Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has explained how his side can beat Liverpool for a third time in succession.
The Gunners make two trips to Anfield this week, first for a Premier League fixture on Monday, before a Carabao Cup fourth-round clash on Thursday.
Arteta’s men have already defeated the Reds twice this summer.
First was a 2-1 win in the Premier League back in July, despite having just 30% of possession and conceding 31 shots.
Then in the Community Shield last month, which Arsenal won on penalties, after Takumi Minamino cancelled out Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s opener.
Arteta says his players will all need to be at their very best at Anfield.
“First of all, you need a great individual performance by all of them,” he said according to Football London.
“You need certain luck, that’s for sure, in moments in the game, and then you have to be so consistent in everything you do throughout 96 minutes because in any moment they can open you up and you can get exposed.
“You never give up. That’s another thing that is crucial against them.
“You have to expect them to be at their best. If you’re always expecting that then the level of attention is higher, focus is higher and you are more determined in every ball. Against them that’s key.”
