Liverpool

Last updated: Sun 25 August 2019 15:22
In Brief

Despite absence of clean sheets still made perfect start to season. Clyne, Keita and Alisson sidelined. Lovren doubtful.

Looking Back

Liverpool hardly convincing 2:1 winners on visit to Southampton, but job done in what was busy week for Reds and that was all that mattered. Mane and Firmino best players on pitch and fittingly they scored the 2 goals.

After 2 full seasons without home defeat in Premier League confidence naturally very high every time players step on grass of Anfield.

Looking Ahead

Coach Klopp set to make changes, with his selection last weekend influenced by extortions in midweek in Istanbul. Now Fabinho and Henderson should be amongst starters again.

Clyne, Keita and Alisson are out injured, while Lovren doubtful. He is heavily linked with move abroad too.

Points of Interest

Enjoying eight-game unbeaten run in this fixture (4 wins and 4 draws). Won last 3 at home.

Arsenal

Last updated: Sun 25 August 2019 15:22
In Brief

Opened campaign with back-to-back wins. Tierney, Bellerin, Mavropanos and Holding sidelined. Xhaka and Ozil available and travelling. Mustafi close to leaving.

Looking Back

Deserved 2:1 home winners vs. Burnley and with maximum points Gunners are showing great maturity so far.

Aubameyang starting new season where he left off at end of last, with Gabonese forward on the scoresheet in both games played.

If a team cam match the forward firepower of Liverpool and Man City at least on paper it is definitely Arsenal.

Looking Ahead

Coach Emery could give his big summer signing Pepe his full debut in this one and this will make the front 3 looking really ominous and full of goals.

Options in defence limited with 4 players from that area out injured, plus Mustafi not used in first 2 games as he wants move back to Europe.

Xhaka started week nursing muscle strain, but tested warrior able to recover on time. Ozil also overcame minor illness quickly and making the trip.

Points of Interest

Last time season started with three-game unbeaten run was 2014/15 campaign.
