PICTURE: Liverpool fans jab Arsenal's lack of trophies ahead of weekend fixture

Liverpool Anfield Road Paisley Gateway

Liverpool supporters have kicked off the trash talking between themselves and Arsenal fans with a jab at the Gunners lack of trophies.

Liverpool and Arsenal supporters had quite a difference of opinion over the summer, as the two clubs went toe to toe over the future of Luis Suarez.

Arsenal had a £40 million - plus £1 - bid turned down as they attempted to trigger a release clause unsuccessfully.

Suarez ended up staying at Liverpool, and is braced to lead the line for the club when they visit Arsenal this weekend. Surely it's inevitable he will score?

The two clubs are both flying high at the top of the Premier League, in first and third, and it could be pivotal game for both sides, who were not tipped by most pundits to be in this position early on in the season.

The stakes are high, and so the trash talking and mickey taking between the two clubs is kicking off.

Popular Liverpool publication the Kop Magazine, posted a photo on Twitter on Wednesday night taking a swipe at Arsenal's lack of trophies. They have not won any since 2005, with Liverpool winning the FA Cup and League Cup since then, the most recent coming in 2011. 

Arsenal crashed out of the League Cup earlier this week, a competition Liverpool had already been eliminated from. 

Do Liverpool fans have a recent record to back up such trophy taunts? Let us know your views...
