Liverpool fc news: Arsenal legend opens up and leaves Reds fans smiling and Gunners fuming
Emmanuel Petit has claimed this Liverpool side are more impressive than the Arsenal ‘invincables’
Liverpool have been brilliant in the Premier League this season and are a massive 25 points clear at the top having lost just one top-flight game this season, which came in the shock defeat to relegation battlers Watford.
Many believed that Liverpool could have went on and echoed the famous unbeaten season that Arsenal managed 16 years ago, but that is no longer the case and there has been some debate on whether or not this Liverpool side is still better than that Arsenal.
And Petit, who played 116 times for Arsenal, lifting the title and the FA Cup in 1998, claims that Klopp’s team is more impressive than the Gunners side, telling the SKY SPORTS WEBSITE: “I have huge respect for my old team-mates, but when I look at Liverpool, and what they have been doing for the past two years…”
“I have huge respect for my old team-mates, but when I look at Liverpool, and what they have been doing for the past two years…”
“It’s amazing what they are doing – it is rare to see a team winning so many games and being so dominant against their opponents all the time.
“They were both great teams in history, but for me this Liverpool team have something special. It is hard to explain what I feel when I look at Liverpool, but I don’t remember thinking the same way when I was looking at the ‘Invincibles.’
“They have impressed me more than Arsenal’s ‘Invincibles.’ I am pretty sure Arsenal fans won’t be happy with that. But I have to be honest. When I look at this team, the motivation, the intensity, so many talented players. Something is different with them.”
Liverpool have still not won that title yet as the season has been stopped, but they fully deserve all the plaudits they have been getting this year because they have been brilliant.
