Former Red Danny Murphy believes Liverpool won’t finish the 2019-20 Premier League season unbeaten.

The Reds defeated Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 away from home on the weekend thanks to Roberto Firmino’s first-half strike. Liverpool possess a 14-point lead at the top of the table with a game in hand.

Liverpool’s lead at the top of the table is the result of only dropping points in one fixture so far this season, which was the 1-1 draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford back in October.

Despite Liverpool’s efforts thus far, Murphy does see his former club losing a game.

“Personally, I don’t think they will go unbeaten,” Murphy told the Daily Mail.

“You only need one off-night and the record is done. But it won’t matter if they still end up as champions. And the way Klopp is going he might win the league early and be in the latter stages of the Champions League, and have the ability to rest players. What a wonderful position that would be.”

It is very difficult to remain unbeaten, and it would hardly be the end of the world if Liverpool did lose a match.

The only thing that matters is that Liverpool secure a maiden Premier League title come the end of the season.

However, the way Liverpool are tracking, they could go the season unbeaten, but a lot would have to go right. The club will have the knockout stages of the Champions League to deal with.

Liverpool’s next Premier League clash is against Manchester United at Anfield.
