Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is expecting a high-scoring affair when his side take on Arsenal this weekend. Klopp’s record against Arsenal since arriving in England is impressive, he has never lost against the Gunners, with three wins and two draws from five matches having produced 27 goals.
The fixture has a history of high scores with the last nine Premier League matches bringing 42 goals and the German is expecting the same again on Saturday. “It doesn’t look like that will change. They score a lot of goals and are really good offensively,” said Klopp.
“We have to see how this game will develop, with two very offensive-orientated teams it can often happen. It doesn’t have to, we saw in the Manchester City game (a goalless draw) that, but it is possible at least. “We have to make sure they don’t score, which will be a big challenge because they have all the different tools to do so.
“You need the full package, you need to be really ready and you need to cause them problems with the ball, without the ball. They will probably do something similar, and that makes it so interesting.”
