Captain Jordan Henderson and Fabinho returned to Liverpool's midfield for the visit of Arsenal in their Premier League game on Saturday.

They were the only two changes made by manager Jurgen Klopp as he looked to extend his side's 100 per cent record against the only other top-flight side who entered the weekend with two wins out of two.

Arsenal gave a full debut to summer signing Nicolas Pepe.

In a relentless opening half, Nicolas Pepe went close to scoring on his first start for Arsenal with several efforts.

But it was Liverpool who took the lead when, with half-time approaching, Joel Matip nodded home a powerful header from the corner to open the scoring.
