Jurgen Klopp and his Liverpool side continue to break records and defy the odds as they storm their way to the Premier League title.
That’s right after a three month absence the PL x series has returned to Dawson Football and we can only begin the year by talking about the incredible and unbeatable Merseyside force that is Liverpool.
First, let’s talk some simple statistics. Klopp’s side have notched an impressive 61 points from their first 21 games this season, surpassing the record set by Manchester City in their 2017/18 title winning season. A season that saw them finish up with 100 points, 25 ahead of Liverpool.
A staggering 44 games were won by the Reds in 2019 (Spurs and United won 51 between them…). On that incredible run Liverpool scored what can only be described as a staggering 129 goals. Incredible.
But what this isn’t is a surprise to anyone, following the 17/18 season where they finished fourth, they went on to finish runners up to City in the league last season but sealed their title as European Champions and then went on to win the UEFA Super Cup for the first time in their history at the end of 2019.
The front three of Mane, Salah and Firmino is arguably one of the best in the world, scoring 69 goals between them in the 2018/19 season in all competitions. That is more than 17 of the 20 teams in the Premier League managed, including Chelsea and Spurs who finished third and fourth respectively.
The end of the season will no doubt bring Liverpools first Premier League title, their first top division championship since the 1989/90 season, but that will only be a catalyst for mass improvement from the top sides in the league to try and topple the Reds.
