Liverpool slip-up sees Arsenal keep record arguably cooler than ‘Invincibles’

Liverpool's slip-up on Tuesday will see Arsenal keep hold of a record that is arguably cooler than their unbeaten 'Invincibles' season.

The Reds were beaten 1-0 away to a depleted Leicester City, with substitute Ademola Lookman's second half goal the difference between the two sides.

The defeat was their second in the league this season and the first time since March that they have failed to score in a Premier League match, dating back to a loss to Fulham.

Jurgen Klopp's side had previously scored in each of their last 28 league matches before being shut out by the Foxes.

In addition to ending that run, Liverpool are also now unable to equal a record set by Arsenal during the 2001/02 season.

This was pointed out by Opta analyst Duncan Alexander following the match, as he tweeted: “Liverpool not scoring vs Leicester means Arsenal 2001/02 remain the only team in PL history to score in every single game in an entire season.

"For me, remains cooler than not losing in 2003/04.”

The Gunners won their second league title under Arsene Wenger in 2001/02 as they went on a 21-match unbeaten run and won a then-record 13 consecutive matches to end the season.

They also went the entire season without losing a single away match in the league.

Arsenal's fine run of form continued into the new season as they won a 14th match before extending the unbeaten run to 30 matches.

A season later in 2003/04, they went the entire season unbeaten to become the only side in the Premier League era to go a full campaign without losing a single match.

Liverpool's defeat to Leicester leaves Klopp's men six points adrift of Manchester City, who could extend the gap to nine points against Brentford on Wednesday night.
