Liverpool: The Reds improved defensively from game one to game two, but this is their biggest test yet. The key will be to keep possession and keep those fullbacks back a bit, because Arsenal love to counter with their speed. Expect Liverpool to control most of the ball and to get some really good looks early.
Arsenal: The Gunners have some real confidence now, and they have the look of a top-four team. But let’s be realistic — wins over Fulham and West Ham aren’t ringing endorsements that they are back to top form. This is a test that will tell them plenty, especially when it comes to whether this defense is real our not with new signing Gabriel leading the way.
The Reds get revenge and start the season 3-0-0. Pick: Liverpool 2, Arsenal 1
