The only two teams with an 100 per cent record at the start of the new season meet at Anfield in the late kick-off on Saturday, meaning something has to give. Trips to Anfield haven’t been great for the Gunners of late, they’ve not tasted victory since 2012 and have conceded at least three goals on their last four visits. And there’s good news on the fitness front for the hosts ahead of the game. Centre-back Dejan Lovren is back in training.

The Croatia international has been absent from the Liverpool squad for the last two games because of illness as confirmed by manager Jurgen Klopp last week. “Why isn’t he here? It’s because he is ill,” the Reds boss said ahead of the UEFA Super Cup penalty shoot-out win over Chelsea. But it would appear that Lovren is over his illness and could be in contention to face the Gunners. He took part in a training session at Melwood on Tuesday as he looks to prove his fitness to Klopp.

Joe Gomez and Joel Matip are currently battling it out for the right to partner Virgil van Dijk at centre-back, so it’s likely that the one who misses out will take a seat on the bench.

If Lovren does indeed feature then he and the rest of the Liverpool defenders must heed the warning issued by Jamie Carragher about the Gunners’ firepower.

“When you think of Aubameyang, Lacazette, Pepe maybe coming on also,” he said. “When I say Liverpool have got away with it, the quality of the opposition hasn’t been top class, and I said it after the Norwich game, if they were playing a top team today, they wouldn’t have won.

“But the quality Arsenal have, if Liverpool get caught in those positions and don’t run back they’re going to have major problems within the game. “Of course, Liverpool are going to cause big problems going the other way I have no doubt about that, but the chances, the shots on goal they’re allowing at this moment, better quality teams, better quality strikers are going to make Liverpool pay.
