Premier League: when can Liverpool become champions?

If you take a look at the current table situation in the Premier League, the question no longer arises,if Liverpool FC can become champions, but onlywhen. In this section you get various scenarios for winning the Reds title.

Scenario 1, how Liverpool can become champions - Manchester City lose the next two games:

  • The earliest possible time that Liverpool FC can become champions is March 14th. Then the team around captain Jordan Henderson would have the title before their own game on matchday 30 in the Premier League. However, that is not particularly likely - and it would certainly not be so nice for the Reds, as they would celebrate the long-awaited championship title "on the coach". Because for Liverpool to be champions on March 14th, Manchester City would have to lose both the catch-up game against Arsenal on Wednesday (March 11th) and the game next Saturday (March 14th) at home against Burnley. Liverpool's lead would then still be 25 points and City could only collect a maximum of 24 points in eight remaining matches.

Scenario 2, how Liverpool can become champions - on their own and after a derby against Everton:

  • That would definitely have something! Should Manchester City fail to win either against Arsenal (March 11th) or against Burnley (March 14th) next weekend or at least lose one of the two games, Liverpool would have the chance on March 16th to bag the championship on their own - and that also with a victory at city rivals Everton FC. If one of the above two scenarios occurs, City has a maximum of 60 points in its account after the 30th matchday. Liverpool would be 85 points in a three-point against Everton - and City could not make up the resulting 25-point deficit in eight remaining games.

Scenario 3, how Liverpool can become champions - Pool and Manchester City win everything from now on:

  • If ManCity wins against Arsenal (March 11th) and Burnley (March 14th) and Liverpool in turn against Everton, everything would be ready for a "home championship celebration" for the Reds in Anfield. Because then the Klopp-Elf would become English champions on March 21st. After that - let's assume our scenario - Liverpool would have 88 points after 31 games. City, whose league game against Chelsea is canceled on this match day because they are challenged in the FA Cup quarter-finals at the same time, would be at 63 points from 30 games at the same time. Only 24 points would be possible for the Skyblues, so a total of 87.

Either way: It all boils down to Klopp and Co. breaking the record for the earliest championship (April 14: United in the 2000/01 season). Back then it was five game days before the end of the season. Liverpool can do it earlier and make history.

Premier League: Which team has won the title the fastest so far?

The current record for the fastest championship won is currently held by Manchester United. The English record champions secured the title five game days before the end of the 2000/01 season, on April 14, 2001. No team has ever been English champions before.

2000/01Manchester UnitedApril 14, 20015

2003/04arsenalApril 25, 20044
2012/13Manchester UnitedApril 22, 20134

Also with five game days to go, United's city rivals Manchester City have already crowned themselves champions. In the 2017/18 season, the Citizens made the title clear on April 15. Coach Pep Guardiola's team could almost have broken United's record, but then lost 3-2 to the Red Devils in the Manchester derby in April.

In 2000, Manchester United was able to celebrate a "Blitz Championship" before that. At that time, the stars of coaching legend Sir Alex Ferguson were already confirmed as the new champions four game days before the end.

Arsenal FC is also among the teams that have secured the title in the Premier League the fastest. In the 2003/04 season, the so-called "Invincibles" of coach Arsene Wenger scored 90 points in a season without a defeat. The reward was the championship in the Premier League on April 25, 2004 - four game days before the end.

One team is still missing to complete the list - and that's Manchester United again. In the 2012/13 season, the Red Devils made the title on matchday 34 by defeating Aston Villa.

Liverpool FC on the way to the championship: Klopp exercises humility - "We are not geniuses"

Gradually, Jürgen Klopp is advancing into club-historical dimensions with Champions League winners FC Liverpool. The German football coach became aware of this on Saturday after the 2-1 (2-1) win against AFC Bournemouth, as the Reds under Klopp outbid the legendary Liverpool team manager Bill Shankly's record with their 22nd home win in the championship in a row from 1972.

"I'll never compare myself to him," said Klopp very modestly after the game. "The Normal One" added: "It's nice, it's something special. But the game showed that we have to fight hard to be successful." And Klopp is also clear: "We are not geniuses, but we can fight and we have to do that by the end of the season."

In general, the former Dortmund and Mainz coach could breathe a sigh of relief that the mini-crisis ended with three bankruptcies in four competitive games. The premium strikers Mo Salah (25th) and Sadio Mane (33rd) provided the decisive goals for the Liverpoolers, who are well on their way to winning their first championship title in 30 years. Callum Wilson (9th) had surprisingly brought the blatant outsider into the lead.

After the 0: 2 (0: 1) defeat of pursuers Manchester City in the city duel at United on Sunday, the Klopp-Elf two wins from the remaining nine games are definitely enough to triumph in the Premier League. With 88 points, the Reds could no longer be ousted from the top, no matter what the competitors do.

The team from Anfield Road had recently weakened a little. There were defeats in the Champions League at Atletico Madrid (0: 1), in the league at Watford (0: 3) and during the week in the FA Cup at Chelsea (0: 2). In between was only a 3-2 win against West Ham United on February 24th.

On Wednesday (9 p.m. / DAZN) in the premier class in the second leg against Atletico, the quarter-finals should be made perfect, although the defensive bulwark of the Madrilenians should not be so easy to crack. But on Anfield Road, "FC Klopp" is a force - the Shankly record has only just been broken.
