Arsenal are on a fantastic run of 13 games unbeaten since our opening defeats to Man City and Chelsea, but Liverpool have an even better record in the League, with 8 wins and two draws (against Man City and Chelsea) so far and are certain to be formidable opponents.
The Reds keeper Alisson Becker believes that Liverpool have to beat Arsenal to prove that they have the credentials to go on and win the Premier League title this season. He said: “It’s definitely going to be a great game and we shouldn’t fear anybody,”
“We’re confident in our quality. We appreciate the quality of the opposition but we can’t show any fear on the pitch, we need to be brave, we need to do our best to play our best football and play the way Klopp wants us to on the pitch. It’ll definitely be a great contest.
“A team with intentions of winning the Premier League needs to be winning this type of game so we’re going there with victory in mind, while keeping our feet on the ground and knowing we’ll need to give sweat, blood and tears to win the game.”
So, conversely the same thing is true for Arsenal, if we want to be taken seriously as contenders for the title, then we should be beating the big teams like Liverpool at home. This is certainly going to be a big test, and if we take a win today then we will be just one point behind our opponents and definitely in the title race. I am sure Emery will have his team tactically and mentally fired up to do the business. COYG!
Onwards and Upwards!
