Arsenal host Liverpool at the Emirates in BT Sport's live Saturday evening match in a tantalising fixture that sees Jurgen Klopp's title-chasers take on Unai Emery's resurgent Gunners.

But this game will be the first time they have come up against a "big six" rival since the back-to-back defeats against Manchester City and Chelsea at the start of the season.

Emery's side face the toughest test since losing their first two games of the season against Manchester City and Chelsea.

"We want to write a new history", said the former Paris Saint-Germain coach.

"We appreciate the quality of the opposition but we can't show any fear on the pitch, we need to be courageous, we need to do our best to play our best football and play the way Klopp wants us to on the pitch".

"We wanted to win but the performance is good, we push and we work the match, doing our tactics and with our supporters pushing us with energy".

"We need a big match in the individual duels against them and also tactically we need to be together and play with our identity and style that we need to impose on them".

Arsenal bounced back from their draw with Crystal Palace by beating League One side Blackpool 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium to reach the EFL Cup quarter-finals, as both teams had a player sent off. "I think he can". "We played well in the offensive phase, but a lot of mistakes in the defensive phase".

"For us, it's different if we play away or if we play here at home".

"I use it for me and I use it also to give the players my experience or my learning in every moment". Klopp and his team know that a win on Saturday can help them consolidate their top position even further and will go all guns blazing to achieve exactly that.

The 374 game playmaker referenced the ease at which Leicester City cut Arsenal apart earlier in the season and confessed that he was much more anxious about the quality of Jurgen Klopp's forward line.

The Reds, who have yet to lose in the Premier League this season, have been stingy on defense, conceding only four times in 10 Premier League matches. What's worse, it's been almost as long (more than five full games) since they last scored a goal.

'But the other games are important also.

Liverpool have been unbeaten since the start of the season and now top the table, leveling with champions, Manchester City, on points.

Whether you put Arsenal in such a bracket is, I suppose, key to how you will bet in this one, but I suggest their attack is more than good enough to find the target.
