It has been almost two years since Arsene Wenger’s side won the Premier League title and it seems unlikely they will ever again be in the same position.
But a team like Liverpool, whose star players are so much more talented and experienced, will never be able to duplicate what Arsenal did in 2015.
In the Premier 1 of this season, Liverpool beat Arsenal 4-1, while last season the Gunners won 4-2 in a thrilling final.
And in the Premier Cup, the Reds took all three points from Arsenal in the first leg.
How is that possible?
Let’s start with the obvious.
Liverpool are a top team in terms of talent and, while they have only been to the top six once in their history, they are very, very good.
The biggest problem Liverpool had in the early stages of this campaign was that they played in a team with very little depth.
There was a constant battle for the left-back position.
And when you combine that with the fact that their team was very well equipped, Liverpool lacked the physical presence to dictate possession.
The Reds conceded goals on average of 17 per game.
But Liverpool were able to pick up some of the slack when Arsenal had a few players who played with flair.
They also scored many of their goals on set pieces, which made it easy for their opponents to counterattack.
The fact that Liverpool are playing in a top-heavy league does not necessarily mean they will always be able be so strong in the defensive department.
The best teams in Europe are able to dominate possession and are very difficult to break down, especially when the ball is on the ground.
So it’s a matter of when, not if, Liverpool are able take the title away from Arsenal.
The second problem Liverpool have with their chances to take the league title away is the level of quality in their opponents’ game.
Arsenal’s system is very different to Liverpool’s.
They don’t have the luxury of playing on the counter, and they don’t rely as much on crosses as Liverpool do.
They have more possession than Liverpool but that means they have to be patient to counter-attack.
In other words, Liverpool have to get used to being more clinical in their attacks, which makes them vulnerable to counterattacks.
In addition, the Premier league is a very defensive league.
There are players like Javier Mascherano who are able in the past to make passes through defenders who have the ball at their feet.
But when Liverpool have a man on the ball, they must be very careful about not getting caught out of position and losing possession.
And the team that does not possess a clear-cut number 10 is likely to be the team who scores most goals.
That is why the Reds are likely to struggle against Arsenal in terms in possession.
If Liverpool lose the title, they will be without the likes of Sadio Mane, Aaron Ramsey and Mario Balotelli, who are all injured.
They will be relying on players like Firmino, Sakho, Sako and Coutinho to provide the attacking flair, while Lucas Leiva will be hoping to help them with a pass to a striker who can score from the penalty spot.
And if Liverpool lose to Arsenal, it will be because they didn’t defend well enough.
But that is why Klopp has to be very happy.
The players who made the team have played with a high level of intensity.
The team has shown its strength and, as a result, the title is still in their hands.
They are also proving they are still very young, which is something Arsenal were not able to do last season.
Liverpool won the title last season but the way they defended has been questioned for some time.
Liverpool have had more chances to win it than any other team.
That has also given them an advantage over their opponents.
And they will have the support of Klopp’s team.
Liverpool’s first half against Arsenal was a success.
The home side started with a lot of possession, but the Reds did not lose the ball too easily and they won the first two rounds of the Premier.
But they lost the first game to Chelsea because of a penalty shoot-out.
They were able then to reverse that by winning the second game.
They now have the confidence to fight on.
The only thing that will prevent Liverpool from taking the title at the Emirates is the fact they will probably be without three of their stars.
That said, there are some good players who could be in contention to take a spot in the team.
The likes of Lucas Leivas and Sadio M’Vila have proven that they are ready to take big steps forward.
M’vena is one of the few players in the world who can play on the right wing and the 24-year-old has already scored 10 goals this season.
Coutinho could be the perfect replacement for Mascherana and Sakho.
He can play in a deeper position as well as the attacking midfielder position, but also has the defensive ability to defend. It’s a
