Liverpool will be aiming to maintain their perfect start to the Premier League season, as they welcome Arsenal to Anfield on Monday evening.
After clinching the title in impressive fashion last season, all eyes were on whether the Reds could continue their outstanding form this time around, and it appears there is no slowing down the champions.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have already laid down a marker with their 2-0 win over Chelsea last weekend, adding to the first day 4-3 victory over Leeds.
The Reds host an Arsenal side enjoying a 100 percent record of their own, after two wins out of two to start the campaign.

Captain Jordan Henderson is already missing, although Joe Gomez has returned to fitness.
