Jürgen Klopp can record his 200th league victory as Liverpool boss when his side host Chelsea on Wednesday.

If the Reds take three points from the Anfield encounter, Klopp will reach a double century of league wins faster than any other manager in the club's history.

The 8.15pm GMT kick-off with Mauricio Pochettino's men will be Klopp's 318th league game in charge, with Bob Paisley (355 matches), Bill Shankly (378) and Tom Watson (434) the previous Liverpool custodians to reach 200 league wins.

Read on for more facts and figures ahead of the clash with the Blues…

Trent Alexander-Arnold's next appearance for Liverpool will be his 300th in all competitions. Only Ian Rush and Emlyn Hughes have reached that figure for the club at a younger age.

Darwin Nunez is one Premier League outing away from bringing up his half-century.

Nunez is the first player this season in Europe's top five leagues to reach double figures for non-penalty goals and assists (10 each) in all competitions.
