Winning and setting new records already an hobby for unbeatable Liverpool

Liverpool came back from 2-goals down to beat West Ham 3-2 at Anfield, matching Manchester City’s 2017 English Premier League record of 18 consecutive victories, without a loss.

They are currently on their best form, as they are yet to drop a point since the 2019/2020 campaign began.

The last time they dropped a point was against Manchester United in the EPL after pulling a 1-1 draw in October, 2019.
Nonetheless, the weekend could see them extend their winning streak to a record 19 as they take on Watford on Saturday.

Despite the unbeaten run, Liverpool Manager Jürgen Klopp had said after their win against Southampton that his team is ‘not close to being perfect’.

With this feat against West Ham, which puts them very close to the title, with just FOUR more wins required, Klopp is now beginning to agree, that his team is indeed phenomenal and one of the best the EPL has ever seen.

“It’s so special, the numbers are incredible, so difficult. We said it a couple of times, we spoke about wonderful games, brilliant games, we spoke about hard games, difficult games,” Klopp said after the West Ham win.

“You can only have the number of wins you have if you win all of these games: the difficult ones, the easy ones – if there ever was one – the brilliant ones and the rougher, more grumpy ones.

“In the end, that’s what counts. We all know it’s very special, but in the moment we are really just in the situation and want to recover and prepare for the next one.”

Liverpool needs 12 more points to be confirmed champions of England and they would be looking to seal this when they take on Crystal Palace in Anfield on March 21.

The Reds still have an away match with Watford on March 7, home game against Bournemouth on March 16, an away game against Everton on March 21, another home game against Crystal Palace on April 5 and an away game against Manchester City.

These dates are subject to change however, should they beat Chelsea on February 29.

Meanwhile, Liverpool would be looking to break many other records this term, including most wins in a single season (32), most home wins (18), most away wins (16) and most points (100).

With their eyes set on the 18 consecutive wins records held by Manchester City, if they beat Watford.

Should they lift the EPL within the earliest possible time when they meet Crystal Palace, then they would beat the earliest title win record currently held by Man United, who did set thr record during their 2000/2001 campaign with five games to spare.

Liverpool currently stand on top of the EPL table with 79 points. That is 22 points ahead of Man City who occupy the second position with a 57 points, 29 points ahead of Leicester City who stand thirds and 35 points over Chelsea who have just 44 points.
