Arsenal boss says Liverpool are dangerous

Liverpool have won the plaudits from many this season as a result of some excellent attacking displays.

Speaking ahead of Liverpool’s home game against Swansea City this weekend, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers believes his side are already playing at a Champions League level.

The Reds currently lie in fourth spot in the Premier League, four points off leaders Chelsea and three points, ahead of Tottenham in fifth.

Despite being closer to fifth than top spot, the Reds are definitely looking upwards, as a run of five wins and two draws over the last seven games have seen them edge closer to the Premier League summit.

A key reason for Liverpool’s success this season has been the formidable striking partnership of Sturridge and Suarez and their excellent attacking displays. During the calendar year 2013, Rodgers and his men fell just short of reaching a milestone 100 goals in all competitions.

Since the turn of the year, Liverpool have also scored in every game, notching up 27 goals in 10 – including a 5-1 drubbing of Arsenal in front of a delighted Anfield crowd.

Arsenal, of course, managed to obtain their revenge by beating Liverpool 2-1 in the FA Cup at the Emirates last weekend, but it was no walk in the park, as Liverpool carved open the Arsenal defence on many occasions and peppered Lukasz Fabianski’s goal with a number of shots.

Liverpool’s frightening attacking displays have not gone unnoticed this season, and Rodgers has now revealed what Gunners boss Arsene Wenger had told him after their most recent meeting.

The Daily Mail quotes Rodgers: 'I spoke to Arsene after the game. He and his staff said they felt we were the most dangerous attacking team they had played all season, which is a great compliment when you think of some of the games they have played in'.

Wenger’s compliments should be well-received by the Liverpool faithful, as Arsenal have come up against some fantastic teams this season – including Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City.

As Liverpool’s remaining fixtures at Anfield include visits from both Chelsea and Manchester City, their attacking prowess could still lead the club to a long-awaited first Premier League title.
