Aubameyang thinks Arsenal can match Liverpool 0

Posted on August 23, 2019 by Veselin Trajkovic

Sitting down with Sky Sports, Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang talked about his expectations from the Saturday’s match against Liverpool and how things will change for them now that the club have signed Nicolas Pepe for a record amount of 79 million euros.

It is no surprise that there are great expectations from the striking trio: Aubameyang himself, Alexandre Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe. Aubameyang and Lacazette had a highly successful season last year even without the newest addition to their team. The two of them scored 50 times between themselves, the former 31 and the latter 19, while Pepe, who played at Lille last season, scored 23 goals.

Emery assesses the situation ahead of Arsenal’s match against Liverpool 0

Arsenal boss Unai Emery says he will not let their last year’s result against Liverpool get to him and the team.

The two clubs last met in December 2018. Although Ainsley Maitland-Niles provided Arsenal with an initial lead during the eleventh minute of the game, that goal was followed by two of Firmino’s, one of Mane’s, Salah’s penalty goal and finally the completion of Firmino’s hat-trick, which resulted in Arsenal’s devastating 5-1 defeat.

Emery thinks that each season is different and that looking at and comparing this one to that one, two, three or more years ago is not the right thing to do, but rather to be and play at this moment.

Arsenal face an uphill challenge this weekend, and even that may be putting it lightly. Even the most optimistic of Gunners fans will admit that it’s going to be tricky for them to beat Liverpool, who were able to win their first two games of the brand new Premier League season. Of course, Arsenal have also been able to do that, so in those terms you’re probably wondering why people are so scared of them.

With two victories behind him and his team, one against Newcastle and one against Burnley this past Saturday, Unai Emery is excited to put his squad to the test at Anfield on 24 August.

After signing five new players in the most recent transfer window – David Luiz, Nicolas Pépé, Gabriel Martinelli, William Saliba and Kieran Tierney – and brining Dani Ceballos on loan from Real Madrid, the Gunners’ boss is looking forward to measuring up to the reigning Champions League holders. After finishing fifth in the last season’s Premiere League table with 21 wins and 70 point altogether, Emery will endeavor to reduce the difference in points between his team and Manchester City and Liverpool, who scored 98 and 97 points, respectively.

Big test coming up for Arsenal 0

Arsenal were able to secure their second consecutive Premier League win of the season this weekend, as they edged past Burnley to move onto six points for the campaign. The game wasn’t exactly a slam dunk and the Clarets caused Unai Emery’s men plenty of problems, but in the end, they got the job done. Above all else, the fact that they were able to overcome adversity like that is the biggest step forward of them all.

The next ‘old’ Liverpool? 0

At this moment in time, you could certainly make the argument that Liverpool Football Club are one of the top two or three best clubs in world football. They seem to have finally found a formula that works for them, with many taking the time to praise Jurgen Klopp as a result of that. Of course, he isn’t the only factor behind their success, but he certainly went a long way towards fixing one of their biggest issues within the squad: defensive frailties.

Wolves (A)

Assuming Wolves aren’t in the latter stages of the Europa League at this point, this game could be dangerous. The last time Arsenal went to Molineux they were thoroughly beaten by a Wolves side that, simply put, were much better than them. Will the same thing happen again? Don’t be surprised.

Leicester (H)

Leicester City are a tricky side to deal with, but even with that being the case, there shouldn’t be any kind of overwhelming worry regarding what they’re capable of – especially if Brendan Rodgers is still at the helm. That may seem and sound a little bit harsh, but they just don’t strike us as an intimidating side.

Arsenal’s Premier League campaign is still around two months from actually getting underway, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get a little bit excited about it. There are so many reasons to think, feel and believe that this is going to be an important season in the history of Arsenal Football Club, but of course, the same thing could be said for any other season.

How Emirates matches up to PL’s biggest stadiums – Part 2 0

City of Manchester Stadium – 55,017

They call it a tinpot ground and while we’d like to give City fans the benefit of the doubt, we just can’t. It feels a little bit soulless there and bizarrely enough, that was also the case before they were even taken over. Perhaps it was a foreshadowing of some sort.

Anfield – 54,074

It’s not in a great area and the stadium itself isn’t all that impressive, but the atmosphere, especially on European nights, makes you forget about all of that. It’s just a really special place to watch a game of football and the only people you’ll find to disagree with that probably spend their days at Old Trafford or Goodison.

The Pepe issue 0

We aren’t going to pretend like we know all of the behind the scenes details from the summer transfer window, because that isn’t even remotely close to being the truth. We know about as much as the average person could ever hope to, and we can only really base our thoughts and opinions off of what we see being released on a day to day basis.
