Another week, another tough game for the Reds, who now face Arsenal, one of the title contenders this year. On the other side, the Gunners are coming to Anfield encouraged with a victory over Brighton, against whom they triumphed at home. Both teams love playing fast and flamboyant football, so the fans expect an interesting and eventful meeting.

Liverpool vs. Arsenal Preview

Liverpool

The Reds have been stopped at home against United. They didn’t lose, but on the other side, they didn’t win either. Yet the biggest surprise is that this event ended without any goals, which nobody expected, to be honest. 

After 11 consecutive victories, this was the first meeting in which Liverpool failed to win at Anfield. Throughout this incredible winning streak, the Reds scored at least twice in each event, also hitting the net three or more times in most cases. 

Just a few noticed that Liverpool has seven clean sheets at Anfield this year across all the competitions. Even though their defense performs solidly, we can’t say that the media gives it enough credit. 

Arsenal

The Gunners are in solid shape as well. Seven victories, one draw, and two losses throughout the past ten meetings in all competitions is an excellent record. Arteta’s boys are still in the title race, and they advanced to the knockout stage of the UEFA Champions League. 

What is evident, though, is that the efficiency of Arsenal’s matches away from home significantly dropped. Only one in the previous four saw over 2.5 hits, which was unimaginable at the start of the season. 

Also, Arteta’s crew didn’t win in the past two outings, losing to Aston Villa in Birmingham, 1-0, and settling with one point against PSV, 1-1, in Eindhoven. They don’t have a good road record against better teams, as they lost to Villa, Newcastle, and West Ham.

Liverpool vs. Arsenal Head to Head

Last year’s meetings between these two teams saw fireworks and nine goals in total. The first clash, at the Emirates, ended with Arsenal’s 3-2 victory, following a superb performance on both ends. Meanwhile, the second clash concluded without winners, despite Arsenal having a 0-2 lead after the opening 30 minutes. The final result was 2-2. 

Liverpool vs. Arsenal Predictions

The stakes are high, but expecting that such a situation would force Klopp or Arteta to modify their usual style of play isn’t real. The offensive potential on both ends is fantastic, and we can’t suggest anything other than betting on both teams netting. We respect both Liverpool’s and Arsenal’s defense, yet the most logical outcome here is to see them each concede at least one goal.

Our verdict: Both teams scorings
