Arsenal legend David Seaman admits that he expected Liverpool to replicate the Gunners’ achievement of going through a whole campaign unbeaten this season.
Former Arsenal goalkeeper David Seaman has actually confessed that he expected Jurgen Klopp‘s Liverpool to replicate the ‘Invincibles’ season from 2003-04 this season.
The Reds incredibly dropped just 2 points from their first 27 games of the present campaign, breaking all sorts of records en path to the very best start ever seen in any of Europe’s leading leagues.
Nevertheless, their unbeaten run ended with a sensational 3-0 defeat at the hands of relegation-threatened Watford in February, and Seaman thinks the result shows precisely how outstanding Arsenal’s achievement of going through a whole campaign unbeaten was.
“It shows how hard it was. If I’m honest, I did think Liverpool were going to do it because they looked so good. They were getting the ball back and they looked the perfect team. Did anyone see that coming at Watford?” Seaman is priced quote as stating by The Mirror.
” It was unexpected. What a standard Liverpool have actually set. They set it last season however Man City were even much better and Liverpool are like amachine They all understand their tasks, they are so well organised and work so hard, it’s nearly as if they have actually a set time to win the ball back.
” I heard Ray Parlour discussing it and stating after they had won the league it was hard to concentrate on thegames They had one game at Portsmouth, they got damaged and still got a result due to the fact that Jens Lehmann managed some great conserves. It would have been harder for Liverpool.”
Liverpool sit 25 points clear at the top of the Premier League table with play currently suspended and need just 6 more points to protect their first title given that 1990.
