Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has spoken about rivals Arsenal ahead of this weekend’s clash.
Spanish coach Unai Emery took over from long standing Gunners boss Arsene Wenger in the Summer and has been praised for the start he has made in the job by the German.
And Klopp feels that he is coming up against a different Arsenal side this time – one which plays football in the right fashion.
“They are a different proposition every year.” he said.
“I remember a lot of good games and tight games against them; it was always proper football against them. They were always really big challenges for us.
“If you would have asked me, I wouldn’t have known we’d had eleven out of fifteen. I only knew it was always hard work and that will be the case again. They are really strong.
“Unai Emery had the big task to come in after Arsene Wenger after what felt like fifty years of Arsene Wenger at Arsenal. He did brilliantly.
“After a tough start they started an impressive run – hopefully they’re not still in it! It will be a very, very interesting game.
“They are well organised with a clear plan, good in counter-attacks – all they can do quickly is outstanding – and good in small spaces as well.
“It’s a tough game. Nobody made them a present and gave them points, they had to work for it and they deserved it.
“We need to be ready for that, for sure.” he finished.
Liverpool head to London undefeated in the Premier League and level on points with champions Manchester City, so a victory in this game could well prove priceless in the title race.
