Lord Sugar makes prediction about Arsenal v Liverpool opener

Lord Sugar is already looking forward to Arsenal's first game of the Premier League season

Lord Sugar believes that Arsenal’s clash with Liverpool on the opening weekend of the Premier League season will “set the template” for both teams.

The Gunners will host the Reds at The Emirates later this month as Arsene Wenger’s men look to kick off the campaign with a win.

Liverpool, meanwhile, are set to travel down to London as they bid to get their first full season under new manager Jurgen Klopp off to a positive start.

Lord Sugar used his personal Twitter account to predict the Premier League’s top six at the end of the 2016-17 campaign earlier this month.

He placed Arsenal third and Liverpool fifth in what promises to be a thrilling campaign in the English top flight.

And the former Tottenham Hotspur chairman is now clearly looking forward to the opening weekend of the new campaign.
