It was a season enshrined in history, one which made dreams come true as title No. 19 was secured, and, here, we look at the numbers behind Liverpool’s stunning season.

It is a campaign which will forever be etched into the club’s folklore and here are some of the numbers which defined the staggering season which was 2019/20.
