Arsene Wenger believes Liverpool can beat Arsenal’s record for the most league matches unbeaten.
The Gunners famously went 49 games unbeaten between 2003 and 2004 while Wenger was in charge, which included their Invincibles Premier League title win.
Liverpool have a chance of beating that record as Jurgen Klopp’s side have an impressive run of 43 games without losing.
This season, the Reds have won 25 and drawn one of their 26 matches and are 22 points clear at the top of the table.
If they go the whole season unbeaten – like Arsenal did in the 2003-04 campaign – they will comfortably surpass that record.
“They are doing exceptionally well,” Wenger told Sporf.
“They put a team together that is very efficient, very consistent and has good fighting qualities as well, so let’s see.
“The records are there to be beaten and they can do it.”
Asked whether he would be sad to see Klopp take his record, Wenger replied: “He has to fight for himself and I would completely understand that.”

Invincibles goalkeeper Jens Lehmann thinks Liverpool have been a bit lucky to still be unbeaten this season.
He said: “If they do it we will congratulate, but we will see. Liverpool has done, I think, lucky spells already, but it’s probably because they worked harder than the other ones.
“If they keep going they deserve it, but it’s a long way.”
