Liverpool has enjoyed a stellar campaign so far, with the Merseyside club finally winning their maiden Premier League title, thereby becoming the champions of England for the first time in 30 years.
Jurgen Klopp’s men have demolished every single opposition they have faced in the league this season, and are on the verge of breaking several records.
The Reds have thus far acquired 93 points from 35 Premier League outings. With nine points still up for grabs, Liverpool is well on course to break or equal Manchester City’s record 100–point haul.
Pep Guardiola’s men reached 100 points, courtesy of Gabriel Jesus’ stoppage-time winner against Southampton in the final matchday of the 2017-18 season.
Liverpool have to win all of their three remaining fixtures to create history and record a grand total of 102 points, two more than what Manchester City managed two seasons earlier.
While two wins and a draw from their remaining games would see them equal the Citizens’ 100-point record.
So, without further ado, let us take a close look at Liverpool’s remaining fixtures and analyze their chances of breaking Manchester City’s 100-point record.
Arsenal vs Liverpool (Prediction 1-2)
Liverpool will travel to north London next to play Arsenal at the Emirates on Wednesday night.
The Merseyside club will head into the game on the back of a disappointing 1-1 draw against Burnley on Saturday, and the Reds will be looking to return to winning ways against Mikel Arteta’s side.
Meanwhile, Arsenal’s last Premier League outing ended in a 2-1 defeat at the hands of their fierce local rivals, Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
Despite taking an early lead in the north London derby, courtesy of a magnificent strike from Alexandre Lacazette, the Gunners conceded twice to return empty-handed from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Two goals from Mohamed Salah helped Liverpool register a 3-1 win against Arsenal in the reverse fixture at Anfield back in August last year.
Besides the Egyptian superstar, Joel Matip was also on the scoresheet for Liverpool, while Uruguayan midfielder Lucas Torreira scored the only consolation goal for the Gunners.
So, keeping Arsenal’s defensive issues in mind, Sadio Mane and company would certainly fancy their chances against Mikel Arteta’s men on Wednesday.
Liverpool vs Chelsea (Prediction 1-1)
On July 22nd, Liverpool will host Chelsea at Anfield on the penultimate matchday of the 2019-20 Premier League season.
Although the Reds rarely drop points at home, they can expect a really tough fixture, given Chelsea’s involvement in the top four race.
The Merseyside giants’ intensity on the field has dropped down a bit since they secured the Premier League title, following Manchester’s City’s defeat against Chelsea last month.
The Reds have since dropped five points in four matches, including a 4-0 hammering at the hands of Manchester City at the Etihad in their first game as champions.
In the reverse fixture back in September 2019, Liverpool edged out the Blues 2-1 at Stamford Bridge.
Trent Alexander-Arnold broke the deadlock after rocketing home a close-range free-kick, with Roberto Firmino doubling the visitors’ advantage before N’Golo Kante pulled one back for Chelsea.
Newcastle United vs Liverpool (Prediction 1-4)
Liverpool will travel to St. James’ Park to face Newcastle United in the final matchday of the 2019-20 Premier League campaign.
The Magpies have already secured their safety and are currently occupying the 13th spot on the Premier League table with 43 points from 35 matches.
Meanwhile, Liverpool would surely like to celebrate their much-desired maiden Premier League triumph with a win in the final match of the season.
The Merseysiders have won 13 out of their 17 away league matches this season, scoring a total of 29 goals in the process.
Liverpool would surely like to complete a double against Newcastle, having won the reverse fixture 3-1 back in the month of September last year.
Sadio Mane’s brace helped the Reds to come back from a 1-0 deficit back then, and all eyes will be on the Senegalese international once again when the Premier League champions take on Newcastle United on July 26th.
So, keeping Liverpool’s wobbly recent form and their upcoming opponents in mind, the Reds are likely to drop points in at least one of their remaining three fixtures.
As a result, Jurgen Klopp’s team can at most look to equal Manchester City’s record 100-point tally. It is highly unlikely that they will win their next three games and finish the season with 102 points.
