- Liverpool have won the Premier League for the first time in 30 years
- The Reds already have 92 points with 4 matches to play before the season ends
- Jurgen Klopp’s men have now surpassed the number of points Manchester United ever had in a season
With their 3-1 win at Brighton on Wednesday night, Liverpool are now on course to beating Manchester City’s record of most points in a Premier League season.
The Reds who already have 92 points with four games left to spare have already surpassed the number of points recorded by Arsenal’s Invicibles during the 2003/2004 season.
Liverpool had, back in January, surpassed Manchester United’s total points for the entire 2018/2019 season despite playing just 23 matches.
And by February, the Reds had one point more than what the Red Devils recorded in the whole of 1996/1997 when they won the league.
By March, Jurgen Klopp’s men already had more than the 79 league points United scooped when they won the treble in 1999.
Now we’re in July and Liverpool continue to leave United in their wake by reaching more points than the Red Devils have ever recorded in a 20-game Premier League season.
Their 3-1 win against Brighton pushed them to 92 points. The Red Devils have never reached that tally since Premier League sides started to play 38-game seasons in 1995-96.
In 1993-94, a United side managed by Sir Alex Ferguson managed 92 points, but teams played 42 games back then.
The biggest points tally the Old Trafford outfit have recorded across a 38-game campaign is 91 points, set in 1999/2000.
Liverpool have cemented their status as the greatest Premier League team ever after winning the title with four games left to play.
It was the Reds' first trophy in 30 years and it came at a point where they are still in line to break more records before the 2019-20 campaign ends.
Nine points are needed from the remaining four clashes against Burnley, Arsenal, Chelsea and Newcastle to ensure the Reds surpass City’s 100-point total from 2017/18 to record the highest tally of any top-flight side in English football history.
However, Legit.ng earlier reported that Virgil Van Dijk is not taking it easy with his team-mates despite the fact that they have already won the Premier League as he urged them to ‘wake up’ during win at Brighton.
Liverpool were two goals up as early as the 8th minute but the hosts pulled one back on the stroke of half-time.
As Liverpool players started to give the opposition time and space on the ball as they awaited the final whistle, the central-defender was heard saying: "C'mon boys you're getting f***ing lazy!"
