After pushing aside the threat from the small club last Sunday, it was a win that could be considered a moral booster to the team, and also to the supporters. But the next game (3 enomours games to be precise) against Arsenal is not another small club. Arsenal is currently 3rd place after staying on the top for quite awhile and still far away for us to play catch up. Such is the faith that this time around we have to face them in the Champion League that sandwiched one league game in between. Thats make one hell of a week to both of the team. The confidence we have now, might dream to kick Arsenal 3 out of 3 games. Difficult but not impossible. Can be done, only if the players remember not to repeat the meltdown at Old Trafford, and Masherano definitely learned that outburst like he did during the game is very expensive not only to himself but the whole supporters of LFC around the globe.
Non of the two could be complacent thinking they have the superiority against each other. Arsenal has that flow and slickness in their games which is more suitable in Spain or Brazil with their skills and dancing on the pitch. Liverpool on the other hand, represent the gist of the English Premier League with its mix of die-hard players such as Gerrard and Carra, and superbly skill striker in Torres and a wall of stone midfielders in Masherano, Alonso and up & coming Lucas. If this 2 segments managed to stop the flow of Arsenal, we will win the game.
Against all odds, LFC will be facing Arsenal as the underdog. Most of the UK press hated us. The younger generation perceived us similar like we're listening to Duran-Duran and not Limb Biskitz! If we beat them, the perception might be altered. So be it.
