Ceballos impressed as Arsenal win again by Konstantin Mitov

The veteran defender missed the north Londoners' opening game of the season - a 1-0 win away at Newcastle - but made his debut last Saturday against Burnley.

"For us, we don't want to play against Liverpool ever", he joked after Saturday's 2-1 win over Burnley (as reported by Sky Sports).

When you have Mane, Salah and Firmino coming at you and you make a mistake then it is all over, they will pounce and take advantage, it is what they have been doing for the last 12 months and Luiz, Sokratis and co have to be on top of their game, they can not give those guys an inch, in fact, not even a millimetre, they are absolutely fearsome and prey on weakness and mistakes.

"That is really our challenge, a really good test".

"Really our target is to reduce the distance to Liverpool, Manchester City, Tottenham and Chelsea".

Wijnaldum said: 'It is hard to say who will be up there but we must see how the season goes for them but also us. "Next week is going to be a very good match". It's the same if you ask if we are going to be stronger with those three players up front.

"I think this year will be different, but we have to improve of course from the work we do with the coach and his staff". "But above all is be positive and keep moving ahead".

Liverpool's 2-1 victory at Southampton on Saturday was a flawless example though Klopp was sufficiently encouraged as it came off the back of their late finish and win in the Super Cup against Chelsea last week.

The Gunners face a hard couple of games as they take on Liverpool at Anfield this weekend before clashing with Tottenham Hotspur in the North London derby the following week.

Arsenal's pacey forward line will likely be licking their lips at the prospect of trying to beat the offside trap and it could prove to be a very open game. It will be a challenge for Unai Emery, we all know he has what it takes, but is he too scared to execute it?
