Andy Robertson doesn’t believe Liverpool will remain unbeaten in the Premier League this season
Arsenal are the only club to have gone an entire season unbeaten in the Premier League. That 2003-04 team featured some of the best footballers ever, and no team has been able to match that feat.
Liverpool came close to doing that last season as we lost just one game in the Premier League.
The Reds have started this season with six straight wins and have opened up a five-point lead to Manchester City.
The Cityzens lost to Norwich City a couple of weeks ago, but Andy Robertson expects the Reds to lose a game or two due to the competition of the league.
Robbo was speaking to ESPN FC and claimed that the Reds have to be ready when a loss comes (h/t Liverpool Echo):
“Not at all [thinking of an unbeaten season]. You know how tough this league is. It’s the most competitive it’s probably ever been.
“It would be great if we can, but the chances of going through a season unbeaten are very tough.
“We’ll try our best, but the chances of having a few bumps along the road is realistic. We need to be ready for that.”
The Scot added that City’s defeat was a
Robbo further added that he wasn’t looking at the league table now and would only check it during December:
“For me, I don’t look at the table until after Christmas when the league opens up and everyone sees what they’re fighting for.”
Liverpool have already tasted defeat twice
The loss in the Community Shield wasn’t a big deal given that the season didn’t start, but the Napoli trip was a bit of an eye-opener.
Liverpool weren’t bad in the game as Napoli were fortunate to win the penalty for the first goal. We responded well to the defeat and only allowed Chelsea to get in the game as tiredness kicked in.
Robertson is right in trying to play things down as we are only six games into the Premier League campaign.
