Lukas Podolski: Liverpool are the toughest team we have faced this season

Lukas Podolski 3 Germany

Arsenal star says Liverpool are the toughest team he has faced this campaign and deserve their top spot.

Arsenal star Lukas Podolski was understandably feeling positive yesterday after his two goal brace against West Ham.

Not only that, but he stayed on the pitch for 90 minutes - a rarity under Arsene Wenger, just the second time in the Premier League this season.

The German subsequently decided to hold a Twitter question and answer session with his fans, where he revealed his opinion that Liverpool are the toughest team Arsenal have faced all season.

Podolski missed the 2-0 win over Everton early in the season through injury, but played 30 minutes as a substitute as the Gunners were thumped 5-1 at Anfield.

He did however go onto score the winning goal against the Reds a week later in the FA Cup, but his memories of the heavy defeat clearly live on.

Podolski was also quizzed about his all time favourite Arsenal stars, responding with a nod to arguably the most popular strike duo in their history.
