Jurgen Klopp has equalled Jose Mourinho’s unbeaten Premier League record of 40 matches following Liverpool’s 2-1 victory at Wolves on Thursday evening.
The history-making Reds have recorded 67 points out of a possible 69 so far this season – five more than any other top-flight side in history after 23 games.
Since March 10, the Reds have registered 94 points from a possible 96. Also, following their previous stalemate with Leicester City 12 months ago, they have won 20 consecutive home games in the Premier League. They have not lost in the league at Anfield since April 2017 – that’s 1006 days ago!
The Red’s 40-match unbeaten status is the longest unbeaten Premier League run since former Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho achieved the same record 15 years ago. Liverpool are unbeaten for 386 days since their 2-1 loss at the Etihad Stadium on January 3, 2019.
Mourinho, currently manager of Tottenham Hotspur, inspired Chelsea to the second-best points tally in Premier League history. The Blues points haul of 95 has only been bettered by two teams (Manchester City 2018/2019 and Liverpool 2019) since the league’s origin in 1992.
With 15 matches remaining for this season’s champions-elect, if Liverpool are to win every match from now until May they could register a staggering 112 points. Klopp’s team have just dropped two points all season following a 1-1 stalemate at Old Trafford in October.
Liverpool are also hoping to become only the second Premier League team to go a full season unbeaten. Arsene Wenger’s ‘invincibles’ of 2004 are the only team to achieve the feat – they also hold the longest ever unbeaten run (49) in English top-flight history.
The Reds are also just 4 victories short of equalling City’s all-time consecutive winning league run of 18 back in 2018. They are also just 10 wins short of levelling Pep Guardiola’s record of most wins in a single league campaign (32).
Considering Liverpool’s imminent title party will end a 30-year wait for a league trophy its quite remarkable to see how many records Klopp’s ‘mentality monsters’ are shattering on their way to domestic glory.
