Manchester City take on Southampton on Sunday and you'd expect them to win, but even if they do Pep Guardiola's side will only go two points above Liverpool and that keeps the Reds well within touching distance of last season's winners.
Arsenal have won more points from losing positions, eight, than any other team in the Premier League this season and while they have not led at half-time in any of their league games, they have scored 19 goals after the break - more than any other side.
But Emery is determined to start a new trend as Arsenal try to extend their 13-game unbeaten streak in all competitions.
But Emery spoke in the build-up to this contest about wanting to write a new history for Arsenal and in this fixture there were signs his players are embracing the new era, which will have been a pleasant birthday treat for their boss. "The new history is in the present", he told a news conference on Friday.
"These two matches are so far and also they are so near, so close", he added.
Arsenal were vibrant and ambitious going forward and tighter than usual at the back, but Liverpool also underlined why they believe they can end the club's 29-year wait for the title this season. For us it is very important we continued our process and our way.
Nacho Monreal (hamstring), Sead Kolasinac (hamstring), Hector Bellerin (muscle) and Sokratis (ankle) will face late fitness tests. However, the scorelines, especially the Cardiff one, are slightly flattering as there were periods in the game last weekend that showed that despite the results, this Liverpool attack is not yet functioning like it was doing last season.

OnePlus has monkey-wrenched a sheet of Gorilla Glass 6 onto the screen, potentially making it harder to shatter than usual. Interestingly, Nelson also vigorously scratched the in-display fingerprint sensor, but that did not affect it at all.
No team will be able to completely contain Liverpool's high-powered attack for 90 minutes but Milner's opener still felt a bit unnecessary. A minute's silence will be observed before kick-off at the Cardiff City Stadium and players will wear black armbands in Vichai's honour. "We will wait on full-back. Two is [to stop them] developing a lot with the goalkeeper, because they build up with Allison. and they can progress on the pitch with quality starting with Allison", he said.
This was arguably Arsenal's most impressive - and encouraging - performance under Unai Emery.
"I think before I came here, Arsenal was already one family".
Emery, then in charge at Sevilla, got the better of Klopp in the final in Basel, with his side coming from behind to win 3-1, and subsequently won the French league title with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).
"Their development was to last season play the final in the Champions League".
"All people in football knew how good he is but I am not sure all Arsenal fans were over the moon at first when they heard it would be Emery", said Klopp. "Now, for us, it's a good, big example of how you can improve also in your way".
