Emery claims Liverpool can emulate ‘Invisible’ Arsenal title side
FOOTBALL-Nairobi, Kenya 27 December 19:31 GMT
Arsenal head coach Unai Emery believes Liverpool can match Arsene Wenger’s ‘Invincibles’ going unbeaten until the end of the season with both sides set to clash on Saturday with Klopp’s team six points ahead of Tottenham.
Emery who has been charged by the FA after kicking a water bottle that hit a spectator but was quick to apologise to the fan immediately after the incident and has until Monday to respond to the charges will be available for the game said:
“At the moment they are doing it and they can do it,” Emery replied when asked if Klopp’s side could go the Premier League campaign unbeaten as quoted by ITV.COM
“They can do that because they are doing it at the moment. We played against Liverpool three years ago with Sevilla in the final of the Europa League and I look at this progress and they are a very good example.
“The progression with Liverpool is clear. Three years ago, they were out of the Champions League through the Premier League and through the Europa League, because they lost against us (Sevilla).
“This progress is also one example for us, now, in our moment. But we need to be very, very demanding of ourselves to do this step quickly in our way. But we need also time and sometimes the patience is very important for us.”
