Emerys Arsenal face acid test against Liverpool

Shaqiri Cardiff Klopp’s transfers could tilt the title Liverpool’s way this season, says Smicer

Given that Lovren is often prone to a defensive lapse, many Liverpool FC supporters will be hoping Klopp will revert back to Gomez and Van Dijk at centre-half for the trip to Arsenal this weekend.

The Reds were forced to settle for a point at the Emirates after Alexandre Lacazette cancelled out James Milner's opener in the Premier League clash.

For that reason, Klopp believes Liverpool must not have a singular focus on the reigning champions.

Former Liverpool midfielder Nigel Spackman has insisted that Arsenal are not Premier League title contenders despite their recent run of form.

The maximum we can lose against them is three points in each of these games, even though I understand why it sometimes feels like six. "Now, for us, it's a good, big example of how you can improve also in your way".

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

"I want to do quickly our best performance but I know we need one process", he added.

However, the scorelines, especially the Cardiff one, are slightly flattering as there were periods in the game last weekend that showed that despite the results, this Liverpool attack is not yet functioning like it was doing last season.

It seems most likely that he'll stay in the Premier League and with Liverpool being ruled out of the running by Sky, Manchester United have cropped up as a potential destination for the 27-year-old. However, Liverpool generally find it hard at the Emirates Stadium, as they have won only twice in the league at the Emirates stadium in last 18 years. "The result is not important, but our desire to give our best to honour our chairman, that is the most important thing", Puel said.

"It's pleasing we are creating those chances, but we could have been a bit more ruthless and maybe not put as much pressure on ourselves not to concede to win the game".

Every Arsenal fan sees Saturday's game against Liverpool as a marker - yes, the Gunners have made a great start under Unai Emery, but now we will find out how good they really are. But it doesn't mean it will be like that. I can not judge week in, week out. My heart says yes, but I am looking forward to finding out. We didn't have that in the first half, but when we played we were immediately unsafe.

But Arsenal rallied and deservedly secured themselves a 1-1 draw as Lacazette wriggled free inside the box before curling home with eight minutes remaining. It is just exciting. Liverpool, second in the table after 10 rounds and with a firepower strong enough to dismantle any football fortress in the continent, will not only try to end the Gunners' unbeaten run of 13 games but also demoralise one of the traditional forces in England.
