Arsenal boss wrong with Liverpool transfer taunt?

As if the Premier League clash between Arsenal and Liverpool at the Emirates tonight was not already going to be hard fought enough, Arsene Wenger has ensured that Brendan Rodgers will be desperate for his players to get one over on us.

The Arsenal boss has chosen to have his say on the Raheem Sterling transfer saga and he has made it crystal clear, as reported by the Daily Mail, that he is on the side of the young England international.

Are Arsenal really up against Alexis mark II on Sunday?

We know that the Arsenal and Chile international star Alexis Sanchez was wanted by Brendan Rodgers to fill the hole in the Liverpool attack left by the transfer of Luis Suarez to Barcelona in the summer. And we also know that the player he did sign, Mario Balotelli, has failed spectacularly to do the job.

But Rodgers has now claimed that he does have a player like our new Arsenal forward after all, in the tiny shape of Raheem Sterling. Perhaps the Anfield boss is trying to get the Gunners worried about what we will face on Sunday, but he has compared Sterling in his new role to Alexis, as reported by the Daily Express.
