Jurgen Klopp says Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has no weaknesses apart from his fashion style

Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang and Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool face Arsenal later on Saturday in a top of the table clash.

The two sides have won both of their opening games and are the only teams with 100% records in the Premier League.

Liverpool will go into the game as favourites having been so impressive over the past year.

But they will be wary of the threat that Arsenal pose ahead of the game.

Unai Emery has built a fearsome attacking trio and one man Jurgen Klopp will know very well is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Aubameyang became a world star at Borussia Dortmund under the guidance of the German manager.

The two have a good relationship but will be on opposing sides on Saturday.

And Klopp has jokingly taken a pop at the Gabonese international's fashion sense ahead of the game.

"It is four years since I worked with him," Klopp said, per Goal.

"Everybody knows everything about everybody, that is how it is and there are no surprises.

"Auba has actually no real weaknesses apart from his fashion style.

“When we played them so far we could kind of defend him but it is never possible to do it 100 per cent properly because of the speed he has. It’s just difficult.

“We know that, we have to work with it, deal with it. We did it in the past, we have to do it again and create our own moments.”

Savage. Aubameyang is known for his extravagant fashion sense and it's clear that his former manager isn't a fan.

Klopp also talked about changing Aubameyang's position from winger to striker.

“He played as a winger at Saint-Etienne at that time, we needed a number nine because Robert Lewandowski was leaving us,” he continued.

“We thought long about it, then he came in and played on the wing. Later on we realised he is a really good central striker, a number nine as well.

“It was not immediate like this. He developed incredibly and became a goal machine and I have to say his finishing is incredible. Combine that with the speed and it is really interesting."
