Liverpool v Arsenal
The second round of the Premier League season is far from over, and already attention is being fast-forwarded to next weekend’s fixtures.
After losing 1-0 at Stoke on Saturday night, Arsenal travel to Liverpool.
Liverpool picked up their first win of the season beating Crystal Palace 1-0. Sadio Mane scored for the second game running.
So will Arsenal rebound against the Reds? Or will another defeat loom, leaving Arsene Wenger with two losses in three games?
You sense the ‘Wenger Out’ brigade is getting ready for a fresh 2017-18 assault.
Alexis Sanchez v Liverpool
Arsenal fans are still yet to see Alexis Sanchez in action this season.
The Chilean missed the pre-season tour as he competed for Chile at the Confederations Cup.
And, amid constant transfer talk, Alexis picked up an injury when he returned to London.
Sanchez, of course, remains in the final year of his Arsenal contract. Currently, he’ll be a free agent at the end of the season.
In good news for Arsenal fans, after the Stoke game Arsene Wenger suggested that Sanchez could play against Liverpool.
That would be a major boost for morale.

Laurent Koscielny is also back
In a second boost for Arsenal, French centre-half Laurent Koscielny will also be back in the side for the Liverpool game.
Koscielny has served a three match ban after being sent off in the final match of last season against Everton.
