This win over Fulham at Craven Cottage was their 10th in the Premiership this season and no other side - not even mighty Manchester United - can better that figure.
It was also the sort of victory that wins titles and Liverpool had to defend for much of the game against Jean Tigana's stylish side.
And defend they did as they repulsed everything Fulham could throw at them with much ease it must be said.
Nicolas Anelka opened the scoring when he netted his third goal for the club and in stoppage time, as Fulham threw everyone forward in search of an equaliser, substitute Jari Litmanen scored their second.
After playing five matches for Liverpool last month, Michael Owen's hamstrings were given a breather against Fulham and the England striker started on the bench.
That handed Anelka a starting place alongside Emile Heskey and the Frenchman took full advantage to score after 13 minutes.
Danny Murphy found Anelka on the right-hand side of the area and his initial right-footed shot hit Rufus Brevett on the foot.
Anelka collected the rebound, advanced into the Fulham box and curled the ball home left-footed into the bottom far corner to register his third goal for the club.
Back came the Cottagers and Louis Saha volleyed against the crossbar before
Stephane Henchoz made a superb tackle on Steve Marlet in the Liverpool area as the striker prepared to pull the trigger.
Fulham continued to create the better chances and Marlet released the recalled Luis Boa Morte down the left and when the fit-again Jerzy Dudek partially saved his shot, Henchoz was on hand to head the loose ball over the top for a corner.
Fulham were forced to make an early reshuffle when Lee Clark, who has been out for over two months with an Achilles injury, came on in place of the injured Sean Davis, only to be replaced himself later on by John Collins.
Tigana's side maintained the pressure and Steed Malbranque wrong-footed Abel Xavier only for his drive to come off Henchoz's chest and go behind for a corner.
But for all Fulham's pressure, Liverpool's well-drilled backline refused to buckle.
Henchoz, who received a gash in his left leg tackling Marlet, was having a towering game at the heart of the Liverpool defence and he was getting his head, body or whatever in the way of any Fulham attempt at goal.
Fulham thought they should have been awarded a penalty two minutes after the interval when Boa Morte went down under a challenge from Xavier.
But instead of pointing to the spot, referee Alan Wiley booked the Frenchman for diving to the fury of the home fans.
It seemed a harsh decision and Xavier had been leaning on Boa Morte with his left arm.
The game opened up in the second half and and Edwin van der Sar denied
Liverpool a second when he touched Murphy's right-foot curling shot around his left-hand post for a corner.
Dudek then saved a Marlet header from Steve Finnan's free-kick before he pushed away Saha's attempted cross after it was deflected off Henchoz's head.
With just under 20 minutes left, Nicky Barmby replaced Vladimir Smicer to make his first appearance since injuring his ankle ligaments in October.
Liverpool might have scored a second near the end and the hard-working Heskey shot wide from Anelka's right-wing cross.
Marlet should have snatched a point for Fulham four minutes from time when
Legwinski played him through on the left, only for the French striker to shoot past Dudek's far post.
His miss looked all the more glaring when in stoppage time, Litmanen, who had come on for Anelka, nodded Xavier's long ball beyond van der Sar, who was stranded outside his box, and netted from the tight angle on the right to seal Liverpool's fifth win in their last six league games.
