NOW IS A GOOD TIME TO PLAY ARSENAL

Liverpool play their opening game of the new season away to Arsenal at the Emerites stadium. Klopp's new look team will hope to get their campaign off to a good start against an always difficult opponent.

Wenger's side always finish in the top four every season, almost without fail and his long tenure in the job has ensured a fair degree of success despite his critics.

However, this opening weekend will see The Gunners with something of an injury crisis at the back. Gabriel Paulista could be out with an ankle injury while Per Mertesaker is already out.
Laurent Koscielny got an extended summer break as did Mesut Ozil, who also will not be fit to play against the Reds.


With Danny Welbeck out for the majority of next season, Arsenal’s current striker options are limited.
Olivier Giroud has been given three weeks off before he must report for training at the start of August, which leaves Theo Walcott and Chuba Akpom as the only available strikers for the start of the season.


Liverpool had a mixed pre-season with losses to Chelsea and Mainz and a ruthless 4-0 demolishing of Barcelona at Wembley.
Klopp is in the process of fashioning the team to his own liking and it has very much been a bedding-in process this Summer.

However, if Liverpool can play their high-tempo pressing game like they played against Barca last week, then a win is a definite possibility.

Sunday at Arsenal should be a great game with Klopp's highly motivated team and Wenger's injury-hit side. It all makes for a great chance of a Liverpool victory.
