Interestingly, Liverpool and Manchester City are the only teams to win 15 or more consecutive games in the Premier League era, and it’s a milestone they’ve each surpassed twice.
Manchester City were the first to set the record in Pep Guardiola’s second season, and his side virtually wrapped up the title by Christmas. After drawing their second game of the season with Everton, City won 18 on the bounce, eventually being held to a 0-0 draw by Crystal Palace on New Year’s Eve.
Liverpool’s title-winning season saw them win a record-equalling 18 games after drawing 1-1 with Manchester United before suffering a shock 3-0 defeat to Watford. It bookended what was arguably the most dominant spell of football seen in England, with Liverpool winning 17 consecutive games from the end of the previous season to the start of the following, for a total of 35 wins in 36 games.
After labouring through the start of the Covid-delayed 2020/21 campaign, City hit top gear around the turn of the year. In sixth place after drawing 1-1 at home to West Brom in December, City won 17 consecutive games, the run eventually being ended by Manchester United the following March.
Arsenal’s remarkable winning run at the end of the 2001/02 season saw them win 13 on the bounce to overhaul Manchester United and deny them a fourth straight title, winning the opening game of the following season, before having to come from 2-0 down to rescue a point against West Ham, ending their streak at 14.
