  • LAC OF FUNDS

    Arsenal are ready to sell Alexandre Lacazette to raise funds for Thomas Partey and Houssem Aouar, according to reports.

    Roma are one of the clubs leading the chase with The Athletic stating a bid has been made, but the publication states that it has fallen well below Arsenal's expectations.

    Lacazette had a mixed evening in the Gunners' 3-1 defeat at Anfield as he scuffed the ball past Alisson to put them in front but then missed two gilt-edged chances in the second half.

  • KEANE VS KLOPP

    Jurgen Klopp hit back at Roy Keane after the Irishman called Liverpool “sloppy” during their 3-1 win over Arsenal.

  • NOU WAY I'D LEAVE

    Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has confirmed he rejected “several offers, notably from Barca” to instead become Arsenal's highest-paid player ever.

    The Gabon superstar told French TV show Canal Football Club: “There were several offers, notably from Barca, but also other clubs.

    “My priority was to stay for two reasons. The first is the coach, Mikel Arteta, because we spoke a fair amount during the 'lockdown' as they say here.

    “We were at home and spoke several times and he convinced me, notably in terms of the project.

    “And of course, secondly, is the love that I receive from the fans and people at the club.

    “Since I have been here I have been treated like one of their own, and as I am one of their own, I am going to stay here, it is as simple as that.”

  • FT: LIVERPOOL 3-1 ARSENAL

    It's all over at Anfield and the Gunners leave empty handed.

  • GOALLLL – JOTA! LIVERPOOL 3-1 ARSENAL

    88. He missed his first chance, was denied his second but Diogo Jota has scored with his third opportunity in a Liverpool shirt.

    The former Wolves forward has been full of attacking endeavour since his introduction and deserves his debut goal.

    Following a right-wing cross, David Luiz's clearing header fell nicely to Jota on the edge of the box, and the Portuguese player controlled smartly on his chest before firing a volley past the flat-footed Leno.

    It's a first goal for his new club, and it means they're going to take all three points.

  • LAC-ING FOR MORE

    Arsenal have reportedly rebuffed an offer from Roma for striker Alexandre Lacazette.

    But the money put forward by the Italians 'fell comfortably below what Arsenal would expect' and a move 'is unlikely to go any further'.

    Lacazette has not had any contract talks with Arsenal amid fears he could leave.

    Gunners fans had hoped the £52million striker would sign an extended deal, but boss Mikel Arteta has revealed there have been no discussions about a new contract.

    The 29-year-old former Lyon striker's five-year deal will run out in June 2022, just over 20 months' time.

    And earlier this month he laughed off transfer speculation and insisted he wanted to stay at the club.

  • HT: LIVERPOOL 2-1 ARSENAL

    The champions are in front at the break despite the shock of falling behind to Lacazette's opener.

    Goals from Mane and Robertson have turned the game around, and Liverpool are looking all set to add another match to their long, unbeaten home run.

  • GOALLLLLL – LIVERPOOL 2-1 Arsenal

    35. Ten minutes after his blunder had gifted Arsenal the lead, Andy Robertson scores to put Liverpool ahead.

    Three Arsenal defenders failed to deal with another deep Trent Alexander-Arnold cross, and that allowed the ball to drop for the left-back.

    Taking it on his chest, Robertson continues his run to poke past Bernd Leno from close range.

    A quick turnaround!

  • GOOAAAAAAL! LIVERPOOL 1-1 Arsenal

    28. That lead didn't last long!

    Liverpool bounce back through Sadio Mane, who will score few easier goals in his career.

    The Senegalese forward stabbed home just inches from an empty goal after Bernd Leno could only palm Mo Salah's shot into his path.

  • GOALLLLLLLL!! LIVERPOOL 0 – 1 ARSENAL

    25. Unbelievable!

    The home side had been so dominant, but it's Arsenal who lead following their first foray into the Liverpool box.

    A calamitous attempted clearance from Robertson falls for Lacazette who makes no mistake.

  • AUBA AND IN

    Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has urged Arsenal to sign Houssem Aouar “even though he's a Lyonnais”.

    The Gunners captain made his name with Lyon's fierce rivals Saint-Etienne and has mocked team-mate Alexandre Lacazette's connection with the French side on regular occasions.

