Martin Keown has been speaking about his former club Arsenal’s visit of Liverpool to the Emirates this weekend.
Liverpool have been sent a warning by Martin Keown of the difficulties they will face against his former club Arsenal.
The Gunners lead the Premier League table after winning seven of their first eight top-flight matches of the season. They also made it back-to-back victories in the Europa League on Thursday night when goals from Eddie Nketiah, Rob Holding and Fabio Vieira sealed a 3-0 home win over Norwegian club Bodo/Glimt.
Liverpool, themselves, won earlier in the week. They beat Rangers 2-0 at Anfield in the Champions League to bolster confidence going into the trip to the Emirates after a 3-3 draw at home to Brighton last weekend continued their stuttering start to the Premier League campaign.
But speaking after Arsenal brushed aside Bodo/Glimt, former England international Keown warned the Reds could be in for a tough afternoon on Sunday given the atmosphere at the Emirates is now ‘very different’.
The level of the opponent and the opponent is coming up in the distance because Klopp’s watching, he’s got a plan and he’s going to come after Arsenal at the weekend and they’ll have to be up for that challenge,” Keown told BT Sport.
It’ll be a very different Emirates that Liverpool experienced last time, because we talked about the Anfield impact, but that’s now returning for Arsenal.
“It’s a special day every time you turn out now.”
