The Reds striker enjoys playing against Emery's team more than anyone else, and Al Hain-Cole expects him to have another productive game at Anfield

If previous meetings are anything to go by, goalmouth action is unlikely to be in short supply when Liverpool welcome Arsenal to Anfield on Saturday.

No Premier League fixture has seen more goals than encounters between this pair, with the most recent seven averaging five per game.

On target in three of his four appearances against the Gunners, Mohamed Salah is bet365’s 10/3 (4.33) favourite to get the ball rolling with the opener in this one, and priced at just 8/11 (1.73) to strike anytime.

Also boasting an impressive record against this opposition with four goals in six meetings for the Reds, Sadio Mane is available at 20/21 (1.95) to extend a prolific start to the campaign that has reaped three goals in two games so far.

However, nobody enjoys these fixtures more than Roberto Firmino, whose eight goals versus Unai Emery’s side is his best return against any opponent.

With seven of those coming in four matches at Anfield – including a hat-trick last season – odds of look particularly appealing on him finding the net once again.

There is also plenty of firepower at the other end of the pitch, where Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has picked up where he left off in his Golden Boot-winning first full season by scoring in each of the first two games this campaign.

The Gabon international can be backed at 13/2 (7.50) to maintain that 100 per cent record with the opener at Anfield, or 13/8 (2.63) to strike anytime.

Alexandre Lacazette was on target in the 1-1 draw at the Emirates last season, and is available at 11/5 (3.20) to open his account for the new campaign in high profile circumstances.

Restricted to substitute appearances so far, record signing Nicolas Pepe is priced at 3/1 (4.00) to announce himself with a first goal for Arsenal.
