Liverpool will look to continue their unbeaten start to the 2018-19 Premier League season when they travel to Arsenal in Saturday's late kickoff. However, Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno spread himself well to deny the Dutchman an unlikely goal.

However, Twitter being Twitter, took aim at Liverpool midfielder Fabinho who made only his second Premier League start for the club since his £40 million summer switch from Monaco.

Arsenal deserved a point from what, given the opposition, was arguably its most impressive performance of the season and it came thanks to one of Emery's substitutions: Alex Iwobi, who drifted in from the left and played a terrific ball through to Lacazette.

"All people in football knew how good he is but I am not sure all Arsenal fans were over the moon at first when they heard it would be Emery", said Klopp. The Reds now occupy the table's top spot alone, although that might be short lived. They will expect to surrender top spot when Manchester City take on Southampton on Sunday. He has never lost against the Gunners, with three wins and two draws from five matches having produced 27 goals.

Former Liverpool star Jan Molby has revealed that Arsenal will pose a sterner test against the Reds than what Pep Guardiola's Manchester City did earlier at Anfield. Liverpool's back line was breached again in short order, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's shot deflected wide by Joe Gomez's desperate sliding tackle. However, the most refreshing aspect has been the Gunners' attacking play.

MF Henrikh Mkhitaryan, 6 - Showed his connection with Aubameyang on a couple of occasions and almost scored with a header in the first half. However, Arsenal has a habit of cranking up the volume when it matters the most.

A fit and firing Liverpool front three causes headaches to even the meanest of defences and against a makeshift Arsenal back four, they would fancy their chances of inflicting damage.

Mane thought he had put Liverpool ahead when he scored from the rebound after Roberto Firmino's half-volley had struck the Arsenal post.

Who do you think will win this match?

Cech, 36, was rotated with David Ospina by Arsene Wenger during the Frenchman's final year in charge at the Emirates - and with Leno being 10 years Cech's junior, the writing could be on the wall for the Premier League stalwart.
