Liverpool Arsenal 5-1

Unai Emery has explained how Arsenal will approach their Premier League match against Liverpool on Saturday evening.

When the Gunners visited Anfield in the league last year they were torn apart as the home side won 5-1 thanks to a Roberto Firmino hat-trick and further strikes from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, despite Arsenal taking an early lead.

Emery is keen to avoid a similar result this time around and travel to Liverpool ready to “show” their best.

“Each season is different,” Emery told reporters. “We can use last year two, three, four years ago. Anfield is a big atmosphere, they are a very good team, they have an advantage over us for their progress and in their moments in last years.

“They have one step more feeling strong. But it’s not for us, it’s for all. We need to take our best performance, to go there with good feeling thinking we can achieve that individual and collective performance.

“We are looking to go there and show that.”

When asked what we learn about his side this weekend, Emery responded: “We are in a very good position but we’ve only played two matches in the Premier League.

“To be in this moment with the possibility to go top is amazing and a very big opportunity. We know it’s at the beginning but we can be positive and optimistic, wishing to play and show our moment against them but knowing it is going to be difficult.

“It’s a very big challenge and a very big opportunity for us to do something.”
