Klopp Identifies Two Key Players Ahead Of Arsenal Game


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has identified two key players for Arsenal ahead of their league meeting on Saturday evening.

Klopp and his Liverpool players welcome Arsenal to Anfield in the star match of the week three set of games in the Premier League.

The Liverpool manager spoke extensively about the game in his pre-match presser on Friday as he identified new signing Nicholas Pepe and stand-in captain Granit Xhaka as key players for Arsenal.

According to him, the two players are likely to be the changes made by Unai Emery from the Arsenal starting XI for the Burnley game.

Arsenal secured their second win from two Premier League games with the narrow 2-1 win over Burnley at home.

Summer signing Pepe is the club-record transfer holder for Arsenal after his £72m move from French club Lille at the start of this month.

He was a second-half substitute during the Burnley game.

For Granit Xhaka, the Swiss international missed the Burnley clash because of a small back problem.

Arsenal took the lead in the corresponding fixture last season through Ainsley Maitland-Niles before they succumbed to a 5-1 defeat against the Reds.

Roberto Firmino was the star of the show as he scored three goals to lead his team to an emphatic victory over the Gunners.
