Premier League: Liverpool vs Arsenal live
Arguably the biggest game of the weekend, Liverpool welcome Arsenal to Anfield in Round 12 of the Premier League campaign. The match kicks off at 5:30 pm(GMT) with referee Michael Oliver in charge of this big game. Both teams are in great form coming into this game as a win for either side will be a boost for their respective Premier League campaigns.
Liverpool are fourth on the table after eleven games. Jurgen Klopp’s men have won three, lost one and drawn one in their last five competitive games. Their last game was against West Ham in the league where they lost 3-2 in London to the Hammers. Yet to lose a game at home in the league, Liverpool will be hoping to bounce back from their defeat to West Ham.
Arsenal are in great form coming into this game. The Gunners sit fifth on the Premier League table and are on a run of ten matches without defeat in all competitions. In their last five games, Arsenal have won four and drawn one, an impressive run for a side that lost their first three Premier League games. A win for Arsenal will move them into the top four.
The last five competitive meetings between Liverpool and Arsenal have seen Arsenal win three and Liverpool win the other two games. The last game between these two sides was in the league last season, as Arsenal lost 3-0 to Liverpool at the Emirates. Diogo Jota scored twice with Mo Salah on the scoresheet as well.
Both teams will be confident coming into this game considering Liverpool’s home form and Arsenal’s recent form. Mo Salah is arguably the most in-form player in European football at the moment and he’ll fancy his chances coming into this game. Goals are expected to be scored at both ends with a draw the most probable outcome.
Liverpool XI: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Tsimikas; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Fabinho, Thiago; Salah, Jota, Mane
Arsenal XI: Ramsdale; Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tavares; Saka, Thomas, Lokonga, Smith Rowe; Lacazette; Aubameyang
