JAMIE CARRAGHER is worried that Liverpool's defence could get found out by the pace of Arsenal's attack when they face off on Saturday afternoon.
Both teams will come to Anfield with a perfect record of two wins from two so far in the Premier League this season but Carragher reckons the Reds have been far from immaculate.
The former Liverpool centre-back believes Jurgen Klopp's men are vulnerable to being sliced open by top-level attackers.
Carragher said on Monday Night Football: “With the quality Arsenal have, if Liverpool get themselves in those positions and don't run back, they're going to have major problems within that game.
“On the counter-attack as well, with Liverpool higher up the pitch, Arsenal could cause big problems, I have no doubt about that.
“The chances and the shots on goal that they are allowing at the moment, better quality teams and strikers will make Liverpool pay.”
HOW ARSENAL could line up after the January transfer window with Rugani, Zaha and Bellerin back in the XI.
ARSENAL chief Josh Kroenke has vowed to be ruthless with dead-weights in the Gunners squad.
He told BBC Sport: “I would defer to our football operations staff but I know there are a few names that have come up who might not see as much playing time this season, so whether that’s via loan or permanent transfer I know there are discussions going on.
“I’ll leave that to our football operations staff.
“So from a player’s perspective, whether it’s good or bad news I think the best thing you can do is be honest with the player because they’ve only got a limited window where they can be at their physical peak.
“I would say whatever we’re doing we’re going to be aggressive and we’re going to be decisive, and we’re going to communicate well and honestly through it all.”
LUCAS TORREIRA could have joined AC Milan this summer but Arsenal had “no intention” of letting him leave, according to the midfielder's agent.
Pablo Bentancur told TMW:“There was the possibility. (Marco) Giampaolo is in the heart of Lucas.
“But Arsenal said he had no intention of selling the boy. Lucas is fine, the club are happy with him. This will be the year of consecration. With the Arsenal shirt.
“Milan is Milan, it will always be an important team, even if today it has some economic problems.”
JOE WILLOCK has hailed Arsenal legend Freddie Ljungberg after his dream start to the season.
“Freddie is not only such a legend at the club, he’s an unbelievable manager and coach,” said Willock. “He’s a mentor for me, he showed me a lot behind the scenes that people don’t really know about.
“Every day I’m working with him and I’m learning from him.
“He’s improved my whole overall game. If I’m being specific, getting in the pockets when I’m playing No.10 and attacking at No.8.
“He showed me a lot of different tactics to get space and turn to attack other teams. Those are the main things really.”
