In the early morning of September 29th, Beijing time, in the third round of the Premier League, Arsenal will play against Liverpool. The two teams that have won the first two rounds will face each other head-on. The Gunners will attack the team for the first time in the past 16 years.
In the first two rounds of the Premier League, Arsenal defeated two London teams, Fulham and West Ham United, and won the opening two-game winning streak, while defending champion Liverpool defeated Leeds United and Chelsea, also winning both games.
In this campaign, the two teams directly confronted, Arsenal will attack the team for the first time in the past 16 years to start the Premier League with three consecutive victories.
The Gunners won the league's first three consecutive victories at one time and can be traced back to the 2004/05 season. That season, Arsenal won the Premier League's first five consecutive victories under Wenger's leadership, and finally won the Premier League runner-up with 83 points.
In addition, if Arsenal win this campaign, Arteta will become the first Gunners coach to lead his team to victory in the first game in Liverpool since Tom Whittaker in 1947.
