Klopp picks out the two changes he expects Emery to make against Liverpool

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp expects Unai Emery to make some changes to his Arsenal starting lineup when the two sides clash on Saturday in an English Premier League match. 

The two are the only sides with a perfect record in the league having won their opening two matches, with the Reds above the Gunners on goal difference. 

Speaking ahead of the tie, Klopp said he expects a totally different game, further noting they will have to be very brave to take all the three-point.

“Both teams are probably offensive-orientated at least, but I have no clue about the result. Arsenal can and will probably change at least two key positions: probably [Nicolas] Pepe will start, which doesn’t make them weaker, and [Granit] Xhaka probably, and they can still make other changes," he said. 

Pepe is yet to start any game since signing from Lille, but Unai Emery hinted that the Ivory Coast international might be in line for his first start. 

“It happened a lot to us in the last few months or maybe years that you make an analysis, especially in the early stages [of the season], and then you see against us they play completely differently – playing build-up against everybody and not against us,"

Liverpool mauled Arsenal 5-1 last time the two sides met at the same grounds and will be looking to continue with their recent wins over the Gunners.
