Liverpool Have Recorded More Points Than A Manchester United Team Ever Managed In A 38-Game Season

Liverpool's win over Brighton and Hove Albion last night means they have now recorded more points than a Manchester United team has ever achieved in a 38-game Premier League season.

The 3-1 victory, achieved through a double from Mo Salah and a goal from skipper Jordan Henderson, was the team's first away win since February moved the Reds to 92 points with four games remaining.

And as a result of the win at the AMEX, the new Premier League champions have now managed a higher points tally than Sir Alex Ferguson's best total across 38 games.

United accrued 92 points in the 1993/94 league-winning campaign but that was when there were 22 teams and therefore a further four games.

Their best points tally in a 38-game campaign came in the 1999/2000 season when they finished on 91 points, one behind what Liverpool are currently on heading into the last stretch of fixtures.

Liverpool's title winners are also two points better off than Arsenal's 'Invincibles' from 2003/04 - the only side to have gone the whole season unbeaten en route to winning the Premier League.

Jurgen Klopp's troops could still make more points history, however, as three wins from their final four games against Burnley, Arsenal, Chelsea and Newcastle will see them set a new record for the amount of points accumulated in a single Premier League season.

The current record is 100 points, achieved by Manchester City in Pep Guardiola's first title triumph in 2017/18.
