(Photos) Virgil van Dijk, Fabinho and Mohamed Salah pictured in training before Arsenal clash

Published

Liverpool don’t have easy opponents in their upcoming Premier League fixture. The Reds travel to the Emirates to face an Arsenal team that have won their previous 11 games before they drew against Crystal Palace.

The Reds are tied at the top of the Premier League table with Manchester City, and we cannot afford any slip-ups if we are to win the league.

Arsenal did play in midweek against Blackpool and have their injury concerns, while we went through the paces at Melwood.

Dejan Lovren and Mohamed Salah should feature in the tie against the Gunners. Salah scored in our last game while he also assisted a pair of goals in the win over Cardiff.

Another player that performed well was Fabinho. The Brazilian started our previous two games and could be in the starting XI when we take on the Gunners on Saturday.

James Milner hasn’t played every minute after the most recent international break, but the Englishman is one of our most consistent performances and could provide some experience in the line-up to face the home side.

Roberto Firmino was also going through the motions in training. The Brazilian didn’t score in the win over Cardiff, but he surely will have a huge role to play for us against Arsenal.

The Gunners have one of the best attacks in the Premier League, and Virgil van Dijk will have to be at his best on Saturday. We have conceded just four Premier League goals so far this season, and the Dutch defender would be interested in keeping another clean sheet.

Xherdan Shaqiri came off the bench to score in the 4-1 win over Cardiff. The Swiss sensation is slowly proving his quality for Liverpool and could do some damage to Arsenal at the weekend.

Daniel Sturridge Joe Gomez Liverpool training

A couple of other Englishmen who have done well this season are Joe Gomez and Daniel Sturridge. The defender could start as the right-back for Liverpool on Saturday, while Sturridge could come off the bench as an impact sub.

Arsenal vs Liverpool has always been one of the more exciting games in the Premier League, and we are certain there will be goals at the Emirates on Saturday.

Former Red believes Jose Mourinho could get sacked if Man United lose to Liverpool

Jamie Redknapp Liverpool

Former Liverpool star Jamie Redknapp believes that a loss for Manchester United against Liverpool will inevitably lead to Jose Mourinho’s sacking.

The two giants of Premier League football meet on Sunday, and the Reds are 16 points ahead of United after just 16 games this season.

Liverpool are the only unbeaten side in the Premier League and are giving Manchester City a run for their money in the race for the title.

The Reds know a win will keep them on top of the table while a loss for United could scupper their chances of a top-four finish.

Redknapp was speaking to Sky Sports (h/t Metro) and claims such games are huge for the supporters:

“These sorts of games are season-definers. They are the ones that fans wait for. If United win, it will be, ‘Wow, okay, we’ve got to give this guy more time. He can turn it around’.

“But if they lose it will become a situation where you have a snowball effect. The inquest will be so big afterwards and it might feel that it’s all becoming inevitable for Jose.”

The former Red claimed that losing to Manchester City would be acceptable as they are one of the best sides in the world but a loss to the Reds would be too much.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp responded the latest Jose Mourinho jibe where the Manchester United manager claimed that trophies are important.

The United manager was speaking ahead of our clash against the Red Devils, and Klopp was not going to have any of it.

The German claimed that anything less than a trophy would not be considered as a failure after our great start to the season (h/t Liverpool Echo).

“Do I have to? Do I have to win it?”

“People might remember that but what I have to do is make the best of the things the club is offering me – that is what I believe in.”

The manager also spoke about the Champions League ride last season, claiming it was brilliant, even if we didn’t win the title.

Klopp also claimed that life wouldn’t be great if it was only about doing the best all the time.

“I enjoyed it a lot. Going to the final was fantastic but in life – in all departments of life including your job – if only the best counts and effort doesn’t count then life is s***.

“You can do whatever you want but if I’m not as smart as Einstein or whatever, I can’t try a little bit? I will never be him.

“I love the challenge. Make the best of it. That is how I understand life, I learned it a little bit in football. In the end other people have to judge that.”

The manager is yet to win a trophy during his time at Liverpool, but came close by making it to three finals. Liverpool have made their best start ever in the club’s history, and lead the Premier League after 16 games.

Klopp could certainly make this season even better with a win over United on Sunday, a feat the German has never achieved in the Premier League.

Liverpool star claims this action against Napoli was similar to scoring a goal

Alisson

Alisson produced the moment of our Champions League campaign when he saved in the dying seconds from Arkadiusz Milik.

The save ensured Liverpool defeated Napoli in our final group game 1-0, and we can now think about the knockout rounds.

The Brazilian has been exceptional for us since signing from AS Roma, and the keeper spoke to the Times (h/t ESPN) claiming that the save almost felt like scoring a game-winning goal.

“A save at the end of the game is always great and you feel you have contributed to the game.

“Of course, an important save in the first minute is as important as a save in the last minute but for the fans it’s the closest thing to scoring a goal in the last minute, like we did in the derby against Everton.”

Alisson Liverpool

The former Roma keeper also thanked the teammates for helping secure the win.

“But I only managed to make that save with the help of my teammates’ contribution and thank God we got the victory.”

The next test for the Brazilian would be the clash against Manchester United. A win will keep us at the top of the table, and we need to put United to the sword on Sunday.
