Former Arsenal star believes Liverpool will win the Premier League unbeaten.

Pires believes the quality in the Premier League at the moment is not as high as when Arsene Wenger’s Invincibles won the league.

Arsenal legend Robert Pires believes Liverpool will win the Premier League title and the Reds will go unbeaten till the end of the season.

The Merseyside club are 19 points clear at the top of the league table after winning 23 from 24 league games, drawing just one game (against rivals Manchester United).

When the former Gunners forward was asked if Jurgen Klopp’s side will go unbeaten for the rest of the campaign, the former Les Bleus star told France Football: "Yes, because they have everything going for them: the team, the results, the luck, the coach... I think there are a lot of people who will agree.

"Considering how they have been playing for some time, I can't see who would trouble them. Even Manchester City... when I look at the match against City [a 3-1 win for Liverpool at Anfield in November], there is too big a difference.

"It's how they all defend. They play in a 4-3-3 and as soon as they lose the ball, especially in the middle, they are strong, physical.

"I thought they would have a little drop in speed because they don't stop playing and they keep travelling. After Boxing Day, I thought they would fall apart anyway, and no the guys are still there physically.

"Today, technically the Premier League has dipped a little. It's a bit of an observation people make here. When you see the squads of Manchester United, Chelsea, Tottenham or Arsenal, it's not as strong as it was a few years ago. The only ones who can trouble them are Manchester City.

"They will be champions by going unbeaten, but they can also beat our record. Everything has changed today. People will compare, but I think it was much, much harder in our time.

"As I said before, technically, many teams, particularly the big ones, have gone down a notch. There were no cameras, no VAR. When the guys wanted to get stuck in...

"And, above all, when you played away. I remember the matches at Leeds [United], Blackburn [Rovers], Bolton [Wanderers]... you had to get used to them."

Liverpool - the Champions League holders - haven’t lost a league match in over 12 months and they look set to win their first title in 30 years.
