- These three teams could hand Liverpool their first loss in the Premier League this season.
After a breathtaking start to the current 2018/19 Premier League season, Liverpool will look to extend their unbeaten run in the league as long as possible. A collective unit combined with stellar individual quality helped Liverpool stay atop the Premier League without losing a single game so far in this season.

Without further ado, let us take a look at three teams who have the potential to defeat Liverpool and break their unbeaten run in the current season.
#1. Manchester City
The first team of the list will obviously be the champions Manchester City. Pep Guardiola's famous 'Centurions' are not far below Liverpool as they are just 7 points behind them. With their first fixture being against Liverpool, they will look to close the gap.
Despite a recent poor run of form from Manchester City that benefited Liverpool, they are a squad with world class players who can change the shape of a tie within moments. Mahrez's penalty miss in their first encounter in the league helped Liverpool get back from the tie on a positive note.
Manchester City are the team who has scored the most number of goals but their defense looked a bit shaky and gave away goals in the past months which is why their goal difference is below Liverpool's.
In recent times, Manchester City had faced the most trouble from Liverpool both in Champions League and Premier League. Their encounter will certainly be enticing for football fans all over the world.
