Norwich vs Liverpool: The 35 records Jurgen Klopp’s men could still break in stunning Premier League campaign

Old-eagle

Feb. 14, 2020

It’s a matter of when, not if, Liverpool will be crowned the 2019/20 Premier League winners.
Jurgen Klopp’s men have an unassailable 22-point lead at the top, with their 30-year wait for a title soon to come to an end.
The Reds are already enjoying the best season in history of any club from Europe’s top-five league in terms of points won – taking 73 from a possible 75 – while they are still involved in both the FA Cup and Champions League.
The only points the Reds have dropped all season was in a 1-1 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford in October 2019.
The Merseysiders look set to break the record for the largest title-winning margin of 19 points set by Manchester City in 2017/18.
Klopp’s men are already 22 points ahead of City with 13 games to go.
Guardiola’s team were famously dubbed the ‘Centurions’ for their 100-point haul in the 2017/18 season – setting the record for the most points won.
But if Liverpool win nine of their remaining 13 games this season, they will equal City’s record.
With only two of the current top six teams left to face, Chelsea and Manchester City, the Reds could go on to blow Guardiola’s absurdly brilliant record out of the water.
Below, are the rest of the records the Reds have already reached, as well as the 35 – yes, you heard it right, they could break by the end of the 2019/20 campaign.
Records already reached Best start to a league season in Europe – 73/75 points Most consecutive home wins – 20 Most points across 38 Premier League games – 108/114 Club record for most consecutive league wins – 17 First English team to win international treble (European Cup, Super Cup, World Club Cup) Most Premier League opponents beaten – 19 (joint with Man City)
