Historically, they say there are a lot of goals in matches between Arsenal and Liverpool, and the most important thing for us is that every supporter can enjoy this match. No doubt the point differences will increase as the season goes on and one way it will increase is when two of these top-six teams take each other head on.
Liverpool stays unbeaten in the Premier League 2018-19 season so far while Arsenal was on an 11-match winning streak until last week when they suffered a 2-2 draw in a high-octane clash with Leicester City.
"The result tomorrow is very important but first I want to show them, to show you and to show everybody our best mentality in the game", he said.
The rebuild required since Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement remains a steady, ongoing process, but if their rediscovery of the resilience that gave them so many points late on in games under Ferguson becomes a regular feature it will ensure they maintain their present momentum.
Goalkeeper: Petr Cech returned for the League Cup win over Blackpool but the 36-year-old wasn't at his best and I think Emery will recall Leno against Liverpool as the German was in fine form during Cech's absence.
Boss Unai Emery will be pleased that Hector Bellerin, Sead Kolasinac and Laurent Koscielny are all closing in on returns from injury and were pictured training yesterday. 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. City have recorded 7 clean sheets out of 10 matches played so far this campaign, only conceding one goal apiece in the games that they have conceded, although these matches still ended in victory.
Liverpool travel to the Emirates Stadium on Saturday to take on Arsenal and Jurgen Klopp might have two major absentees for the game.
The veteran midfielder was all over the pitch for Liverpool and scored the Reds only goal during the game. They are also likely to miss the Champions League trip to Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday.
"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". And with Emery's attack looking more than capable, it will be a tale of which defence wants to win the most.
