Klopp: This Premier League season the most exciting in years

Arsenal's first real test of the season comes this Saturday, as Unai Emery's men take on Liverpool. Alisson forced him wide, but Lacazette was able to turn and, having worked the ball onto his right foot, curled a shot into the far corner. We deserved it because we could have lost, but we could also have won in the 90 minutes. And with Emery's attack looking more than capable, it will be a tale of which defence wants to win the most.

Unlike recent performances where Arsenal have started slowly, Emery's players must be focused from the start and will need to put early pressure on the Liverpool defense, led by Dutch global and record transfer Virgil van Dijk, if they have hopes of snatching all three points from the Reds.

We saw a different side of Ozil when he was replaced with 22 minutes left against Palace, throwing his gloves to the floor and refusing to give his manager a high five.

Arsenal are in a defensive crisis of sorts, especially on the flanks, as Hector Bellerin, Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac are all doubtful for Saturday evening's game.

Arsenal began the game on top but it was Liverpool that had the ball in the back of the net on 18 minutes. Alex Iwobi, whose pass created the equaliser, agreed.

"The reaction of the team was ideal", goalkeeper Bernd Leno told Arsenal's official website afterwards. Roberto Firmino hit the woodwork and Sadio Mane was wrongly flagged offside for the follow-up, while Virgil van Dijk's looped header kissed the post in first-half stoppage time.

Marco Silva's side will have to find a way to stop in-form striker Glenn Murray who has scored six of Brighton's 11 goals this campaign, helping them to 11th in the standings, one point behind Everton.




DF Shkodran Mustafi, 7 - Was near flawless for the opening hour but questions can be raised about his role in Liverpool's goal as well.

The duo of Van Dijk and Salah have been hugely influential to the Reds' unbeaten start to the new Premier League season.

Much of that improvement is thanks to Lucas Torreira, the muscular Uruguayan midfielder signed from Sampdoria in the summer.

"When you really look at him, he was really quiet today".

The German tactician made quite a few changes to his regular starting XI for the game against Cardiff last weekend, but will field his strongest team at the Emirates. Can't be accused of going missing in this one. Still can't get much reward for his work, though.

He believes Emery has won enough in his career - three successive Europa League titles and five major trophies at Paris St Germain - to warrant the respect his current 13-match unbeaten run deserves.

"I think he's a good option to have as third-choice central defender". Firmino's performances have been central to how Liverpool have dominated Arsenal in the recent past.
