It is no longer when will Liverpool end their long wait for a league title. It is now about whether they will do it in a remarkable way, going unbeaten.
Unbeaten in English football reminds us of Arsenal football club. The Gunners 2003/2004 title winning campaign remains the sole full league season unbeaten record in English top flight football. It was a remarkable title wining campaign which gave the players the tag, The Invincible. Are we about to witness another invincible in Liverpool?
The Reds unarguably are having a superb season. They have so far won all but one of their matches with the exception a 1-1 draw away to Manchester United at Old Trafford back in October.
Jürgen Klopp has successfully built a team strong in all department, from the goalkeeper to the forwards. The trio of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have formed a wonderful attack. The high flying fullbacks of Andrew Robertson and Trent Arnold have become an integral part of the way the team plays, with their energetic runs and brilliant crosses.
Klopp has made a good use of workaholic midfielders which has helped dominate the midfield in most games. The ever reliable center backs led by Virgil van Dijk cannot go unnoticed. The substitute players are becoming lions waiting for an opportunity to devour their opponents. In fact Liverpool are simply terrific.
The Reds have played 22 games so far this season which is more than half the total matches for the season. They have had some tough clashes but have come out victorious in all winning 21 matches with one draw, a fate not easy to achieve. They have categorically played all the teams in the premier league this season except for West Ham. A confirmation of their resilience so far this season.
With the Merseyside club not looking like slowing down. It has become pertinent to ask, who would stop Liverpool?
Manchester United secured a 1-1 draw against Liverpool back in October. The Red Devils were expected to go a step further to inflict a defeat on Liverpool in their second leg. Liverpool instead proved they are ready for anyone by earning a 2-0 victory over their arch-rival.
The Reds are up against Wolves this night. Can Nuno Espirito men bring an end to their unbeaten run? Are we to look up to Manchester City? Would Chelsea do the job or are Arsenal going to step up to defend their pride? Should we otherwise expect a surprise from a lower team?
We can only ask but definitely the answer will be provided by the end of the season. So let us continue to enjoy the season as it becomes more interesting even as we anxiously expect the answer.
