The three Liverpool players Arsenal need to watch out for at Anfield

Our biggest threats against Liverpool

Arsenal will travel to Anfield to face off against Liverpool this weekend, in what is turning out to look like one of the biggest games of the season for both sides. Both teams can’t afford to be dropping any more points as the Gunners look to close off the year and hopefully go into the new year still on top.

Anfield is a very hard place to go and get a result, but Arteta and his Arsenal side need to be prepared to do that if we want to win the title. Here’s a rundown of who I think are our biggest threats on the weekend.

First off is obvious, Mohamed Salah, with his freakishly good left foot is a clear and obvious threat when going forward, arguably one of the best players the premier league has ever seen and will be up for it as he usually is. Having already got 11 goals and 7 assists just in the Premier League this season, he will be looking to add to that tally and put on a good performance against Arsenal. Scoring mid-week against West Ham will only be motivation for him going into the weekend’s game and I expect him to be at his best.

New signing Dominik Szoboszlai has also been in good form since joining the club and brings a lot of dynamic play to the midfield. He’s very fast and likes a shot himself, but is also really good at building up play around him to push the ball down the wings and create more chances. He also managed to score mid-week in the EFL Cup against West Ham and was taken off after an hour, which I assume was to rest him for the game against us. Declan Rice will need to keep an eye on him and lock down the midfield to stop him making an impact.

Trent Alexander Arnold is also having a great start of the season and when necessary has been played in the midfield, but I’d expect him to at least start in defence. A great passer of the ball and creator of attacks, locking him down will be key if we want to win the game. He didn’t start mid-week but came on for half an hour and managed to get 2 assists in their 5-1 win over West Ham and will be looking to add to that tally and try punishing Arsenal on the counterattack. A real threat on set pieces too and Arsenal will need to stay focused and not take their eyes off him when in the defence.

A tough match-up but a must-win for both teams. Liverpool haven’t lost at home in a very long time and it will be a huge challenge for Arsenal to leave as winners, but hopefully they can get the job done.

What’s your thoughts Gooners?

  1. Saka,Martineli, Jesus Havertz,Rice and Odegaard are also some of the many players arsenal have that Liverpool have to watch or else they will pay with a heavy loss.

  2. This game is massive, arguably the biggest game of the season, in my opinion whoever win this one will goes on to crown champion.
    The momentum gain from a victory in this fixture will be huge.

    A die hearted Liverpool fan told me, this is the first time in many moons he is concerned of Arsenal, he went on that both games they lost looks highly suspicious, whatever the fan meant, I just have a fumny feeling this game wont be close, somthing big will happen.

    The fact Jergen Klopp is defending so heavily on the fans to take them across the line, tells you he maybe sharing similar sentiments as the fan.

  3. I agree with Daisy on the those she outlined but as @Naftali said, we also have a lot of players they should be wary of. The only thing that they’ve got and we have’nt is the support of their packed home crowd quite the opposite for us with our fans making a tiny fraction of it. All in all, if we are to get a result there we will have to suffer to earn it.

  4. Defending corners will also be so important in this one. Isn’t it nice to have Rice available this season? Now if Tomi were only available to shut down Salah again.
