We already know that the EPL title has essentially been run and won. We already know that Liverpool will hoist the trophy aloft, for the first time in 30 years, at St James Park on May 18. And we also know that, quite incredibly, some bookies started paying out of them in November. But one thing we don’t know is whether they can remain unbeaten this entire season. Arsenal’s ‘Invincbles’ of 2003/04 were the first EPL side to do so, but Liverpool are a big chance to be the second. With 13 games to go, can they do it?

Points record in danger?
While the Gunners made history 16 years ago, they acquired *just* 90 points in doing so. In their 38 games, they won 26 and drew 12. Liverpool, however, with 13 games to go are already on 24 wins and are set to smash the tally set by Arsene Wenger’s heralded side. In fact, the EPL record for most points in a season was set just two years ago when Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side finished on 100 points. And punters would likely back Liverpool to not just raise the bat, but surpass City’s record. With 39 points on offer for the rest of the year, the Reds need 28 more to get to 101. And given they’ve dropped just two points thus far this EPL season, they’re a huge chance to do so.

In City’s aforementioned record-breaking season in 2017/18 their nearest rival, cross-town sparring partners Manchester United, were a whopping 19 points adrift on 81 points. This is now the record in the EPL era. But the gap this season is *already* 22 points. Is this yet another record Klopp’s troops look set to smash this season? If you fancy the Reds to add the Champions League and FA Cup to their EPL trophy this season, you can currently get $15 with Palmerbet.
Mo Salah has, by his lofty standards, somewhat gone under the radar this season. But after he set a pace in his first season at Liverpool that he’d almost never repeat (44 goals in 52 games), he has still maintained a brilliant scoring record for the Reds. And with three goals in his last two EPL appearances, he’s shortened in Palmerbet’s top scorer market. His recent double against Southampton took his season tally to 14, now just three behind leader Jamie Vardy on 17. Salah has shifted into $5, behind favourite Sergio Aguero (16 goals) at $2.50. Vardy is currently at $3.75.

While the Reds won’t be in front of the Anfield faithful this weekend, they’re still huge favourites to account for Norwich on the road. The bottom-placed Canaries are $10 outsiders at home to hand out Klopp’s first loss for the EPL season. Liverpool, by contrast, are $1.29 to pick up their 25th win of the campaign. Beyond that, the usually tough fixtures below don’t look so dangerous given Liverpool’s current form. Even against City away they might start as marginal favourites, something that would have appeared impossible at the start of this EPL season.
