Recent history suggests supporters can expect plenty of goals when Liverpool take on Arsenal this evening – but Simon Mignolet admits he’d settle for a lot less excitement if it meant the three points went to Jürgen Klopp’s side.
The teams have shared 16 strikes between them in their last three meetings alone at Anfield, and began this season with a seven-goal thriller at Emirates Stadium on the Premier League’s opening weekend.
Mignolet believes the attacking manner in which the rivals approach games is the reason for the high-scoring contests, but he’d happily take a 1-0 win for the Reds in a low-key affair if offered.
The goalkeeper told Liverpoolfc.com: “It is two teams who like to play football; teams who like to create chances and playing attacking [styles].
“Then, you’re always going to get some great games and great spectacles. I have been involved in a lot of games with a lot of goals against Arsenal. They’re always pretty good [games] against a good side, but let’s hope and try to get a victory again at Anfield.
