After emerging triumphant in their match against Bournemouth, Liverpool remains on course to defeat Manchester United's Premier League record of securing the title with more than five matches left.

The Reds defeated Bournemouth 2-1 in their last Premier League fixture, and as a result, the side now just needs nine points to win the Premier League title.

If Liverpool manages to win their next three matches, then they would be crowned the champions with six games to spare in the tournament.

At this rate, the title win would come on April 5 after the match against Manchester City. If Liverpool is crowned the champion on this date, then the side would go past Manchester United's record of securing the Premier League with more than five matches left in the tournament.

Manchester United had won the Premier League in 2001 with five games to spare and this is the fastest in the competition's history. Recently the Red Devils completed a double win over neighbour rivals Manchester City in Sunday's Manchester Derby with a 2-0 margin.
