Win the game against Sunderland on the last day of the season and Chelsea who are already champions of England, will set a new record of number of wins in a Premier League season; Chelsea will be the first team to achieve a record 30 wins in a single season. This record seems very achievable on Sunday.
However, there’s another record Antonio Conte’s men could also achieve this season. Chelsea could win the league by one of the biggest points margins in history if Tottenham lose their next two matches.
Tottenham have two away games against Leicester City (tonight) and Hull City on the last day of the season. If Spurs lose those games, then Chelsea will set another record of biggest points margin in the Premier League history.
Chelsea are currently 10 points clear of Spurs and that gap could finish as large as 13 points if the north London club lose their last two remaining games and Chelsea win their remaining one.
No Premier League team has achieved a title-winning gap of 13 points. And if it happens, it would be the joint second largest winning margin of any top flight champion in English football history.
Manchester United have the record for the biggest points gap. Sir Alex Ferguson’s side won the league with an impressive 91 points in 1999/00. That was a whopping 18 more than second placed Arsenal who had 73.
However, the gap difference in the Premier League hasn’t reached such heights.
Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea won the league by 12 points in 2004/05 with 95 points to Arsenal’s 83, while Manchester United in 2012/13 and Arsenal in 2003/04, won the league by 11 points.
