The Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger will need to arrange his lineup in a good shape following the current Liverpool standard. Liverpool Kicked out Hoffenheim by beating them away.

The 1-0 defeat against Stoke city was a blow to Arsenal as the season begins. They have been bad on the road while Liverpool had an impressive game at home.

Wenger, as usual, pointed to injustices at the hands of officials - a penalty appeal and disallowed goal - as mitigation but there was a stale air about the Gunners. It is preposterous to imagine Arsenal putting in a title challenge.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed Philippe Coutinho is battling an illness that could make him a doubt for the visit of Arsenal this weekend.

Coutinho has not featured for Liverpool this season due to a back injury and amid interest from Barcelona, who are believed to have seen three big-money offers for the 25-year-old rejected by the Reds.

Klopp confirmed in a press conference on Tuesday that a bout of illness means Coutinho will now not play in Liverpool's Champions League play-off second leg against Hoffenheim - which also raises doubts as to whether the midfielder will have any role in the league clash with Arsenal on Sunday.

On Sunday, Wenger takes his team to Anfield. The Frenchman expects Alexis Sanchez to be available for selection after recovering from an abdominal strain. That is if Sanchez is still at the Emirates. The Chilean wants to leave. Wenger insists the forward is staying. The Arsenal boss was equally forthright in claiming that Cesc Fabregas, Samir Nasri and Robin van Persie would remain at the club. They left.

Arsenal facing Liverpool will be a great chance to measure themselves as they will face Bournemouth and later Chelsea. Chelsea is in good shape after they were defeated by Burnley at home in the first opening matches.
