Liverpool can join an exclusive club on Saturday if they avoid defeat against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

The Reds have gone 29 games unbeaten in a run stretching back to last season.

Manchester City were the last team to inflict a loss on Jurgen Klopp’s side on January 3, 2019.

Should they leave Palace with at least a point, their 30-match run would make them just the fifth Premier League team in history to have achieved that feat.

City went on a 30-game unbeaten run from April 2017 to January 2018 when it was Liverpool who finally beat them 4-3 at Anfield.

Arsenal feature twice on the list and they went 30 matches without losing from December 2001 to October 2002.

The run started with a 10-man victory over Liverpool that included the 2001/02 title but was ended by a 16-year-old Wayne Rooney.

Chelsea went 40 matches unbeaten under Jose Mourinho from October 2004 to October 2005 on their way to back-to-back league titles.

The Gunners can claim the longest unbeaten run in history and famously went the whole 2003/04 season unbeaten.

Teams to go 30 or more Premier League games unbeaten

Manchester City – 30 (April 2017 – January 2018)

Arsenal – 30 (December 2001 – October 2002)

Chelsea – 40 (October 2004 – October 2005

Arsenal – 49 (May 2003 – October 2004)

The entire run spanned from May 2003 to October 2004 before Manchester United stopped it shot on 49.

All the teams who have gone 30 games or more without losing have then gone on to win the Premier League.

Liverpool are currently eight points clear at the top of the table with 11 wins and a draw from their first 12 games.
