Mikel Arteta eyes historic Anfield win against Liverpool


Arenal manager Mikel Arteta has acknowledged the significance of breaking a league winless streak at Anfield that dates back to September 2012. 

Despite celebrating four years as Arsenal manager this week and achieving notable victories at other top clubs, Arteta emphasizes the importance of dominating challenging venues like Anfield to compete at the highest level.

Reflecting on past successes at Old Trafford, Stamford Bridge, and against Manchester City this season, Arteta expresses the team’s determination to overcome historical obstacles at Anfield. 

“We have done it at Old Trafford, we have done it at Stamford Bridge and many other places where we haven’t done it for years,” he said on Friday.

“This is the next challenge — go there and win. If you want to be at the top you have to go to those places and be dominant. That’s what we’re going to try to do,” he said

Arteta acknowledges the upcoming match’s intensity and the strength of both teams, emphasizing the need to play better than the opponent. 

“It’s going to be a great atmosphere,” said Arteta.

“The two teams are in a really good moment, really good position, really strong position. They are going to be well placed to win it and to go for it. It’s going to be an intense match.

“You have to play better than them. You will silence the crowd if you are dominant and better than them.”

Arteta acknowledges areas for improvement, particularly in defense, and emphasizes the significance of capitalizing on opportunities to secure victory.
