The Premier League is upon us once more, with Liverpool to take to the field in league action for the first time in 106 days when they make the trip to Goodison Park.

Liverpool are back on Sunday, in what is one of the most highly anticipated fixtures in any season: the Merseyside derby.

Their position 22 points clear at the top of the table comes after a relentless 29-game run that saw points dropped on just two occasions.

But with over three months since the Reds last ran out in a competitive fixture, it is time to take stock of their feats in the Premier League before football came to a standstill in mid-March.
