Inaki Williams sets new La Liga record

Athletic Bilbao forward Inaki Williams broke the record for most consecutive games in La Liga history.

Inaki Williams reached this milestone as his side beat Alaves 1-0 on Friday.

The Spaniard, 27, played his 203rd successive match.

He surpassed the record held by former Real Sociedad defender Juan Larranaga from 1986-1992.

Williams’ streak started on 20 April 2016 and he has managed 39 goals and 25 assists in that time.

Raul Garcia headed in the winner just before half-time at San Mames.

The longest run of consecutive appearances in the Premier League stands at 310, by goalkeeper Brad Friedel.

For an outfield player, the longest run in the Premier League is Frank Lampard.

Lampard has 164 for Chelsea between October 2001 and December 2005.
