Jurgen Klopp arrived at Liverpool with an impressive reputation after building Borussia Dortmund into a team capable of challenging Bayern Munich (and also beating Arsenal a couple of times!), and Arsene Wenger respects the German for that and is expecting a tough match when they meet each other in the Premier League for the first time tomorrow night.
“I think he is a great manager but we have different styles,” he said. “You have to respect that and you can only be successful by [having] your own style and personality, and everybody has a different personality.
“But I think he done very well in the job and he has an opportunity to integrate a big club. That is where people will assess that later.
“You have to play with your style and what you believe is strong. He is a great manager and he will do that.
“We know that Liverpool will be absolutely up for it, we will be up for it.
“It is down to us to be very strong in the challenges to make sure that doesn’t happen.”
Luckily Arsene had a chance to rest a lot of our first team in the Sunderland game at the weekend, so we should have our best side out and fit and fresh for the challenge from Liverpool, who have also had more than their fair share of fixture congestion lately….
Come on you Gunners! Let’s show Klopp how much harder the Premier League is compared to the Bundesliga….
