Arsenal travel to Anfield to face Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon, in a game that could well see them coming unstuck based on the formbook. Arsenal have a poor record at Anfield, have not fared well away from home in the Premier League of late, coupled with Liverpool’s fantastic form on home soil in the last 12 months.

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side are currently seventh in the Premier League table with four points from their first two games, drawing 3-3 with Watford before beating Crystal Palace 1-0. The Reds have been strong at Anfield for some time, losing only one game since January in their own backyard in the league, while boasting a 3-1 win the last time the two sides met in Merseyside.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he “100% expects” midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to stay at the Emirates Stadium for at least one more season, despite rumours of a £25m bid from Liverpool, reports The Sun. The England midfielder will be out of contract next summer and is reportedly keen to switch to Merseyside as manager Jurgen Klopp greatly admires him as a player.

Wenger, however, is not so sure. “100% expect him to stay, no matter what happens he will stay,” he said. Oxlade-Chamberlain was impressive for Arsenal last season. He made 29 Premier League appearances, scoring and creating nine goals, featuring at right wing-back, left wing-back, central midfield, left-wing and right-wing.

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has his pick of clubs this summer, with Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea reportedly keen on his signature. The England international, who has just 12 months left on his current deal, looks set to leave Arsenal as a result of a lack of playing time in his favourite position, but where will he go?

Liverpool still lead the race for the midfielder, with manager Jurgen Klopp a big fan of Oxlade-Chamberlain. The Arsenal player’s industry and creativity would see him fit into the Reds side and be a useful player for their Champions League campaign in 2017/18. And with Arsenal out of the prestigious competition, while having reportedly not offered a formal deal to the 23-year-old, it’s hard to see him remaining at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal reportedly interested in Germany international 1

According to the Sun, Arsenal could be in a battle with Liverpool to sign £27million-rated Bayern Munich’s Germany international Mario Gotze, who is currently at Euro 2016 with his country.

Gotze has struggled to cement a place in the Bayern Munich starting line-up since moving to Bavaria from rivals Dortmund in a big money deal. It now seems the World Cup winner is set to move on this summer and the Premier League looks like a likely destination.

Liverpool are also reported to be interested in signing Gotze, as the attacking midfielder played under current Reds boss Jurgen Klopp at Dortmund. Klopp is believed to be keen on adding his former charge to his squad on Merseyside this summer.

If there was one style of play Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was most fearful of, it’s Liverpool’s. While having finally found a way to win ugly in the physical battles against bottom-half opposition, it’s relentless high-pressing opponents that have managed to pick up points against Arsenal in the last few years, such as Swansea City and Southampton. Tottenham gave them problems this campaign, and now Liverpool could well be another bogey side for the Gunners.
