Liverpool made history on Sunday by becoming the first Premier League side to have won four consecutive away games by a margin of at least three goals.

The Reds made the trip to the Vitality Stadium to face Bournemouth, with goals from Philippe Coutinho, Dejan Lovren, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino securing a resounding 4-0 win over Eddie Howe's men.

And in doing so, Jurgen Klopp's charges added to 5-1, 3-0 and 4-1 results against Brighton, Stoke and West Ham, respectively, to ensure the Merseyside outfit became the first top-flight team to win four straight away games by at least three goals.

Inconsistency has cost Liverpool at times this season as they sit in fourth place in the league, but there can be no doubt as to the sheer quality Klopp has at his disposal in terms of attacking options, highlighted by Mohamed Salah becoming the first Premier League player to score more than 20 goals in all competitions.

Manchester City's exploits at the top of the table may be dominating the headlines, but Liverpool's potency in front of goal hasn't stopped the Reds from breaking records in the background.
