Report: Martin Keown backs Liverpool to go invincible this season

Jürgen’s Reds mate. These Reds are some of the greatest Reds we’ve ever seen. They have been smashing records left and right, blowing away any team that dares stand in their way – the 4-0 humiliation of Leicester City on Boxing Day will go down as a defining win of the Klopp era. There is one record on the horizon that stands out more than any other and one man in particular thinks the Reds can do it – Martin Keown has backed Liverpool to go invincible this season.

Only one side in modern history has managed an invincible season: The Arsenal Invincibles of 2003-04 – led to immortality by Arsene Wenger.

Whilst the Gunners’ unbeaten campaign rightly retains its place in history, they picked up a helluva lot of draws along the way – winning 26 and drawing 12. Put it this way – Liverpool got more points when they finished second in 2018/19 than Arsenal did when they went unbeaten.

Gunners legend and 03-04 veteran Martin Keown believes Liverpool will go invincible this season, he told the Daily Mail:

“There are certain ingredients you need to go unbeaten for so long, and fear from the opposition is one. We had that at Arsenal back then, and Liverpool have that now…The manager has to create an environment where everybody wants to do better. Arsene Wenger did that with us, so has Klopp…It won’t be easy. But as someone who was part of an Invincibles group 16 years ago, do I think Liverpool will stay unbeaten this season? Yes I do.”

What RTK has to say

Keown has grown quite fond of Jürgen’s Reds, he is often found swooning over the Liverpool backline – Joe Gomez in particular.

The Reds aren’t thinking about their invincible potential, Klopp is getting tired of it being talked about. However, having someone that has been there and done that come out and say that he believes they can do it is a massive endorsement of the Red’s credentials.
