Unai Emery makes Liverpool admission which will worry Gunners fans

The Merseysiders are currently top of the Premier League after their best ever start to a league season.

Jurgen Klopp's men knocked reigning champions Manchester City off top spot earlier this month and are now seven points ahead of Pep Guardiola's side.

The Reds have yet to taste defeat this season and haven't been in danger doing so for a long time.

Their unbeaten start to the campaign has led many to wonder if they can emulate Arsenal's 2003-04 title-winning side and go the entire season without losing.

Emery believes Klopp's troops could very well replicate the momentous achievement of Arsenal's Invincibles and believes his side can learn a thing or two from their progression.

"At the moment they are doing and they can do it," Emery said of Liverpool, who the Gunners will play on Saturday evening. "They are doing it at the moment.

"We played three years ago in the Europa League final with Sevilla against Liverpool and we beat them.

"But look at the process and it's a very good example for us.

"The progression is clear: they were out of the Champions League and they are an example for us at Arsenal now.

"We need to be demanding of ourselves but we need time and patience is very important."

Arsenal drew 1-1 with Liverpool at the Emirates in early November, with Alexandre Lacazette cancelling out James Milner's second-half strike with an 82nd-minute equaliser.

Emery is expecting a sterner test when his side visits Anfield, adding: "First, they are usually feeling very high in their stadium with their supporters.

"Also the atmosphere is one point more for them.

"But we have players who have the habit of playing in big matches, also in Liverpool, and we know it is difficult for us but for me, it is a very big test, I have a big motivation and I am looking forward to our response against them.

"Also, after finishing the first half of the season, we are in a good position with the points, 38, not very good but it is good and with the difference to the other teams.

"They are doing this difference and we need to do our process in the second half of the season to improve and to take a big performance little by little to shorten the difference between them and us."
