Arsenal prepare for this fixture coming off the back of a 3-3 Premier League draw against West Ham United.
In that match, Arsenal had 64% possession and 16 shots on goal with 7 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Arsenal was Alexandre Lacazette (82'). On the other side, West Ham United had 15 shots at goal with 5 on target. Jesse Lingard (15'), Jarrod Bowen (17'), Tomáš Souček (32', 38' Own goal) and Craig Dawson (61' Own goal) scored for West Ham United.
It’s been seldom in recent times that Arsenal have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. In fact, The Gunners have been scored against in 6 of their previous 6 clashes, letting in 8 goals during that time.
Liverpool come into this encounter following a 0-1 Premier League win over Wolverhampton Wanderers in their previous outing.
In that match, Liverpool had 48% possession and 10 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target. The only player to score for Liverpool was Diogo Jota (45'). Wolverhampton Wanderers got 9 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target.
A succession of accomplished showings from the Liverpool defensive players has seen their ‘goals against’ tally standing at 4 from their previous 6 fixtures combined. During the same period, their forwards have scored 5. That kind of pattern won’t necessarily be carried forward into this next game, of course.
Their past results show that Liverpool:
- have not beaten Arsenal in games played away from home for the previous 3 matches in the league.
- are undefeated in their previous 2 league matches away from home.
Head to head
Looking over their past head to head clashes going back to 24/08/2019 shows that Arsenal have won 1 of these games and Liverpool 2, with the number of drawn matches standing at 3.
Loads of goals were seen in those games, too - 23 in total at an average of 3.83 goals per meeting.
Team News: Arsenal
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta does not have any fitness worries whatsoever coming into this match thanks to a completely injury-free group available for selection.
Team News: Liverpool
Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp has to choose a team with limited availability. Roberto Firmino (Knee Injury), Virgil van Dijk (Ruptured cruciate ligament), Joel Matip (Ankle Injury) and Joe Gomez (Patella problems) are those who can’t be considered.
We think that Arsenal may not find it easy to get anything against this Liverpool lineup who we reckon should manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
We’re therefore predicting a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 0-1 advantage for Liverpool when the full-time whistle blows.
Should be interesting.
