Liverpool Have Surpassed Arsenal's 03/04 'Invincibles' Points Tally
Liverpool have surpassed Arsenal's 'Invincibles' points tally.
Liverpool recorded their 28th Premier League victory by smashing already relegated Huddersfield Town 5-0 on Friday.
Goals from Naby Keita, Sadio Mane (x2) and Mohamed (x2) lifted the Merseyside club to 91 points with two league games remaining.
Arsenal amassed 90 points when they won the Premier League title back in the 2003/04 season.
Liverpool have now surpassed Arsenal's 03-04 'Invincibles' points tally.

Arsene Wenger's side which included the likes of Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira won 26 league games as they gathered 90 points.
What's more, Liverpool also have 12 more points than Manchester United's treble winning side in 1999.
Jurgen Klopp's team have mounted an incredible title challenge. They've lost just one game this season as they go head-to-head with Manchester City for the Premier League title.
And speaking after the game, the German boss admits it's crazy that Liverpool have gained 91 points this campaign.
"OK, 91 points, it's crazy," he said following Friday's victory. "In the end, we cannot do more than win these games and that's what we did so far and what we try to do again.
"Why should we think where City could slip or not? If we do, the job in these two (remaining) games and something happens in the other games, then we are there.
"If not, then we still did our best, our 100 per cent best and that's the only thing we can expect from us.
"You cannot ask for luck, you cannot ask for destiny, you have to work for it and then the rest around happens, and that's exactly what we do.
"I wasn't 100 per cent sure what happens when United played City and I came into training the next morning and the mood was exactly like before, really good."
Liverpool return to league action next Saturday when they travel to Rafael Benitez's Newcastle United.
