How Arsenal could line up against Liverpool

Unai Emery's side lies at fourth sport just two points adrift of the third-placed Chelsea.

"We had a big influence on that game".

Arsenal have some major problems in the full-back department with Hector Bellerin likely to miss out with a muscle problem, while Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac are yet to return to full fitness after their injury layoffs. However, Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita will miss the clash against Arsenal as they continue their recovery from injury.Guinean footballer Keita picked up an injury during worldwide duty and Henderson is suffering from a hamstring injury, the midfield duo has not returned to return to full training. "Those two matches [against City and Chelsea], they are so far away, and also they are so near".

It was by no means an impressive collective performance from Arsenal and they shot themselves in the foot with Guendouzi's red card, yet after O'Connor's goal they generally - Cech's blunder aside - kept things tight.

- Liverpool are unbeaten in their opening 11 matches to a Premier League campaign for the first time since 2007-2008. Emery has been tasked with essentially emulating Klopp's success at the Emirates - turning a sixth-place Premier League finisher into a genuine title contender - and he's aware that he may need as much time as Klopp has been afforded.

As for Liverpool, they're still looking to win their first ever Premier League title but, somehow, have to get the better of an irresistible City side this season. Virgil (van Dijk) said to me after the game he should have had a hat-trick. "As long as the boys are fit, we have a really good football team". What also makes me think they will go unbeaten is the strength they have in depth.

Whether you put Arsenal in such a bracket is, I suppose, key to how you will bet in this one, but I suggest their attack is more than good enough to find the target. When Arsenal chase the game they throw everyone on the pitch which is really cool and we were not as compact as I wanted.

"It doesn't look like that will change".

"We have spoken. It is very important to control, but I don't think he lost control. He is a great manager in world football and he took charge of a great club with a lot of quality", Alisson said of the former Sevilla and PSG boss.

The veteran midfielder was all over the pitch for Liverpool and scored the Reds only goal during the game. We have to be ready, for sure.
