Barnes: Liverpool Will Not Go Unbeaten In The Premier League

Liverpool legend John Barnes says the Reds will not emulate Arsenal’s Invincibles, predicting they will lose at least one game.

Liverpool are yet to taste defeat in the Premier League this season after 25 games played so far.

The reigning European champions are 22 points clear at the top of the Premier League, still only in February.

The only points they dropped was from a 1-1 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford in October.

Jurgen Klopp’s men, who visit Norwich on Saturday, are looking to go all 38 games without defeat in the league – mirroring the Gunners side of 2003-04.

But former England star Barnes, who played for the Reds 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, Barnes said.

“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.”

Barnes who featured at the 1986 and 1990 World Cups added: “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.”

The Reds can win the title on March 21 if they win their next five games and then get three points against Crystal Palace that day.

But Liverpool could break Arsenal’s record of 49 league games unbeaten.

They are currently undefeated in 42 games stretching back from last season.

If the Reds win the title it will be their first Premier League crown and also their first league title in 30 years.
