Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp seems happy his side will be playing Arsenal this weekend after their 4-1 win over Cardiff City.

A brace from Sadio Mane and another from Mohamed Salah and Xherdan Shaqiri enough to hand the Reds a full three points as well as extend their unbeaten run in the Premier League.

Liverpool are now four points ahead of Arsenal who failed to secure a win against Crystal Palace on Sunday with their clash expected to either extend the gap or close it.

According to Klopp, it is the best time to play the Gunners because there is an interlude before the game as his side will be having a full week break before the clash at the Emirates Stadium.

The German boss said his players will not only have time to rest but will be able to recover from the busy fixtures last week with his side playing a total of three games within a week.

Liverpool are bent on winning a trophy this season with their sight on the Premier League and the Champions League having been eliminated from the Carabao Cup.

Manager Klopp is yet to win any trophy since joining the Anfield side in three years but came close last season with a second place finish in the league and a final defeat in the Champions League.
