Arsenal – Liverpool
Arsenal hosts Liverpool in a game from the 19th round of the English Premier League.
Arsenal are currently 5th in the Premier League with 33 points won so far. The team’s record so far is 10 wins, 3 draws and 5 defeats. The Gunners’ main goal remains a finish in the Top 4 and a return to the Champions League. Right now Arsenal are on just one point behind Liverpool and the 4th place.
In its last five matches Arsenal won twice, made two draws and lost once – against Manchester United. In the last round of the league Arsenal enjoyed a 1-0 home win against the struggling Newcastle United.
As we just said, Liverpool are 4th in the standings with 34 points. The Reds are not as much consistent as they would like to. They have a record of 9 wins, 7 draws and 2 defeats so far. Before the start of the season Liverpool’s fans were hoping that their favourite club will challenge for the title, but now this is not a possible target fo the club from Anfield.
In its last five games Liverpool are unbeaten. Jurgen Klopp’s team won three times and made two draws. In its last game Liverpool played very good and scored four goals during the visit to Bournemouth.
Let’s have a look at the team news before the game.
Arsenal will be without the injured Olivier Giroud, Aaron Ramsey and Santi Cazorla, while Shkodran Mustafi is doubtful with an injury. Everyone else at the Emirates is fit and ready for the challenge.
Liverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp is without the services of Alberto Moreno and Nathaniel Clyne, while the big question is about the condition of the Egypitan star Mohamed Salah. He’s having a hamstring strain, so it’s not clear if he’d be able to play against Arsenal.
