Liverpool’s £120,000-a-week star ruled out of the game vs Arsenal

After two games, Liverpool are siting at the top of the Premier League table and next up, they will collide against Arsenal, who have also win six points from their opening fixtures.

Last season, the Reds destroyed the Gunners 5-1 at Anfield and Unai Emery has already admitted that facing Liverpool is not something that he likes (The Daily Star).

As far as the team news is concerned, the European Champions will be without one of their star midfielders.

Guinean international Naby Keita has been ruled out of the game vs Arsenal due to a hip muscle injury (Mirror Sport).

The African star joined the Merseysiders last year from German club Leipzig and so far, he has not been able to settle at Anfield. Why? Mainly because of consistent injury concerns.

In the last campaign, the £120,000-a-week midfielder (Mirror Sport) missed 11 games in all competitions due to various issues.

So far, in the current campaign, the 24-year-old has only featured for 23 minutes in the Community Shield contest vs Manchester City. Keita was an unused substitute against Norwich and was not even part of the squad vs Chelsea and Southampton.

Fortunately, Klopp has got a lot of quality and depth in the center of the park with midfielders like Fabinho, Milner, Wijnaldum, Oxlade-Chamberlain and skipper Henderson around.

In your view, who will come out on top on Saturday when Liverpool host Arsenal at Anfield?
