Arsenal team news ahead of clash with Liverpool

Posted November 07, 2018

The Liverpool manager said: "We play City twice".

They tend to fly out of the blocks, swamping their opponents with their pressing game, the Anfield clash with Man City being a case in point, albeit strong start wasn't rewarded with a goal on that occasion.

"It's a point, we take that, and a point at Arsenal is always a good result but we could have won".

"You need the full package, you need to be really ready and you need to cause them problems with the ball, without the ball".

"Tomorrow is a similar team because Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea are in front of us in the table, and now we want to compete against them". The Welsh midfielder star is out-of-contract at the end of the season and talks over an extension have faltered, amid speculation that the player wanted to leave. "How many 35-year-olds are there in the Premier League?". Past year a few teams played really good seasons but there was no chance to catch City because, by October-November, the gap was already that big.

"I am not happy with how we defended in the first half, that is not what I want".

"It will be a good game".

"We have spoken. It is very important to control, but I don't think he lost control".

After their loss to Manchester City and Chelsea, Arsenal, who are placed fourth, have won 12 of their 13 unbeaten games but new manager Unai Emery can not boast of taking down a side in the top six of the table from last season. But it doesn't mean it will be like that. "We are going to do the last training with the players". I can not judge week in, week out. We don't feel: 'Wow!

"We saw Leicester rip Arsenal to shreds for 30 minutes; they scored, Harry Maguire missed a sitter, they had a stonewall penalty turned down. But if they can not play we are going to play another player". It is just exciting.

The North London side, given their consistent run, are threatening the early-season title favourites. It is our job to be ready for that.

"Tactically we need to be together and impose our style and idea on the game". Henrikh Mkhitaryan got up above an uncertain Alisson to head just wide of goal from a deep cross, before Liverpool went up the other end and had the ball in the net. "It doesn't look like we will be too busy to be honest but it all depends on injuries and things like that", he added. I think this is the moment also to play the first derby against Tottenham.
