Just out of curiosity, I had a look back at the 03/04 and the 04/05 final league table and in particular at the Arsenal points haul.
That is widely considered to be one of the greatest Arsenal sides and perhaps one of the greatest English sides of all time.
Arsenal finished the 03/04 season with 90 points and the following year ended up on 83 points.
• 76 games
• 51 wins
• 20 draws
• 5 defeats
• A grand total of 173 points.
If we compare that to Liverpool last season and the 22 games we’ve played this year, that works out at:
• 60 games
• 51 wins
• 8 draws
• 1 defeat
• A grand total of 161 points
Liverpool bettered Arsenals Invincible points tally albeit falling short in the title race and have matched Arsenals matches won over 2 seasons with 16 games of the season left to play.
I don’t think it’s a contentious point to say that this Liverpool side is better than the Arsenal Invincibles side and is performing with a higher win rate and over a longer period of time.
We’ve picked up 91 out of the last 93 points available. I don’t think we’ve seen a points return like that in English football.
People might say we didn’t win the title last season but I’d counter that by saying both City and Liverpool were better than Arsenal 03/04 side.
Liverpool may have lost a match back in January 2019 but let’s be honest, this team is probably more Invincible than the so called Invincibles.
Good Night lads
Pretty Invincible Already
