“Winning the Premier League is more important than being invincible” – Arsenal legend Ray Parlor’s message to disgusted Liverpool fans

[ad_1]

Arsenal Invincible Ray Parlor offered a few words of comfort to all the Liverpool fans left speechless by their defeat at Watford – “Being unbeaten doesn’t matter”.

And a Reds supporter told talkSPORT that he wasn’t so upset about the game anyway, and even said he was HAPPY that they lost to the Hornets.

Jurgen Klopp’s team suffered their first Premier League defeat of the season on Saturday when they were beaten 3-0 at Vicarage Road.

The surprise result ended fans’ hopes of becoming the Invincibles’ last team and even overshadowing the Gunners’ success when they were crowned champions with 26 wins and 12 draws in 2003/04.

Liverpool already have 26 wins, so had a chance not only to end the undefeated campaign, but also to beat Arsenal’s legendary achievement, to fall on an unlikely obstacle against a team battling relegation.

They always fly high at the top of the table and with only 12 points necessary to be confirmed champions, they will almost certainly raise their first Premier League trophy, only theirs will not be golden.

But Parlor said to Liverpool that trophies matter, not records, and said their loss to Watford was “not serious”, even if, like Gary Neville, he may have toasted with a few beers …

When asked if he was very satisfied with Liverpool’s defeat, he told Sports Breakfast host Laura Woods: “Sure! I had a few drinks that night, yeah!

“The records are there to be broken and I’m sure if a Liverpool player was in the same place as me, he would also want us to lose!

“But it doesn’t matter, really.

“I know it’s a very good record to have and I’m very proud of it, but the most important thing is to win the league and Liverpool will always do it.

“At the start of the season it’s about winning the title, not being unbeaten – it’s a bonus if that happens.

“I know that Arsene Wenger said with our team that we could become unbeaten, but at the start of the season, all that interested Jurgen Klopp was to win the Premier League, which seems to be no problem, so the season was impressive anyway.

“Now it’s about being able to add the FA Cup, can they add the Champions League?

“They still have an opportunity in the second leg against Atletico Madrid, and it’s going to be difficult because they are a good team, they are well organized and hard to break down, but you still want Liverpool at Anfield.

“So there is still a lot to play for.”

Liverpool fans explain why it is GLAD His team’s undefeated run has been stopped by Watford

Meanwhile, a Liverpool fan called TalkSPORT to say he was GLAD, his team lost their unbeaten record against the Hornets.

Sports Bar hosts Jason Cundy and Adam Catterall couldn’t believe what he was saying, but Kopite explained why he thought defeating would be good for Klopp’s team.

“I’m a little disgusted, we were beaten but, in a way, I’m glad we lost,” said Will the Red.

“We haven’t played well since the winter break and it was going to happen, we were going to lose a game.

“I’m glad we’ve lost it now because I think the team needed to focus for Atletico Madrid.

“I think the players were starting to believe in their own press, that they were invincible and that they did not have to run.

“If we continued to play the same way, we would be overthrown by Atletico. So, in a way and in the long run, I think it will do us good. “
