Opinion: Klopp’s recent comments show how far Arsenal have come under Arteta

Arsenal will take on Liverpool in the Premier League on Monday evening and it will be another cracking game.

The Gunners will head to that game with a recent superior head to head over the Reds for the first time in a long time.

They have beaten Liverpool the last two times, and both times have been under the management of Mikel Arteta.

The Spaniard visited Anfield as the assistant manager of Manchester City, but this will be his first visit as the manager of Arsenal.

Ahead of the game, both managers have been speaking and Arteta has admitted that Anfield is a tough place for any team to visit.

Speaking ahead of the match as cited by the Mail, Klopp claimed that his team were “unlucky” and “helped” in the last two times that both teams have met.

He also claimed that his side helped the Gunners in the 2-1 win at the Emirates and they were unlucky in their Community Shield defeat.

These comments show just how far we have come as a team for the best team in England to feel unlucky against us or that we punished their mistakes.

Klopp claims that his team has a chance against us next week, that is interesting and I interpret that to mean that he knows we can also beat them.

      1. Haha he’s 35 Sue but some people thought Chelsea are getting a young world class defender 😂😂 JR said he’ll be a quality signing for Chelsea after the west Brom game.. if that was he would have said over the hill and Arsenal’s defence is a mess.. nothing but excuses for Chelsea and Werner better than Auba ? I think Chelsea fans getting carried away the premier League is a different level to Germany

  1. Don’t have a problem even if we lose against Liverpool,its a marathon and not sprint,we have showed we can beat them and the fact that klop admits we are tough to beat is enough for now.

  2. Come Monday Arsenal might defy the odds and get a win against Liverpool.
    A draw at Anfield will be a good result for us.

    Chelsea getting destroyed by West Brom!!!! 😂😂😂

  3. Us beating Liverpool on Monday would make this an awesome week of football for me….. can you imagine Chelsea being whooped for all their spending?! 😂😂

  4. I know Klopp is trying to be professional as a manager but I’m pretty sure even he hopes
    -Ox provides a masterclass tomorrow against us, after that
    -Walcott & Iwobi score against us for the blue half of Merseyside
    -Bartley & Ajayi puts our CBs to shame when West Brom play us

    Even Isaac Hayden might have a point to prove.

  5. I believe Jurgen Klopp is sincere in his comments. He is not taking the game against Arsenal for granted. The truth is we have beaten them twice in the recent past and yet previously we had never won any game against Klopp. He is in a kind of uncertainty about what to expect from us. We are no longer the pushovers we used to be. Another bit of puzzle about Arteta is that nobody as yet knows his team ethic as he is still a new manager. Thus Klopp can’t figure out exactly how to handle him. This unpredictability is what has made Arsenal tricky to play against lately. Arteta’s guile has left many opponents confused. Besides Arteta has defied conventional wisdom by not sticking with the same players. He selects his teams according to performance in training and gives every player equal opportunity to prove themselves. This has put all players on notice that it is your performance and not your name or reputation that will afford you game time. This is completely different from the past where some players would start games even when they had been persistently poor in previous games! Also, Arteta’s body language tells it all. He looks calm, composed and relaxed on the touchline. At this rate we should expect more to come from Arsenal.

    1. Liverpool are a far better “team” than us and have proved it. We can at least go there with a modicum of hope now. That hasn’t been the case before. I dont expect us to get overrun but i do expect them to have by far most of the ball. Our weak link is midfield and that will be where we struggle. Our strength is we are more together and that gives us hope.

  6. Would be great if we beat them at their own turf! Isn’t it an amazing feeling? Going into a big game knowing you actually stand more than a snowball’s chance in hell?
