Jurgen Klopp reaches new managerial milestone in Liverpool’s win at Chelsea

Jurgen Klopp is a manager who has become accustomed to making history at Liverpool.

A few months ago he became the club’s first boss to lift the Premier League trophy, something he achieved with a club record 99 points. 

He lifted the title with a whopping seven matches to spare, at one point his side enjoyed a gargantuan 25-point lead at the summit, and during the season they set a record of 21 consecutive home wins in the league.

Liverpool have since bagged six points from their opening two games this season. There was the thrilling 4-3 win at home to new boys Leeds - they are now 60 games unbeaten at home - followed by a comfortable 2-0 triumph at Chelsea; a result which propelled Klopp to a new managerial milestone.

The statisticians at @LFCData have done the maths - adjusting a win to three points - and revealed that Klopp has reached the titanic 400 league points landmark in fewer games than any manager in Liverpool’s history.

It took the German gaffer all of 184 matches to catapult himself to the 400 point mark, meaning he beat Liverpool legends such as Kenny Dalglish (197 matches), Bob Paisley (206), Rafa Benitez (209) and Bill Shankly (229), all of whom have conjured up some of the greatest moments in the club’s history.

But while Klopp now has a Premier League title, Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup tucked under his managerial belt - all won since June 2019 - he still has some way to go to reach Paisley’s stunning tally of 20 trophies at Liverpool, which includes; six league titles, three European Cups and three League Cups.
