Former Arsenal and ‘Invincibles’ defender Martin Keown is worried that Liverpool could be about to repeat the achievements of the legendary Gunners side that went an entire league season unbeaten.
With the Reds still boasting a perfect Premier League record this season as we head into October, Keown highlighted his fears that the Gunners’ unbeaten 2003/04 campaign is about to be matched by Jurgen Klopp’s as-yet faultless side in 2019/20.
“As a member of that illustrious group, the Invincibles, I think they can do it. That X-Factor is there. They are just living, breathing, winning football at the moment.
“You can see it. From all quarters, they are scoring goals.
“They were lucky [against Sheffield United], but often, it’s those sorts of games you look back on when you are champions – it seems as though Liverpool are in control of this – the remit has been ‘win every game’ because they think [Manchester] City will do, too.”
With Liverpool losing just once in their last 46 games in the league, it seems as though the Reds are certainly capable of prolonging their current unbeaten stretch to the end of the season.
Therefore, Keown’s concerns seem justified, with the Reds not even dropping any points since early March.
Though, perhaps the fact that it has only been done once in the modern era of English football demonstrates just how difficult of an achievement it would be to accomplish.
And although Liverpool have demonstrated a fallibility in falling to Napoli in the Champions League, while their surge towards the record books is by no means a given, their proven ability to be successful in multiple competitions last season suggests that a small improvement could lead to the Reds going at least one better in the Premier League this year.
