England legend Gary Lineker has reacted to Liverpool’s current Premier League form via social media.
The Reds defeated Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 away from home yesterday thanks to Roberto Firmino’s first-half strike. The victory put Liverpool 16 points clear at the top of the table.
To gain such a substantial lead, Liverpool have had to remain unbeaten in the Premier League thus far.
After 21 matches, the Reds have only dropped points in one fixture, which was the 1-1 draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford back in October.
Lineker has taken to social media to react to Liverpool’s unbeaten run thus far.
21 Premier League games played for @LFC with 20 wins and a draw. That’s utterly nuts.

The more you think about the above numbers, the more ridiculous it sounds. Liverpool’s form is out of this world.
Liverpool supporters have always had faith Jurgen Klopp would bring success to Anfield, however, it would be fair to say that no one envisioned Klopp creating a side which is basically unbeatable.
The title race is far from over, but the Reds certainly are the favourites to claim the trophy. This side are so mentally strong that they can deal with whatever challenge is thrown at them.
