Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes it will be difficult for the Reds to equal Arsenal’s 49-game unbeaten record in the Premier League.
The Reds are currently on course to win their first league title in 30 years, after a blistering start to the 2019-20 campaign.
Klopp has seen his side win 17 of their first 18 fixtures to move 13 points clear of their rivals at the top of the table, with reigning champions Manchester City lying a point further back in third.
A 4-0 win over second-place Leicester at the King Power Stadium saw Liverpool tighten their grip on first, while also extending their unbeaten run to 35 matches.
It has been suggested that Liverpool could not only win the Premier League crown, but also finish the season unbeaten and move above Arsenal’s 2003-04 invincibles in English football’s record books.
“It is a massive deal. I’m a while in this business, and if you’d ask me if this was possible… I don’t think so,”Klopp told reporters.
“I think at Dortmund we had 28 games, and that felt absolutely exceptional, but only in the review. When you’re in the situation it’s different.
“I’ve been asked if I see a swagger in the boys when they step on the pitch, but unfortunately, I can’t see anything like this because I am completely concerned about all things in the game.
“I’m a very optimistic person but not before a football game. I know we can win it but I’ve never thought in my life that we probably will win it. That makes life really uncomfortable sometimes.
“These numbers, I forget them now. If you tell me next time then I’ll be surprised the number is that high.”
