Premierleague football has ended in 2018 but it has been a memorable year for league leaders Liverpool, who are chasing their first name in 29 years.

Records were brokenup, history has been made and a great deal of objects were all scored.

Therefore why would failure to win the name be unprecedented for Liverpool, and also that which exactly is Fulham’s unusual seven-year record?

This is all the most useful stats from another year-ending round of fixtures.

Liverpool’s year to acquire it?

Liverpool go in to the brand new year seven points ahead on peak of the table and no team at Premier League history was so far clear on New Year’s Day and not gone on to get the name.

Twice teams have been five points ahead and finished second, but that’s the most significant lead that’s slipped at this stage.

The Reds’ haul of 54 points will be the best yield at this point in any given season by a margin of four points and, more impressively, it’s the third-best yield by any side at this stage at top flight history.

Liverpool have conceded just eight goals – the least they’ve let in after 20 matches – plus it’s only the next period in their history they haven’t missed a game at this phase.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said the league leaders could possibly be the “best team in the world today”.

Like all that wasn’t enough, Liverpool became the first team to win each of seven Premier League matches in December – infamously a really difficult month awarded fixture congestion. Manchester City, who achieved a record tally of all 100 points last season, came close in 201718 but after six straight successes brought with Crystal Palace on New Year’s Eve.

December – Monthly to overlook for some

While Liverpool’s December was one to consider, for others it had been entirely forgettable.

Huddersfield lost all their Premier League matches – the very first team to do so in one calendar month since Leicester lost seven at April 2001.

United rejuvenated under Solskjaer

Manchester United’s triumph against Bournemouth has been their third in a row – the first time they have achieved that since April. It indicates interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer becomes only the next United boss to win with his first 3 matches (after Sir Matt Busby along with Jose Mourinho).

Solskjaer’s team have scored 12 goals in three matches. In addition they scored four goals twice in eight weeks – the last 2 four-goal performances were divided from more than a year.

In 2 of Solskjaer’s three matches United have scored inside the first 5 minutes. This has been achieved just double in 24 matches under former supervisor Mourinho.

Solskjaer can be starting to get the most out of all World Cup winner & pound;89m midfielder Paul Pogba.

The Frenchman has scored four goals in his three premierleague appearances under the Norwegian – as much as he had in his previous 20 under Mourinho – which moves him par with Anthony Martial because the club’s top scorer in all contests (nine).
