Previously former Liverpool defender Lawrenson, who predicts every Premier League result on a weekly basis for BBC Sport, foreseen that The Reds would go on an unbeaten run of 1,638 days.

It would have been the longest in English football history but the 'streak' has officially ended after 'Lawro's' latest shout.

"I know I never usually tip Liverpool to lose but I just feel like it is a massive game for both defences and this time it is the Reds who have the uncertainty at the back." Lawrensen says in his latest BBC Sport predictions.

"Liverpool centre-half Joe Gomez has started each of the past three games with a different partner and manager Jurgen Klopp might change things around again at the back."

"Since then, though, Liverpool have been absolutely outstanding and have hardly ever lost a real game either. So how good am I?

"Seriously, though, I don't go through my previous predictions for each team when I look at the fixtures each week.

"I don't pay any attention to the table based on my scores either, but the top teams often stay unbeaten because I don't tip them to lose many games - they don't, so why would I?"
