Statistically, Liverpool better than Man Utd 1999 Treble winners

first_imgLiverpool continued their impressive Premier League campaign with a 2-0 win at West Ham last night and are now statistically better than Manchester United’s 1999 treble winners. Jurgen Klopp’s side have been in phenomenal form as they sit 19 points ahead of Manchester City in second. It has been nearly 30 years since Liverpool last won a league title and Klopp’s side are edging closer to ending that drought. With 23 victories under their belt Liverpool have won more games – with 14 Prem matches still to go – than two previous Prem title winners managed in a whole season – Man Utd in 1996-97 and their 1998-99 Treble-winning campaign. Last night’s win saw Liverpool reach 70 points after 24 league games, while all other teams in top-flight history have needed at least 27 matches to hit 70 – if they managed to at all. The attacking trio of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah have been far too strong for Premier League sides this season, scoring 31 goals between them. They last beat every league side they faced in a season 124 years ago (1895-96) in the second tier. Alisson, Andy Robertson, Virgil van Dijk and Trent Alexander-Arnold have been in outstanding form to provide the tightest defence in the league, conceding only 15 times in their 24 matches so far.

With a formidable defence and a potent attacking force, they’ve now gone 41 league matches without losing and are now just nine games from beating the Arsenal Invincibles’ unbeaten top-flight run of 49 matches. Jurgen Klopp’s men have won their last 15 league matches – only the fourth occasion a team has won 15-plus English top-flight games in a row. Liverpool could secure the title at the Etihad against closest challengers Manchester City at the beginning of April. It could be a memorable season for the Reds as they look to defend their Champions League title as well as clinch the Premier League. Atletico Madrid present a tough task in the round of 16 in Europe. Diego Simeone’s side are ten points off the top of the La Liga table and could put all their efforts into another crack at the Champions League.

Andy Ruiz Jr plans Kownacki, Arreola fight

first_imgRelatedPosts Joshua: Why I visited Nigeria as non-champion Joshua resumes training for Pulev WBA Champion Charr to hold Ruiz Jr talks Andy Ruiz Jr is set for a summer return to the ring and will face either Adam Kownacki or Chris Arreola, according to reports. The 30-year-old Mexican-American scored a shock seventh-round knockout victory over Anthony Joshua in June to claim the WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight championships. His reign was short-lived though, with Joshua besting him on points in an immediate rematch in December. But by his own admission, Ruiz was underprepared for the fight, failed to train properly and came in at his highest weight in a decade at 283.5 pounds. Last week Ruiz said he was ready to fight Tyson Fury after the Gypsy King claimed the WBC heavyweight title with victory over Deontay Wilder late last month. But according to The Athletic, it is Kownacki and Arreola who are in the frame for Ruiz’s planned August return. The 30-year-old Kownacki 20-0 (15) is expected to keep his undefeated record intact when he clashes with Finland’s Robert Helenius 29-3 (18) at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Saturday night. Arreola 38-6-1 (33), who is about to turn 39, engaged in an entertaining back-and-forth brawl with Kownacki back in August. The veteran has not been in action since. Ruiz 33-2 (22) will be preparing for his comeback with a new trainer after parting ways with Manny Robles following his defeat to Joshua. “Andy was just doing whatever the hell he wanted to do. The dad, obviously with him being the manager, he just had no control over his son. None of us had control of him, for that matter,” Robles said in January. “So I just saw it coming, it wasn’t going to work because he wasn’t listening. He’s not listening to me, he’s not listening to his dad, he’s not listening to anybody. He said it himself after the press conference. “Fortunately for me, Andy took the blame on himself and didn’t sit there like a majority of fighters and blame the coach.”— Tags: Adam KownackiAndy Ruiz JrChris Arreolalast_img read more
