Match: Liverpool v Arsenal
Kick-Off (GMT): Sun 27 Aug 16:00
Arsenal will be looking to put last week’s defeat against Stoke behind them when they travel to Anfield on Sunday.
The Gunners will be wanting all three points from a team which has caused them considerable irritation in recent years. Arsene Wenger gave his team news ahead of the clash.
“The early team news is that Koscielny is back for selection,” Wenger revealed in his pre-match press conference. Sanchez has worked very hard to be back and he’s available for selection.
“He’s worked very hard, very focused and he gives absolutely everything. He loves so much to play that it’s sometimes difficult to stop him.

“He has not played for a while so I will have to decide what I do with him but he’s ready to play.”
There’s little doubt that Alexis Sanchez will play against Liverpool. The Gunners were certainly missing his presence against Stoke last weekend and let’s hope that changes at the weekend. It’s a massive game and will be a huge test of this Arsenal team despite Liverpool’s weaknesses right now.
