Liverpool’s Croatian defender Dejan Lovren feels that Jurgen Klopp’s side can go unbeaten for the rest of the Premier League season and equal Arsenal’s ‘Invincibles’ side from 2004.
Liverpool are currently the only unbeaten side in the league and sit at top of the table after Manchester City were beaten at Stamford Bridge by Chelsea.
“Hopefully we can be unbeaten until the end of the season,” said Lovren. “That is why we came to Liverpool.
“Arsenal did it before so why not?”
Liverpool have not won the title since 1990 but go into the Christmas period on top after beating rivals Manchester United at Anfield last weekend.
“Of course it will be a challenge but this is what we want,” Lovren added. “We know we can do it.”
Liverpool could extend their lead by beating Wolves on Friday, but Lovren acknowledges that Pep Guardiola’s defending champions will take some beating again.
“I’m not sure that City have any weaknesses,” he added.
“Last year they won by 19 points. They know how to manage even when they lose. They also lost one or two games last year and still, they managed to be 19 points ahead.
“Look, there’s a competition. This is what we want, but we don’t look at who is in front of us or behind us. It’s just about us.”
