Wins. On September 17, 1974, they defeated Stromsgodset 11-0 in the European Cup Winners' Cup. On February 18th, 1899, they defeated Rotherham Town 10-1 in the Second Division. On December 19, 2020, the record away league win was 0-7 against Crystal Palace F.C. in the Premier League.
These are the three largest wins by Liverpool FC in their history. They earned their place in the history books with these victories.
Liverpool became the first English team to beat Stromsgodset when they traveled to Norway to face them in the European Cup Winners' Cup. The match took place at Ullevaal Stadium, Oslo and finished 11-0 to Liverpool. It was the most one-sided loss in Norwegian football history.
Two months later, they defeated Rotherham Town 10-1 in the Second Division. This victory put them into first place in the table. They maintained their lead at the top of the table until the end of the season.
Finally, on January 16, 2019, Liverpool won 1-4 at home against Crystal Palace in the FA Cup fifth round. This win guaranteed that they would take part in the next stage of the competition. Liverpool had been drawn against Championship side Palace. However, it was decided after the draw that Palace would replace Leeds United in the next round due to the latter club's financial problems.
It is still the record score away from home in the competition.
Liverpool has also scored eleven goals on eight other occasions, most recently against Stoke City on November 23, 2019. They have never been beaten by eleven goals twice in one season. The record for most goals in a single match is held by Manchester United who scored fifteen against Derby County in 1938. This record was later equaled by Leeds United and Chelsea and now stands as the all-time British top division record.
Liverpool has also reached ten goals on eight other occasions, most recently against Stoke City on November 23, 2019. They have never been behind at any point during these matches.

However, only two of those goals were scored after 90 minutes of play. The majority of them were scored in either extra time or penalties.

The score came from Peter Dobson, Jeff Hughes, Geoff Hurst, and Ronnie Whelan for Stoke. Simon Mignolet did not save any shots he faced during the game.

They had earlier beaten Coventry City 4-0 at Anfield with four first-half goals. Ian Rush and John Aldridge scored twice each while Dominic Matteo netted once.
This is the second time that they have won five matches in a single League and Cup competition after doing so in 1977 when they also won the League Cup. That year, they started the season with five wins out of five before losing their first game of the season against Manchester United.

The winner of the match will advance to the quarterfinals of the tournament where they would meet one of the two remaining semifinalists - Barcelona or Roma. The match for the right to next year's final will be played in Rome or Barcelona depending on who wins this year's European Cup.
The club's previous best league finish was second in the top level in 1928-29, when it was still known as the First Division. Leicester have won seven second-tier titles in a row and have appeared in four FA Cup finals. They've also won the League Cup three times and competed in five European tournaments.
Leicester City were founded in 1884 by members of the Freemason Lodge who played rugby at the time. The club initially played its games on public grounds, but after entering the English Football League in 1896 they moved into the newly built Filbert Street Stadium which is still used today. The club eventually became one of the most successful in England with six League Championships and three European Cups to their name.
Before the 2008-09 season started, Leicester City announced a profit of $8 million on revenues of $120 million, thus becoming the first team to turn a profit in the Premier League. The club has since then continued to improve its performance with another season of profit announced in 2014-15. It currently plays in the Champions League tournament.
Leicester City has a long-standing relationship with the freemasons fraternity. Several players have been made freemasons during their time at the club including Billy Wright, Harvey Barnes, Gary Lineker, and Paul Dickov. The current manager, Craig Shakespeare, is also a mason.
