‘I reckon they will lose one game’: Liverpool legend John Barnes believes Jurgen Klopp’s side won’t emulate Arsenal’s invincibles by going entire Premier League season unbeaten

  • John Barnes believes Liverpool won’t go entire Premier League season unbeaten 
  • Liverpool have yet to suffer defeat in their 25 top flight games so far this season  
  • Barnes feels they will not be able to emulate Arsenal’s feat from 2003-04

Liverpool legend John Barnes believes the Reds will be unable to emulate Arsenal‘s unbeaten Premier League season.

Having played 25 league games this campaign, Liverpool have yet to suffer defeat and they are on track to match Arsenal’s remarkable feat from the 2003-04 campaign. 

However, Barnes believes that Jurgen Klopp‘s team will slip up at some stage during the next 13 games.

Barnes, who played for Liverpool between 1987 and 1997, told Bonus Code Bets: ‘I think they can go all season unbeaten, but I don’t think they will. I reckon they will lose one game but ultimately, they will still win the title comfortably.

‘At the end of the day it’s not important for Liverpool to go unbeaten, it’s important to win the league. I can’t see them coming up short against Norwich this weekend, but they will be beat before the end of the season and that’s fine.

LIVERPOOL’S REMAINING PREMIER LEAGUE FIXTURES 

Saturday – Norwich (away)

February 24 – West Ham (home)

February 29 – Watford (away)

March 3 – Bournemouth (home)

March 16 – Everton (away)

March 21 – Crystal Palace (home)

April 4 – Manchester City (away)

April 11 – Aston Villa (home)

April 18 – Brighton (away)

April 25 – Burnley (home)

May 2 – Arsenal (away)

May 9 – Chelsea (home)

May 17 – Newcastle (away)  

‘It doesn’t matter how well your team is doing because it’s the kind of league where anything can happen and a shock result could come against anybody, top or bottom half.

‘I can’t predict which games they will lose, but I do think they will be beaten this season.’ 

There are still some tests for Liverpool to face if they are to go the season without defeat.

For instance, next month they face rivals Everton away, while in April they travel to the Etihad Stadium to take on Manchester City.

In May Liverpool host Arsenal, who will be determined to prevent their opponents from matching their historic success. Liverpool also host Chelsea in their final home game of the season.

Liverpool could also break Arsenal’s record of going 49 league games unbeaten, with the Merseyside club having gone 42 games without defeat.  

Irrespective of whether they go unbeaten, Liverpool seem almost certain to win the title for the first time in 30 years – they are currently a staggering 22 points above Manchester City, who are second.

‘If they hide, I don’t like it’: Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta warns his players to show their mettle away at Olympiacos in first leg of last-32 Europa League tie

  • Arsenal face Olympiacos away in the first leg of their last-32 Europa League tie 
  • Mikel Arteta is gearing up for his first European match in charge of the Gunners
  • The Arsenal boss is expecting a tough test and hostile atmosphere on Thursday
  • He has warned his Arsenal players not to go hiding at the Karaiskakis Stadium

Mikel Arteta has warned his players not to go hiding when they resume their Europa League bid against Olympiakos.

Arsenal face the Greek league leaders in the first leg of their last-32 tie on Thursday and know exactly what to expect at the Karaiskakis Stadium, where Olympiacos have lost just once this season.

Arteta has watched plenty of Pedro Martins’ side ahead of his first European game in charge of Arsenal while he has also been able to call on the insight of Greek defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos.

ARSENAL’S LIKELY XI

ARSENAL (4-2-3-1): 

Leno; Bellerin, Sokratis, Mustafi, Kolasinac; Willock, Xhaka; Pepe, Ceballos, Martinelli; Lacazette

The Greece centre-back knows that a ‘tense’ atmosphere awaits Arsenal as well as opponents who are used to winning. Arteta, meanwhile, is wary of their passion and quality.

It will be a serious test of character for Arsenal’s players, particularly the younger ones Arteta selects, and he said: ‘It is part of the process. You don’t know until you expose them [how they will handle it].

‘They can have the best intention but they need to go to a stadium like here and when they make a mistake or a bad decision, have the courage to try again and play again.

‘And I want to see that in my players, whether they are 17 or 35. That’s what I expect from them.

‘If they keep trying, they have my full support. If they hide after that, I don’t like it.

‘But what I’ve seen up to now, every time they play on that field they are responding really, really well. That’s what I am hoping and I am sure they will do it tomorrow.’

Arsenal have travelled without Mesut Ozil, who has stayed behind as his wife is expecting their first child imminently.

Matteo Guendouzi is part of the squad Arteta brought to Greece after being axed for Sunday’s win at Newcastle having angered the Spaniard with his attitude during Arsenal’s winter break training camp in Dubai.
