Any bet on a team remaining unbeaten throughout the English Premier League season is expected to include Manchester City. A team that can play a match with Aguero, Sterling and De Bruyne on the bench is going to be hard to beat, but this weekend’s Premier League fixtures follow a 2-0 loss at Chelsea. Instead, it’s Liverpool who are being talked about as the new Invincibles.
An unbeaten top-flight season has only happened twice before. Preston North End did it in 1888-89, the very first league season. They only had to play 22 games but won the FA Cup for good measure. The only other time it’s happened was in the 2003-04 season when Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal went unbeaten. They had 38 games to play and didn’t lose one of them, mind you they did draw 12 times.
Best Ever Start
Fast forward to the 2018-19 season and Liverpool have made their best start to a league season. Their win at Bournemouth last weekend took them to the top of the English Premier League, unbeaten in their first 16 league games winning 13 of them. But could they possibly remain unbeaten for the rest of the season?
Anfield Becomes a Fortress Again
It’s 10/1 at Coral that Jurgen Klopp’s team manage to avoid losing any of their remaining 25 league games. Anfield has again been turned into a fortress with teams not just struggling to get a win, just scoring is hard enough with just one conceded at home in seven league games. They still have to play Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea at home.
On their travels, Liverpool have won seven out of nine with just five goals conceded. Not a bad record considering they’ve already had to play Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham. They have to visit both the Manchester clubs and Everton by March 2 but almost anything looks possible for Liverpool this season.
