Liverpool v Arsenal: match preview | Football

Two defeats to Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal – the last on penalties in the Community Shield – have left the champions “wanting to strike back” when they meet on Monday according to Jürgen Klopp. It will be the first of two opportunities to do so, with Anfield also hosting their Carabao Cup fourth-round meeting on Thursday. With Jordan Henderson unavailable and Fabinho potentially required in central defence, there could be a first start for the new signing Thiago Alcântara. Arteta admits his team will have to be at their absolute best to end Liverpool’s 60-game unbeaten run at Anfield. Andy Hunter
