'I wouldn’t expect it' - Klopp rules out goal-filled match against Arsenal

Jurgen Klopp does not expect a high-scoring match when his Liverpool side entertains Arsenal in an English Premier League match on Saturday afternoon. 

The Reds punished Arsenal 5-1 the last time the two teams met at the grounds, but Klopp is unsure if a similar goal-fest can be experienced. 

There have been a massive 50 goals scored in 11 last clashes between the two sides, and many expect goals on Saturday. 

Asked at his pre-match press conference about the prospect of another goal-filled game, Klopp said: “I wouldn’t expect it, to be honest,"

“Both teams are probably offensive-orientated at least, but I have no clue about the result,"

Klopp further urged his players to be ‘brave, greedy, angry’ and more in the pursuit of a victory against Unai Emery’s visitors.

The German will be able to call on most of his first-team players, with the only absence being Naby Keita, who is still nursing an injury. 

The front three attacking of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are available, and Klopp will count on them to deliver the goods.
