Liverpool and Arsenal will need their key players to deliver when they lock horns at Anfield

Posted: 27 August 2017 Time: 15:35

English Premier League giants Liverpool and Arsenal lock horns at Anfield on Sunday. Here are the men to look out for in the big match of the weekend.

LIVERPOOL

Sadio Mane

The Senegalese forward is the go-to man for the Reds, usually coming up with the goods against the big clubs. He loves playing against Arsenal, having scored in both league matches against the Gunners last season.

Georgino Wijnaldum

The Dutchman is an important figure in midfield for the Reds. He covers a lot of ground and wins a lot of balls in midfield, but he is also able to chip in with some valuable goals for the club. They’ll be hoping he can make those late runs into the box, which usually cause problems for the opponents.

Mo Salah

The Egyptian has settled in well at Liverpool, scoring his first goal at home for the club in their league victory over Crystal Palace recently. He followed that up with a goal at home in a Champions League qualifier against German club Hoffenheim. Salah has got a deadly left foot and cannot be given too much space to shoot from range. 

ARSENAL

Alexis Sanchez

The Chilean, who has been linked with a move away from the Emirates, is in line to make his first appearance of the season. He’s been missed in attack and having him will no doubt give Arsenal the spark they need in the final third.

Hector Bellerin

The right back is well known for those dangerous runs he makes on the flank. They’ll need him to cause problems for Liverpool’s left side of defense and whip in those good crosses.

Alexandre Lacazette

It has not be the easiest of starts for Arsenal’s record signing, but he’ll be encouraged by the goal he got on his Premier League debut against Leicester City. A goal against Liverpool would no doubt give him a confidence boost going forward
