Liverpool record highest goal tally after eight games for 121 years

Liverpool‘s excellent attacking prowess at the start of this season has been reflected in an historic stat.

Not since the 1895/96 season have the Reds scored as much goals after their opening eight competitive matches.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have scored 24 goals, across two different competitions, with five of those coming in their 5-1 league win at home to Hull over the weekend.

So far, their over tally, has been contributed by seven different players with four scoring three apiece.

Summer signing Sadio Mane, who joined from Southampton, is one of those players and he’s joined by playmakers Adam Lallana, Philippe Coutinho and midfielder turned full-back James Milner whose strikes have all come from the penalty spot.

Liverpool, who are missing European football this season, visit Swansea City next before the international break.

Once resuming they entertain Manchester United before entertaining West Brom and then Tottenham Hotspur in the EFL Cup.
