Former Arsenal player Kolo Toure returns to the Emirates Stadium this weekend and has admitted he has a point to prove against his former employers.

The Ivorian made over 300 appearances for the Emirates Stadium outfit, before leaving the capital in a summer move, which took him to Manchester City.

Liverpool go head to head with the league leaders on Saturday and although Toure holds no grudges against the Gunners, he believes he has a point to prove.

The central defender told The Mirror: “It's always special to go back there but at the same time, I want to show on Saturday that Arsenal made a mistake by letting me go.

"I'll definitely try to do my best to show them that I'm still a great player."

The 32-year-old will have fond memories of his time in north London, being one of the players that helped Arsenal to 49 league games without defeat and winning five trophies during his time at the club.

The older brother of Yaya Toure, praised the fine start Arsenal have had this season but believes Anfield’s latest strike force will provide a real threat against his former side.

“Arsenal have started the season really well and they have always been a good team. But Luis and Daniel are amazing players and there is a great understanding between them.

"I wouldn't fancy marking them. When you have players like that in the squad, it makes you even better.”

Liverpool only trail Arsenal by two points in the Premier League and will be confident of continuing their sensational goalscoring form after the Gunners lost their last two home games, against Borussia Dortmund and Chelsea.
