Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp reveals Mohamed Salah battling wrist injury

Alexandre Lacazette's late goal earned Arsenal a 1-1 draw with Liverpool on Saturday and stopped the visitors moving three points clear at the top of the Premier League. Mane was in an offside position when Trent Alexander-Arnold delivered the ball to the idle, but the fact that the flag didn't go up then suggests he wasn't deemed to be interfering.

But this game will be the first time they have come up against a "big six" rival since the back-to-back defeats against Manchester City and Chelsea at the start of the season.

I don't think there is any reason to try to do something really big like bring in another striker.

It is to Emery's credit that his changes have often impacted the game positively for his side, and that Arsenal only trail league leaders City and Liverpool by four points heading into this weekend.

A point certainly felt well deserved and Arsenal easily could have scored more if they had been sharper in front of goal. Even though Liverpool faced champions Manchester City earlier this season which ended in a tight 0-0 draw at Anfield, former Red Jan Molby believes that Arsenal will be the toughest test for Liverpool so far.

"If a new manager comes in - it was the same with me here - all players are immediately out of their comfort zone".

"There is only one thing I know, work".

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed the club's plan for the upcoming January transfer window.

"A smile is better when you win".

Jurgen Klopp has taken nearly three years to find the right blend between attack and defence despite reaching two European finals with Liverpool, one of which he lost to Emery's Sevilla in the Europa League two years ago.

There has been an astonishing average of 5.4 goals per game between these two sides in their last five meetings, but Liverpool have tended to come out on top and that looks like the safest bet again this weekend.

"A point at Arsenal will always be an absolutely good result, so we take that and move on".

"We are not compact enough", Klopp said. If they play on Friday and we play on Sunday then for two days you think about the pressure being more on us. But the spirit is like we want. We need this quality in every match.

"The progress takes time, a long time in football is very hard to demand".

"The gap between Liverpool and Manchester City was big a year ago, so to overcome this gap you must be really strong and consistent and so far they're doing so well".
