Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp has warned his players not to underestimate Arsenal this weekend despite the record being set in the north of the London club against their top-6 rivals.
Unai Emery began his tenure as Arsenal boss with successive defeats by Manchester City and Chelsea, but has since experienced a major turnaround in form.
For Klopp, Arsenal's form at the start of the season is no cause for concern, as he insisted at his press conference on Friday that "no one gave them a present".
Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp insists that Arsenal should not be taken lightly
Unai Emery's team are in good shape but they started with losses to Man City and Chelsea
"Unai Emery had the great task of coming to Arsene Wenger after more than 50 years. And so he was brilliant, "Klopp told the reporters.
"After a hard start, they started the impressive run and that's the way it is. I hope they are not in there anymore (after this weekend). It will certainly be a very interesting game. They are well organized, have a clear plan and are good at counterattacking.
"What they do quickly is excellent. It's a tough game and nobody gave them a present. They had to work for it and they deserve it, so we have to be sure.
"They played the tough games in an impressive way and all won the Crystal Palace game they could have won, as they played two or three months ago is not important, of course they are a threat to everyone."
Arsenal want to win again after the draw at the Crystal Palace, but Liverpool is traveling in the free mood to the capital, after he has left four of Cardiff City behind.

Klopp's team is currently in second place just because of goal difference behind Manchester City, and he does not want to lose ground to the defending champion.
"So far, so good" was his message when he was questioned after 10 games to his assessment, but it remains at the beginning of the season to make judgments.
"My big, big, big rating is so good, a quarter of the season is nothing," he said.
"It's still three quarters ahead of us, so it's only the beginning. Football is played very well in many games. We stuck to our plan and still try. As long as the boys are fit, we have a really good football team. If you have a good football team and you play for a huge club like Liverpool, go into any game with a big chance and a big desire to win it.
"We want to do it together. It's just the beginning, but the beginning is good. I do not think it could be much better. Let's move on, keep going and play the best football you can play. "
