Jurgen Klopp: Scoring three at Arsenal 'should be enough' to win

Jurgen Klopp: Scoring three at Arsenal 'should be enough' to win

Arsene Wenger questions Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's decision to swap Arsenal for Liverpool, as the two teams prepare to face off on Friday night.

"We play such good football going forward and maybe sometimes we need to switch that off for five or 10 minutes".

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain controversially moved to Merseyside days after starting in the defeat for Arsenal, which left the Emirates outfit 16th in the table at the time.

Liverpool's attack has been phenomenal this season with Mohamed Salah, Philippe Coutinho, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino making the Reds one of the most potent attacking threats in the Premier League this season.

Joe Gomez completed 90 minutes in the draw against Arsenal on Friday night - and the Liverpool fans ripped into him on Twitter.

"We have to be really, really strong defensively in that game, otherwise we don't have a chance", Klopp said.

However, an away victory would see the Merseysiders open-up a four-point advantage and put Jurgen Klopp's men firmly in the driving seat to finish in the top four so it's all to play for in north London.

Neville agreed, adding: "They're an emotional team Liverpool". That's the answer. You are sure nowhere.

"I feel like I'm settled in now and I'm learning the ropes and my roles and responsibilities".

"You've got to take the emotion out of the game". Despite that energy advantage - which Chelsea exploited last season to win the Premier League - the Gunners are still struggling to keep within touching distance of the top four. I've been doing better and it has been coming, but there's definitely more to come from me.

"Mignolet is not early into his Liverpool career, we're talking four or five years and it's a long time". We need to be spot on in this specific part of the game'.

Liverpool are still dealing with a set of defensive injuries, with Alberto Moreno and Nathaniel Clyne still out and Joel Matip only potentially available, as well as a couple of reserve players out hurt in Marko Grujic and Adam Bogdan.
