Scolari warns Liverpool that Chelsea are the new Invincibles

London, Oct 25 : Phil Scolari stoked up the pressure on Liverpool ahead of Saturday's clash, claiming his Chelsea players are good enough to emulate Arsenal's "Invincibles" team of five years ago.

Scolari urged his players to land a pyschological blow on the only other unbeaten team in the Premier League during the top of the table showdown at Stamford Bridge.

"It's possible to go unbeaten. We have potential to be the perfect team. I've seen in this team passion and professionalism," The Sun quoted Scolari, as saying.

He said the match is the coming together of a new order in England. "This is the clash of the Invincibles."

Scolari added: "Liverpool are dangerous because they have a good team and good players and they have not lost a game this season. Sometimes they are in bad condition in the last five minutes but they still get a result. And that is because they play as a team. That is what I want as a team and what my team give to me."

Arsene Wenger's Gunners were dubbed the "Invincibles" after becoming the first team since Preston in 1888-9 to go through the season without losing.

Chelsea is unbeaten in eight matches so far - but so is Liverpool.
