Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool return to action on Saturday morning after what feels like an eternity. Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal stand in Liverpool’s way, yet how has the German faired against Arsenal as a manager?

In total Jurgen Klopp has faced off against Arsenal 19 times and holds a record of nine wins, four draws and six losses.

Klopp's first match against Arsenal came while still Borussia Dortmund manager during a champions league group match which resulted in a 1-1 stalemate.

While he was Dortmund manager, Klopp would play Arsenal a further five times in the Champions League; this includes Dortmund's 2013/14 campaign which saw the Black and Yellow reach the final.

Once making the switch to Liverpool, Klopp would play out some high scoring matches against the Gunners.

The first of these being a 3-3 draw at Anfield thanks to a brace from Roberto Firmino and a last minute equaliser from Joe Allen in what was a blustery evening.

While playing Arsenal as Liverpool manager, Klopp's teams have put 3 or more goals past Arsenal on nine occasions. Four goals have happened four times and five goals on two occasions. 

The most recent set of three goals came in this seasons Anfield fixture which saw Liverpool run out 3-1 winners.

The Emirates is the venue for this seasons game and last time out Liverpool were defeated 2-1 so revenge will be on the cards.

Klopp has put four goals past Arsenal on their own turf before and winning again would boost the Reds’ top four hopes greatly.

Klopp will hope his side can put a show on when they visit Arsenal on Saturday morning.
