Jurgen Klopp: Arsenal Can Batter Liverpool And Dent Our Title Charge

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has warned that Arsenal will expose his side on the break if they deploy the same tactics which helped them overcome Newcastle on Wednesday. The Reds marched to a convincing 4-0 victory over Rafael Benítez’s side at Anfield, with goals from Dejan Lovren, Mohamed Salah, Xherdan Shaqiri and Fabinho.Klopp handed a start to Shaqiri for the Boxing Day clash, with Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino also named in an attacking side. But the Liverpool boss has warned his side “won’t have a chance” against Unai Emery’s menacing front line if they adopt the same approach when Arsenal visit on Saturday evening. “A completely different game, of course,” Klopp said. “If we let them counter-attack like we did (against Newcastle) I don’t think we have a chance because they are really strong in that. So we have to improve so many things. But on the other hand, we have 51 points and that’s unbelievable. We played the first part of the season unbeaten – that’s all good and we feel it, it feels really good. The only little problem we have is the second part of the season starts (on Saturday]. What we wanted to do when we started in the summer was to create a basis in the first part of the season for the second part.“We’ve created that basis and now we have to work with it. What we did so far, we will do again and again and again. We’ll really be completely focused on the next game. We need tunnel vision, all of us, being in the situation – dig in and try to make the best of each game. Then we will see where it leads us to.”Photo Credit: Getty
