Defending champions Liverpool face a real test on Monday night this week as rivals Arsenal visit Anfield.

The Reds have looked impressive as Jurgen Klopp’s side gear up for their title defence, with wins over Leeds and Chelsea in the opening two weeks.

Klopp’s main fitness concern is over skipper Jordan Henderson after he went off injured against Chelsea.
If he misses out, Thiago Alcantara will make his Anfield debut, with Fabinho set to fill in for Joe Gomez at centre back.

For Arsenal, Mikel Arteta will be pleased with back to back wins to start the season, but a trip to Liverpool will present a real test for his side.

With Sokratis, Shkodran Mustafi and Kieran Tierney all still sidelined, Arteta will stick with Gabriel, Rob Holding and Saed Kolasinac in defence.

However, the Spaniard could be open to switching up his attack options, with the on-form Eddie Nketiah banging on the doo for a starting spot.

And it will be a late one for Klopp and Arteta on Monday night, with an 8pm kick at Anfield.
