Liverpool set to smash another record at Watford as they chase 13 milestones: All the stats and pictures

Victory at Vicarage Road would beat Manchester City's all-time best

There is no doubt where the Premier League trophy is heading this season, with Liverpool sitting an incredible 22 points clear at the top after their thrilling win against West Ham.

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

Liverpool bagged another three points at Anfield against the Hammers on Monday night, though they had to come from behind to keep their unbeaten record intact.

Their domination has been so complete, the Anfield 'Invincibles' could claim a whole host of records over the remaining 11 games of the Premier League season. After 26 wins and one draw so far, they already have four, and could secure another nine milestones, according to premierleague.com:

What records have they set?

Best start ever

When Liverpool reached 64 points from their opening 21 matches, it was the most a team had ever accumulated at that stage in any of Europe's top five leagues.

They have since extended their record, winning their following six fixtures to rack up 79 points from their first 27 matches.

Most points won over 38 matches

With their 1-0 win at Tottenham January 11, Liverpool set a record of 104 points from 38 Premier League matches, beating the 102 achieved by Manchester City and Chelsea, ending in 2018 and 2005 respectively.

Biggest lead at the top

The Reds' 25-point lead they held at one stage this season is the biggest ever in English top-flight history.

Most home wins in a row

Liverpool's 3-2 victory over West Ham on 24 February 24 was their 21st consecutive Premier League home win, beating Manchester City's record of 20 achieved between 2011 and 2012.

It ties the top-flight record, set by Liverpool's 1972 side managed by Bill Shankly.

What records are they targeting?

Most home wins in a season

Chelsea, Manchester Utd and Manchester City have all managed 18 home wins in a Premier League season. Liverpool have won all 14 so far in 2019/20 and can become the first side to win all 19.

Most consecutive victories

Liverpool's current total of 18 straight victories, which started against Spurs in October, equals Manchester City's 2017 record. The Reds could set a new mark at Watford on February 29.

Most victories in a season

Liverpool are six away from matching the 32 set by Manchester City in 2017/18 and 2018/19.

Most away wins in a season

The Reds have won 12 of their 13 matches on the road and are now four away from matching Manchester City's total of 16 from 2017/18.

Most points in a season

A victory in each of their remaining 11 matches would take Jurgen Klopp's side to a total of 112 points, beating Manchester City's record of 100.

Longest unbeaten streak

Undefeated in their last 44 matches, Liverpool are five away from equalling Arsenal's record of 49 matches, a run that ended in 2004.

'Invincible' season

The Reds can become only the second team to remain unbeaten throughout a Premier League campaign, after Arsenal in 2003/04.

Most days without a loss

Should Liverpool avoid defeat this season, they will surpass the Arsenal's record of going 539 days without losing between May 2003 and October 2004.

Biggest winning margin

Manchester City won the title by 19 points in 2017/18 and Liverpool are on course to beat that figure.
