enjoy it while they can.

"As a supporter this has been a dream season so far, every weekend we seem to find a different star to laud. As Jurgen says, we haven't finished the job yet, we'll have time to enjoy this even more at the end of the season," he said.

"We haven't accomplished anything yet but at the same time everybody, not just Liverpool fans, can appreciate the brand of football that is on display.

"I keep telling everyone to really savour this, the record that we have kept so far - I don't think it is going to come along again so quickly. We're just enjoying the experience and looking forward to the next match.

"To me it's about the pleasure of watching so many talented players every week execute at such a high level. The competition is so great you think eventually we are going to have an off-day, but it hasn't happened yet.

'Liverpool can match Invincibles'

Liverpool are yet to lose in the league this season, and with 13 games left to play, club legend Ian Rush thinks they can match Arsenal's Invincibles, who went unbeaten for the entire 2003/04 campaign.

"There's no reason why they can't [match what Arsenal did in the 03/04 campaign]," Rush told Sky Sports News.

"It's not going to be easy. But if you look at the Invincibles, the way Liverpool are playing now, they are playing really good football. They are playing as a team, they have got a great team spirit there.

"I think what they're doing is they are going out on that pitch knowing they are going to win. It was like that for us in the '80s - it was one of them where you were going out there knowing you were going to win and thinking about nothing else, and that struck fear into the opposition. That's how well they have been playing."

Rush: Klopp's team better than 89/90 title winners

Rush admits he still finds it hard to believe Liverpool have not won the league in 30 years.

Liverpool's all-time leading scorer says Jurgen Klopp's side will go down as one of the greatest teams in the club's history if they can maintain their unbeaten run and lift their first Premier League title at the end of it.

"I keep saying to people if you would have said to us in 1990 [that we wouldn't win the league again for 30 years] we would have laughed at you," he said.

"It's been way too long for a club like Liverpool Football Club but you only get what you deserve, and the best team wins the league.

"In the '90s, Manchester United were the best team and you've had [Chelsea] and [Manchester City] come along and they have deserved it because [in the past] they have been the best team throughout the season.

"I think it's now Liverpool's turn. They've been the best team this season and if they go unbeaten then I think they can be compared to any team [in the club's history] to tell you the truth, because they are that good and no Liverpool team has ever done it. You have got to give them credit for that.

"If you compare them to the 89/90 team I think this Liverpool squad has probably got more quality.

"The one thing we had in the 89/90 team was team spirit and we had a special relationship inside the dressing room. But I think this Liverpool team has got that as well - probably with more quality."

Werner reiterated Klopp's well-publicised concerns about how much football his team have played this season, saying the calendar is currently putting too much stress on players.

"We all have to look at the calendar," said Werner, after attending a Premier League shareholders' meeting for representatives of all 20 clubs.

"We are all concerned at the amount of stress we are putting on our players. It is a bigger issue and I am not competent to know what the solution is."

When can Liverpool win the Premier League title?

Liverpool title

It's becoming inevitable that Liverpool will claim their first title in 30 years, but when exactly will it happen? And can they secure it at the home of a rival?

Here, we do the maths on the possibilities, how they can win the title at rivals Everton or Manchester City, and what records they could break along the way...

What if Liverpool and Man City keep winning?

Following Manchester City's 2-0 defeat at Tottenham, Liverpool need 18 points from their remaining 13 games to secure the Premier League title - that's six wins.

So if both Liverpool and City keep winning from this point, Liverpool's sixth win, as the current schedule goes, would be at Anfield against Crystal Palace on Saturday, March 21, live on Sky Sports.
