Liverpool will be up against title favorites Arsenal this weekend at the Emirates Stadium with their boss Jurgen Klopp praising their opponents’ revitalization ahead of the showdown.
The Reds travel to north London as one of three unbeaten teams in the Premier League after 10 matches, with Arsenal sitting four points behind them in fourth; Arsenal remaining unbeaten since their opening two weeks defeat at the hands of Manchester City and Chelsea.
"After a tough start they have had an impressive run. It will be a very, very interesting game for sure. Of course Arsenal are a threat. Their first two games against City and Chelsea, it's possible you would get no points. But how they played two or three months ago isn't important. We have analysed their last few games and you need the full package in games like this,” Klopp said in his pre-match conference.
Klopp has not been surprised by Emery's impact at Arsenal since replacing Arsene Wenger, saying a change may have been just what the Gunners squad needed.

"Wenger is one of the best managers in the world and sometimes after a very long time the mood at a club changes. Everybody in football knows how good Emery is. When a new manager comes in all players are out of their comfort zone. They all have to prove from the first day that they are not only the name, they are a footballer as well. It was clear that things would change, and the players know now," the German added.
Avoiding defeat would extend Liverpool's record-breaking start to the season, but Klopp knows there is still a lot of work to be done if they are to be title contenders.
