Video: Arteta claims Liverpool result is priority over EL

Mikel Arteta refused claims that Arsenal’s Europa League clash next Thursday would take priority over a result against Liverpool.

You can be forgiven for believing that the Gunners best chance of European football is via winning the Europa League, having fallen to ninth in the Premier League table.

Winning the EL will be no easy task either with seven other teams also hoping to lift the trophy, but it is way too early to be putting all your eggs in one basket, and I would have been disappointed with Arteta if he wasn’t giving our team the best shot of beating Liverpool.

Will the Spaniard name a team with Slavia Prague in mind despite his comments?

    The next game, whatever the competition, is the most important.

    I can only hope this is just lip service, especially after the backlash he faced following the FA Cup lineup selection miscues against Southampton…that said, anyone with an intelligent bone in their body knows that the EL game is considerably more important…of course, let’s hope for the best case scenario and win both

    I think every game is important

    Whilst the best guess is we have more chance of European football by winning the EL, a good performance and result against Liverpool can only improve confidence for future games. This just may begin a good run in the league and give Arsenal a chance on two fronts.
