Mikel Arteta played ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ to his Arsenal players to get them ready for a trip to Anfield, and you can see the moment from the All or Nothing docuseries in the video below.

Playing against Liverpool isn’t easy for anyone really, no matter where you’re playing them, as even Premier League champions Manchester City found out at Wembley last Saturday.

Last season Arteta decided to try and get his team ready for the trip to Merseyside, last November, by blaring the famous ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ over speakers during training.

Arteta makes sure his assistant know the plan and they can be seen turning up the volume during the session, as players try to get used to the noise.

No amount of speakers could make up for the difference in quality both on the pitch, between the players, and in the dugouts, between the managers.

Klopp’s side came out on top of Arteta’s team, winning 4-0 thanks to goals from Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota, Mohamed Salah and Takumi Minamino.

“So Mikel tried to prepare it as much as he could and his idea was to bring speakers and create a bit of chaos during training so the players needed to adapt straight away.

“It’s good also for the players to have something different in training and also for this in your mind. They will be there, they will be loud, but we still need to do our job.”

It will come out on Amazon Prime Video on Thursday, just one day before the north London side get the season underway against Crystal Palace.

The Gunners opened the previous Premier League campaign with a loss to newly promoted Brentford last year and will be hoping to get a better start to things this time around.
