After 25 games, Liverpool is cruising as the Premier League enters into their first “winter break”. They have amassed 73 points, smashed numerous records and are well-placed to break more.
As a quick summary, these are a few accolades of the Mighty Reds thus far:
- 100 points from the 102 points
- 42 games unbeaten
- Beaten all 19 other teams after 24 games
- 53 games unbeaten at home
- 22pts clear at the top
We look at all others they can still smash:
Record: Least number of defeats by a team in a season – 0 <Arsenal (2003/04)>
The Invincibles achieved an unbeaten season in 2004, winning 26 games and drawing 12. Liverpool remains the only unbeaten team in the current season and have 8 games more to stay unbeaten to match that of that great Arsenal team. Their next 8 games are:
- @NOR | vWHU | @WAT | vBOU | @EVE | vCRY | @MCI | vAVL
Record: Longest unbeaten run – 49 games <Arsenal (2014)>
Arsenal’s eventual unbeaten run stretched three different seasons. Liverpool’s current run is 42 games and need to be stay unbeaten for another 8 to break this record – until GW34 that is.
Record: Most number of PL wins in a season – 32 | Most PL points in a season – 100 <Manchester City (2017/18)>
City’s 32 wins an haul of 100pts two seasons ago was quite amazing – they had only failed to win 6 of their games in the season.
Liverpool will need to win 9 more games to surpass the number of wins. At their current points rate, Liverpool is in line to amass a crazy 111pts come May.
Record: Fewest goals conceded away in a season: 9 <Chelsea (2004/05)>
Under Jose Mourinho, Chelsea conceded 9 goals away from home in 19 games. Liverpool currently have just let in 6 from 13 away games.
Record: Most home wins in a season: 18 <Chelsea (2004/05) | Man Utd (2010/11) | Man City (2011/12) and (2017/18)>
No Premier League side have gone through a season with a 100% win record at home and Liverpool can break that record. To do so, they need to win their 6 remaining home ties. On paper, Chelsea’s visit on GW37 appears to the toughest
Record: Biggest PL title-winning margin – 19 <Manchester City (2017/18)>
Pep’s City steamrolled everyone and won the league title by 19 points in 2017/18. They won it with 5 games to spare, the joint fastest time to seal a title. Currently, Liverpool’s lead is 22 over second-placed City. If they win every game from now onwards, Liverpool would win the time on GW31, regardless of what their opponents do. Liverpool clearly have a good chance to smash this record.
