Liverpool ready to add to Arsenal woes

"It is the first game we lost since the beginning of April and we feel we should have largely won this game".

The Reds' comprehensive attacking display against Hoffenheim on Wednesday saw them comfortably into the Champions League Group Stages, thanks to goals from Firmino and Salah, as well as two from Emre Can.

What do you make of the Gunners boss' stance on wanting to hold on to Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil? "I still believe that there will be more and more to come".

"We'll probably send people there and watch them; we can get enough games of theirs, that's not a problem in the world of football".

Liverpool finished in fourth place last season and manager Jurgen Klopp has brought in Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah, Domimic Solanke and Scottish defender Andy Robertson to improve his squad.

After their opening weekend draw with Watford, Liverpool have reeled off three successive victories in all competitions to prove they can thrive without injured Barcelona target Philippe Coutinho.

He's found the back of the net 10 times, with his latest efforts - a brace against Hoffenheim - ensuring the Reds comfortably made this season's Champions League group phase.

Sadio Mane has had a hand in five goals in his five previous Premier League starts against Arsenal (three goals and two assists).


Lacazette joined Arsenal this summer from Lyon as part of a club-record deal that could eventually be worth £53million. "He has defended 500 per cent more already than he did in the whole of last season".

It means he averages a goal every 109 minutes, with Mane's goals coming every 199 minutes over the same period.

Arsenal will also get Laurent Koscielny back at Anfield after a suspension to boost the defence after two rocky showings in the 4-3 win over Leicester and the 1-0 loss at Stoke.

The former Real Madrid playmaker has just one year left on his contract at the Emirates Stadium and does not seem to be close to penning fresh terms. It has been a sorry tale since then, with a return of seven defeats and five draws.

Last season Liverpool took 20 points from their matches against Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal - more than any other club.

But Klopp has told the Liverpool Echo ahead of Sunday's game against Arsenal that no such move is on the cards for any of his attackers.

"He is a big, big manager in the history of the Premier League - and football - and he has all the power he still needs".

He scored 13 Premier League goals in 27 games last season, and has started the 2017/18 campaign with a bang, scoring in both the Premier League games so far.
