As Arsenal came from behind to defeat them 2-1, the chances of Liverpool hitting 100 points in the Premier League season have been denied.
The European champions went into the game looking for a tally of record points to make progress on their bid.
Since their coronation as champions, their form has been mixed -and it continued with the defeat at the Emirates Stadium.
Sadio Mane put Liverpool ahead after 20 minutes, but things took a turn for the worse, leading to Alexandre Lacazette scoring an equalizer when Virgil Van Dijk made a mistake 12 minutes later.
And Reiss Nelson scored his first Premier League goal on a half-time stroke to put Arsenal ahead.
Ensuring Liverpool will lose for the third time in this season’s league no goals followed in the second half, and will no longer be able to count to the record points of Manchester City.
