Arsenal, who play Liverpool tomorrow at Anfield, have been the title-winning side in the 2003-04 season and went the entire season without losing.

“At the moment they are doing and they can do it,” Emery said of Liverpool. “They are doing it at the moment. We played three years ago in the Europa League final with Sevilla against Liverpool and we beat them.”
“But look at the process and it’s a very good example for us.”
“The progression is clear: they were out of the Champions League and they are an example for us at Arsenal now.”
“We need to be demanding of ourselves but we need time and patience is very important.”
The North London side drew 1-1 with Liverpool at the Emirates in early November.
“For us it is a big challenge and a good test of who we are and the difference between them and us.”

Emery added: “First, they are usually feeling very high in their stadium with their supporters. Also, the atmosphere is one point more for them.”
“But we have players who have the habit of playing in big matches, also in Liverpool, and we know it is difficult for us but for me, it is a very big test, I have big motivation and I am looking forward to our response against them.”
“Also, after finishing the first half of the season, we are in a good position with the points, 38, not very good but it is good and with the difference to the other teams.”
“They are doing this difference and we need to do our process in the second half of the season to improve and to take a big performance little by little to shorten the difference between them and us.”
