And here came the day when Liverpool lost. Jurgen Klopp’s team was unbeaten and targeting to break the Arsenal record. But finally, they failed against Watford, and the record of ‘untouchables’ remain untouched.
Ismaila Sarr and Troy Deeney wanted to stop Merseyside, and Elton John’s Watford beat the Beatles’ Liverpool.
Happy Gary Neville trolled Liverpool in the social network and opened a champaign.
Before the defeat against Watford (0: 3), Liverpool had not lost 44 Premier League games, 27 of which were held this season. He also had all wins in the last 18 rounds, which is the best result in terms of consecutive wins.
The unbeaten record belongs to London Arsenal and has 49 matches. Naturally, this includes the 2003/2004 season championship, and therefore Arsene Wenger’s “untouchables” remain untouched. Liverpool will move to second place for their 44 undefeated games.
- Since November 2015, the Premier League leader have never lost against anyone with such a big difference. Manchester City then lost against Liverpool – 1: 4.
- Since November 1985, the team in the exit zone have never beaten a PL leader – then Manchester beat Leicester 0: 3.
- After the March 2019 (36) match, when Liverpool played 0: 0 against Everton, the Merseyside side played the first no-goal match in the English League (the Klopp’s team struck only once).
Van Dijk after the first loss: ‘We’ve never talked about the records’
Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk estimated their lost match against Watford (0: 3). As you already know, this was the first defeat for the club in the Premier League this season.
“First, I will praise Watford. They deserved to win. The team followed their plan. Watford have scored three goals, and I don’t think they have created many moments. We must continue to develop.
We had to play better. If you look at the whole season, we play well in defense. We have kept the door dry most of all in PL.
Losing 0: 3 is unacceptable. Failure is painful. The records are for the media only. We’ve never talked about it.
We want to win at the English Cup first and then against Bournemouth,” Van Dijk said in an interview with Sky Sports.
