Emery urges Arsenal to 'write a new history' as Liverpool loom

Arsenal are back in the fourth.

Unai Emery took over from Arsene Wenger in the summer, having made the switch from La Liga side Sevilla. It's a tough game.

They did compete here and their supporters inside the Emirates Stadium stuck with them as Emery's side played their part in an evenly-matched encounter.

- Matteo Guendouzi is the first Arsenal player to be sent off in the League Cup since Denilson against Blackburn Rovers in December 2007. 'It's very important when you play against City, Chelsea, Liverpool and if you win it's better.

He is a guaranteed starter on the left side against Liverpool, with partner-in-crime Alexandre Lacazette set to spearhead the attack for the home team. "In fact, this is probably Liverpool's most hard game of the season so far". In defence, it is a completely different matter.

A win at the Emirates today would see them overtake Chelsea for 24 hours at least - as the Blues take on Crystal Palace tomorrow afternoon.

The top of the table.

McPhillips felt the decision to dismiss O'Connor was harsh and came at a time when Blackpool had their Premier League hosts rattled. We have all what we need.

"I usually give them (players) some books to read, but not yet here".

Now fourth in the Premier League standings, four points behind top two teams City and Liverpool, Arsenal will be hoping to reduce the gap at the top with a win this weekend. However, Liverpool generally find it hard at the Emirates Stadium, as they have won only twice in the league at the Emirates stadium in last 18 years.

Unlike previous year, Liverpool's defensive discipline has overshadowed their attacking firepower.

Arsenal vs Liverpool match will be aired on Star Sports Select 1 and Star Sports Select 1 HD. "I just can not see how Arsenal will live with them", Merson exclaimed.

Speaking after the game, Liverpool boss Klopp said: "We scored a goal which was not offside and Virgil [van Dijk] had two chances he would normally score with his eyes closed". He was subbed with Xherdan Shaqiri in the second half. Henrikh Mkhitaryan got up above an uncertain Alisson to head just wide of goal from a deep cross, before Liverpool went up the other end and had the ball in the net. Only Mourinho (12) and Gerry Francis (8) will have waited more for their first defeat against Arsenal.

Emery believes Klopp's continued progress at Anfield is an example for Arsenal to follow in the near-future.
