The 2019/20 Premier League season has only reached gameweek three but by the end of the weekend there will be just one or no teams remaining with a 100% record.

This is because the only two clubs to have won their opening two matches – Liverpool and Arsenal – meet at Anfield on Saturday (5:30pm).

After finishing runners-up to Manchester City with an incredible 96 points last term, Jurgen Klopp’s side have showed they are determined to go one step further and clinch the club’s first ever Premier League title this term.

The German’s impressive troops have so far defeated newly-promoted Norwich City 4-1 at Anfield before following that up with a gritty 2-1 victory at Southampton.

In the away corner, Arsenal will travel to Merseyside in good spirits as they also have six points in their back pockets.

After missing out on a top-four finish by just a point last season, Unai Emery knows the aim is to qualify for next year’s Champions League.

And the Spanish boss has seen his squad hit the ground running with victories at Newcastle United and at home to Burnley.

With both sides boasting an impressive array of forwards, this game could well be decided by the strikers on show.

Two of those are Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who shared the Golden Boot last year with Sadio Mane on 22 goals.

Salah scoring on the opening day against Norwich.

The Egypt superstar has already got off the mark in the top-flight this term and has an impressive record against the Gunners having netted four times in five unbeaten career appearances against the North London side.

Meanwhile, the clinical Aubameyang has also been in red hot form and has notched one more than Salah so far this term with the winner in both of his team’s opening victories.

Aubameyang has two goals in two Premier League games.

The Gabon international has only scored once in six matches against the hosts and that came for Lille back in March 2010.

So who will come out on top for their team at Anfield on Saturday evening? Here’s how these two star forwards performed in the Premier League last term…
