Aaron Ramsey has warned Arsenal to expect a stern test when the Gunners host Liverpool at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

Brendan Rodgers’ side are currently in third place in the Premier League table, just two points behind leaders Arsenal, after an impressive start to the season for both teams.

And midfielder Ramsey is convinced that the Merseysiders, who finished seventh last season, have turned a corner under Rodgers this term.

“Brendan Rodgers has finally got them playing his style of football, all the players are now on board with him,” Ramsey told talkSPORT.

“He was very successful at Swansea and with the strike force they have in [Luis] Suarez and [Daniel] Sturridge they will be a threat to anybody.”

Ramsey is confident that Arsenal will bounce back from their midweek defeat by Chelsea in the League Cup on Tuesday with a positive result against the Reds in north London.

He added: “We are still very confident after the bad results against Dortmund and Chelsea but in the league we’re still on a good run and playing some good stuff.

“We have a run of tough games coming up but you can’t say this will determine where we’ll end up this season.”
