The only club in the Premier League with a longer current unbeaten record than Liverpool is reigning Champions Manchester City, who are still unbeaten this season.
Following the Reds' 0-0 draw at Swansea City, Brendan Rodgers' team are now eight without defeat in the league, equalling former manager Kenny Dalglish's best run (achieved twice, once in 2010-11 and once in 2011-12).
During this most recent stretch, Liverpool have drawn five and won three of those matches, scoring 13 at conceding six goals.
It's progress, but the Swansea match should have yielded better figures than a single point and a fourth clean sheet in eight league games.
In the first half, despite starting slowly, Liverpool were the better side at the Liberty Stadium. They created four clear chances to take the lead and were denied by a variety of means, including last season's great enemy, the woodwork.
But they failed to capitalise on that superiority after the break.
In fact, Liverpool's second half performance was unambitious, meek and uninspired. They lacked pace and fluidity in the final third, committed few numbers forward and generally looked far more hopeful than expectant of scoring a goal.
There haven't been too many games this season where Liverpool genuinely haven't looked like a half-decent side still trying to find their way, but the second period at the Liberty Stadium certainly comes under that category.
