He maintained Liverpool's record of not losing a Premier League game after getting on the scoresheet.

Aaron Ramsey will be the man to make way as the Welshman has lost his first team place under Emery having been told he's free to leave Arsenal when his contract expires at the end of the season.

I think Liverpool will have a little bit too much for them but, even if Arsenal do lose, this has still been a very encouraging start by their new boss Unai Emery. But it's normal. The players, I like the players showing us character when we are not playing well. "Maybe their dropped points at Crystal Palace last weekend will have sharpened minds".

"The result is important but first I want to show everyone our best mentality in the game".

"It was hard enough to get the ball off them when they had 10 and we had 11".

Klopp said: "I think it was a goal, it should have been a goal".

The former Liverpool man turned is attention to City's debated closests challengers this season, stating: 'I hope Liverpool can make a proper race of it. They are a fabulous team and also have the capability to go through the season unbeaten - just imagine if the fixture at the Etihad was a draw and that actually happened - but it is going to be really hard for them to keep pace'.

Liverpool went top of the table with their draw away to Arsenal on Saturday, and the two title contenders appear destined to battle one another for the next seven months.

Hector Bellerin could be missing after picking up thigh injury, said Goal, while Granit Xhaka could be forced to continue at left-back if Nacho Monreal hasn't returned to fitness.

Arsenal are facing something of a crisis at the back for the visit of Liverpool's unsafe front three, with as many as seven defensive players sidelined.

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.

Jurgen Klopp is unbeaten in five league games against the Gunners.

We should see changes in the middle of defence with Sokratis expected to be recalled after being rested in the Carabao Cup while Rob Holding may come in for Shkodran Mustafi as the German has played in the last two matches.

"The second goal is a good move by them, then he has done his best to bounce it on the floor and kick it over the bar".

"It's a pity that it didn't count, we made a few more mistakes tonight than the ref, but it would have been nice if that goal counted".

"But the other games are important also". But we need this quality in every match.
