Arsenal manager Unai Emery thinks that the current Liverpool team could go on to emulate The Gunners side of 2003/04 by having an ‘Invincible,’ season, going unbeaten for the whole league campaign.
“At the moment they are doing it and they can do it,” Emery replied when asked if Liverpool could go unbeaten at his pre-match press conference.
“They can do that because they are doing it at the moment. We played against Liverpool three years ago with Sevilla in the final of the Europa League and I look at this progress and they are a very good example.”
The former Sevilla and PSG manager also gave a nod to the progress made by Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp’s leadership since his arrival in late 2015.
“The progression with Liverpool is clear. Three years ago, they were out of the Champions League through the Premier League and through the Europa League, because they lost against us (Sevilla).’’ Emery added.
“This progress is also one example for us, now, in our moment. But we need to be very, very demanding of ourselves to do this step quickly in our way. But we need also time and sometimes the patience is very important for us.”
