Arsenal will be up against it when they face Liverpool tomorrow evening but that does not mean that they cannot come away from Anfield with a result.
Liverpool is almost unbeatable at home right now, they have not lost a Premier League game on their own turf since Crystal Palace beat them 2-1 back in April 2017 but have drawn 10 of the 41 home game since that loss so it is not completely hopeless.
But if Arsenal is to get even a draw they will have to be on top of their game, get the basics right and take advantage of any opportunity that comes their way.
Take advantage of the Liverpool high line
The Reds really do play high up the pitch and Norwich City showed that you can get behind their backline and with the clinical form Aubameyang is in and the speed of the Arsenal front line then they must take advantage of the Liverpool high line every time they break up an attack and release that ball upfield very quickly.
Match Liverpool on the flanks
Do to them what they will do to us, quite simple. Alexander-Arnold and Robertson will be bombing down the flanks all game long, Monreal and Maitland-Niles should do exactly the same, make them defend the flanks, the more that happens the more the threat of Alexander-Arnold and Robertson is nullified.
Put pressure on Adrian
He is not a top-class keeper and Liverpool are weakened with him between the sticks, the more pressure that is put on him, whether that be from crosses, high balls or shots, the more chance he will make an error.
Slow the game down
Liverpool play at a high intensity, the more that is disrupted the more their momentum is checked and to do that Arsenal need not only possession but to hold on to the ball as much as they can. Breaking up the flow of the game will affect Liverpool far more than Arsenal.
Attack is the best form of defence
Arsenal have the front line to really bother Liverpool and the more they get the ball, the more they pressure Liverpool the less threat they pose to the Arsenal defence. Arsenal’s front line is as good as Liverpool’s and the more they get the ball the more chance there is of Arsenal getting a result from the game.
