Thierry Henry Thinks Liverpool Will Become 'Invincibles' This Season
Thierry Henry believes Liverpool could go unbeaten this season and become the second 'Invincible' side in Premier League history.
Henry was a part of the legendary Arsenal side that went the whole 2003/2004 season unbeaten, in an undefeated streak that ended up lasting 49 league games.
And the Frenchman thinks Jurgen Klopp's side can emulate that feat this year.

Speaking on Amazon Prime Video ahead of Liverpool's game with Leicester City, the 42-year-old 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."
The result was never in doubt as the league leaders ripped second placed Leicester apart at the King Power Stadium and won 4-0.
Following the game, Henry was then asked if the title race was over and he replied: "For me, yes.
"It was always going to be a matter of when, they are unstoppable. What they are doing is frightening.
"Jurgen Klopp is never going to admit that but this team are on a mission. They're not going to stop after tonight."
He went on to praise their performance on an evening which saw Trent Alexander-Arnold run the show.
"They will only party after the last game. It could have been 4-0 at half-time. He will say it's not done and they need to keep on going but what they are doing is not normal.
"I'm not a Liverpool fan but I like to see a team play like that. They create, they fight."
Their last Premier League defeat came 358 days ago when they lost to Manchester City.
