For the first time, Anfield united in singing “We’re gonna win the league” as Mohamed Salah slotted home in the 92nd minute.
Liverpool’s win over Manchester United last Sunday felt like a turning point. While everyone knew the Reds were going to win the league, this time they started to believe it themselves.
The fixture broke ground for those in the stands but also broke records in the airwaves – as it took the record of becoming the most watched Premier League match of the season on Sky Sports.
Before Christmas, Sky released their top five fixtures of all-time to the Mirror- but there is already a new entry after Jamie Carragher confirmed the viewing figures from the old M62 rivalry.
He tweeted: “Viewing figures of 3.9m peak yesterday at Anfield! And people say they don’t want Liverpool to win the league!! The country is gripped!!! 2nd biggest ever for @SkySports the highest was also a Man United defeat.”
But what are the other top matches? Starsport look back…

Adam Lallana struck late to secure a draw for Liverpool which is, at time of writing, the only time they have dropped points this season.

It has been a stellar year for Sky Sports as their Premier League viewing figures went through the roof.
Liverpool all but confirmed their title tilt with their thumping win over Manchester City in November, which was, until this past weekend, the most-watched Reds game in the Premier League ever.
