The Gunners will travel up north on the back of their 1-0 defeat away to Stoke as Arsene Wenger will look to get his side back to winning ways.

The Reds will host Arsenal on Sunday, August 27.

Kick-off will be at 4pm.

The match will be played at Anfield.

By Ian Wright

LIVERPOOL showed against Hoffenheim that when they turn it on they can blast teams away in a 20-minute spell.

It’s hard to foresee anything other than a home win.

Sadio Mane was fantastic mid-week and in that kind of form the 13/2 on him bagging two or more looks great value.
