If you read all the comments on JustArsenal lately, including our own tipster Dan Smith, you would see that very few of our fans believe that Arsenal have very little chance of getting anything out of our game at Anfield this evening.
Obviously I was a little more positive in my Liverpool v Arsenal Preview but if there is one person who does think that the Gunners can cause the Reds problems it is the Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp! He told the official club website: “Unai is one of Europe’s top coaching talents and it is zero surprise to anyone who knows his quality that he has imposed himself so quickly on the club. The team already plays in a manner that reflects what he looks for: organised and adventurous, with quick, clever and skilful players all over the pitch.
“This is a team that can and will punish you if you drop even 0.01 per cent of your focus. Our game against them in London was exhausting to watch because of the pace of it and the intensity. They have proved they can strike back in big matches when they fall behind and they have proved they can dominate an opponent also.
“I know a number of their players, some better than others, and I know they are winners. Arsenal has it all and I know they have big belief in what they are doing and what they achieve themselves this season.”
We all know how well we played that day at the Emirates when we came back to draw with Liverpool, but more importantly Jurgen Klopp and the Liverpool players know it, and they will be aware that we can perform when we are in the mood. We raised our game that day, and hopefully we will do the same today!
Come on you Gunners! We can do this! Let us give out positive vibes to the players and cheer them to victory.
