Jan. 23, 2020
Played 22 – Won 21, drawn one, lost zero.
Liverpool have been nothing short of staggering in the Premier League this season and look well on their way to a first league title in 30 years.
The fans clearly believe with chants of ‘ We’re going to win the league ‘ reverberating around Anfield as Liverpool sealed a win over Manchester United on Sunday.
They could even break the record for an earliest Premier League title win such has been their brilliance.
One record they’ll have their eye on is of staying unbeaten for the entirety of the 2019/20 league season and emulate Arsenal in 2003/04.
The Reds are actually unbeaten in their last 39 Premier League matches dating back from last season so are ten off the ‘Invincibles’ record of 49.

Going an entire season without defeat is what would only really give the stat that gloss so Jurgen Klopp’s men will want to keep the intensity up.
However, there are still 16 more Premier League matches for Liverpool this term, starting with a trip to Wolves on Thursday night.
Wolves are 11/2 to inflict a first Premier League defeat of the season on them according to Paddy Power .
And the bookmaker has taken a look at the odds on every other team Liverpool has to face to claim that scalp.

Who will be the first team to beat Liverpool in the PL this season? *Odds by Paddy Power Wolves away (January 24) – 11/2 West Ham (January 29 and February 24) – 17/2 Southampton (February 5) – 14/1 Norwich (February 15) – 13/1 Watford (February 29) – 11/1 Bournemouth (March 7) – 22/1 Everton (March 14) – 9/1 Crystal Palace (March 21) – 25/1 Manchester City (April 4) – 2/1 Aston Villa (April 11) – 66/1 Brighton (April 18) – 25/1 Burnley (April 25) – 66/1 Arsenal (May 2) – 18/1 Chelsea (May 9) – 33/1 Newcastle (May 17) – 66/1
So Paddy Power have unsurprisingly gone with Manchester City as the most likely to first conquer Liverpool in the Premier League in 2019/20.
Interestingly, that game will be Liverpool’s opportunity to equal the Invincibles record of 49 so plenty of Arsenal fans will be hoping for Pep Guardiola’s side to get the job done too.
Wolves are ones to watch out for too, while West Ham have the best chance in a mathematical sense as they’ve still got to face Liverpool twice this season.
The bookmaker is also offering odds of 9/2 for Liverpool to remain unbeaten for this season which is certainly not out of the question.
