Liverpool vs Arsenal: Line-ups
Liverpool Looking For Revenge
The two clubs know each other inside out, then, and Liverpool will also know that Arsenal have had more success than most against them in recent times, winning the last Premier League meeting and taking the Community Shield on penalties.
Arsenal are winless in their last six top-flight meetings with the reigning champions and, even accounting for the big scalps they have taken recently, a trip to Anfield remains a daunting assignment for them.
Jurgen Klopp’s side haven’t necessarily been at their imperious best, but they’ve still taken six points from six in the league so far this season, defeating Leeds in a 4-3 thriller before outclassing Chelsea.
Arsenal have a number of injury problems themselves, but Kieran Tierney is expected to be fit after pulling out in the warm-up ahead of last weekend’s win over West Ham.
Liverpool’s record at Anfield is imperious and their attack is more than capable of slicing Arsenal apart, but the visitors also have plenty of goals in their armoury and can hurt the champions if given the sort of space afforded to Leeds.
