This Liverpool team have been breaking records left and right this season. They have made the best ever start to a Premier League season, in fact it is the best start any team has ever had in any of Europe’s top five leagues. There’s another piece of history up for grabs with Liverpool on track to this week surpass the consecutive win record set by Manchester City.
The Reds have just won, won and won again this season.
Barring their draw against Manchester United in October, The Reds have won every single game since a goalless draw against Everton last March.
Their run between the Everton draw and the United one saw them fall just short of Manchester City’s record.
However, Liverpool are now just one win away from equalling the consecutive win record of 18 games.
With West Ham United at home tonight, we can expect The Reds to match the record.
This Saturday, Jürgen Klopp’s side travel to relegation threatened Watford, likely ready to set a new consecutive win record of 19 games.
It would be a massive upset should The Reds not surpass the Manchester City set landmark.
When they do move past their rivals in the consecutive win standings, it will be a symbol of just how far Jürgen Klopp’s side have come in the last few years and it will be a win for football.
Man City set their win record after building a near half a billion pound squad. The Reds have built their side with discipline and graft, they haven’t ignored the rules of the game.
They deserve this record and it will be a great day for football to see a side that have done it the right way surpass the billion dollar babies.
