    Match Preview

    Arsenal faces a real test of its credentials against Liverpool on Sunday, but it still has plenty of room for improvement, manager Mikel Arteta said on Friday.


    Liverpool, champion in 2019-20 and runners-up last season, is tenth with only two wins from seven matches ahead of the game at the Emirates Stadium. It won 2-0 there last time around in March.


    “It is a really exciting game to play against one of the top opponents in this league,” Arteta told reporters. “It’s going to be a really demanding match that’s going to require us to be at our best again.


    “It’s a fixture that everybody is looking for against an opponent that has shown in the last five or six years the level they have and we have to show that we have raised the level and are ready to compete against them.”


    Arsenal is unbeaten at home in the league, its sole defeat coming at Manchester United last month, and Arteta said he was proud of the change in atmosphere at the North London club.


    “How you measure success is lifting trophies, but as well you have to understand where we were and how fractured the club and the environment looked,” he said.


    “I am very conscious that we can get much better than what we are today... we have to do better to be the team that we want to be and the challenge now is to do it every three days.


    “You always see the weaknesses that you want to improve.”
