Arsenal defender Sokratis: Liverpool easier than Burnley

Arsenal defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos insists they go to Liverpool on Saturday full of confidence.

Sokratis believes facing Jurgen Klopp's side - who offer a less physical approach than Burnley, which they beat on Saturday - could make it an easier afternoon.

"It was important because the other team played very good - not very good football but they play this style of game where every time they like to fight for second balls," he said about the win over Burnley.

"It was good, it was a hard game and an important three points. It is good because we go to the derbies with six points.

"It (playing Liverpool) is a different game. Maybe it is more easy, because you don't have to fight a lot - but they also play football. If they are on good day and you are having a bad day, it is hard."
