Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has revealed that his team will be going to Anfield to pick the three points against Liverpool.
Recall that the Gunners go to Liverpool on Sunday having not won since 2012.
“You cannot train the players in the zoo and then go to the jungle on Sunday,” said Arteta, referring to famously playing ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ during training ahead of last season’s fixture.
“It’s impossible. You have to expose yourself. You have to prepare the players. You have to tell them what they’re going to be facing and you have to recognise that.”
The Spaniard added: “The team is full of enthusiasm and positivity.
“We know that we have a big challenge but it is a big opportunity to go to Anfield and do something we haven’t done in many years and that is what [has been] driving the team the last few days.”
During last season’s clash, Arteta had a first-half bust-up with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.
Arteta said: “I reacted to defend our players the best possible way but I don’t like seeing myself like this so hopefully not.
“It happens in football and after that we hugged each other and moved on. The last time we were together nothing happened.
“I have full respect and admiration for what they’ve done. We’ve moved on.”
