Thierry Henry believes Liverpool can go unbeaten in the Premier League this season, to become only the second 'Invincible' team in English history.
The first side to do that, of course, was Arsenal. Henry was one of the stars of their squad, so he knows exactly what it takes to achieve the famous feat.
Speaking ahead of Liverpool's match with Leicester, the Frenchman said:
"It's for me a statement tonight. If they come here and win it, and win it well, it will be a matter of when, not if, they are going to win it [the Premier League].
"I think they're going to win it. And I'm going to push it further, not because we've done it with Arsenal but because it's a matter for me if they're going to stay unbeaten.

"I think that team can stay unbeaten, and it will be who's going to beat them first, because I think they will win the league. It's not a big statement because they're above everybody this year."
GIVEMESPORT's Ollie Browning says:
Well, Jurgen Klopp's side certainly sent a message with their win on Boxing Day and can certainly become the new Invincibles this season.
Liverpool brushed Leicester aside 4-0 and overcame what many said was going to be their toughest test with ease.
As Henry suggests, it's now case of if the Reds will be beaten, not if they're going to win the league.
The Boxing Day win puts them 13 points clear at the top of the table, with a game in hand.
It's almost impossible to see anyone taking three points off Klopp's team in this form, let alone making up the 13 points needed to catch them.
Yep, it seems almost certain that it's Liverpool's year and a title win would be even sweeter for their supporters if it comes off the back of an Invincible season.News Now - Sport News
