Liverpool are on the verge of history as they look to shatter a record that has stood at the club for 125 years.
The European champions have already beaten 18 of their 19 Premier League opponents this season to open up a gargantuan 16-point lead at the top of the table. The only team Jurgen Klopp’s champions-elect are yet to beat is West Ham United whom they face on Wednesday night.
Originally they were supposed face off with David Moyes’ side on December 21, however, the match was rescheduled due to Liverpool’s FIFA Club World Cup commitments over the Christmas period.
Liverpool’s 23rd victory of the season would ensure every Premier League opponent has been beaten in a single season which would shatter the record that was in-tact for over a century when the club last achieved the feat during the 1895/96 season in the second-tier.
Klopp’s team would become the first Reds side to achieve the record in the top-flight if they are to win in the capital tonight.
What RTK has to say
Liverpool have enjoyed breaking a record or two following a scintillating 2019/20 campaign.
The level Klopp has got the team operating on is the stuff of nightmares for opponents.
The 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 world champions have registered 94 points from a possible 96. They have won every Anfield match since their 1-1 stalemate with Leicester City 12 months ago – that’s 20 consecutive home wins.
Liverpool are also currently on an unbeaten run of 40 consecutive Premier League matches – they have not lost in the league at Anfield since April 2017.
