Arsenal vs Liverpool preview – Team news and interesting stats

Arsenal vs Liverpool preview

Arsenal host Liverpool on Sunday night knowing a win will guarantee their spot at the top of the Premier League charts for a further week.

For some, it is also a match which will put the Gunners alongside Man City as serious contenders for the Premier League title, however absurd it may sound to others.

Here are few things that you should know before this weekend’s heavyweight clash:

Team News

  • Apart from Emile Smith Rowe and Mohamed Elneny, Mikel Arteta will have the option to pick anyone.
  • Whereas Jurgen Klopp is less fortunate in this department. Andy Robertson is set to miss the game, alongside Naby Keita, Curtis Jones and former Gunner Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Thiago also seems to be a doubt, after the player was not seen in the latest training session.

Stats

  • Gabriel Jesus has been involved in six goals in his eight Premier League games against Liverpool (4 goals, 2 assists).
  • Diogo Jota has six goals in eight Premier League appearances against the red half of London. He is averaging a goal every 67 minutes, the best ratio of any player in Premier League history to play at least 200 minutes against the Gunners.
  • We have lost our last four in a row against the Reds, but have never lost five league games in a row.
  • Arsenal are on a run of 13 Premier League matches without a clean sheet against Liverpool, conceding 39 goals in those games. We have only had one longer run against an opponent in the competition: 14 versus Man City (ongoing).
  • Liverpool have yet to win away from home in the Premier League this season, drawing twice and losing once in their three games – not since 2010/11 under Roy Hodgson have the Reds failed to win any of their first four away league games in a single campaign.

I think this is the first time in a very long time that Arsenal are going into the game as favourites to claim all three points. Despite their recent form, the game against Liverpool will not be easy at all.

Thus, Mikel Arteta’s men must be ready for the challenge ahead If they wish to continue their winning run at their fortress, The Emirates Stadium.

  1. Yes, Chris Suction of the BBC Sports’ Premier League Football Match Predictions has predicted a 4-1 home win for Arsenal againsr Liverpool tomorrow. His invited guest says, Arsenal will win the match 2-1. JustArsenal said it will be 3-1 win to Artetal. And I in my comment on JustArsenal give it to Arsenal 4 nil home win.
    With the BHA vs Totts result yet to come. But MNC at home walloping of S’ton 4 nil. And Chelsea with a game in hand beating Wolves 3-0 at the Bridge has put pressure on us Arsenal to beat Liverpool and go back to the top of the EPL. At which MNC have leapfroged us today to 1st on the Log.
    Therefore, if Arsenal are to retake their leadership of the League from MNC tomorrow, and continue to keep their up distance from Chelsea, Spurs and others. Arsenal MUST at the Ems tomorrow beat Liverpool, irrespective of whatever may be the numerous wins which the Reds have in the past gotten at the Ems over the Gunners will not count in the match encounter as long as the Gunners deny the Reds from getting any kind of points result in the match. But instead, collect for themselves all the 3 points at stake in the match to the bag for Arsenal.
    My Arsenal starting XI foe the match who I am sure us are very familiar with them are:
    Ramsdale;
    White Saliba Gabriel Tier/Zin;
    Partey Odegaard Xhaka;
    Saka G Jesus Martinelli.

  2. This is likely to be a tough close match. Difficult to call even if Arsenal start as slight favourites.
    Liverpool still have a great side and should be respected as such.

  3. I think will not be easy for Arsenal to win the game but i am giving the home side 2:1 win in condition that if they hold the middfield very well.

  4. Arsenal look great but I feel still short of centre back and twenty goal striker . Liverpool have problems ans therefore I go for 3:1 Arsenal
