At 3:00 am on September 29, Beijing time, in the third round of the Premier League, Arsenal were a guest to challenge Liverpool. Before the game, Gunners coach Arteta said that this is a difficult game, but the Gunners must believe that they can attack Anfield.
They are all very different games. Our Premier League game at the Emirates Stadium is very different from our game in the Community Shield. I think the game (Monday night) will be different again. We know how high the standards they set in the league and how good their stability is, because they dominate almost every aspect of the game, so we need to come up with the best state, we need to play with this ball The team competes well and hope the boys can do this on Monday.
Some strategies have to depend on what they do, and then think about how we control these aspects, and how we attack in different ways. Liverpool's offense is like a sea wave, wave after wave, and won't give you too much time to kick.
Playing against the same team twice in four days is usually difficult, and it is difficult for players to adapt. Obviously, the first game has a big impact on the second, and it is really difficult to beat the same opponent twice in such a short time. When the opponent is Liverpool, the challenge is even greater, but I just want to focus on the first game. Let us be as prepared as possible to go to Anfield. The most important thing is to believe that we can win. We must all believe in our ability to do this.
Obviously, the fans can make them stronger because they create a unique atmosphere at Anfield. But without fans, you can see how well Liverpool play, so we know how big the challenge is.
