On the bounce

After yesterday’s 2-0 win over Watford, Liverpool have now won 15 consecutive games – that’s 15 games in a row, which is an amazing feat. Another way of saying ‘in a row’ or ‘consecutive’ is ‘on the bounce‘; so, we could say that Liverpool have now won 15 Premier League games on the bounce – they have won 15 games in succession.

Example: Leicester make it eight wins on the bounce (Talksport, December 8th 2019).

      Feat means an achievement – an amazing achievement.
