Liverpool’s 2021/22 season was a dream, and while ending in disappointment it was a campaign that saw Jurgen Klopp‘s men set an incredible benchmark for themselves and others.
The Reds enjoyed a thrilling season, adding two trophies to the cabinet and coming agonisingly close to another two.
With a maximum 63 games played in 2021/22, Liverpool left no stone unturned in search of a historic season and along the way provided fans with moments and memories to cherish.
This squad continue to create the history they always longed for and there is still plenty of chapters in their book to write, and the latest chapter was an impressive one.
Here are 17 records this incredible Liverpool side broke this season, as a collective and as individuals.
– Before the 2021/22 season, no English team had ever reached the final of the European Cup, FA Cup, and League Cup Final in the same season.
– It made for the longest quadruple hunt by an English club, with Liverpool’s bid only ending on May 22.
– Liverpool’s tally of 148 goals in all competitions (63 games) is the most they’ve ever managed in a single campaign in club history.
– Klopp’s side ended the Premier League with their biggest ever lead over Everton, with 53 points. The Reds ended the campaign with 92 points, and the Toffees 39.
– Liverpool reached their seventh European final in the 21st century, meaning the Reds are the English team with the most continental finals in that time.
– Mohamed Salah became the first player to score on the opening day of the Premier League for five seasons in a row.
Watford (2017/18), West Ham (2018/19), Norwich (2019/20), Leeds (2020/21) and Norwich (2021/22).
– A tally of 46 victories in one season set a new club record, with the previous best return 43 in 2019/20.
– Sadio Mane surpassed Didier Drogba to become the highest-scoring African in the knockout stages of the Champions League with 15 goals.

– Virgil van Dijk has never been on a losing side of a league game at Anfield for 64 games, the most for a single club of any player in Premier League history.
– Liverpool’s League Cup triumph took their trophy tally in the competition to 9, the most of any other club.

The first English team to achieve that feat having surpassed Sunderland‘s record of 17 set in 1927.
– Salah moved ahead of Steven Gerrard as the club’s all-time leading goalscorer in the Champions League, with 34.
