Arsenal are on an incredible Premier League run with seven wins from 8 matches. They only lost to Manchester United at Old Trafford.

The Gunners brushed aside 10-man Tottenham at the Emirates to build on their winning run in the race to win the season title.

Despite the victory over Spurs in the North London Derby, there are still skirmishes in the Gunners’ brilliant pull this season – a loss to a struggling Manchester United means Arteta have to do more.

The Liverpool game will be another chance for Arteta to convince doubting pundits that the Gunners are ready to challenge for the Premier League title.
