The English Premier League is well past the halfway mark, with Liverpool firmly placed in the pole position and all set to end their 30-year long wait to win the Premier League championship. Going by all the reputed off-line and online sports betting portals, including some of the top-rated Vegas online betting sites, the Reds are a strong favourite to not just win the Premier League championship this time, but much more.
The team hasn’t lost a game in the league for over a year now, and have dropped points only against Manchester United this season. Having scored 20 wins from 21 games, a 14 point lead over the second-placed Manchester City and one game to spare, proves the dominant form Liverpool has been in this football season. In fact, their drawn game against Manchester United prevented them from scoring the maximum number of consecutive wins in the history of the league, a record that is presently held by Man City.
Nevertheless, their recent 1-0 win over Tottenham has put them into the record books with the best start-ever in a football league across the top five leagues of Europe. Other than that, they have matched some amazing numbers along the way. With the remaining half of the season still to be played out, one can expect Liverpool to break many more records. Let’s look at some of them below:
Maximum consecutive wins
This record was created by Guardiola’s Manchester City in 2017, having scored 18 wins back-to-back. Liverpool came very close to that record this season, but the drawn game against Manchester United prevented them from breaking it. At present, they must win 7 more games straight, till February 29, 2020, to break Guardiola’s record.
Maximum consecutive wins at home
While Liverpool have won 18 games straight at home, Manchester City holds this record once again, with 20 games in the 2011-12 season. The Reds must win their home games against West Ham, Southampton and Manchester United to break this record.
Maximum home wins in a single football season
Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea jointly hold this record, having won 18/19 home games during their title-winning seasons of 2018-19, 2010-11 and 2005-06 respectively. Although Liverpool have won all their home games this season so far, they will need to maintain a clean sheet to break this one.
Maximum away wins in a single football season
Another record held by Manchester City, they created it during their 2017-18 campaign, winning 16/19 away games. Liverpool have won 8 away games so far this season and will get past it if they succeed in winning 9 out of their remaining 10 away matches.
Maximum points scored in a single football season
A record that rests with Man City yet again, they created it with 100 points in 2017. Liverpool are currently at 61 points and require 14 more wins to break this one. Not an impossible task considering the form they’re in.
