Better than Sanchez: This Liverpool ace will tear fragile Arsenal to shreds
COMMENT by Amir Mir
Fragile, weak and simply not up to the fight. That has been the story of Arsenal in recent years and has been a common theme during their away fixtures this season.
The Gunners have shown signs of mental weakness away at Everton, Manchester City, Chelsea and most recently in Germany against Bayern Munich.
Either an inability to hold onto a lead, show fight when on the floor or simply crumble during the second half of those matches.
Now, they will travel to Anfield on Saturday afternoon to take on fellow Champions League chasers Liverpool for what will be another stern test for Arsene Wenger’s side.
Unfortunately for them, Reds ace Sadio Mane will target their weakness and tear them to shreds.

The 24-year-old has already proven this when he scored on the first day of the season against the Gunners, a match Jurgen Klopp’s side won 4-3.
His pace, powerful runs out wide and directness will be too much to handle for an Arsenal team that will be searching for all three points.
The away team will no doubt look to play expansive football, which in tune will leave space in behind for the likes of Mane to exploit.
Gunners ace Alexis Sanchez will once again be the main man for Wenger, but just like the previous away games this season, his hard work and quality on the ball will once again fall through the roof because of the ineptness of his teammates.
It won’t be a surprise if Mane does outperform the Chilean and help secure a valuable three points for his side.
In other Arsenal news, Olivier Giroud has stated that he wants this proven ace at the club next season.
