INJURY NEWS

Arsenal season and injury crisis go hand in hand but not many would have predicted the catastrophe to strike way before their season kicked off. Gabriel Paulista was stretchered off during the friendly against Manchester City which means he will be out of action for the season opener while Per Mertesacker is a notable absentee courtesy a knee injury. Danny Welbeck is out for at least 4 months while Ozil and Koscielny lack match fitness courtesy their respective EURO 2016 Campaign. Jack “Wheelchair” Wilshere remains a constant in the injury section.

Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp have their own set of injury woes to take care of as reds Vice-Captain James Milner remains a major doubt for the battle at Emirates. Talismanic forward Daniel “The Glass” Sturridge remains doubtful alongside Marko Grujic and new boy Joel Matip while Lucas, Sakho, Karius and Joe Gomez will be out of action for a considerable amount of time.

WHAT THE GAFFERS SAY

Wenger: “Everybody’s ambitious – never has the Premier League been gifted with so many ambitious people or clubs at the start of the season.

“We have [Jose] Mourinho at Manchester United, [Antonio] Conte at Chelsea, [Pep] Guardiola at Man City, Klopp at Liverpool, so it’s a little bit a world championship of managers as well.”

Klopp: “I never in my life made a decision about the line-up one week before the game because experience teaches you that everything can happen.

“We will have 11 very good players on the pitch against Arsenal and we will have a very strong bench, I’m really sure. But at this moment I have no idea who is where.”

PREDICTED LINEUPS

ars vs liv

 

KEY PLAYERS:

Xhaka

Granit Xhaka: The 3rd most expensive signing in Arsenal’s history, Xhaka had a decent EURO 2016 Campaign following it up by a string of good displays in the friendlies. With Liverpool expected to press high up the pitch, Wenger must be expecting a lot from this Swiss International (Alongside Coquelin or El Neny)) who will need to retain possession for the Gunners while looking to exploit the holes that Liverpool players might leave behind.

 

 

maneSadio Mane: The Senegalese International put all the doubts to rest after a phenomenal display against Barcelona in front of 90,000 spectators at Wembley. He brings an entirely new dimension to the Liverpool attack with incisiveness, direct runs, lightening quick speed and an eye for a goal. He can drift outside, cut inwards, offers incredible work rate and exhibits great link up play with Nathaniel Clyne which might cause some serious damage come Sunday.

BETTING ODDS

Arsenal 13/10

Draw 23/10

Liverpool 21/10

PREDICTION

Both these sides have enough firepower up front to cause lethal damage and with their respective set of defensive woes, the game looks all set for a mouthwatering affair.

Arsenal (much like Barcelona) are not the kind of team that sit back and defend and with Klopp’s men showing the growing impact of Gegenpressing, we should expect a classic end to end encounter with goals galore and both sides cancelling each other with a final scoreline of 2-2.

(Don’t be surprised if Liverpool manage to get all three points from Emirates to capitalize on Wenger’s inexperienced Center-Backs though.)

DID YOU KNOW?

Arsenal vs Liverpool has produced five hat-tricks, the most in any Premier League fixture.

(Fowler, Fowler, Henry, Crouch, Arshavin)
