Arsenal travel away to face Liverpool at Anfield next weekend as they look to move top of the Premier League.
The two sides are joint-top of the table, as it stands, and are the only teams to have a 100% record so far.
Due to an injury to Alisson, Liverpool started former West Ham goalkeeper Adrian against Southampton at the weekend. The Spaniard almost cost the Reds the result as he kicked the ball straight at Danny Ings to gift Southampton a goal.
Some Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Adrian ahead of the game…

READ ARSENAL VERDICT
If Liverpool persist with passing it out from the back with Adrian in goal, Arsenal could find a lot of joy in pressing high up the pitch.
Unai Emery could get Aubameyang to press Adrian, with Alexandre Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe closing down the two centre-backs, forcing Liverpool into either gifting the ball to the Gunners or playing long.
This would result in Arsenal being able to dominate possession of the ball and dictate the flow of the game, as they restrict Liverpool’s ability to start attacks from the back – limiting the number of chances they can create going forward.