    Aubameyang said: “He's a very good player. I hope we will be lucky to have these types of players at the club, I'm sure he can bring a lot to us.

    “I hope he will come even though he's a Lyonnais.”

  • ARTISTS

    Mikel Arteta has urged his players to be at their best if they want to beat Liverpool at Anfield tonight.

    He said: “We know the standards that they have set in this league, how consistent they have been and that is because they dominate almost every aspect of the game.

    “So we need to be at our best, we need to compete really well against this team and hopefully the boys are able to do that on Monday.

    “It is normally difficult enough to play the same team in four days and for the players as well to adapt. Obviously, the first game has a big impact on the second one and it is really tough to beat the same opponent twice in that short period.

    “When you talk about Liverpool that challenge is much bigger but I just want to focus on Monday. Let's try to get the best possible preparation against them, go there, and most importantly have the belief that we can go there and win.

    “We all have to believe that we are capable of doing that.”

  • CLOCK IS TICKING

  • ITALIAN SPENDING SPREE

    SunSport can reveal Shkodran Mustafiis attracting interest from both Lazio and Roma.

    And it looks as though Simone Inzaghi's side have won the race to bring the ex-Valencia star to the Stadio Olimpico.

    According to Lazio Press, Mustafi's agent and father have held talks with the Eagles.

    It has been said that final details of the move are all that is needed for the centre-back to link up with Lazio.

    Arsenal are prepared to allow Mustafi to depart if they receive a bid in the region of £13million.

    Mustafi hasn't played for the Gunners since their FA Cup semi-final win against Manchester City last season.

  • FIVE OF THE BEST

    Arsenal travel to Anfield tonight looking to make it three wins out of three.

    Here are five of the Gunners best goals against Liverpool.

  • PAY THE PENALTY

    The Premier Leagueis on course for more than 70 controversial handball penalties this season if the hardline enforcement of the new Law continues.

    Spurs boss Jose Mourinho was uncharacteristically speechless in his fury after Eric Dier was penalised in the 95th minute to award Newcastle a last kick penalty equaliser on Sunday.

    So far, there have been five “VAR handball penalties” awarded from just 26 Prem games, with a total of 16 spot kicks given.

    Manchester United’s Victor Lindelof was the first to fall foul of the new clampdown against Crystal Palace, followed by Spurs’ Matt Doherty in the latter stages of their 5-2 win at Southampton.

    Saturday saw Brighton’s Neil Maupay concede the match-winning spot kick against United and Ward’s adjudged indiscretion to hand Richarlison the spot-kick winner, before Dier was pinged despite not even looking at the ball when it struck him off Andy Carroll’s header.

    If the same rate of awards continues through the season, there will be 73 such handball penalties awarded over the course of the campaign and a staggering 234 spot kicks in total.

  • MUST LEAVE

    Lazio are reportedly in deep negotiations with Shkodran Mustafi over a deal to bring the Arsenal defender to Italy.

    The 28-year-old is not in the plans of Mikel Arteta, who has preferred options Gabriel Magalhaes, David Luiz, Rob Holding and William Saliba to count on.

    And with Mustafi having just one year left to run on his deal at the Emirates, the North Londoners are keen to cash in on him.

    SunSport reported last week how the World Cup winner was attracting interest from both Lazio and Roma.

    And it looks as though Simone Inzaghi's side have won the race to bring the ex-Valencia star to the Stadio Olimpico.

    According to Lazio Press, Mustafi's agent and father have held talks with the Eagles.

    It has been said that final details of the move are all that is needed for the centre-back to link up with Lazio.

  • RED CARPET

    Liverpool have rapidly emerged as the heavy-favourites to retain their Premier League crown this season.

    The bookies have slashed the odds on the Reds winning the title for a second successive season following Manchester City's 5-2 defeat to Leicester.

    Chelsea meanwhile, who have won just one of their opening three games, have drifted to 25/1 odds following their 3-3 draw with West Brom.

    Arsenal are also rated at the same odds.

    Everton who are behind Leicester on goal difference, are also adrift of the Foxes' 33/1 odds to replicate their historic 2016 title win.

    Manchester United have been made the same price despite the Red Devils coming from behind to beat Brighton 3-2 for their first win of the season.
