Two goals from Ismaila Sarr, and one from Troy Deeney ensured that Liverpool's unbeaten run was halted at 44 matches, five short of Arsenal's unbeaten run of 49 matches, which is the longest unbeaten in the top-flight English football. 

Arsenal stayed unbeaten between May 2003 and October 2005, a run that went on for 49 matches. It began with a 6-1 win over Southampton in May 2003 and it continued throughout the 2003-04 season as the Gunners won the league title as Invincibles. The run ended at Old Trafford after Manchester United won the match in a controversial manner. Ruud van Nistelrooy scored a penalty after Wayne Rooney dived and the Englishman then doubled the lead.

Liverpool are the first team in the last 15 seasons to come so close to matching Arsenal's record. However, they fell short on Saturday night.
