A huge match in the run-in for Arsenal comes at Anfield this weekend, as one of their trickiest assignments comes in the form of Liverpool. The Gunners come into the weekend with a healthy eight-point advantage over Manchester City after winning each of their previous six league matches. But, this could be a pivotal showdown, as Arsenal’s advantage could slip to five before a showdown between the rivals.
A lot has been made of Arsenal’s poor record at Anfield, as the Gunners are without a win in this exact fixture since September 2012. Since that 2-0 win, Arsenal has lost on six of nine league visits. Each of their previous two league visits has seen Arsenal concede a total of seven goals and net just once in response.
Many believed Liverpool had turned a corner following their 7-0 demolition of Manchester United before the international break. However, since then, the Reds have lost three of their previous four matches in all competitions, and have found the back of the net on just one occasion. A European push remains incredibly unlikely, as the Reds find themselves seven points off the top four.
Jurgen Klopp cut an increasingly frustrated figure throughout Liverpool’s midweek 0-0 draw against Chelsea, with the Reds being outplayed for long periods. However, at Anfield, their record remains strong, as they have lost just once in 13 matches.
This is a fascinating showdown between Arsenal and Liverpool this weekend. Arsenal’s record at Anfield is a huge concern, but we believe that this is a much better team than the ones that have suffered heavy defeats in recent seasons. We could see the Gunners passing this test, with Bukayo Saka netting.
