Emery out to 'write new history' against Arsenal's major rivals

Arsenal Vs Liverpool Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

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

The tourists are missing some first choice players of their own, but they will have nothing to fear at a venue where they have won five of their last six, and against an England team that is low on confidence. The story, which arose from the latest Football Leaks revelations, claimed that Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and the Manchester clubs had been in negotiations about the new format, which would replace the Champions League.

"I think before I came here, Arsenal was already one family".

The Reds travel to north London as one of three unbeaten teams in the Premier League after 10 matches, with Arsenal sitting four points behind them in fourth. And then you see: "'Oh, OK, we have 20 games more and not more money'".

"The gap between Liverpool and Manchester City was big previous year, so to overcome this gap you must be really strong and consistent and so far they're doing so well".

"Ask him. If he thought the first situation was offside, I think it would be the wrong decision". The likes of Mohammed Salah returning to peak form is certainly not good news for Emery's hosts.

Within a minute of Salah's goal in the 52nd minute, Alexis Sanchez struck to make it 2-1 before Granit Xhaka took advantage of poor handling by the Reds goalkeeper Simon Mignolet to equalise with an effort from long range - Arsenal were in charge again.

Washington Wizards have just completed a rough five-game road trip, which saw them lose four times, but with three days' rest they should be a tougher prospect on their home patch and I'm backing them to edge out Oklahoma.

Ozil's treatment this season is probably the best example of Emery's approach. With a chance created every 47.1 minutes (14 from 660 mins), the German is 21st overall in the top flight of players to have played more than 450 minutes.

"It's good for us that we could deal with it the way we did, the boys did well with the change of the system".

"Tactically we need to be together and impose our style and idea on the game".

He surprised a lot of people, but he did the same when I interviewed him last week and he spoke about how he is always determined to win - whether it is training or in games - and how he has been like that right through his career.
