Arsenal starlet Carl Jenkinson is relishing the prospect of facing Liverpool and insists the club can make a huge “statement of intent” by registering their first victory of the season at Anfield.
The 20-year-old, who has been deputizing for the injured right back Bacary Sagna, impressed everyone with his performances in the opening two fixtures. The youngster is expecting a tough challenge from an ambitious Liverpool side and like his manager is hopeful of an entertaining open game.
Arsenal have made a stuttering start to their present campaign, with their first two matches ending in goal-less draws, and the youngster believes a victory at Merseyside will kick-start their season in the positive direction.
“Anfield is always a great place to play football, we’re all looking forward to it and we’re going for the three points,” he told Arsenal Player. “I was only on the bench last year, but the atmosphere and the stadium itself make it a special place.
“Liverpool are an ambitious club, and I am sure they will not sit back at Anfield looking to take a point. Hopefully it will be an open game and maybe that will be of benefit to us because it will open things up a bit.
The youngster added “It would be a huge statement of intent to win there. Liverpool are a big club but we are just focused on our own game, and hopefully we will execute as we need to and get the three points.”
Indeed, both the teams will be keen to earn their first three pointer of the season. While Liverpool will be enjoying the home support, Arsenal can take moral boost on the fact that they haven’t lost at Anfield since April 2008.
