Martin Keown Pinpoints The One Liverpool Player That Arsenal’s Frontline Should Look To Exploit

Liverpool's unbeaten start will be put to the test against Arsenal

Arsenal and Liverpool lock horns at the Emirates on Saturday evening in what promises to be an enthralling encounter in the capital.

4th-placed Arsenal have swatted away a stuttering start to the season and gone on to accumulate 22 points from their last 10 matches, meaning they can narrow the gap between themselves and 2nd-placed Liverpool to just one point this weekend, should they be victorious on home soil tonight.

Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown, who faced Liverpool numerous times during his own playing days, has revealed the one Reds player that Arsenal’s in-form frontline should target during the match.

“Arsenal have pace in attack with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who should be asking questions of Liverpool left back Andrew Robertson,” said Keown.

"I have seen him tested when playing for Scotland and it could be an area Aubameyang and Alex Iwobi try to exploit.”

The comments will inevitably anger Liverpool fans who have watched Robertson blossom into arguably one of the best left-backs in the Premier League.

The Scot has featured in nine of Liverpool’s 10 league games so far this term, with the club keeping an impressive six clean sheets in those matches.

However, Robertson did not feature in the 4-1 victory over Cardiff City last time out, and it’s not yet known whether he will regain his place against Arsenal.

While Liverpool’s measly defence has only conceded four goals this term, they will no doubt face a stern test against an Arsenal side that have scored in each of their last 14 games in all competitions, while the Gunners have won 11 of their last 13 home matches in the league.
