Liverpool are serious contenders to win the Premier League this year, but Center Back Dejan Lovren thinks the club can do even better than that by going the entire Premier League season unbeaten.
After defeating Manchester United 3-1 last weekend, Liverpool achieved the fourth-best start of the season record in Premier League history.
However, going unbeaten is something only one team has ever done in the entire history of the Premier League. Arsenal’s “Invincibles” were the only team that accomplished that feat, in the 2003-2004 season.
“It [the United win] is a good result, I would say, for us,” defender Lovren told reporters. “Hopefully we can be unbeaten until the end of the season.”
“I’m not sure that they have any weaknesses,” Lovren said. “Last year they won by 19 points.”
“They know how to manage even when they lose. They lost one or two games last year. Still, they managed to be 19 points ahead.”
“It doesn’t mean anything. There are so many games in front of us and in front of them. It will be a tight race and it’s not only City. Tottenham are only a couple of points behind.”
“You cannot sit and enjoy and say: ‘We are five or six points in front of everyone’. It doesn’t work like that. Every game, for us, is a final.”
“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.”
“It’s more about how we train, how we do on the pitch, and the result will come. There are quite a lot of games still to go, but we go game by game.”
