Liverpool's relentless pursuit of the Premier League title hit an unexpected bump on Saturday as they suffered a shock loss to Watford - their first of the Premier League season.

Jurgen Klopp's men were just five games away from equalling Arsenal's unbeaten run of 49 matches, and with only trips to the Emirates and Manchester City providing imposing challenges, many expected them to complete the whole season unbeaten, as Arsene Wenger's side did in 2003-04.

And Arsenal were among the first to react to their place in Premier League history remaining intact.

And many Arsenal players, both part of the Invincible season and from other eras had their say.
