Liverpool set to surpass Man United's 20-year-old record for early EPL title win

Liverpool are unarguably the best side in Europe's top five leagues having gone forty games without suffering any defeat.

And as it looks, the Meyerside side is just some few steps towards breaking another big record in the Premier League.

Liverpool took a step towards history after extending their winning streak to forty following a narrow 2-1 victory over Wolves at Molineux Stadium on Thursday night, January 23.

The victory means Jurgen Klopp's side is 67 points on the log with all coming from 23 Premier League games unbeaten.

Incredibly, the victory levels them with Chelsea's record under Jose Mourinho, and they are a few leaps to replicate the great feat recorded by Arsenal's Invincible team under former manager Arsene Wenger.

Liverpool are also set to win the Premier League at the earliest part of the year, which may see them break Manchester United's record standing since 2001.

Jurgen Klopp's side has played 23 league games and they still have an outstanding match, amassing a total of 67 points, 16 above EPL second-placed Manchester City.

If they could get a couple of wins in the next league encounters, they may win their first title in over 30 years by April.

Manchester United set the record for the fastest league win under legendary Sir Alex Ferguson in 2000/01 season when they win the title in the earlier part of the season.

Should Liverpool continue the winning way, they may win the league at Etihad on April 4.

Similarly, Manchester City's record of 100 points may also be shattered this season with the Anfield dwellers only needing 33 points to achieve that feat.

Liverpool will be hoping to continue their impressive run in their next two games against West Ham and Southampton.
