Liverpool has the opportunity to match the Manchester City record of 18 consecutive wins in the league on Monday night when they face the West Ham side of David Moyes.
They can also come one step closer to match the unbeaten streak of 49 Arsenal games, having passed 43 games without a loss.
However, to do so, the Reds must recover from their disappointing mid-week loss to Atlético de Madrid in the first leg of the round of 16 of the Champions League.
The Hammers, on the other hand, have slipped to the relegation zone and desperately need to start earning points.
They have won only once in the Premier League since Moyes took over as manager, losing four times, including a 2-0 loss to Liverpool on January 29.
Here is 90 minutes Preview of the start of Monday night.

Head to Head Registration
These two played each other less than a month ago, and Liverpool won 2-0 at London Stadium, with Mohamed Salah and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on the scoreboard.
Last season, the Irons’ visit to Anfield ended in a 4-0 beating, with Sadio Mané with a key and Salah also scoring. In the previous campaign, they also sent four, with Salah, Mané and Roberto Firmino all scoring.
However, Moyes will look for the 1-1 draw of his team with the Reds a little over a year ago in search of inspiration so that they can get away with something that helps them in their fight against relegation.
Something that we have not said much this season: Liverpool enters this after a defeat, something that has not happened since its defeat of the Champions League against Napoli in September.
In addition to his defeat in the Wanda Metropolitano, Liverpool has been relentless in all competitions in recent times.
Since the turn of the year, they have won seven in the rebound, including victories over Man United, Tottenham, Wolves and Sheffield United.
West Ham, on the other hand, is in a worrying way that has left them in the 18th position. Their 2-0 loss to Man City on Wednesday was their fourth consecutive loss as a Premier League visitor.
Here are the five previous results of each team in all competitions:
|Atlético Madrid 1-0 Liverpool (02/18)||Man City 2-0 West Ham (02/19)|
|Norwich City 0-1 Liverpool (02/15)||West Ham 3-3 Brighton (02/02)|
|Liverpool 1-0 Shrewsbury (04/02)||West Ham 0-2 Liverpool (01/29)|
|Liverpool 4-0 Southampton (01/02)||West Ham 0-1 West Brom (01/25)|
|West Ham 0-2 Liverpool (01/29)||Leicester City 4-1 West Ham (01/22)|
As a general rule, Liverpool tends to win the football matches in which it competes. The determination will be even greater after losing during the week.
They are getting close to securing the Premier League title, as well as breaking all-time records for the most wins and undefeated games. The incentive for the Merseysiders is still huge.
West Ham will be praying for his opponents to have a rare day of rest. After all, it seems unlikely. Expect the Reds to be relentless again Monday night.
Prediction: Liverpool 3-0 West Ham
