Can Leaders Liverpool Go The Entire Premier League Season Unbeaten?

Jurgen Klopp's men are the only team yet to lose in the league this season
Jurgen Klopp's men are the only team yet to lose in the league this season

We’ve nearly reached the half-way point of the 2018/19 Premier League season, and it’s so far proving to be an enthralling one in terms of the race for the coveted title, currently led by Liverpool, a point ahead of Man City, while Chelsea, Arsenal, and Tottenham certainly won’t have ruled themselves out of contention, although 750/1 shots Man Utd will probably have to wait for another year.

Chelsea’s surprise 2-0 defeat of Man City means that Liverpool remain the only top-flight team unbeaten. Jurgen Klopp’s men have amassed an impressive club record 42 points from their opening 16 matches, equating to 13 wins, three draws, and zero defeats.

It was previously suggested that City could be the side to go the whole season unbeaten in the league, as Arsenal’s Invincibles famously did back in 2003/04, a remarkable feat that no club has achieved before or since.

However, City’s unbeaten dreams have been now been extinguished, although Pep Guardiola’s defending champions do remain the odds-on favourites to lift the title for the second successive season.

Liverpool, cut from 5/2 to 4/1 to win their first Premier League gong, are now priced at 10/1 to go undefeated for the entirety of the 2018/19 campaign. That’s 22 more matches without losing once.

A rejuvenated Man Utd at Anfield. Tasty, very tasty.

The Reds still have to travel to the Etihad and Old Trafford, but these are the only current top-six venues left to visit.

Meanwhile, they welcome to Anfield the aforementioned United, along with Arsenal, Spurs, and Chelsea.

If the club can get to mid-April with their unbeaten streak intact, their final four games are all pretty winnable: Cardiff, Huddersfield, Newcastle, and Wolves.

However, there’s still a multitude of matches to be played, and history tells us that it’s extremely difficult to go the entire Premier League season unbeaten, although not impossible...
