Arsenal win at Liverpool would be a big statement, says Gibbs
Kieran Gibbs believes that an Arsenal win at Liverpool on Saturday would be a "big statement" to their rivals
Kieran Gibbs believes that an Arsenal win at Liverpool on Saturday would send out a warning to the Gunners’ Premier League title rivals.
Arsene Wenger’s men travel to Anfield knowing that a victory would keep them at least two points clear at the top of the table.
We are having a positive season and we go there in a positive frame of mind
The north Londoners got the better of the Reds back in November, when Santi Cazorla and Aaron Ramsey handed Arsenal a 2-0 win at Emirates Stadium.
And defender Gibbs believes that another triumph over Brendan Rodgers’ men would underline Arsenal’s title credentials.
“Going up there and doing well would be a big statement, just like it was when we played them at home,” Gibbs told the Independent.
“We were sitting at the top of the league and people were saying, ‘Ah, well this is a big test’.
“It will be like that every time now. We are having a positive season and we go there in a positive frame of mind. It’s another exciting Premier League fixture.
“We have made a few impressions already this season but I don’t think it’s about that now. It’s about consistency. Going in as underdogs takes the pressure off. You saw that with Chelsea at City.
“But we are not looking at the odds. We are just looking to win it. There is a certain resilience in this squad at the moment. That is helping a lot.”
