‘Arsenal did it before so why not?’ Lovren Believes Liverpool Can Be The Next ‘Invincibles’
Dejan Lovren says Liverpool can match Arsenal’s ‘Invincibles’ by going the whole season unbeaten.
Liverpool are the only side in the Premier League yet to lose a game after 14 wins and three draws in 17 games, and the Croatian centre-back believes they could repeat the achievement of Arsenal’s 2003/2004 team.
Speaking after Liverpool’s 3-1 win over Manchester United last Sunday, Lovren said:
“Hopefully we can be unbeaten until the end of the season,” said Lovren, buoyed by Sunday’s victory over arch-rivals Manchester United.
“Arsenal did it before so why not?”
Liverpool face Wolves on Friday and a win will take them four points clear of Manchester City. He also said City has no weaknesses and the title race will be a tight one.
“I’m not sure that they have any weaknesses,” he added.
“Last year they won by 19 points. They know how to manage even when they lose. They also lost one or two games last year and still they managed to be 19 points ahead.
“It doesn’t mean anything. There are so many games in front of us and in front of them. It will be a tight race and it’s not only City, Tottenham are only a few points behind.
“You cannot sit and enjoy and say: ‘We are five or six points in front of everyone’. It doesn’t work like that. Every game for us is a final.
“They won on Saturday so we had pressure (against United the following day).
“It can be from both ways a positive thing. We will not look back, we will just look forward.
“Look, there’s a competition. This is what we want, but we don’t look at who is in front of us or behind us. It’s just about us.
“It’s more about how we train, how we do on the pitch and the result will come. There are quite a lot of games still to go but we go game-by-game.”
