And after comfortable victories over Newcastle United and Burnley in their two opening matches, the Liverpool clash has been touted as the Gunners' first real test of the new campaign.
Unai Emery is set to miss the services of key players ahead of the encounter, including Hector Bellerin, Kieran Tierney, Rob Holding and Mavropanos who are all set to sit out the trip as they recover from injuries.
The Arsenal boss will however be boosted with the availability of Mesut Ozil and Granit Xhaka, after both missing the win over Burnley.
As such, it remains to be seen if Emery will stick with a 4-2-3-1 system or revert to a three at the back formation to combat Liverpool's lethal attacking prowess.
However, should he stick to the formation, it would imply Xhaka will be brought back to the fold in place of Joe Willock as Nicolas Pepe is handed a full debut.
But the introduction of Pepe would see Alexandre Lacazette drop to the bench as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leads the attackline.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng former Arsenal midfielder, Ray Parlour, has written off the club's chances of lifting the Premier League title despite a bright start into the new season.
The Gunners are currently sitting second on the log with six points after winning two of their opening matches against Newcastle United and Burnley.
