Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has warned his players
about Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette,
ahead of their Premier League clash on Saturday.
Klopp also downplayed their tag as favourites and insisted
Unai Emery's side will not come to Anfield just to lay down
Liverpool currently sit top of the Premier League and
opened up a six-point gap after trouncing Newcastle 4-0 on
Boxing Day, while Arsenal are in fifth place.
Although Emery claimed Klopp's men could go the season
unbeaten, the German rejected claims that his opposite
number was trying to play mind games, saying: "Was the
question for Unai Emery, 'Do you think Liverpool can go
unbeaten?' Is that a normal answer then?'.
"That's not how I know Unai Emery (taking pressure off his
team). I don't think that the white flag has been raised, it
will be a tough game tomorrow night. They are good and
that is all I am interested in. We are focused on ourselves.
"We were not as good as we can be defending-wise. I think
it was in the period of the Napoli game when we didn't do
too well. We needed this couple of weeks for adjusting a
few things. We did that.
"They are good, strong with the ball and very lively. Their
counter-attacks are crazy-quick. Aubameyang and
[Alexandre] Lacazette are a good strike two. Outstanding
strikers up front, quick on the wings, a really good team."
