Alexis Starts - Arsenal's Strongest Possible 3-4-2-1 XI vs Liverpool

Postado Agosto 26, 2017

"It's not about money, sometimes it's just possible or not possible".

"I've said it a few times, if the transfer window closed tomorrow, it is like it is and I'm happy with it", the Liverpool boss said.

Gomez, 20, came off the bench to play at right-back in the win over Hoffenheim and also occupied that role in the club's only clean sheet of the season last week in 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace. It depends what has been agreed sometimes between you and the players so it's very hard for me to interfere in that because I don't know what's happening between Coutinho and Liverpool.

Mohamed Salah had an eventful season with Serie A runner-ups Roma previous year, as he was able to contribute with 15 goals and 13 assists in 31 league matches, which sparked the interest of Liverpool's boss Jurgen Klopp.

"In the Champions League game [against Hoffenheim] Divock Origi was not in the squad. I don't know. Obviously this transfer window is different to all other transfer windows".

Wenger said: "There are good memories and bad memories some times, but overall we have done well at Anfield and we want to do well again". It's always hard because you want your players to be happy, but the players have contracts.

On this evidence, the Reds don't need him, although their defensive frailties were exposed again, especially on the flank of left back Alberto Moreno.

They will have seen what we did against Hoffenheim.

He said: "I had to deal many times in my life with big departures of big players and I always focus more on the team".

Unsettled Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho is set to travel to Brazil for worldwide duty, even though he has been sidelined for the last three weeks because of a back injury. I'm happy at the moment. Not sure. Will be happier? Will I be happy on August 31 still? While injuries are now playing a part in the limited options available to Klopp, this is something which can't be discounted at any given point of the season.

"I've not been in contact so far with the Brazil FA, but the rules are that if they want to see him and check him, then of course he has to go there".

Former Liverpool defender Lawrenson believes Arsenal will leave Anfield with a point on Sunday despite their disappointing record on Merseyside in recent years.

"Little things, nothing major". I don't know but I think that will happen. "Nothing happened yesterday [Thursday], it should be okay".
