Arsenal Twitter Breathes a Sigh of Relief at Liverpool Loss as Invincibles’ Record Remains Intact

​And breathe, Gooners. 

Teams have come close to matching the incredible achievements of that Arsenal side of 2003/04, but no other group of players has ever been able to play 38 league matches in a season without losing at least one of them.

But talk of the mighty Invincibles resurfaced this year, as Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool bulldozed a whole series of records on their way to becoming the soon-to-be champions. And there was one accolade they were very, very close to cracking. 

It seemed written in the stars that your beloved Invincibles would be remembered as ‘the first top-flight team to go unbeaten in the Premier League era – but not the best’.

But Watford said ‘No’.

The Hornets spanked ​Liverpool 3-0, and in doing so, ended their 44-game unbeaten run. Weirdly, it’s probably the best thing that will happen to Arsenal all season…

And of course, three cheers for the team who made this all possible – since ​Arsenal would never be able to beat this Liverpool team themselves in a million years. 


​​Small victories, Gooners. Take what you can get, eh?
