Liverpool vs Arsenal, Mikel Arteta Not Worried About Bad Record at Anfield

Liverpool vs Arsenal, Mikel Arteta Not Worried About Bad Record at Anfield, Jakarta – Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta has not been swayed by his club’s poor record at Anfield and will be looking to win against Liverpool on Sunday to move closer to the Premier League title.

Arsenal currently top the table, eight points clear of Manchester City who face bottom-of-the-table Southampton on Saturday.

The Gunners have not won a league game at Anfield since Arteta’s 2-0 win in 2012.

Under Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool have won the last six matches between the two clubs with a total score of 22-4.

But Liverpool are currently slumped in eighth place in the standings, 29 points behind Arsenal, who have just ended their long wait to win at Tottenham this season.

“We have to enjoy it,” said Arteta ahead of the two teams’ meeting as quoted by AFP on Friday. “We really had to embrace this moment and go for it.

“The team is very enthusiastic and very positive and we know we have a big challenge but a great opportunity to go to Anfield and do something we haven’t done in years. That’s what has driven this team in the last few days.

“We know what we have to do. We have played in tough places.”

Gabriel Jesus’ double in the 4-1 win over Leeds last week in his first league start since November has provided Arteta with an attacking option.

Bukayo Saka is ready to return to grazing following illness. Gabriel Martinelli and Leandro Trossard are also likely to feature in the starting XI.

“At the moment they are in very good condition,” said Arteta.

“It depends on the moment, what we want to do, the quality we are looking for and the relationship we want on certain days.

“Then you can definitely make five substitutions (during the game), so you have the ability to change the game with those players, which is very good for us.”

The Liverpool vs Arsenal schedule will be available Sunday evening, 9 April 2023, starting at 22.30 WIB.
