Arsenal VS Liverpool: Preview

Arsenal and Liverpool meet at The Emirates on Wednesday night, assumingly playing a neck to neck tie. Liverpool ended up beating Arsenal in the reverse fixture at Anfield with Mohamed Salah bagging a brace and Joel Matip scoring the third.

Arsenal are coming into this game following a 2-1 loss to their North-London rivals - Spurs, with their European Football ambitions being all but over as they drift 5 points away from Europa League qualifications.

Liverpool, on the other hand, come into the game drawing 1-1 against 10th place Burnley and dropping points at Anfield for the first time this season. Though already crowned champions of England, Liverpool continue their quest to break the record for most points in a single Premier League season. Currently sitting at 93 points, Liverpool will have to secure nine points and win three from their remaining three fixtures to break Manchester City's record of 100 points in the 2017/18 season. However, dropping points even in one, will cause them to either equal City's record or fall short by the smallest of margins.

Arsenal forward Eddie Nketiah is going to be serving the second of his three match suspension due to the red card he received against Leicester City. Bernd Leno, Gabriel Martinelli, Calum Chambers and Pablo Mari all remain injured.

Liverpool midfielder James Milner is unlikely to return to the lineup due to the injury he suffered lately. Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could be fighting for a midfield spot on Klopp's team sheet. Trent Alexander Arnold could be back at right back replacing Neco Williams after being given rest against Burnley.


Despite falling short against Tottenham, Arsenal played pretty well and created quite a few chances. They could have gone on to win the match, but Kolasinac and Mustafi's mistakes cost them good.

Liverpool, though have been very inconsistent since the restart, winning just three of their last six games despite of their high standards. Keeping these things in mind, I think both teams would share the points and settle for a 1-1 draw.
