Liverpool’s performance has been dreamy since last season. Winning the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and being the finalists of Premier League last year, the Reds have been maintaining the same high walking into the 2019-20 season. With 5 out of 5 wins since the beginning of this year’s Premier League, Liverpool is on the verge of creating the history.
With the 100% record in the Premier League, Liverpool tops the points table and if they happen to win four more matches, they will break Manchester City’s record of longest league match winning streak in the history.
Liverpool has become only 4th team ever to achieve 14 top-flight match wins in a row, after their 3-1 win against Newcastle. Right now, Manchester City holds the record for winning 18 matches on a run through the 2017 season.
So, how strong are the chances for Liverpool to become the first team to win 19 Premier League matches in a row? Let’s look at their next 5 fixtures.
|22nd September||Chelsea (away)|
|28th September||Sheff United (away)|
|5th October||Leicester (home)|
|20th October||Manchester United (away)|
|27th October||Tottenham Hotspur (home)|
Given that four of their next 5 matches are with biggies and three of them are away matches, it is highly unlikely that Liverpool will smash a record. However, the Klopp-led Reds and especially Salah and Sadio Mane would like to prove otherwise.
Liverpool is followed by defending champions Manchester City, Tottenham, Man U, Leicester, and Chelsea for the next 5 positions in the table.
