Liverpool welcome Arsenal to Anfield this weekend in good form. The Reds didn't dwell on the last minute equaliser Watford scored in their opening match of the campaign and have won three games on the bounce, since then scoring seven and conceding three in the process.
The midweek dismantling of Hoffenheim in the Champions League shows just how destructive Jürgen Klopp's side can be. However, replicating such a devastating display isn't always as straightforward as it seems.
Teams rarely play a high line against Liverpool. But Arsenal are one of the few sides in the Premier League who are naïve enough to do just that, and the Reds could put the Gunners to the sword, just as they did last season during their 3-1 triumph.
Against Crystal Palace, Klopp rested a number of key players with the game against Hoffenheim clearly in his thinking. However, with an international break just around the corner, there's no reason for the former Borussia Dortmund manager not to start his strongest XI.
The only change we're predicting is James Milner starting in midfield in place of Georginio Wijnaldum. It would be foolish not to start Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané with the form they're in.
Klopp is still unable to call upon Philippe Coutinho who has recovered from his back injury but a virus is keeping him out.
The German tactician is still without starting right-back Nathaniel Clyne but in his absence both Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez have done well.
Whoever gets the nod on Sunday will give a good indication of how the manager wants his side to play. Alexander-Arnold means Liverpool will go at Arsenal whereas Gomez may mean there's a more conservative approach from the home team.
