‘How they played two or three months ago is not important… they are a threat to everyone’: Jurgen Klopp warns his players not to underestimate Arsenal despite their poor ‘Big Six’ record
- Liverpool are preparing to take on Arsenal at the Emirates stadium this weekend
- Jurgen Klopp insists the Gunners are a ‘threat to everyone’ under Unai Emery
- Arsenal’s 11-match winning run ended last weekend drawing at Crystal Palace
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has warned his players not to underestimate Arsenal this weekend despite the north London club’s poor recent record against the ‘Big Six’.
Unai Emery started his tenure as Arsenal boss with successive defeats against Manchester City and Chelsea but has since seen a major turnaround in the club’s form.
For Klopp, Arsenal’s form from the start of the season is of no great concern having insisted at his press conference on Friday that ‘nobody gave them a present’ during their outstanding recent run.

Unai Emery’s side are in form but they started the season with Man City and Chelsea defeats
‘Unai Emery had the big task of coming in after Arsene Wenger for what felt like 50 years. And so he did brilliant,’ Klopp told reporters.
‘After a tough start they started the impressive run and that’s how it is. Hopefully they aren’t still in it (after this weekend)! It will be a very interesting game for sure. They are well organised, have a clear plan and (are) good on the counter-attack.
‘What they do quick is outstanding. It’s a tough game and nobody gave them a present. They had to work for it and they earned it so we have to be ready for sure.
‘They played the tough games in an impressive way and won all of them bar the crystal palace game which they could have won. How they played two or three months ago is not important. Of course they are a threat to everyone.’
