Liverpool Confirmed lineup vs Arsenal: Fabinho in for Henderson

Predicted Liverpool XI: Arsenal (H)

"Mo Salah gave the penalty to Bobby and I nearly cried because we all know how much Mo wants to score goals", added Klopp.

Jürgen Klopp said he would prefer to deliver his verdict on Liverpool's first half of the season after the game against Arsenal, and following another handsome win that took his side nine points clear he was true to his word.

"We have a lot of work to do, defensively also, we know we need to get better", Emery said. But it certainly never really felt like Arsenal would take control.

Just a minute later and Liverpool had the lead as Firmino waltzed his way through the Arsenal defence before slotting past Bernd Leno for 2-1 and Sadio Mane then made it 3-1 in the 32nd minute. "It was ideal defending".

Firmino made it 2-1 for the Reds and got his brace in the 16th minute, turning the game on it's head for the hosts with a attractive solo run, beating off three challenges from Arsenal players from 30-yards before placing his strike in the bottom corner, 2-1. As a manager, you have to analyse what you can do better - the way we defend and the opponent.

Since Liverpool lost in the Champions League to Real Madrid final back in May, Klopp has focused on bringing in much needed reinforcements to the club.

"(Manchester City) is a huge one", the 24-year-old told BT Sports. "Maybe we can do one balance, one mix between [the previous] draw and this result today".

Liverpool's nine-point lead at the top of the Premier League is of little importance to Jurgen Klopp, who knows there is a long way to go. We look forward to it.

His side host Liverpool in the Premier League on Thursday before a third-round FA Cup tie at home to Championship strugglers Rotherham three days later. "I can not deny the game will speak for itself and we are not in good form and winning will help us a lot of course".

"I think we started well with the first goal and then they had the difference with attacking moments, determination and quality".

'We need to do this progress doing a step every day. Our first target is to qualify for the Champions League and I don't feel we have done enough to be sure of that yet. At the moment we're really happy and I hope we can keep going like this.
