Liverpool FC: Record Breakers

The records keep coming for the Reds, but how many are left?

Liverpool’s nervy 3-2 win against West Ham equalled the longest winning run in top-flight history (18 wins). They face a trip to Watford on Saturday, looking to beat Manchester City’s record that was set in their “Centurions” season back in 2017/18.

The Reds have taken 106 points from a possible 108, a truly remarkable achievement that is showing no signs of stopping.

We take a look at the records the Class of 2020 have broken already, and the records they have in their sights.

The records set

The Gap

Jurgen Klopp’s sides’ 25-point lead they have managed at the top this season is the biggest ever in English top-flight history.

Anfield Dominance

The hard-fought win versus West Ham gave Liverpool their 21st consecutive Premier League home win, which beat Manchester City’s record of 20 achieved between 2011 and 2012.

It ties the top-flight record, which is also set by Liverpool’s 1972 side, managed by Bill Shankly.

Europe’s best start ever

Back in January, Liverpool beat Tottenham 1-0, which gave them their 20th win from the first 21 games – making it the best ever start by a side in Europe’s top five leagues.

Roberto Firmino’s goal was hugely significant not only for the record books but for the context of the season.

The win was massive for the Reds, not as big as Man Utd the following week, but in the mix of a tough run of games, Liverpool kept on winning and despite some late scares from Spurs, they held on for a crucial victory.

104 from 114

Liverpool’s 1-0 win at Tottenham Hotspur also set a record of 104 points from 38 Premier League matches, beating the 102 achieved by Man City and Chelsea in their title winning campaigns in 2018 and 2005.

The records to beat

Most consecutive victories

This record can be broken in the Reds’ next match. If Liverpool were to beat Watford on Saturday, the Reds would have won 19 games on the bounce which beats Man City’s record of 18 wins.

The winning margin

Man City currently hold the record for their 19 point winning margin back in 17/18 but the Reds are currently on course to beat it.

Perfect home record

Liverpool have the chance to win all 19 of their home games this season, which would be the top-flight record. Chelsea and the two Manchester clubs have the joint record of 18 wins in a single season.

Most points in a season

Liverpool are on course to smash Manchester City’s 100 points in the 17-18 season, they are currently on course to gain 110 points from a possible 114. 110.

Longest unbeaten streak

Liverpool are five matches away from equalling Arsenal’s record of 49 matches.

Zero losses

The Reds could have the longest unbeaten streak but also could not attain an ‘Invincible’ season unless they do not lose any of their last 11 games

Most days without a loss

The Gunners’ record of going 539 days without losing between May 2003 and October 2004 is the target to beat, and should the Reds finish the season unbeaten, they will beat the record.

Earliest title win

Liverpool have the chance to become the first club to win the title with at least six matches in hand, which would beat both Manchester clubs who share the record of the earliest title win.
