Five Games That Stand Between Liverpool and an Unbeaten Season

Jose Mourinho, Mikel Arteta, Jurgen Klopp and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

There’s only one team in the modern history of English football that has gone through a whole Premier League season without losing a single game. You probably know that’s Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal of 2003-04. We thought we would never see such a feat again but we might witness history once again just 16 years later. There’s a good chunk of the season left but Liverpool has won 19 of the 20 games played so far, drawing the last one against Manchester United. Under such circumstances, it’s hard not to talk…

Can Liverpool Surpass the Record of Arsenal’s Invincibles?

Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool Players

Liverpool went unbeaten in the English Premier League for a full year last night, after winning against Sheffield United by 2-0 at home.

The Gunners even went unbeaten for a full campaign in 2003-2004 under Arsene Wenger, earning the nickname the Invincibles. Jurgen Klopp…

Liverpool reap rewards of scouting excellence

There is no argument to be had when comparing the squad of Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool to the embarrassment of riches available to Pep Guardiola at Manchester City. The club from the blue half of Manchester is able to deal with injuries to some of their most important players simply by entrusting another big-name in their place. Think of how much action Kevin De Bruyne has missed this season. The Belgian international has only started seven Premier League games in 2018/19. Yet, in De Bruyne’s absence, up stepped Bernardo Silva to…
