Liverpool set a club record of 64 top-flight home matches unbeaten by overwhelming Leicester City in a 3-0 win in the Premier League.
Diogo Jota had a record of his own, becoming the first player to score in his first four home top-division league appearances for the Reds with a glancing header to add to Jonny Evans' own-goal in the first half.
Roberto Firmino made amends for hitting the post twice by scoring the third in the 87th minute from a corner as Juergen Klopp's side - undefeated in the league at Anfield since April 2017 - eclipsed the great team of the late 1970s and early 1980s, whose own run was coincidentally ended by Leicester in 1981.
"It is really difficult to achieve something like this but when you think about how tight a lot of the games were and the boys had to dig in and they did that," Klopps said.
"The boys on the pitch performance-wise are incredible and that is the only reason for the number."
With Liverpool's absentee list including Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk, Jordan Henderson and Trent Alexander-Arnold, the Foxes and their former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers would have fancied their chances of a first win at Anfield in more than 20 years.
However, the hosts were well worth their lead at halftime as Jota took centre stage, occupying the wide-right position usually the preserve of Salah.
Jota headed in a cross from Andy Robertson for his seventh goal in his past six club matches to give the hosts a cushion after Evans had headed James Milner's corner past his own goalkeeper at a corner.
Firmino's persistence eventually paid off as Liverpool moved level on points with Tottenham at the top of the table, behind only on goal difference.
Meanwhile, Nicolas Pepe was sent off for a headbutt to leave Arsenal clinging on for a goalless draw at Leeds United.
Five minutes into the second half Pepe squared up to Ezgjan Alioski and pushed his head into the Leeds winger's.
Referee Anthony Taylor went to the pitch-side monitor to review the incident and showed the Gunners' record signing a straight red card.
Pepe had complained last week that he was not getting enough playing time under Mikel Arteta.
But the Ivory Coast winger will not have endeared himself to his boss after only his second Premier League start of the season ended in disgrace.
"It's unacceptable," Arteta said.
"At this level you cannot do it."
Fulham suffered more penalty anguish - with Ivan Cavaleiro skying his effort from 12 years- as a brace from Dominic Calvert-Lewin helped Everton to a 3-2 win and sixth spot on the ladder.
Sebastien Haller's thunderbolt gave West Ham United a 1-0 win at Sheffield United, who remain bottom.
