The Swiss midfielder started his first Premier League game for Liverpool on Saturday against Southampton and produced heroics, creating Mohamed Salah's goal courtesy of a superb free-kick.

David Moyes reckons Liverpool's current team is not as good as previous Reds sides - and thinks it still might be too soon to them to win the Premier League.

Klopp's red-hot men have now won seven successive matches in all competitions this term. However, the fresher he is for the weekend tie, the better for Klopp and team. "I didn't hear anything different". "So that's what we try to achieve every game".

Winning after a European game and also easily beating one of the "lesser" teams at home was important, far more important according to Jurgen Klopp that the big performances of the previous two games.

"On the evidence of what we've seen I'd say Arsenal or Manchester United, from what we've seen in these opening six games", Carragher responded when asked who would drop out of the top four. Counting three points for a win throughout history, this has never happened before since the... Whenever he went off, everyone was wondering if he was injured.

The Swiss worldwide understood the decision, according to his manager.

The new formation, a departure from their customary 4-3-3, seemed to be working as the Reds raced into a 3-0 lead but Klopp raised a few eyebrows when he introduced James Milner for Shaqiri at half-time.

"It's just good to have him". He was always a target to pass back to and was still involved in the defensive organization as you could see him communicating with the back line frequently.

Van Dijk, said Klopp, aggravated bruised ribs which he carried into the PSG game in midweek.

"He said he couldn't shout any more, so that's obviously 60 per cent less of his level!"

The match will be played at the Emirates stadium and it will start from 08:30 pm India time.

Can they overcome Liverpool twice in a row?

"We can't think about the opponent all the time". We're not the first and won't be the last not to cope with their attacking threat.

"Yes, he lost the ball before we conceded the second (Paris Saint-Germain) goal but it was a very intense game and things like this happen constantly".
