Liverpool are perfectly set up to exploit Arsenal’s first-half sluggishness

Blackpool return to Sky Bet League One action on Saturday as they host Bristol Rovers, with manager Terry McPhillips wanting to use the Arsenal display as a yardstick moving forwards.

On the other side, it's been more than two months since Saints last won a league game (Sept. 1), their only victory in PL play this season. "The result tomorrow is very important, but firstly I want to show everybody our best mentality in the game".

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

He maintained Liverpool's record of not losing a Premier League game after getting on the scoresheet.

Arsenal have won only five of their last 32 meetings against Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, dating back to the 2015-16 season. It means we are a not a continuously solid team at the moment.

Paul Pogba: I have no regrets about leaving Juventus for Manchester United
Pogba was the subject of a bid from Barcelona in the summer and there have been suggestions the 25-year-old wants to leave.

"Tomorrow is similar because Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool are in front of us in the table and now we want to compete against them and this test, I think, is a very important test but I trust in our players, I trust in our way".

When is the Premier League match between Arsenal vs Liverpool? Emery has been tasked with essentially emulating Klopp's success at the Emirates - turning a sixth-place Premier League finisher into a genuine title contender - and he's aware that he may need as much time as Klopp has been afforded. That works out at an average of nearly five-and-a-half per game. "Klopp need to get Fekir/Ziyech in January".

"It was always hard against Arsenal (before today), it was very spectacular, today was no less spectacular just with less goals than last season". His scoring blip (5 games run in the league) might come to an end, as xG90 of 0.42 and xA90 of 0.24, indicate Aubameyang-like probabilities of goal contribution from Firmino.

Emery could face problems in defence, however, with full-backs Hector Bellerin, Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac all doubts. Throw in Granit Xhaka to be carded - he has been booked in three of four midfield appearances against Liverpool and could be even more exposed if he starts at left-back - and the price reaches a tasty 7.7. Naby Keita, who arrived in the summer, will continue to be sidelined, as he nurses his hamstring injury.

Leicester honoured the memory of owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha with a 1-0 win at Cardiff. According to the Sky Sports pundit, the Gunners could have come away from two or three of those games with a loss due to their shaky defending.
