When will Liverpool win the Premier League title and how many records can they break?

Liverpool are cruising towards the Premier League title

Liverpool are on course to win their first league title for 30 years quicker than any side in history while they also have their eyes on a number of other records.

Liverpool are not only on the brink of ending their 30-year wait for a 19th league title, but they're on course to do it in the most emphatic way possible.

The Reds did equal one record in their 3-2 win over West Ham on Monday as they made it 18 wins in a row to draw level with Man City's previous best from 2017.

The runaway leaders are currently on 79 points after 26 wins and a draw from 27 games, which is seven more than Manchester City's all-conquering 'Centurions' had earned at this stage of the 2017/2018 campaign. If Liverpool win all their remaining games they'll finish on 112!

Liverpool are also a mammoth 22 points clear of the defending champions, who can now reach a maximum of 90 from their 11 remaining games, so the Reds just need another 12 to seal the title.

It's just 11/4 now with Sky Bet that they can go through the entire season unbeaten.

Should the Reds smash - or emulate - a whole host of other records in their sights then it'll be a fascinating debate as to where Jurgen Klopp's men rank among the Premier League's most dominant ever sides, including Manchester United's treble winners, Arsenal's 'Invincibles', the aforementioned 'Centurions' - as well as City's so-called 'Fourmidables' of last season - or even Jose Mourinho's Chelsea sides from 2004-2006.

The fact this is all coinciding with their arch-rivals' worst season for 30 years - when Liverpool last won the league - is just footballing poetry, and if the trends of the two clubs continue in this vein for the forceable future then it may not be too long before Liverpool surpass United's all-time leading haul of 20 titles.

* If Liverpool can add the FA Cup and Champions League to the Premier League title they've all but won and the World Club Cup that's already in the bag then then'll also become the first English side to lift four major trophies in a single season. The most of course is three, jointly held by Man United 1999 (EPL, FA Cup & Champions League), Liverpool 2001 (UEFA Cup, FA Cup & League Cup), Man United 2009 (Premier League, League Cup, World Club Cup and Man City 2019 (Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup).

When and where could Liverpool win the title?

Two seasons ago, Man City's Centurions missed out on eclipsing United's earliest ever Premier League title-winning date of April 14 by just one day - thanks to a derby defeat at the Etihad - but Liverpool are well on course to do it.

As things stand, Klopp's side need just four more wins from their remaining 11 games to reach the 'magic number' of 91 points because the maximum City can now achieve is 90.

If you look at both club's upcoming fixture list below, that could well mean their first Premier League title party begins at the home of the defending champions, who trail by 22 points, on the weekend of April 4.

For that to stand a chance of happening, however, Man City must also win all their games until that point - although if Liverpool fail to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals, the Reds will be able to wrap it up a week earlier against Crystal Palace at Anfield.

It could all end even sooner when you consider City travel to Manchester United and Chelsea as well as hosting Arsenal before they face Liverpool.

Therefore, another potential party date could also be Monday March 16 when they make the short trip to the home of their Merseyside rivals Everton (8pm Sky Sports).

One possible way for that to happen would be Liverpool winning their next two games, taking their tally to 85, with City losing to both Arsenal and Man United. This would reduce their maximum possible points haul to a best of 84.

Whatever date they celebrate glory, it seems almost certain they do it with more than five games remaining, eclipsing a Manchester United record from the 2000/01 season.

To put that into contest, Arsenal's 'Invincibles' of 2003-04 only re-took top spot in the table by winning game 22 of their season and led by five at this stage, though they won the title with four games to spare and by an eventual 11-point margin.

One other record they could equal at the Etihad is Arsenal's all-time unbeaten Premier League run of 49 games.
