Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown has expressed doubts over the Premier League title credentials of Liverpool after the Reds failed to beat the Gunners when they met on Saturday evening at the Emirates Stadium.

Though Manchester City now sit atop the Premier League standings, a mere six points separate the top six teams.

"This team three seasons ago, they were playing in the final of the Europa League", Emery said.

"We appreciate the quality of the opposition but we can't show any fear on the pitch, we need to be courageous, we need to do our best to play our best football and play the way Klopp wants us to on the pitch".

"There are teams that sometimes run more than we do given the amount of defending they have to do".

Unai Emery is looking to get his Gunners tenure off to the best possible start while Mauricio Pochettino is still waiting for his first trophy at Spurs. It's not too hard to draw the conclusion that they are a better side now than they were when losing to Man City and Chelsea in August and I expect them to at least challenge the supposedly superior team.

Again, the Houston native regained his feet, but the respite only last a matter of seconds as Cormier took him down again. One of the most genuine and honest people in sports, Cormier heaped praised upon Lewis' power, but it was never a factor.

"We need to aim to get better with every game". After City, after Chelsea, maybe today we are more near in our performance to be in front of them.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp expects both players to return to full training next week, but says the match comes too soon for them.

Arsenal face Liverpool this weekend in the Premier League with both teams in red-hot form at the start of this current campaign.

'If you enjoy it as a spectacle then it is good!

- Arsenal are winless in their past seven Premier League meetings with Liverpool (D3 L4). But at the beginning of the season, you had the feeling the fans become very uneasy, but the fans immediately pushed us forward. We are in our mentality that we also need to improve things but each match they are giving us a lot of information for improvement and development and I trust in my players'. The characteristics each player has is very important and Iwobi can impact high in the match. Because he scored against Chelsea, and I want him to be more in the box, to have more chances to score.
