Liverpool's 2-1 victory over Southampton on Saturday saw Jürgen Klopp amass 300 league points in fewer games than any manager in the club's history.

The trip to St Mary's was the German's 146th league match in charge of the Reds since taking over in October 2015.

The three points claimed after goals from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino helped Klopp surpass the mark previously set by Sir Kenny Dalglish, who reached the threshold in 150 fixtures.

Club statistician Ged Rea has broken down the numbers based on three points for a win.
