Georginio Wijnaldum believes Liverpool can become the second ‘Invincibles’ and go unbeaten through the entire Premier League season
Led by Arsene Wenger, Arsenal became the first team in the modern Premier League history to claim the title without a single league defeat in 2003/04.
Matching the Gunners achievement is not the only milestone Jurgen Klopp’s men are chasing, as they are one triumph short of equalling Manchester City’s record of 18 successive top-flight wins set between August and December 2017.
The Reds’ 25-game unbeaten Premier League run will be on the line on Sunday when they face Manchester United at Old Trafford, but Wijnaldum believes this Liverpool side is capable of replicating Arsenal’s success.
“It is possible,” the Dutchman said, as transcribed by the Daily Mail.
“Nobody knows how it’s going to be. We have had some luck up to now, but we have also put a lot of hard work in.
“We don’t think about the fact that Arsenal did not lose in that season. We just try to give everything in every game.”
Although Klopp’s players enjoy a stellar start to the season, they will face an uphill task of securing a victory at Old Trafford for the first time since March 2014.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, meanwhile, endure a hard time but still have a solid head-to-head home record against Liverpool to rely on here.
The Red Devils have racked up a five-game undefeated home run against the Merseyside outfit, winning three of those clashes while playing out two draws in the process.
