Emmanuel Petit insists this Liverpool side are better than Invincibles

This seasons has seen Liverpool sweep aside every team before them. The Reds have utterly dominated the Premier League since August, dropping just four points during an historic campaign. Whilst Jürgen Klopp’s men won’t finish the season unbeaten, Emmanuel Petit has insisted that this Liverpool side are better than the Arsenal Invincibles.

Petit is something of an Arsenal icon.

The Frenchman joined the Gunners in 1997 and spent three years at Highbury.

Petit was one half of arguably the best ever defensive midfield partnership the Premier League has ever seen, lining up alongside Patrick Vieira for Arsene Wenger.

The long haired enforcer won the double with the Gooners before moving to Barcelona and dropping into defence due to some unfortunate injuries.

Speaking to The Mirror, Emmanuel Petit was full of praise for Liverpool, insisting they are better than the Arsenal Invincibles of 2004:

“It’s amazing what they are doing – it is rare to see a team winning so many games and being so dominant against their opponents all the time. They were both great teams in history, but for me this Liverpool team have something special.

“It is hard to explain what I feel when I look at Liverpool, but I don’t remember thinking the same way when I was looking at the Invincibles. They have impressed me more than Arsenal’s Invincibles.”

What RTK has to say

This will be a debate that will rage for years to come.

However, it is hard to argue that the Arsenal Invincibles are even a patch on this team Jürgen Klopp has assembled.

The Invincibles drew a tremendous amount of games, The Reds have won 27 of their 29 games – that is an incredible, unheard of feat.

We may see the invincibles again, Liverpool could do it next season. We won’t see another side match this Reds team for some time.
