This season's Liverpool side are more impressive than the Gunners ‘Invincibles’, according to former Les Bleus star.


Former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Petit is convinced Jurgen Klopp’s current side are better than Arsenal’s Invincibles.


Liverpool were two wins away from lifting their first ever Premier League title before the 2019-20 campaign was brought to a halt due to the COVID-19 chaos.


Arsene Wenger's Arsenal went an entire Premier League season unbeaten in 2004, but drew 12 games as they went on to win the title.

The Merseyside club were close to emulating the achievement of the great Arsenal side of 2003/04 by going the entire season unbeaten, but a 3-0 loss against Watford at Vicarage Road on the 29th February meant the Reds’ run of victories was brought to a shuddering halt.


However, Petit, who spent three years at the north London club before signing for LaLiga giants Barcelona, believes that Klopp’s current stars 'have something special'.


"It's amazing what they (Liverpool) are doing - it is rare to see a team winning so many games and being so dominant against their opponents all the time,” the Frenchman told the Mirror.

"They were both great teams in history, but for me this Liverpool team have something special.


“It is hard to explain what I feel when I look at Liverpool, but I don't remember thinking the same way when I was looking at the Invincibiles. They have impressed me more than Arsenal's Invincibles.


"I am pretty sure Arsenal fans won't be happy with that. But I have to be honest. When I look at this team, the motivation, the intensity, so many talented players. Something is different with them."
