Arsenal vs Liverpool: What I told my players about Allisson - Emery

Compare that to champions Manchester City, who picked up 24 points from the 30 on offer against Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham.

Arsenal had previously lost to Manchester City and Chelsea this season, but gave a much better account of themselves against the Reds and deserved a point.

'We want to write a new history, ' Emery said. It's a reason also that firstly I have respect and secondly because I want to win each match, like today against Blackpool. "But I believe in our team and our players".

Arsenal will have an incredibly strong attack with their in form strikers in Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang a problem for Liverpool's back line but I think if Xhaka and Lichsteiner start at fullback they could be horribly exposed.

"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". Previous year a few teams played really good seasons but there was no chance to catch City because, by October-November, the gap was already that big.

For reasons given above, I like over 0.5 Liverpool goals in the first half, over 0.5 Arsenal goals in the second half.

But the other parties to the deal - Britain, France, Germany, China and Russian Federation - stuck with it. Trump called the Obama-era nuclear deal with Iran the "worst ever" agreement stuck by the U.S.

Unai Emery's side saw their 11-match winning run come to an end at Selhurst Park on Sunday, but they avoided falling short for the second game in a row, even if the performance left a lot to be desired.

On Saturday, Liverpool travel to Emirates Stadium in London to take on Arsenal in exactly one such encounter.

AC Milan, where former Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis is set to take charge, are leading the chase, but they have major competition, with Juventus also keen, whilst Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Monaco and Borussia Dortmund are also keeping tabs on him.

Arsenal's last win in this fixture came back in April 2015 and the last six meetings have seen three Liverpool wins and three draws.

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. "If the next game would be next Friday then probably both would be fit, but the next game is on Saturday and the other one on Tuesday, so that could be a bit tight".

Emery dodged a question about Ramsey's contract after Wednesday's 2-1 win over Blackpool in the Carabao Cup, but said he is confident the player is remaining focused on his job.
