25 points clear and six more records: How Liverpool's season is becoming the greatest of all time – in pictures

Liverpool's incredible run has blown the opposition away and there are still 12 games to go

There seems little doubt where the Premier League trophy is heading this season, with Liverpool sitting an incredible 25 points clear at the top.

Barring an absolute catastrophe, Jurgen Klopp's side will claim their first top flight triumph since 1990, and their 19th in total.

Liverpool enjoyed the midwinter, and returned to action against Norwich City on Saturday, claiming another three points.

Their domination has been so complete, the Anfield 'Invincibles' could claim a whole host of records over the remaining 12 games of the Premier League season. After 25 wins and one draw so far, these include, according to premierleague.com:

Best start ever

Liverpool's 76 points from their first 2 matches is a Premier League record.

It was previously held by Manchester City, who reached 59 points after 21 matches of 2017/18. That was the most points a team had ever accumulated after 21 matches in any of Europe's top five leagues, a record that Liverpool have since extended.

The 1-0 win at Tottenham on January 11 meant Liverpool set a record for the most points won over the previous 38 Premier League matches.

Their 104 points beat the 102 achieved by Manchester City and Chelsea, ending in 2018 and 2005.

Most home wins in a season

Liverpool's 4-0 victory over Southampton on February 1 was their 20th consecutive home win in the Premier League.

They last dropped points at home in a 1-1 draw with Leicester City in January 2019. They have now matched Manchester City's record of 20 in a row between 2011 and 2012.

Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City have all managed 18 home wins in a single Premier League season.

Liverpool have won all 13 at Anfield in 2019/20 and are on course to become the first side to reach that magic total of 19.

Most consecutive victories

Liverpool's current total of 17 straight victories, which started against Spurs in October, is one short of Manchester City's 2017 record.

They could set a new mark at Watford on February 29.

As for most victories over the course of a season, Liverpool are seven away from matching the 32 set by City in 2017/18 and 2018/19.

Most away wins

The only fixture in which Liverpool have failed to win all three points this season was the 1-1 draw at Manchester United in October, leaving them with 12 away victories. They are four away from matching Manchester City's 16 from 2017/18.

Most points in a season

Another Premier League record that Manchester City achieved that season was their total of 100 points. A win in each of their remaining 12 matches would take the Reds past that number by 12.

Longest unbeaten streak

Klopp's men are also on a remarkable unbeaten streak.

Liverpool's current run of 43 matches without defeat started against Brighton in January 2019 and would hit 49 against Manchester City on April 4. Arsenal managed 49, ending in 2004.

If they can remain unbeaten in 2019/20, Liverpool will also match Arsenal's 'Invincible' season of 2003/04.

Furthermore, should Liverpool avoid defeat this season, they will surpass the Gunners' record of going 539 days without losing between May 2003 and Oct 2004.

Biggest winning margin

Liverpool are 25 points clear at the top of the table, ahead of Manchester City.

It is the biggest lead any league leader has ever had in English top-flight history.

They are also on course to match the Premier League record for the biggest lead over the second-placed team at the end of the season.

Manchester City won the title by 19 points in 2017/18.
