Paul Merson Says: No chance Liverpool go through the Premier League season unbeaten

Paul Merson says Liverpool have no possibility of moving through the Premier League season despite their excellent start to the season – and ponders whether Mauricio Pochettino has obtained Tottenham as far as he will…
Liverpool will not go unbeaten, not a chance. Exactly what Arsenal did all those years ago, thats some going. What Liverpool are doing, winning each of these games on the trot, though, is ridiculous.
They were another day. After Leicester obtained to 1-1, they seemed even though Liverpool did not deserve to lose. For 70-odd moments they were the better team, but they kept on going and you need to get some breaks.
No-one is going to look back on October 5 and also recall the penalty, but that spot-kick couldve been a massive, gigantic goal.
Everyone forgets about what happens in October and November when you win league titles. Everybody only thinks about what occurred in April or May, but the penalty could be enormous in the circumstance of the title race.
Liverpool are now one win away from equalling the record. As they bid to enhance Manchester Citys 2017 record, theyve got Manchester United at Old Trafford and also Tottenham at Anfield in the next two games.
These were their toughest two matches After the fixtures came out. Now, they are their simplest two matches on paper. But you know Manchester United. This is their cup final and surely, they cant be that bad again, is it?
United will be under pressure but will Liverpool. You must make certain that you keep up on winning Whenever youre up at the top.
At the beginning of the season you are most likely looking at this game and believing a point at United is a result that is good. You dont know how awful United are likely to be and you have a small plan across the way as to what points you expect for you. Liverpool are today. Theyve got points in which they probably thought they werent going to get them so a draw will be okay for Liverpool in this game.
If the side of Jurgen Klopp took four things I believe Manchester City would be in significant trouble.
What Liverpool are doing now, its more than striking. They could have easily rested on their laurels because Champions League winners. They did nothing wrong in the match, but the other group proceeded to win 14 games and they ended up being just pipped at the post.
They couldve easily felt sorry for themselves, but they didnt. Theyve come back and been outstanding.
There is a gulf in class in this league and once in a blue skies bottom will conquer top, but to do everything theyve completed a week in, week out and winning football games is extraordinary.
They are not currently drawing on soccer matches. Theyre winning and its not like 30-odd players are being used by them. They have got points in the bank, although I think if Sadio Mane Mohamed Salah or Virgil van Dijk got hurt they could struggle.
Ive mentioned that this side isnt getting beat by any side in the bottom half and also Manchester City have now been defeated by two teams at the half already. Theycan manage a slip there or here andve got the points. Liverpool could be beaten by manchester City and it would not make a difference. Its all in their hands today.
There is still a very long way to go though.
Youve only got to really have a bad day at work and it can all unravel. I did it was hammering by the game on Saturday and also Liverpool. They had been the better team and were comfy, but in regards to 1-1 the left breaks down and if there is a final pass Leicester get in and may lead 2-1. It is a game that is different then.
Were taking a look at a different weekend afterward and I dont believe the pressure would have been on Manchester City as much as it had been. Their sport becomes somewhat different.
There are 30 games to go. Its still a long way and it requires a couple of decisions there or here to change everything. There are 90 points available and thats still a lot of points to play .
I say its all the time, you may be the very best director in the world but in case you have not got the players it does not make any difference. Pep Guardiola, who is playing with Fernandinho at centre-back alongside Nicolas Otamendi, has not obtained the players.
Fernandinho will get found out eventually. For them to not go and purchase a person when they own a nation is a complete joke. They ought to have three or even four players in each position.
I really dont want to say its Liverpools title to throw away because theres quite a way to go. No-one has won the league but its going to be tough for anyone to catch them if they continue doing what they are currently doing.
The players needed the name snatched from them. Afterwards Man City won 14 football matches it was removed from them and one was stuck by Vincent Kompany in the upper corner from 30 yards. Liverpool understand things can occur. This Manchester City team could get on a roll and roll away 10 so there is a long, long way to go.
Times for Tottenhams stressing.
Since when they lost 7-2, I didnt really see an awful lot wrong with that, I was for them the other day. I thought they got a lot of terrible criticism for no reason since that game couldve gone either way.
Spurs had opportunities in the first half and they couldve been three or four up at half-time. In the match they were still at 4-2, however a five minutes actually cost them. Because I thought it wasnt as bad as everyone made out, I supported them.
But what happened on Saturday was an absolute joke. It turned out to be a worrying joke.
In soccer terms, ignored away by Brighton and to get thrown was a tragedy. It was worrying as it gets on the football field.
People said to me that Pochettino appeared somewhat calm. Since the match was saw by him, he was composed and it wasnt as bad as what it seemed. Simply take the few minutes off and it is 4-2. Youd sit back and think that the wonderful game it was and that it couldve gone either way. However, the game against Brighton was a joke.
They should be embarrassed. I think the last time Brighton scored three goals in a game I had been at college!
Its worrying times for Pochettino.
As a supervisor you get to particular phases in your career and you may just take a team as much as they can be taken by you. You can not take them. I am unsure whats happening at Tottenham.
There are styles of losing football games which wasnt a fantastic way to shed. If I was the boss, I had sitting on Sunday afternoon thinking,Are the players with me? . You seem the day when they went to Swansea.
They busted a gut and obtained a consequence, although they had been bottom of their league and couldnt win a match for toffee. I look at this and I believe that these players are with the supervisor. They will operate through a brick wall for him and are not mugging off that manager.
But when I look at the Tottenham team getting brushed aside, and that I mean brushed apart, by Brighton, you would have to ask questions.
