Liverpool FC center back Ibrahima Konate has also experienced an impressive start to his Liverpool career having yet to feature in a game that ended in defeat.
The centre-back was a standout against West Ham as he continues to grow by leaps and bounds and has flourished next to Van Dijk and both Joel Matip and Joe Gomez.
And in his 18 appearances so far, has ended up on the winning side 13 times and has Virgil Van Djikbeen a part of only five draws – with a trophy thrown in for good measure!
However, according to Opta’s Michael Reid, it is the longest unbeaten start to a player’s career at the club since Ray Houghton, who didn’t lose any of his first 23 appearances in 1987/88.
Six more games to go undefeated before he can lay claim to that record, can he do it?
