Arsenal receive injury blow ahead of their clash with Liverpool

Arsenal receive injury blow ahead of their clash with Liverpool

Alexandre Lacazette struck a late equaliser to extend Arsenal's unbeaten run to 14 games and deny Liverpool a significant victory in their bid to win the Premier League title.

Liverpool's intense pressing style and ability to swamp teams through sheer weight of goals under manager Jurgen Klopp would be the litmus test of Emery's new Arsenal.

The German magazine Der Spiegel reported on Friday that five English clubs were among 11 so-called "founding members" for the new elite competition, which would start in 2021. "Those two matches [against City and Chelsea], they are so far away, and also they are so near".

The one real hope for a title race worthy of the name this season is that Liverpool remains in touch with City despite being some way short of its best. I know the quality is very important, the performance is about this quality and also working together tactically.

Mourinho believes eighth-placed United, who are unbeaten in their last three league games, will improve and close the gap on their rivals over the next couple of months. We had it in the wrong half of the game I would say, in the first half.

Leicester City travel to Cardiff City on Saturday having made a decision to go ahead with the match following the death of chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha and four others in a helicopter crash last weekend.Manchester City host Southampton on Sunday and Chelsea welcome Crystal Palace to Stamford Bridge.

Couple Emery's unwavering loyalty to his philosophy with the statistics behind Cech's start to the season and perhaps the only surprise is that Leno hasn't already sewn up Arsenal's number one jersey.

Xi on Thursday said he looks forward to meeting with Trump at the G20 in Argentina, according to China's state media . The telephone conversation on Thursday was Trump and Xi's first publicly disclosed call in six months.

He always demands more and you only have to look at what Pep Guardiola has done at Manchester City to see what success that can bring when you are dealing with talented players. "We will wait on full-back".

Good managers and coaches make their players better, inspiring them to perform with greater intensity, and the greatest compliment for Emery is that he is transforming several members of his squad, many of whom had been written off as no-hopers during the final days of Wenger.

Emery said his team would have to execute a three-step plan to stop the visitors' attacking trio of Sadio Mane, Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino. We need to do things positive, with smiling and then with enjoying but also enjoying and working.

"We are nearer to this performance going forward, and it is not a bad point, but we need more". On the other side of the table, there are teams who have very few points and they all have a chance to stay in the league.

On Friday, the Spanish manager admitted he wants to address Arsenal's bad record against the Premier League's top six by beating the Reds.

The last time these two sides met in the Premier League at the Emirates, a frantic clash in December a year ago, the full time scoreline read 3-3 and while we should expect goals, I highly doubt this Liverpool backline will concede three in one game. They are developing moves with the goalkeeper because they build up through Alisson, the centre-backs and the midfield players.
