Arsene Wenger, the former Arsenal manager, has disclosed that Liverpool are on course to go unbeaten and win the Premier League title this season.
Liverpool wrapped up their 17th win of the campaign with a 4-0 win over second-placed Leicester City on Boxing Day.
The Reds have only dropped points against Manchester United so far this season.
But Wenger now believes that Jurgen Klopp’s men are on the right track to repeat Arsenal’s ‘Invincibles’ feat of 2003/2004 this term.
Asked whether Liverpool can pull off an ‘Invincible’ season, Wenger told beIN SPORTS: “They were close last year and they are still on course to do it.
“But I think what Liverpool is expecting at the moment is just to win the Premier League and that is the first target for such a football city.
“To stay for 30 years without winning the Premier League… nobody would have predicted that.
“That is their main target and I think they are on a good run and on a good course to achieving that this season because their main opponent is quite far away already.”
