Premier League: Can ‘Liverpool break further records’ this season?

Published

 

on

Liverpool continued their phenomenal league run this weekend with a win over Southampton, with Manchester City losing at Tottenham Hotspur.

That means there is now 22 points separating first and second, with the Reds now well on their way to clinching that elusive title.

Saturday’s win over Southampton also means the club have now won 20 league home games in a row.

Jurgen Klopp’s men now boast 24 wins from their 25 games. They’ve drawn once in the Premier League all season, with Adam Lallana’s late equaliser at Old Trafford saving their only draw back in October.

It’s zero losses so far in the campaign, and they’ll be aiming to keep it that way for their remaining 13 games.

A busy February sees the Merseyside outfit compete in the FA Cup and Champions League against Shrewsbury and Atletico Madrid respectively. But it’s clear that the league trophy is top of the list for everyone in and around the club this season. They’ll face Norwich, West Ham and Watford in the month in a bid to keep their unbeaten run going.

The Reds now have 100 points from their last 102 available in the league, and are among the best ever longest unbeaten runs in English top-flight history.

Arsenal’s Invincibles will take some beating, having gone 49 games unbeaten in 2003-04. Liverpool are now joint second on 42. Nottingham Forest also achieved 42 in 1977-78, with Chelsea going 40 games without losing in 2004-05.

Klopp’s side have already bagged 60 league goals, and have conceded just 15. They sit on 73 points, but will undoubtedly be aiming for the maximum available.

Champions Man City currently hold the record for the most points in a Premier League campaign. Their 100 points in 2017-18, however, may just be overtaken by the Reds this season.

Chelsea are also among the top points scorers, reaching 95 and 93 in 2004-05 and 2016-17 respectively. They also hit the 91 point mark in 2005-06, as did Manchester United in 1999-00.

But Liverpool are hot on their heels. They are currently 2/5 to continue their fine form and get 100+ points this season.

They are available at 4/6 to break City’s record and get 101 points or more, and 11/4 to get 105+ points.
And it’s currently 12/1 for the club to remain unbeaten in the league and go on to win another Champions League trophy.

And finally it’s 18/1 for the side to reach 110+ league points.
