Liverpool would have won the Premier League against Manchester City by an astronomical margin if the English league had started 38 games.
Liverpool is having a great run of football in Europe, as the Reds are leading the Premier League title race and are yet to be defeated after the 12 games and also lead their group in the Champions League.
The form of last season continues, as they have not been defeated in the Premier League ever since Manchester City beat them by 2-1 last season, a defeat that technically cost them the title last season.
However, new data shows that had the Premier League started 38 games ago, Liverpool would have won the league by a great margin of 10 points against Manchester City.
Liverpool would have amassed a staggering (and record-breaking) 101 points, winning 32, drawing five and losing just once. That gives the Reds a 2.66 points-per-game average.
Meanwhile, Manchester City would have ended with a lesser number of points- 91 compared to their last season’s tally, which was 98. Coming to other Premier League clubs Chelsea would have ended on 3rd spot with 31 points behind Liverpool.
Whereas, Arsenal would have ended 4th in the table with 38 points behind the Reds. Thus, this gives an insight into how much Liverpool has dominated the league in the last few months.
As we go further down the table, we can see that the likes of Southampton, Watford and Brighton are likely to be in trouble at the end of the current campaign.

Now, Liverpool has achieved great start to the season, as they are 8 points ahead of Leicester City and Chelsea in the table and need to convert this dominance in title victory, which they have failed to do so last season.
Last season also Liverpool had a huge lead till December but they succumbed to the pressure at times and lost crucial points, which allowed Manchester City to win the league by a single point.
