GAMES WITH UNCHANGED STARTING LINEUPS

It's pretty rare to have an unchanged starting lineup from one game to another but we have (surprisingly) done it in 1153 of the 4968 league games we've played.

The most recent game with an unchanged starting lineup was against Sheffield United on May 17, 2022.

The Longest Streak Of League Games
