Liverpool Football Club is a professional football club headquartered in Liverpool, England, that competes in the Premier League, English football’s highest division.
Nineteen League titles, seven FA Cups, a record nine League Cups, and fifteen FA Community Shields have been won by the club domestically.
Following a conflict between the Everton committee and John Houlding, the club president and landowner at Anfield, Liverpool F.C. was formed. Everton moved to Goodison Park in 1892 after eight years in the stadium, and Houlding created Liverpool F.C. to play at Anfield.
The club was originally known as “Everton F.C. and Athletic Grounds Ltd” (Everton Athletic for short), but in March 1892, it changed its name to Liverpool F.C. and received official registration three months later, when The Football Association refused to recognize the team as Everton.
Find out the marks Jurgen Klopp’s team has beaten or equaled in 2019/20, in addition to claiming the Trophy for the first time.
This season, Liverpool not only won the Premier League for the first time, but they also made history.
Here, I will examine the Premier League records they have established or equaled in 2019/20.
The most significant lead at the top
This season, Liverpool has held a 25-point advantage, the largest in English Premier League history.
The most consecutive home victories
Liverpool’s 3-2 victory over West Ham United on February 24 broke Man City’s record of 20 straight Premier League home wins set between 2011 and 2012.
With wins over AFC Bournemouth, Crystal Palace, and Aston Villa at Anfield, they improved their record to 24.
The earliest title victory
By winning the title with seven games to spare, Liverpool broke the record set by Manchester United in 2000-01 and Manchester City in 2017/18 of being champions with five games to spare.
Most points won over 38 matches
Liverpool set a Premier League record of 104 points from 38 games with their 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur on 11 January, surpassing Manchester City’s 102 points from 38 games in 2018 and Chelsea’s 102 points from 38 games in 2005.
After defeating West Ham United 3-2 in February, Liverpool improved their record to 110 points from 38 games (W36 D2 L0).
Fastest to 30 wins
The Reds’ 30th victory of the season came against Brighton & Hove Albion on July 8, and they did so in just 34 Premier League games.
The best start of all time
Liverpool’s 61 points from their first 21 games were the most ever amassed by a team in any of Europe’s top five divisions at that point.
They went on to win their next six games, giving them a total of 79 points from their first 27 games before losing against Watford.
The most home victories in a season
Liverpool joined Chelsea, Manchester United, and Manchester City in winning 18 home matches in a Premier League season with their 5-3 victory over Chelsea.
The most wins in a season
Liverpool equaled Man City’s 32 victories in 2017/18 and 2018/19 with a 3-1 victory over Newcastle United in their final encounter.
What will Liverpool be able to do this season?
Liverpool has had a tough season as they pursue a potential quadruple, but no matter what they accomplish, they won’t be able to break one record.
The Reds will play every potential game if they advance past Villarreal in the Champions League, as they have already reached the FA Cup and Carabao Cup finals, in addition to the regular 38 Premier League fixtures. By the end of the season, Jurgen Klopp’s side will have played a total of 63 games.
Liverpool are still in contention for a trophy quadruple moving into the final week of April and are certain to go longer than any other team in English history.
The Reds have already won the League Cup and are in the FA Cup final, the Champions League semi-finals, and are battling it out with Man City for the Premier League crown.
City regained their one-point lead over Brighton with a 3-0 win on Wednesday night, and both championship rivals now have six games remaining.
Between now and until the conclusion of the season, Liverpool might play another ten times, echoing Gerard Houllier’s 2002 remark “10 games from greatness.”
Twenty years later, the Reds are in a stronger position than the team that won the treble in 2001/02 under Houllier, with their quest for a league, European Cup, FA Cup, and League Cup quadruple set to last longer than any other in English history.
As things stand, Liverpool will not have a chance to win four trophies until at least May 3.
No team has ever won the quadruple in English history, and the same can be said for the rest of Europe’s top five leagues: La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A, and Ligue 1.
Is Liverpool Better than Manchester City?
Although Liverpool has more European titles, Manchester City has had more domestic success in the current era, winning five league titles since 2011, while Liverpool overcame a 30-year title drought by winning the Premier League in 2019-20.
Right now, I’m sure he’s savoring the performers, the side that the Premier League has been gifted with, just like the rest of us. While it lasts, we should all take advantage of it.
