Liverpool have chance to break long-standing Premier League record

Liverpool’s sensational form since Christmas means they have a shot at breaking a long-standing Premier League record.

Liverpool have only failed to win twice since the turn of the year, meaning if they win their final 10 matches, they will officially have had the best second half to a Premier League season ever.

The Reds have been in amazing form in 2015, having won seven of their nine matches in the league. They have only failed to beat Leicester City and Everton during that period.

It means that despite still sitting outside of the Champions League places, Liverpool are favourites with many to overtake Manchester United and finish in the top four for the second season running.

They are just two points behind their rivals, having been a mighty 10 points back when United beat them at Old Trafford in mid-December.

Arsenal hold the record for the best second half to a season, having collected 51 out of a possible 57 points in 2001-02.

Chelsea (2004-05) and Manchester United (2008-09) are joint-second on the list, having picked up 49 points from their final 19 fixtures.

If Liverpool were to win all of their remaining 10 games, they would have attained 53 points from 57 available, meaning they would break this record.
