Are Liverpool the new Invincibles? Jurgen Klopp’s side look unstoppable, says Stuart Pearce
The Reds have won 17 of their 18 league matches to date and drawn the other, to sit 13 points clear in first place.
While those involved with the Anfield club may be playing down Liverpool’s chances of winning their first ever Premier League title, many consider the title race done and dusted.
Some bookies have already paid out on Liverpool securing the trophy, and it would take the biggest collapse in sporting history for them to not win the Premier League considering their current position.
So the question is not ‘can they win it?’ – it is ‘can Liverpool win the Premier League undefeated?’
Only twice before have teams finished an English top flight season without losing a match; Preston did it in the first ever Football League season in 1888/89, and Arsenal repeated the feat in 2003/04.
Both teams are referred to as the Invincibles – but can Liverpool join that exclusive club at the end of this campaign?
