Although most of the leagues and competitions have now been canceled due to Coronavirus, some of the activities are not stopping even in the interruption. However, Liverpool can miss a record of the longest-running team in the season.
Liverpool, who are on the verge of winning the 2019-20 Premier League, is expected to make a big impact with the absence of the league. The biggest goal the Reds are keeping in mind is that they want to become the longest-running team in the top half of the season with only Chelsea and Manchester United ahead of them.
Chelsea recorded the longest pre-season record in the 2014-2015 season after 274 days before taking charge.
Liverpool are set to shatter a record recently held by both Chelsea and Manchester United for the most days spent at the top of the Premier League table. The record is held by Chelsea at 274 days. 🔝🔴

The club’s longest-running record was held by Chelsea ahead of Manchester United who spent 262 days in the 1993/94 season.
But just because of the spread of Corona’s infection and the delay of the season means Liverpool have a way of breaking those two records.
Liverpool currently leads 220 days with just 25 points and nine games left in the season. As for if the league ends in June the Reds will set a new record and reach 300 days or more under their leadership.
