Reflecting on their previous triumph at Anfield in 2012, Arteta, who was a player at that time, expressed the team’s aspirations to replicate that success. “Last time we beat them was a while ago and it was a good moment, which is something we can replicate tomorrow…”

Providing insight into the team’s injury status, Arteta mentioned, “Thomas Partey is still finalizing his rehab. He hasn’t trained with the team yet. Mo Elneny hopefully will train with us today. Jorginho is still a doubt.”

Addressing the recent European Court of Justice ruling regarding the Super League, Arteta reiterated Arsenal’s stance. “We are very clear. It is exactly the same. We remain in the same position,” he affirmed. Arsenal reaffirmed its commitment to playing in the Champions League, emphasizing the importance of football supporters and their opinions.

In response to the Super League project, which Arsenal initially joined before withdrawing due to fan protests, the club distanced itself further from the initiative. The club posted a statement on Friday reiterating its detachment from the Super League, aligning itself with the sentiments of the football community.

The clash between Arsenal and Liverpool not only promises intense football but also highlights the aspirations of both clubs in their quest for Premier League glory. With the stage set for a gripping encounter, fans await a showdown that could potentially reshape the league’s landscape. Get the latest updates from the Premier League only on Nextbet Sports
