Liverpool is a fantastic team but they are not unbeatable and while it may be a tall order to come away from Anfield with all three points next Saturday, it is not impossible.
Unai Emery is a top-class professional coach and will always know better than the likes of me and no doubt he and his team will be plotting ways to neuter the Reds.
But some things are fairly obvious even to us armchair fans with delusions of grandeur and if Arsenal is to beat Liverpool then there are some things they simply must do to give themselves a chance.
Stop Liverpool on the flanks
Probably a bit of a no brainer this one but if Andrew Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold are not stopped they will cause absolute havoc as they did all last season. Nacho Monreal and Ainsley Maitland-Niles will have to stand toe to toe with those two and not give an inch.
Play Liverpool at their own game
One way of stopping Robertson and Alexander-Arnold is to force them to defend, Monreal and Maitland-Niles with Pepe and probably Aubamayang in front of them have the capability to dominate down the flanks and the more they go at Liverpool out wide the less potential there is for the Reds to control the flanks.
Pressure van Dijk with pace
Virgil van Dijk is a world-class defender, one of the best in fact but he will not be able to cope with the pace of Aubameyang and Pepe if it comes to a battle of speed. Long balls, high balls and battling at close quarters will always give van Dijk the advantage but get a little space and run at him and the Arsenal forwards will get the upper hand, it really is as simple as that.
Midfield cannot be lost
Liverpool do not possess the best midfielders in the world but what they do have is players that put in efficient consistent performances and you can take it to the bank that the likes of Milner, Wijnaldum and Henderson or whoever they play in the centre of the park will put in performances that are a seven or eight and our midfielders must do the same, Torreira, Guendouzi, Ceballos, whoever Emery picks must be just as efficient and consistent if Arsenal are to have any chance of winning the game.
The defence cannot afford any mistakes
When you have Mane, Salah and Firmino coming at you and you make a mistake then it is all over, they will pounce and take advantage, it is what they have been doing for the last 12 months and Luiz, Sokratis and co have to be on top of their game, they cannot give those guys an inch, in fact, not even a millimetre, they are absolutely fearsome and prey on weakness and mistakes.
Get the ball to the forwards as quickly as possible
Mane, Salah and Firmino may be world-class and brilliant but in Pepe, Aubameyang and Lacazette Arsenal can match them but for them to be effective they have to see a lot of the ball and quickly. The Arsenal front three have the capability to cause chaos and if Arsenal is to come away from Anfield with all three points then it is the front three that will probably be the ones to deliver that win.
