James Milner is expecting a tough test against Arsenal when Liverpool travel to the Emirates on Monday night.
The Scousers new addition, who is already their vice-captain, was speaking to the press after the reds were more than a touch fortunate to leave Anfield with all three points against Premiership rookies, Bournemouth.
Quite frankly, the Cherries were robbed blind in Liverpool on Monday night; a perfectly good goal ruled out, a clear offside goal against them allowed to stand and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Skrtel who was allowed to haul players to the ground in that manner that he loves so much inside the box.
Liverpool may have six points on the board from six games but they have hardly impressed in their opening two matches, however the same could be said of the Gunners who were woeful against West Ham and a touch fortunate against Palace at the weekend.
“We know there is a lot of room for improvement, players have come in and it will take time,” Milner told Sky Sports.
“We can’t ask for more than six points out of six.
“Arsenal next will be a tough match, they are a quality team.”
What was interesting to note after the full-time whistle on Monday night was the amount of panic on social media from Liverpool fans after their performance against Bournemouth.
Arsenal will know that they have to improve and that Liverpool will be more than up for the game at the Emirates and about the only thing that is certain at this point is that it will be a nerve-wracking game for both sets of fans.
Still expect us to do them.
