Liverpool win Premier League: Five records Reds could still break this season


After three decades of agonizing wait and several near misses, Jurgen Klopp’s reds clinched the title without kicking a ball on Thursday night.

Liverpool are Premier League 2019/20 champions after Chelsea handed Manchester City a shock defeat in the two sides’ clash at Stamford Bridge on Thursday night.

Jurgen Klopp’s men needed only a single victory after their 4-0 demolition of Crystal Palace to seal the title but City’s defeat means they cannot be caught.

The final whistle at Stamford Bridge was followed by scenes of jubilation in the Red half of Merseyside as thousands of Liverpool supporters congregated at Anfield to celebrate.

Most of them won’t care less if their team doesn’t win another game this season now that the crown of English football is back at Anfield, but Jurgen Klopp will be telling his boys to keep going as the Reds could be able to make their title win sweeter by clinching these records.

Following the clinching of title on Thursday night, here are the records Jurgen Klopp’s men could still break between now and the end of the season:

#1: Most points in the English top-division

This record is currently held by Manchester City who recorded their dominance over English football by amassing a massive 100 points in their record breaking 2017/18 campaign.

However, as huge as that number might look, Jurgen Klopp’s men who are currently standing on 86 points after 31 games on the board need only 5 victories from their remaining 7 Premier League games to deprive Pep Guardiola of yet another accolade.

 

 #2: Most points in Europe’s top five leagues

Given how they have dominated the Italian football over the last decade, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the record for most points in Europe’s top five leagues is currently held by Juventus who collected an eye-watering 102 points in their 2013/14 title winning campaign.

The record won’t stand though if Jurgen Klopp’s men win at least 6 of their remaining 7 games in the 19/20 campaign. But with them still to face Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea, Jurgen Klopp’s men will have to be at their very best to take this record home.

Jurgen Klopp will be telling his boys to keep going as the Reds could be able to make their title win sweeter by clinching these records.

#3: Most wins in England’s top flight

Given the fact that they went on to be centurions that season, it is of little surprise that the record of most wins in England’s top flight is held by the Man City side of the 2017/18 season who notched 32 victories on their way to glory during that campaign.

The Reds need only five victories from their remaining seven games to break that record, meaning they could afford to slip in two of their three games against Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea and still break this record.

# 4: Biggest winning margin for English champions

When the Etihad residents took the Premier League title home at the end of May in the 2017/18 campaign, 19 points separated them from 2 nd placed Manchester United.

That might be the easiest of records that Liverpool could still break as they are already 23 points ahead of 2 nd placed City. A victory over Pep Guardiola’s men next Thursday would further burnish their chances of clinching this record come end of July.

 

# 5: Most away victories in English top-flight season

The Reds already leveled this record in February when they defeated Norwich City to claim their 16 th away win of the season, a record that was set by Man City during the 17/18 ‘campaign, which means that they need to win only one of their remaining three games on the road to set the record for most away victories in a single English top-flight season.
