The biggest game of the Premier Leagues opening weekend takes place at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday when Arsenal host Liverpool. Air Max 90 Sale Usa .Arsene Wengers Arsenal will be targeting their first Premier League title in 13 years this season after a summer of stability that is in stark contrast to many of the Gunners likely title rivals.We finished second last season and we have all the desire to improve as a team, so we know that we have to jump forward and continue to improve, Wenger said. There is anxiety because you want to do well and you know how important it is.Wenger likes the attitude his side has shown entering what is expected to be another demanding campaign.Maybe this season more than ever it looks like every club has new ambition so it promises to be a very exciting one and a very difficult one as well, he said. But I think we are focused, we have a huge desire in the squad, we are very ambitious and we are humble enough as well to know that it is difficult in every single game to win in the Premier League.Sundays visitors to north London, Liverpool, will also have aspirations of competing for the league title this season as the club continues to build under manager Jurgen Klopp. The German coach had moderate success in his first season at Anfield, steering Liverpool to an eighth-place finish, and emerged as one of the stand-out managers in the division.However, Klopp still has some way to go before achieving the legend status of the legendary Wenger, and spoke with admiration about the Frenchman in his pre-match media conference.Hes a legend, Klopp said of Wenger. Thats how it is. Becoming an Arsenal legend is not the most easy job in the world.I read today in the newspaper that Arsene said he will work as long as he is physically able to. Thats one plan for life! It shows how big his love is for the game and for the work he is doing. He is very experienced and a very good manager, so if we win it will not be because of him.It was a scoreless draw when these teams met at the Emirates last season, but the Gunners will be hard-pushed to keep a clean sheet this time around due to a string of injuries on defence.I believe Per Mertesacker is out for four months and Gabriel for six to eight weeks, Wenger revealed. Thats a bit better than expected because he doesnt need surgery. He ruptured his ankle ligament. At the start we thought it could be four months but he should be all right.Laurent Koscielny has also been ruled out, meaning that Wenger will be forced to pick an inexperienced central defencive pairing from the trio of Calum Chambers, Nacho Monreal and new signing Rob Holding.The Gunners are also missing Carl Jenkinson and Danny Welbeck with long-term injuries, while Jack Wilshere is a doubt with an ongoing knee problem.Liverpool have a number of absentees, with Lucas Leiva, Joe Gomez, Mamadou Sakho and Loris Karius out, and Dejan Lovren, James Milner and Daniel Sturridge facing late fitness tests.

Irving scored 23 points, Tristan Thompson had 20 points and 10 rebounds and the Cavaliers beat the Denver Nuggets 117-109 on Friday night. Tim Cahill may not start for Melbourne City in Wednesday nights FFA Cup quarter-final but Wanderers coach Tony Popovic remains just as concerned about how hell finish.Citys new recruit will make his first home appearance for City at AAMI Park, where coach John van `t Schip will likely field a far more experienced XI to the second-string line-up put to the sword 4-0 by Newcastle on the weekend.The Socceroos all-time leading goalscorer would be a potent weapon off the bench as he was in Australias recent World Cup qualifier against United Arab Emirates.Either way, Popovic is well aware of what his former Socceroos teammate is capable of.With Timmy in the side they will always be stronger, whether he starts or comes off the bench, Popovic said.Hes a quality player and hes proven that over the years.You can see he is still very determined to do well.Well show him the respect he deserves, but we are going to this game first and foremost to win because we want to get tto the semi-final.

A complete Wanderers squad enter the last eights only all A-League clash on the back of a successful tour of Japan.Popovic was encouraged by the early output of his new signings, including returned striker Kerem Bulut, Argentine midfielder Nicolas Martinez and Japanese midfielder Jumpei Kusukami.Despite being cautious of using pre-season hit-outs as a guide for A-League form, he felt his 2015-16 grand finalists were in better shape for round one than last September.Last year at this stage we had eight players who werent training who were injured, Popovic said.We didnt speak about that at that time, but thats what we were faced with.This year everyone is training - that is already an improvement.So we expect our fitness levels to be higher come round one and we hope that will help us with results early on.
