Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has hailed some of the players in Arsenal’s squad ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash.

The Reds have started the season poorly and are already 11 points off the Gunners, who top the table.

Klopp has singled out players in Mikel Arteta’s squad that have contributed to their brilliant start to the campaign.

He told a press conference on Friday: “They had a lot of talent over the last few years, Martinelli I was excited about very early on, and he’s become the player I expected.

“Martin Odegaard I spoke to when he was 15 years old, and the whole world wanted him before he chose Real Madrid. He’s become the player everyone expected, Saka from the first day he played he’s been incredible and if anyone knew how good Gabriel Jesus could be as a number nine not in a Man City shirt then it was Mikel.

“He’s brought Xhaka back on track, everyone knew how Thomas Partey was when he was at Atletico, and now they’ve found a way how they want to defend. They played a different line-up on Thursday but still with lots of quality; it’s a young team, a very exciting team and doing very well, which is well-deserved.”
