9 unbelievable records runaway Premier League leaders Liverpool could break this season

It goes without saying that the 2019/2020 Premier League title is Liverpool’s to lose at this point.

The season is well over the halfway mark and Jurgen Klopp’s men are yet to find opposition who can provide a genuine threat to their title ambitions.

Reds fans will definitely believe this could be their year after a series of close calls in past seasons which ultimately ended in heartbreak.

While they are en route for their first league title in three decades, Liverpool are also doing so in some style, and if they keep up their form, they are set to break some amazing records.

Here are some of the feats Jurgen Klopp is set to achieve if his side manages to overcome past demons and go all the way this time.

1. Most consecutive home wins

Anfield is currently every opposition team’s worst nightmare and Liverpool just cannot seem to lose at their home stadium.

The record for most home wins is currently held by Manchester City who notched 20 consecutive wins at the Etihad between 2011 and 2012 but Liverpool could break the record with wins against Man United, Southampton and West Ham.

2. Best start to a season in 21 games

Once again, this record is proudly held by Manchester City who garnered an impressive 59 points from 21 games in 2017/2018. Liverpool are currently on 58 points and any positive result against Tottenham on Saturday could match or even break another City record.

3. Most consecutive wins

Man City went on a superb run of 18 wins in a row between August and December of 2017 but Liverpool could overcome this record if they win every game between now and February 29.

4. Longest unbeaten run

Who can forget the mighty Arsenal invincibles? Wenger’s men went 49 games unbeaten back in 2004 and many believed that record could never be matched by anyone.

A resurgent Liverpool are, however, going fairly smoothly this season and are unbeaten in 21 games in the league. They have 29 unbeaten games to go.

5. Longest time unbeaten

Not many people can recall the last time Liverpool tasted defeat.

Because Arsenal’s 2004 invincibles obviously hold the record after going a staggering 537 days unbeaten, if Liverpool somehow manage to remain unbeaten till the end of the season, they will surely overtake the Gunners.

6. Most home wins in a season

This record is held jointly by Chelsea (2005/06), Manchester United (2010/11) and Manchester City (2011/12 and 2018/19) who all recorded 18 wins out of a possible 19.

Liverpool have won all 11 home games this season and if they win their remaining Anfield league games, Klopp will definitely go down in the history books.

7. Most away wins in a season

Going unbeaten obviously means a team is racking some impressive away wins. The record is held by Guardiola’s City, who recorded 16 out of a possible 18 occasions during the 2017/18 campaign.

9. Most wins in a season

The record is held by Man City who won 32 out of their 38 games in their previous two title-winning seasons. If Liverpool win 14 victories in their next 18 league games, this record will be theirs.
