Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum has ruled out the prospect of matching Arsenal’s infamous ‘invincibles’ season, despite Jurgen Klopp’s men going almost half a season without experiencing the bitter taste of defeat.
Liverpool moved to the summit of the table last weekend following their 4-0 win over Bournemouth coupled with Man City‘s defeat against Chelsea, a defeat which also leaves Jurgen Klopp’s men as the only unbeaten side in the top flight.
However, we aren’t even at the half way point in the campaign yet, and still have the always tricky Premier League festive fixture list to contend with, before the onset of FA Cup football in January and the return of the Champions League football in February.
Speaking after Liverpool‘s progress to the Champions League knockout stages was confirmed, Reds number 5 Georginio Wijnaldum doesn’t think that it is possible to remain unbeaten all season, just like the great Arsenal side did back in 2003/4.
“Invincible? No, not really,” he told Sky Sports.
“We know we have to do a lot to not lose games and even more to win it.
“We know we have to give a good performance every week to continue the run we are in.
“I don’t really think we are invincible and, if we think that, we have a manager (Jurgen Klopp) that would put both feet on the ground.”
Liverpool host their bitter rivals Manchester United at Anfield this weekend, although the Red Devils are currently languishing in sixth, with a defeat potentially being the latest nail in Jose Mourinho’s coffin.
