Liverpool managed this in their 7-2 thrashing of Lincoln City in the Carabao Cup this evening, with Jurgen Klopp’s men scoring some absolute stunners.
The pick of the bunch was probably Xherdan Shaqiri’s superb free-kick in the first half, but Takumi Minamino and Curtis Jones also put away some lovely efforts.
Liverpool fans will no doubt be thrilled with their team’s sharp shooting, and it’s quite something to match a record that had stood for so long.
Liverpool’s win now sets up a tie against Arsenal in the next round of the Carabao Cup.
