Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard couldn't care less about their winning run at this stage in the season.
The victory over Manchester City - secured by Philippe Coutinho after a sliced clearance from Blues captain Vincent Kompany fell to him - was the Reds' 10th successive league win but the bare statistics alone do not excite Gerrard if they do not prove meaningful at the end of the season.
"You get nothing for 10 successive league wins apart from a pat on the back, and we've had plenty of those," he said.
"What is key as a footballer is getting something to show for all the hard work - we could go and win 13 in a row and lose the last one and we won't get anything, no one will remember it.
"The only thing people will remember is if we go on to achieve what we all want."
