Liverpool are perfectly set up to exploit Arsenal’s first-half sluggishness

It's what you do on the training it's a pity that it didn't count.

"Want him to lay some golden eggs as well do you".

Chelsea have won seven and drawn three of their top-flight games so far this season and now sit third in the table, two points behind table-topping Manchester City and second place Liverpool.

On Saturday, Liverpool travel to Emirates Stadium in London to take on Arsenal in exactly one such encounter. That's why I say so far, so good.

Liverpool had netted at least three goals in their last five games against Arsenal, but forwards Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah were kept off the scoresheet.

"It was always hard against Arsenal (before today), it was very spectacular, today was no less spectacular just with less goals than last season". Liverpool have never done this in six consecutive top-flight games against any opponent and Arsenal have not had any opponent achieve this feat against them in the top-flight ever.

What is the difference this season? "But I believe in our team and our players".

By that stage, Unai Emery had introduced forward Danny Welbeck and creative midfielders Aaron Ramsey and Alex Iwobi to supplement an attack of Mesut Ozil and Lacazette, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang having made way.

He always demands more and you only have to look at what Pep Guardiola has done at Manchester City to see what success that can bring when you are dealing with talented players. "Every day we need to be very, very prepared for each match".

Former manager Wenger was often criticised for failing to replace underperforming players and for waiting until the mid-way point of the second half to make any changes whatsoever. Today is one test, how we are against a team like Liverpool.

"You need a little luck in some moments in the match and when we are attacking we need to find our goal".

Lovren has been an automatic starter throughout most of the German head coach's three-season spell in charge of the Merseyside outfit. They want to win the league.

With Fabinho coming to the fore, Georginio Wijnaldum playing the best football of his career and Naby Keita yet to kick on at Liverpool, Klopp's midfield is actually a lot stronger than many care to admit. Sokratis Papastahopoulos and Konstantinos Mavropanos are also injury doubts, meaning Shkodran Mustafi and Rob Holding are set to get the nod in the heart of the defence. The Brazilian's next goal might be around the corner and he surely would like to get into the record books by scoring one more goal-assist double. "That's football. If he thought the first situation was offside then I think he was wrong", Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp told BT Sport.
