Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta has admitted that his team faces a tough game when the Reds visit Emirates Stadium on Saturday despite Liverpool’s challenging issues in recent games.

The  Premier League defending champions’ title defense mission is already lost, in a season that has been capped with lots of injuries and poor form. Arteta however still feels that Liverpool have the quality to come out stronger. Arteta said:

“I don’t know, I’m not the one to analyse what has gone wrong for them,” said Arteta on Thursday when asked about Liverpool’s issues.

“I can talk about what they’ve done – I’ve seen a lot of games and what they’re still producing and the stats will support that.

“They are, if not the best, the second best team in every department that we coaches have to analyse.

“But then this is football, the ball has to be in that net and the final action has to provide a moment to win a football match

“And then you have some individuals that dictate the quality of your team.

“Sometimes you cannot predict those things, so I think it’s a lot of things.”

Liverpool are just four points above Arsenal and are in seventh in the Premier League table. But Mikel Arteta doesn’t take this as motivation ahead of the Saturday clash.

He said: “I prefer to look at ourselves, 

“What they have done in recent years has been incredible

“Obviously the competition that they were facing with Manchester City made both teams better and I think they’ve been pushing each other to a different level, one that we probably haven’t seen in the Premier League.

“That’s the level that we have to reach to compete with them.

“This season is so different, in particular they have had a lot of issues internally with big injuries.

“But they’re still amazing with what they’ve done.”
