Team News

  • Daniel Agger returns from suspension to face Arsenal but Liverpool were dealt a massive blow with the news that Lucas will be out for as long as 3 months with a thigh injury sustained against City.
  • 17-year old Raheem Sterling made his Premier League debut last time out and impressed, so could keep his place on the left ahead of Downing, while Enrique should return in place of Kelly.
  • Lucas' injury means that there could be a league debut for Nuri Sahin against an Arsenal side who were also keen to bring him to their club this summer.
  • Szczesny missed the game with Stoke through injury but should be fit to return for the trip to Anfield, whilst Koscielny and Sagna are also nearing full fitness, with the former more likely to be in contention.
  • Theo Walcott's future has been in doubt in recent weeks and though it seems he will stay at the club this summer, he is yet to pen a new contract and could miss out for now, with Oxlade-Chamberlain potentially replacing Gervinho.
  • Elsewhere Jenkinson could come under competition for a start at right-back from Koscielny, while Gibbs should keep his place at left-back.


  • In the pick of the weekend's matches Brendan Rodgers' new look Liverpool side host Arsenal, with the passing styles of the two sides likely to ensure a high quality affair.
  • However, Arsenal have lacked a cutting edge to their ever free-flowing football, while both of Liverpool's goals this season have come from set pieces thus far.
  • Liverpool haven't won against Arsenal at Anfield since 2008 and games between the two sides are usually very close. Expect Arsenal to open their account for the season but also to concede for the first time in what should be an entertaining match.

  • Podolski: Arsenal's best wing player since Pires.

  • Very good performance from Arsenal's midfield. Very BAD performance from Gerrard, Reina and Suarez. Suarez should be on the right instead of Borini, Borini is wasted wen playing him on the right specially that Liverpool need goals. Allen and Sterling had a very good game as well.

  • Hi Man Utd, We Are Arsenal..certainly God not by ur side..oh..coz u r a devil..pffftt..

  • Hello Man Utd, I am Arsenal, pray harder next time.

  • I am MAN UTD i pray Liverpool wins.
