Liverpool are the champs, but there are still matches to play. They work on a points system (3 points per win and 1 point per draw) and Liverpool has 86 points (28-2-1 record) and second place Manchester City is far behind with 63. They've set 5 Premier League records, including earliest title win (7 games left to play), and can possibly set 5 more.
