Liverpool will look to re-write history when they take the field against Wolves on the final matchday of the Premier League.
No team has ever leapfrogged the league-leaders on the final gameweek, but Liverpool are well positioned to do so.
Record-breaking points tally
With 29 wins and 7 draws this campaign, the Reds have notched up an impressive tally of 94 points.
However, they still find themselves one point off top spot. Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City have won a whopping 13 league games in a row. They visit Brighton for their final game which is one they are expected to comfortably win.
Liverpool eye record-breaking win against Wolves; hope for City slip-up
Liverpool, meanwhile, are eying their first-ever Premier League title. They last tasted league glory back in 1990. If they do indeed overhaul City in the final week, they will be the first team to overtake the league-leaders in the last match day.
This year’s title race has been arguably one of the best in Premier League history. While most of the teams have been left by the wayside, Jurgen Klopp’s men have hung on gamely.
However, considering the fact that they had a 7-point lead heading into the New Year, they might feel a tinge of regret at not closing things out.
If they fail to beat City to top spot, they will still have set a record in what’s been an unbelievable campaign.
The Reds currently have 94 points. Even if they fail to add to that tally, they will set a record for the most points won by a second-place team.
That will, however, be the least of their concerns, with their eyes firmly on the prize. The last time City were involved in such a title race, they needed a Sergio Aguero 93rd minute goal to seal the title against QPR.
They will be eager not to leave things that late this time around.
