Liverpool one game away from being most dominant team ever – and could smash record with 19-point New Year lead – The Sun
LIVERPOOL are one game away from becoming the most dominant team in English football history at the turn of the year.
Jurgen Klopp's side look almost unbeatable as they chase their first ever Premier League title after leaving their rivals in their wake.
The Reds currently hold a 13 point lead over nearest challengers Leicester and still have a game in hand on all their closest chasers.
As it stands a victory over Wolves tomorrow will be enough to guarantee they go into 2020 with that margin still intact, irrespective of what second place Leicester do against West Ham.
That would see them equal the current biggest advantage held by a side going into a new calendar lead in the top flight – which Liverpool actually hold themselves.
The Reds managed by Kenny Dalglish in 1988, widely regarded as the best side in the club's illustrious history, went into January with a 13 point advantage.
But should the Foxes fail to beat West Ham, then the chance is there for Klopp's all-conquering side to smash the record themselves.
There is the potential for Liverpool to go into the new year with a 16-point gap on their nearest rivals.
And should they also take maximum points from their January 2 clash with Sheffield United, it could be that Liverpool hold a 19 point lead over rest as they cruise to what looks a certain title win.
