Jamie Carragher sends Arsenal warning to Liverpool boss

Carragher believes Arsenal can compete with Liverpool this weekend

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has admitted that he is concerned with the high defensive line from the Reds as they prepare to host Arsenal in the Premier League this weekend.

Jurgen Klopp‘s side are currently top of the table with the perfect tally of six points after the opening two games and this has only been replicated by the Gunners, who are just behind them on goal difference.

The Reds have had the better of the Gunners in the last three meetings at Anfield where they have beaten them 3-1, 4-0 and 5-1 respectively but Carragher anticipates a much challenging contest this time around.

While Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are bound to test the Gunners’ defensive resolve, Carragher is also concerned with the Reds’ high line against the pace and clinicalness of the Gunners’ attack.

Speaking on the Reds’ defensive shape, he told Sky Sports: “I don’t like it and I think they’ve been lucky and fortunate at different times this season to get away with it.”

The former England international added that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe are bound to offer a different challenge to the Reds backline, which has regularly sought to play the offside trap.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has acknowledged that Harry Maguire is on the cusp of signing for the club and he could feature in the Premier League opener against Chelsea.

The England international has already arrived at the Red Devils’ Carrington base for the medical tests and a £85m deal is expected to be announced in the next 24 hours.

In a report covered by the club’s official website, Solskjaer confirmed that an agreement has been reached with Leicester City for the transfer of the defender and he could make his debut against the Blues on August 11.

“Let’s get the details over the line but yeah, [he could be in contention for Chelsea game]. He has played a few games in pre-season, we will have to assess him if and when,” he said.

Maguire will become the Red Devils’ third signing of the summer transfer window following the arrivals of Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Swansea City and Crystal Palace respectively.

Celtic boss Lennon discuss Tierney to Arsenal transfer situation

Tierney to make Arsenal move next week?


Celtic manager Neil Lennon has revealed that the club are still waiting to hear back from Arsenal regarding a transfer for left-sided defender Kieran Tierney, who has been linked with a move to the North London club for a fee of £24 million. The Scotsman is comfortable playing on the left or centre of defence.

Arsenal have had a busy period in the transfer window, signing Nicolas Pepe for a club record fee and securing a deal for Dani Ceballos on loan from Real Madrid.

Celtic are unhappy that their valuation has yet to have been met, but Arsenal are expected to seal a deal for the defender before the transfer window slams shut.

“Obviously the window in England shuts on Thursday,” said Celtic manager Lennon.

“It can be an unsettling period for any player. We have rejected two bids and the clubs know the valuation that we value Kieran [Tierney] at and it’s not been met.

“He is dealing with it very well. We are living in an age now where it’s coming at you from all angles, especially on social media.

“He is only 22. We have to be mindful of that as well. He is trying to keep his feet on the ground and stay focused on the present.”
