Manchester United and Chelsea are among the teams that set unwanted records after struggling through the campaign, with the Gunners inking their names in the history books for the right reasons after an impressive campaign under Mikel Arteta.

Be that as it may, some of the records set in the 30 years since the inception of the Premier League seem to stand above the rest and almost impossible to surpass.

Top 10 incredible EPL records that may never be broken.

10. Fewest games to score three hat-tricks

Manchester City hotshot Erling Haaland holds the record for the fewest games taken to score a hat-trick.

The Norwegian set the record in his maiden season in the Premier League. The towering forward scored three hat-tricks in just eight games.

9. Fewest points in a season

Derby County scored the fewest points in the Premier League during the 2007/08 season.

At the time, the Rams managed a measly 11 points throughout the campaign, finishing bottom of the table.

8. Most consecutive defeats

Sunderland holds the record for the most consecutive defeats in the Premier League

The Black Cats set the unwanted record between 2003 and 2005 when they went on a 20-game losing streak,

7. John Burridge's record

The Premier League is one of the most competitive divisions in the world.

Given this fact, a number of players end their careers in the English top flight in their 30s.

However, John Burridge beat all odds to play in the EPL at the age of 43 years and 162 days.

He holds the record for being the oldest player ever to feature in the division.

6. Smallest title-winning margin

As highlighted above, the Premier League is quite competitive.

This often sees the title race being challenged until the later days of the campaign.

As witnessed during the 2023/24 campaign, the title had to be decided on the final day, with Manchester City successfully defending the crown by two points.

The record for the smallest title-winning margin still belongs to the Citizens.

According to GiveMeSports, City won the 2011/12 trophy by an eight-goal margin, finishing level on points with rivals Manchester United.

5. Fastest goal in a match

Shane Long is the proud record holder for the fastest goal ever recorded in the Premier League.

Per the Premier League, Long set the record in April 2019 when he scored after just 7.69 seconds for Southampton against Watford.

4. Longest unbeaten home record

Liverpool, Manchester United, and City are among the teams that have built fortresses at their home grounds.

However, it is Chelsea who hold the record for the longest unbeaten home record.

Between March 2004 and October 2008, the Blues went 86 games without tasting defeat in the Premier League.

3. Lowest match attendance

There is no doubt that the Premier League is the division that boasts the biggest fanbase in the world.

This often sees fans throng stadiums to watch their favourite teams in action.

While the COVID pandemic saw matches played without fans, in 1993, a fixture pitting Wimbledon v Everton recorded the lowest fan attendance in the history of the EPL.

Only 3,039 fans turned up to watch the match.

2. Fewest goals conceded

Jose Mourinho is regarded as 'The Special One' for a reason.

During the 2004/05 season, the Portuguese assembled one of the most solid teams of his career.

Mourinho's Chelsea conceded only 15 goals at the time, the lowest ever recorded.

1. Arsenal's Invincible record

Finally on this list is Arsenal's Invincible record.

In 2003/04, Arsene Wenger led the Gunners to an incredible campaign that saw his side go an entire Premier League season without tasting defeat.

While Bayer Leverkusen became one of the other handful of European teams to replicate the feat, this record may never be broken in the Premier League, especially considering the level of competition in the division.

Ederson makes EPL history

In other related news, Sports Brief also reported on Ederson making Premier League history on Sunday, May 19.

The Brazilian goalkeeper became the most successful shot-stopper after Manchester City's triumph.
