After finishing the previous campaign with a victory against Newcastle United, Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool look to begin the new season on a high. Speaking to the media ahead of the pre-season friendly against RB Salzburg in Austria, the German tactician revealed that the team's training has been promising, while also claiming that the players have been put to an intense schedule. 

On the other hand, Mikel Arteta is set to begin his first full season as the Gunners manager, and there couldn't be a better way to begin for him perhaps than to clinch a title. The Emirates-based outfit came from behind to defeat Frank Lampard's men in a FA Cup final thriller at Wembley. The Arsenal manager is, however, critical of the timing of the final, stating that the Community Shield could have been played a bit later.

Meanwhile, Arsenal saw the late arrival of four Gunners due to being placed under self-isolation, including goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez. He is likely to be replaced by Bernd Leno between the sticks.
