- 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.

‘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.
