Liverpool have returned to full training ahead of their Premier League clash with Arsenal on Saturday.

The Reds continued their 100 per cent start to the season with a 2-1 victory over Southampton at the weekend – with Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino both finding the scoresheet.

Jurgen Klopp’s men now turn their attention to their first Premier League of the season when the Gunners arrive at Anfield.

Both the Reds and the Gunners have won their opening two league fixtures as they both aim to challenge Manchester City for the title.

James Milner took part in the session with black tape over his head after he needed stitches following a challenge with James Ward-Prowse at St Mary’s.

But the injury didn’t seem to slow Milner down as he was snapped fighting for the ball with Adam Lallana.

The rest of the squad, including Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk and Jordan Henderson, also appeared in high spirits.

Georginio Wijnaldum has warned Arsenal that Liverpool are winning so far this season without being close to finding their top form.

The Dutch midfielder said: “It is encouraging that we are getting results without being in top form.

Sadio Mane scored against Southampton

“It is important, especially at this time of the season, that you collect as many points as possible because basically, you have to improve during the season and that is what are trying to do and what we want to do.

“But it is also important to collect as many as points until you are at your best. It is really important that we have won the game at Southampton .

“But I don’t think you always see a team play well for 90 minutes. We just have to make sure we win games.

“Basically it doesn’t matter how you win games. You just have to learn and use that experience that you have because we won’t play a game 90 minutes counter pressing or everything goes well during a game.

“You have to use your quality and your experience and still try to win the game. That is more important than playing well over the whole 90 minutes because that is really impossible.”

Unai Emery joked that Arsenal don’t want to face the Reds.

“For us we don’t want to play against Liverpool ever,” he said at the weekend.

“We’d prefer not to play against them.

“That is really our challenge, a really good test. For the supporters, for all of us, going there with six points is good.

“Really our target is to reduce the distance to Liverpool, Manchester City, Tottenham and Chelsea .

“When we play against them it is a big challenge to show how we can be. Next week is going to be a very good match.”
