Jurgen Klopp and Mikel Arteta face off on Monday night as both managers will aim to continue their perfect starts to the season.

Liverpool were given a scare in their opening Premier League fixture against Leeds before beating top-four rivals Chelsea last weekend.

Arsenal also boast of unbeaten record having beat Fulham 3-0 and and West Ham 2-1 to the in their first two games.

Kop bloss Klopp faces an injury crisis after Thiago Alcantara and Alisson missed training this week, while Arteta could welcome back Kieran Tierney.

In August of last year, the encounter ended in a 3-1 win for Jurgen Klopp’s side but the final scoreline could easily have been worse for Arsenal.

This year, however, with Mikel Arteta in charge after replacing Unai Emery, Arsenal head into the game believing that they are on an upward trajectory.

The most recent meeting between the two sides, in the Community Shield last month, ended in a penalty shootout win for the Gunners.

Aubameyang, so deadly at the end of last season, has continued to impress in the new one, following up his goal in the Community Shield with another in the opening day win over Fulham, then providing an assist against West Ham.

Alexandre Lacazette, meanwhile, has scored two in two and so has Eddie Nketiah.

Liverpool will have to be wary of Arsenal’s attacking threat but they remain considerable favourites to win the game.

Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane have started the season in explosive form and they now have added support from new signings Diogo Jota and Thiago Alcantara.

The match kicks off at 10PM at Anfield.
