I was waiting for Van Persie and Bergkamp - Klopp lauds Arsenal attack

  • Klopp Van Dijk

With two very offensive-orientated teams it can often happen.

Going forward, Liverpool were left to rely on moments rather than periods of sustained quality.

Arsenal are back in the fourth.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery was however, sympathetic to Ozil's frustration.

Klopp insists that night in Basel, when Sevilla came from behind having been dominated for 45 minutes to win 3-1, has been consigned to history.

When asked about Arsenal's record against their "Big Six" opponents, Emery said: "We want to write a new history". He's a Champions League and World Cup finalist and that deserves respect.

Emery's men have a chance to put down an early marker by taking out Jurgen Klopp's high-flying Liverpool on Saturday.

It is also worth noting that towards the back end of last season, with van Dijk in the ranks, Liverpool conceded at least twice against Manchester United, Spurs, Roma (twice) and Real Madrid. In defence, it is a completely different matter. No wonder that both the teams that share the trait also share the top spot in the table.

"I believe we were the better side today and that's how we must continue".

Defense Dept. Sending 5200 Troops to Southern Border
But Mexican officials seem intent only on seeing the caravan melt away as it travels toward the USA border. The Journal reported that the Pentagon plans to deploy 5,000 troops, mainly military police and engineers.

The Gunners could however, be without several key players against the Reds.

Last season, Arsenal probably would have lost that game.

But Egypt striker Mohamed Salah - who has scored five goals and provided three assists in the Premier League - is set to make the match against in-form Arsenal after battling against inflammation of a tendon in his arm. It was the captain's 50th Premier League goal, and his first from open play since March 2016. But, they have never been leading at halftime, suggesting that the bulk of their scoring has been happening in the second half.

But in between, Arsenal took the game to their below-par visitors, firing off nine shots, the most Klopp's side had faced in the opening 45 minutes of a Premier League game since February 2017. Only Mourinho (12) and Gerry Francis (8) will have waited more for their first defeat against Arsenal.

Self-confessed bookworm Unai Emery has just finished reading a book which carries a title he will want to transpose onto his Arsenal side when they face Liverpool on Saturday night.

And they gave as good as they got against an Arsenal team that recently won 11 straight games across all competitions, and was still riding a run of seven consecutive victories at home. His recent run is reminiscent of the fabulous start he made at Old Trafford, when he scored four goals in his first four games.

"A smile is better when you win".

To blame Alisson for the goal would be harsh, but he too had a slightly shaky night, coming for a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang cross after 16 minutes but arriving long after Henrikh Mkhitaryan, whose header drifted just wide.

He has done the same with every player, by creating an environment where they are fighting for their place.
