Beating Liverpool will prove Arsenal title credentials, says Gibbs

Arsenal fullback Kieran Gibbs says they can prove their title credentials with victory at Liverpool.

Gibbs, who helped Arsene Wenger's men beat Liverpool at the Emirates in October, also says it will prove that they can last the distance at the top of the Premier League.

Gibbs said: "I think it would make a big statement if we won there - just like it did when we played Liverpool at home.

"Before that game, we had not played any big games and although we were sitting at the top of the league, people were saying, 'There's a big game coming now, that will put it into perspective.'

"It will be like that again because we have got a lot of big games coming up, so it will be another test. As the weeks go on, we are just going to be put under a bigger and bigger test.

"It is not often you get to play Manchester United, Liverpool and Bayern Munich, twice, in less than two weeks. So it will be great to be a part of it - playing against the best teams in the world.

"Everyone enjoys the big games and this is just another big game to show what we can go and do."
