Following their respective victories at the weekend, the Reds and the London occupy the top two spots in the league standings at this point of the season, with six points each.

The Gunners recorded a 2-1 victory over Burnley on Saturday, and Unai Emery turned his attention towards the upcoming clash against the Reds after the match. 

"For us, we don't want to play against Liverpool ever," he jokingly said, as per Sky Sports.

"We'd prefer not to play against them. That is really our challenge, a really good test. For the supporters, for all of us, going there with six points is good.

"Really our target is to reduce the distance to Liverpool, Manchester City, Tottenham and Chelsea. When we play against them, it is a big challenge to show how we can be. Next week is going to be a very good match."

Liverpool beat Arsenal 5-1 in the corresponding fixture last season, but Emery is confident of an improved performance this time around. 

"We are going to prepare first with the adaptation to them, their game plan and individual players, and after to impose our game plan and capacity," he added.

"We are going to prepare both defensively and offensively. I think first is to be positive in our capacity and then work hard. I know my past is to work hard, the present and future is going to be the same.

"After we can win, we can lose. But, above all, is be positive and keep moving ahead."
