The English Premier League is the biggest league in the world and playing in the Premier League comes with a lot of pressure. There has been numerous of records set by teams, players and coaches which seems very impossible to be broken.

There are records that will last for decades and centuries before someone broke it. Recently, Cristiano Ronaldo broke Brazilian legend, Pele record of the player with the highest number of goals in football. This record has been standing for over 30 and Lionel Messi broke Gerd Muller's 35 years record of most goals in a single season.

Many records has been created by various Premier League club which seems impossible to break and could even take decades and centuries before a team achieve that fear.

Let's take a look at the 10 Premier League records that could take clubs years to break.

1. Smallest title-winning margin:

Club: Manchester City

(0 points, 8 goal difference from Man City in 2011/12)

Manchester City holds the record of the smallest title winning margin when they beat Manchester United on goal difference to win the title in 2011/2012.

2) Fewest points in a season:

Club: Derby County

(11 points - Derby County in 2007/08)

Derby County were alarmingly bad during the 2007/08 season which saw them finish with only 11 points and we may probably never see a repeat again.

3) Fewest points in a season while winning the league

Club: Manchester United

(75 points - in 1996/97)

Back in 1996/97, Manchester United won the Premier League with just 75 points which happens to be the lowest point to win the EPL title in history.

These days, 75 points might not helped you finish in the top four as clubs like Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City have shown us that 100 points is achievable.

4) Most consecutive games undefeated

Club: Arsenal

(49 games - -7 May 2003 to 24 October 2004)

Arsenal's famous unbeaten Invincibles season of 2003/04 has legendary status and will always remain in the history book. It will be had for any team to achieve this feat.

Liverpool tried it when they went 19 games unbeaten but eventually lost and ended the season with 3 losses.

5) Lowest attendance

(3,039 - Wimbledon 1–3 Everton - Selhurst Park, 26 January 1993)

With the television endorsement and deals coming into the Premier League today, this is definitely the record that many are confident will never be broken.

Just 3,000 people attended the match at Selhurst Park between Wimbledon vs Everton.

Honourable mentions, Manchester City's 100 points record, Chelsea least goals conceded in a season (15).
