The Premier League 2019-20 season is set to resume from June 17th, with Aston Villa hosting Sheffield United on that date, while Manchester City will welcome Arsenal.
These are both rearranged games to ensure all 20 Premier League clubs have played 29 matches each heading into the ensuing weekend.
There are 92 Premier League fixtures left to be played in total in the present campaign, which was suspended in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. It’s the third top European domestic league to start this month, besides La Liga and Serie A.
Ahead of the league’s resumption, let’s take a look at the Premier League records which can be broken this season.
#1 Kevin De Bruyne could surpass Thierry Henry’s assist record
Belgian ace Kevin De Bruyne has been superb for Manchester City in the present campaign and has 16 assists to his name. He is closing in on former Arsenal forward Thierry Henry’s assist record.
The Frenchman holds the record for most assists in a single Premier League campaign; Henry had registered 20 assists in 2002-03. De Bruyne, who has thus far provided 63 assists in the English top-tier, needs five more this season to get past Henry.
#2 Jamie Vardy could win his maiden Premier League Golden Boot
Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has been in supreme form in front of goal this season and is currently the league’s top goalscorer with 19 strikes to his name.
Notably, Vardy is just six short of registering his best tally in a single Premier League season. The Englishman had smashed 24 goals in the 2015-16 season to help Leicester win the title but he lost out on the Golden Boot race to Tottenham’s Harry Kane (25). Vardy will be desperate to win his maiden Premier League Golden Boot at the end of the season and help the Foxes secure Champions League qualification in the process.
#3 Jamie Vardy and Sergio Aguero on the brink of achieving special feats
Jamie Vardy has thus far scored 99 Premier League goals and is set to become the 29th player to score 100-plus goals in the league. Moreover, he needs six more goals to go past former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba (104).
On the other hand, Sergio Aguero is the fourth-highest goalscorer in the league (180). The Manchester City ace, who has netted 16 times in the league this season, needs eight more to go past Manchester United legend Andy Cole’s tally of 187.
#4 Liverpool could become the first team to win all 19 home matches in a season
The likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City have all managed 18 home wins in a single Premier League season. The Reds have won all 15 of their clashes at Anfield this season so far and can become the first team to register an all-win home record in a Premier League campaign if they are victorious in their remaining four matches on Merseyside.
Moreover, Jurgen Klopp’s side, who have won 27 times in the Premier League this season, are six wins away from bettering the 32 victories claimed by Manchester City in 2017-18 and 2018-19. Liverpool have won 12 away games this season and need five victories to overcome the Citizens’ tally of 16 set in 2017-18. Notably, the Reds have five away games left this season.
#5 Liverpool could break Manchester City’s 100-point record
Liverpool need another 19 points from a possible 27 to beat Manchester City’s record of 100 points in a single Premier League campaign. Pep Guardiola’s side had set the record back in 2017-18.
The Reds have collected 82 points from 29 matches and look set to end the season with the most-ever points tally in a single Premier League campaign.
