Dejan Lovren has claimed that Liverpool can go the entire season unbeaten and emulate Arsenal’s 2003/04 Invincibles side, as per the BBC.
He said: “Hopefully we can be unbeaten until the end of the season. That is why we came to Liverpool. Arsenal did it before so why not? Of course it will be a challenge but this is what we want. We know we can do it.”
Lovren was heavily criticised in the early part of his Liverpool career and now seems to be making the most of being part of a successful team by making bold public statements.
He of course branded himself as one of the best defenders in the world during the summer, after making the final of both the Champions League and the World Cup.
In the most recent international break, he got embroiled in a war of words with Sergio Ramos after Croatia beat Spain 3-2, only to be part of a side that was relegated in the Nations League days later.
Title chases are not won by sweeping statements, but by quite efficiency on the pitch, and it perhaps belies a lack of experience in terms of trophy winning that Lovren keeps talking big.
Liverpool need to keep chuntering along, winning matches, and not attracting further attention by making bold claims.
Their fans would surely rather Lovren kept his mouth shut between now and the end of the season.
