Liverpool Are Only One Game Away From Historic Premier League Record

Liverpool on the cusp of setting a new club record
Liverpool on the cusp of setting a new club record

Liverpool have the chance to create history this weekend when Jurgen Klopp's men bid to do something no other Liverpool side has ever achieved before in the Premier League.

Not under Rafa Benitez, nor Brendan Rodgers, or even...Roy Hodgson.

Liverpool make the trip down to Watford on Saturday unbeaten in their opening 12 top-flight matches (W9 D3), a superb streak that puts the Reds 2nd in the table behind defending champions Man City.

Should Klopp lead his troops to victory over the Hornets then Liverpool will have accumulated a whopping 33 points from their opening 13 matches, a points tally the club has never reached at this stage of the season, in the whole of the Premier League era.

Only a win will see Liverpool reach this club-record tally.

The Liverpool side from 2008/09, under former boss Benitez, previously recorded 32 points from their first 13 top-flight games, while Klopp's 2016/17 side hit the 30 point mark after the same amount of matches.

Liverpool's best ever unbeaten Premier League start came back in 2007/08 when they went 15 games from the off without a single loss, while back before the Premier League came into existence the 1990/91 outfit won 12 and drew one of their opening 13 clashes.

The longest unbeaten start to a Premier League season is of course held by Arsenal whose 2003/04 'Invincibles' side remarkably went through the whole 38-game campaign without suffering a single defeat, something that is unlikely to ever occur again - although the unbeaten trio of Liverpool, Man City, and Chelsea will certainly have something to say about that.

If one of those three clubs achieve the unbeaten feat then it will be they who are surely crowned winner come May.
