Stuart Pearce highlights the only way Liverpool won't match Arsenal's unbeaten record
Former England defender, Stuart Pearce, has spoken of what he thinks is the only way Liverpool won’t go the season unbeaten.
The Reds are currently top of the Premier League table. They demolished Leicester City on Boxing Day to cement their spot.
They’ve also won the World Club Cup and remain undefeated in the Premier League. Only Manchester United have taken a point off them this season.
And according to Stuart Pearce, only Liverpool can prevent Liverpool from going the whole campaign unbeaten.
“The only thing that might stop them doing it is if they win the league and then [Klopp] plays around with the team at the end of the season,” Pearce said (The Express, quotes from Talksport)
“But at this moment in time, I don’t see them being stoppable.”
Pearce was suitably impressed with their display at the King Power Stadium. The former England man pointing out how their high pressing game worked brilliantly.
“The work-rate from the front five is incredible,” he added.
“Leicester couldn’t get out of their own half. I’ve never seen a team win the ball back so many times in the opposition half”.
Trent Alexander-Arnold was the star of the show for the Reds. The right-back creating three goals before firing in a fourth for himself.
That win, coupled with Man City’s loss at Wolves last night, means the Reds are now 13 points clear of Leicester in second.
Arsenal remain the only team to go a full Premier League campaign unbeaten. The ‘Invincibles’ team of 2003/04 went nearly 50 games unbeaten before Manchester United beat them 2-0 at Old Trafford.
A few seasons ago we saw a Man City side who many thought would never be usurped as the best Premier League side ever.
This Liverpool team, however, are threatening to dislodge them. They look unstoppable, as Pearce says, and Jurgen Klopp has them playing as a team.
Add in the quality they’ve got and it makes for quite the team. The title race is already over. The big question is, can Liverpool win the Champions League again? Time will tell.
