Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admits he does not want Liverpool to replicate their Invincibles season.
But he insists he would congratulate Jurgen Klopp’s side if they do lift the Premier League trophy without tasting defeat.
The Reds are yet to taste defeat so far this season and have one hand on the trophy with a 19-point lead after 26 games of the top flight campaign.
With 12 games remaining and the title race all but over, all eyes are now on whether they can go the entire season without tasting defeat, as Wenger’s Gunners famously did in 2003/04.
There is already talk of Liverpool receiving a special gold Premier League trophy to mark the achievement, as Arsenal did over a decade ago, yet Wenger does not want to see it happen
Asked about the prospect of Liverpool matching his Invincibles, Wenger told beIN Sports: “That’s possible. It might happen, yes.
“I do not necessarily want it. You want always to be the only one who does something special.
“But if they do it, I would say ‘well done’. Records are there to be equalled at least or to be beaten, if they deserve it.
“They have been exceptional really because they lost only one game last year, they have not lost one this year.
“The remarkable consistency they’ve shown, they deserve to be there.”
With the title race all but over, Wenger admitted eyes are now on the race for the Champions League places.
