But that record looked set to be broken by the Reds juggernaut this term - with the Merseysiders not only emulating Arsenal's record, but accumulating far more points.

He told beIN Sports: "Yes, it was very satisfying when I saw Liverpool lose. You always want to be the only one to do something.

"Liverpool could really have made it. But this just goes to show how difficult it is to repeat this feat.

"At least I received a lot of messages from Arsenal supporters on that day.”
