All eyes will be on Anfield this weekend as Liverpool host Arsenal in what is the standout Premier League fixture in Gameweek Three.

Both teams have started well, courtesy of two wins in their opening two games, and will be looking to make a statement on Saturday evening.

Unai Emery’s men are aiming to prove that they can finally win an away game against a top-six rival and are on the road to remedying their defensive issues.

Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp’s side will be determined to cement their place at the top of the table and put some early distance between themselves and title rivals Manchester City.

We’re all set for an intriguing tactical battle, with Dani Ceballos being tipped to be the man capable of hurting the hosts.

However, could deploying Fabinho as the man to stifle the Spaniard tip the midfield battle in Liverpool’s favour?

And is the Gunners’ defence really capable of resisting the irresistible trio of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino? Last season’s 5-1 thrashing suggests not.

Elsewhere, Jack Grealish will be out to avoid another ‘L’, Man Utd face Crystal Palace at Old Trafford, Chelsea must crash the Teemu Pukki party and Spurs will be hopeful Heung-min Son’s hot streak versus Newcastle continues.
