Jurgen Klopp’s Reds host Arsenal this Saturday.
Arsenal head coach Unai Emery joked that he would rather face another side instead of Liverpool this weekend.
Speaking ahead of the Gunners’ Saturday trip to Anfield, Emery insisted that his side would be positive when they take on Jurgen Klopp’s Reds as he acknowledged that the match on Merseyside will be a good test.
Liverpool top the Premier League table after beating Norwich and Southampton in their opening two games, while Arsenal are second following wins over Newcastle and Burnley.
"For us we don't want to play against Liverpool ever," the Spaniard joked after their 2-1 triumph over Burnley on Saturday as talkSPORT quoted. "We'd prefer not to play against them.
"That is really our challenge, a really good test. For the supporters, for all of us, going there with six points is good.
"Really our target is to reduce the distance to Liverpool, Manchester City, Tottenham and Chelsea.
"When we play against them it is a big challenge to show how we can be. Next week is going to be a very good match."
