I think we can do it.‘First of all, he [Pepe] speaks French so it will be easy for him to settle in and play with us. He only started training with us a few weeks ago but it’s good to have him with us. He’s started well.‘Last season he was amazing. He’ll bring us speed and excellent finishing, and that’s good for us.‘As we’ve seen from last season, Liverpool play with three up front and they play very well. Why not us? I think we can do it.‘It will be a tough game against them. They are great players. They always try to go forward and try to get goals and assist each other. They are one of the best trios in the world.‘I see a lot of similarities. Pepe and me, we are quick players like Mane and Salah, while Laca is a player who can keep the ball and is really good with his feet like Firmino.‘So yes, we can say we are close enough.’More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?
