Lfc Info News: set for third successive unwanted record


Liverpool are on course to earn the unfortunate record of hitting the woodwork more than any other team for a third successive Premier League campaign.

The Reds remain top of the league with two games remaining but could be overtaken by third place Manchester City who trail the Reds by two points with a game in hand.

Liverpool had their title fate in their own hands before their crucial 0-2 defeat at Anfield last week at the hands of Chelsea.

Despite Steven Gerrards slip which gave Chelsea the breakthrough in Sundays encounter being costly, Liverpools poor fortune in front of goal could in fact be the decisive factor in regard to the title race.

Brendan Rodgers side are the leagues top scorers with a whopping 96 goals yet have struck the woodwork more times than any other team with 26 strikes hitting the post or bar.

Shockingly, Liverpool have held the same record for the past two seasons. In the 2011/12 campaign, they set a Premier League record for hitting the woodwork 33 times while they repeated that feat last season.

With just two matches remaining, it remains to be seen whether Liverpool will equal the last two seasons' unwanted record.
