The 10 Premier League Records Liverpool Could Break Before The End Of The Season
Liverpool are on track to lift their first league title in 30 years after a remarkable start to the 2019/20 campaign.
Jurgen Klopp's side have notched 19 wins out of a possible 20 so far and are currently 13 points ahead of second place Leicester City with a game in hand.
The Reds look on course to break the record for the earliest title victory ever, currently held by Manchester United who lifted the title on April 14th.
And if the Premier League leaders continue to win games, week in, week out, they have the opportunity to break a further nine records.
Here they are in all their glory:
- Best start to a season in 21 games:
Manchester City currently hold the record for the best start to a season after picking up 59 points from 21 games in 2017/18, but Liverpool, who are currently on 58 points, have the chance to trump that record against Tottenham this weekend.
- Most consecutive home wins
Manchester City notched 20 consecutive wins at the Etihad between 2011 and 2012, but Jurgen Klopp's side could break that record in the coming weeks against Manchester United, Southampton and West Ham.
Liverpool currently have 18 straight victories at Anfield.
- Most consecutive wins
Surprise, surprise. Manchester City recorded 18 wins in a row between August and December of 2017, but Liverpool have the chance to break that if they win every game until February 29th.
They must secure victories against Spurs, Manchester United, Wolves, West Ham, Southampton, Norwich, West Ham and Watford to do so.
- Longest unbeaten run
Arsenal's unforgettable 'invincibles' side went 49 games unbeaten during the 2003/04 season and beyond, while Liverpool are currently 37 games unbeaten.
This might just be the most difficult record to break in this list, but an achievable one based on their incredible form.
- Longest time unbeaten
Arsenal spent 537 days unbeaten when they went 49 games unbeaten, obviously.
Liverpool are currently a year unbeaten after beating Sheffield United at the beginning of January and if they manage to stay unbeaten until the end of the current campaign, they will overtake The Gunners in June.
- Most wins in a season
Manchester City have won 32 out of 38 games in their last two Premier League title wins, but if Liverpool notch 14 victories in their next 18 matches, Jurgen Klopp's side will break the record.
It's certainly achievable, this one.
- Most home wins in a season
Chelsea (2005/06), Manchester United (2010/11) and Manchester City (2011/12 and 2018/19) all recorded 18 wins out of a possible 19 but Liverpool, who have won all 11 so far this season, can break that record if they secure home wins against Manchester United, Southampton, West Ham, Bournemouth, Crystal Palace, Aston Villa, Burnley and Chelsea on May 9th.
- Most away wins in a season
Pep Guardiola's scintillating Manchester City side were victorious on 16 out of a possible 18 occasions during the 2017/18 season meanwhile this Liverpool side have eight wins out of a possible nine so far, and could trump that record if they manage beat Tottenham, Wolves, West Ham, Norwich, Watford, Everton, Manchester City, Brighton, Arsenal and Newcastle.
- Most points in a season
Manchester City are once again the record holders after becoming the only club to break the 100 points mark in 2017/18 but if Liverpool win all their remaining games, they will end up on a staggering 112 points.
