  • Arsenal Vs Liverpool Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

After starting poorly with defeats against Manchester City and Chelsea in the league, the Gunners are undefeated in 13 games in all competition and have drawn only once - last weekend at Selhurst Park. Would Liverpool unpick flaws in the approach Emery is fostering after succeeding Arsene Wenger?

The last time these two sides met in the Premier League at the Emirates, a frantic clash in December previous year, the full time scoreline read 3-3 and while we should expect goals, I highly doubt this Liverpool backline will concede three in one game.

Emery is a coach of real pedigree with concrete belief in his methods. There are also two "number 8's" in Keita and Wijnaldum, with players who can adapt to different positions in Milner and Lallana, the centre of the park appears particularly well stocked.

Sadio Mané had the ball in the net after Roberto Firmino's shot had come back off the woodwork in the 18th minute only for the goal to be disallowed for offside. He was bold and was rewarded.

"We are not compact enough", Klopp said. "I was actually waiting for Robin van Persie and Dennis Bergkamp".

Thinking from an Arsenal point of view Molby added, "They don't really want to go seven points behind Liverpool this early in the season, so it's as massive a game for Arsenal as it is for us".

Lucas Torreira was outstanding in midfield and Arsenal were fearless in their approach, confronting Liverpool eye-to-eye.

Neither side could find a victor in the closing stages as Arsenal remain four points behind their visitors in the table.

Frank Lampard left frustrated on Stamford Bridge return
His forward runs were just as unsafe to Chelsea as to the opponents; both visiting goals came from the space vacated on his flank. Before the match, he said he would be "proud and honoured" to face a "club that was his home for 13 years".

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp expects both players to return to full training next week, but says the match comes too soon for them.

DF Sead Kolasinac, 7 - Couldn't have had a tougher assignment in his first league start of the season in going up against Mohamed Salah, but he managed to use his physicality to great effect against the Egyptian without stepping over the line.

Following the game against the Reds, Arsenal face two further home games - against Portuguese side Sporting and Wolves - before the worldwide break.

The last five league meetings between Arsenal and Liverpool have produced 27 goals, and Emery admits he would like to see another high-scoring encounter - provided the Gunners win.

Emery, though, hopes his belief in Arsenal's new era can be underlined by a positive result. Emirates Stadium is transformed, no longer a theatre of pain, but somewhere that once again resembles a football stadium.

The draw took Liverpool top of the table by one point from champions Manchester City, who host Southampton on Sunday.

"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".
