'Unprecedented' could be one among the array of words that will be used to describe Liverpool's title-winning season come May. The Reds are currently 22 points ahead of the chasing pack (read: Manchester City) and are unbeaten in their last 42 Premier League games. Seven more wins in the league will haul them level with Arsene Wenger's Invincibles. However, Liverpool have been here before, standing on the cusp of ending their league title drought. The closest they came before last season was back in 2013/14, with one man leading the charge - club legend Steven Gerrard.

While a 'We Go Again' moment is effectively ruled out, Steven Gerrard will be pleased with the Reds ending their 30-year wait for the Premier League.
