REDS END GOAL RUSH

Liverpool's 2-0 win on Sunday ended a sequence of scoring in 24 consecutive home league games - a record for us in the Premier League.

Liverpool's 2-0 win on Sunday ended a sequence of scoring in 24 consecutive home league games - a record for us in the Premier League.

SCORING IN CONSECUTIVE HOME LEAGUE GAMES

Liverpool became the first visiting club to keep a clean sheet at White Hart Lane on Sunday since Manchester United did so back in February last year.

The sequence spanned 24 matches, the last six of season 2006-07 and the first 18 this campaign. It beat by some margin our previous best run of scoring in home Premier League games, of 14 matches set between September, 2001 and March, 2002.

We have to go back over 40 years since we last strung together so many home League games without failing to score a goal. That was a 25 match sequence between March 13, 1965 and and April 16, 1966.

We last went through a season netting in every Football League home game during 1961-62 and that coupled with the Double winning season of 1960-61 produced a 53 match run from April 30, 1960 to November 17, 1962.

Incredibly, that was not sufficient to overhaul the club record which stands at 57 games between April 28, 1951 and December 25, 1953.

In addition to those mentioned, we also scored in every home game during the 1928-29 second division campaign and 1956-57 when finishing runners-up.
