Liverpool vs Arsenal: Preview
These two teams have a great history and are two of the biggest teams in PL since its inception. And they are also expected to have a fierce rivalry dating back to the 20th century.
However, luck has been different for the two teams in recent years. While the Reds have returned to the top of the hill in England, the Gunners are still struggling to maintain their status as one of the top four prospects.
The 2020-21 campaign saw both teams start on a positive note, with victories in the first two days of the game. It will surely end for at least one of these two as they lock horns at Anfield on Monday.
Judging by the attacking potential of both teams, the determination of either to regain their glory days, and ultimately the sheer rivalry between the teams, a fierce, goal-filled clash is expected.
Liverpool vs Arsenal: head to head (h2h)
- The last time these two men met on the field, Mikel Arteta’s men recorded a penalty victory in the FA Community Shield. This defeat certainly hurt Jurgen Klopp and his men.
- Before that, the Gunners had beaten this rival in the league, in the final phase of the previous season. Thus, they became one of the few teams to beat the Reds in the last season.
- At Anfield, the hosts are in a four-game winning round.
- In fact, 12 years have passed since the guests were able to secure a victory here.
Liverpool vs Arsenal: Prediction
Klopp’s men recorded a 2-0 away win on the final matchday against Chelsea. It was a confident victory for the Reds, as they had hit the road (they had struggled recently in away games) and against a team in the top four.
Meanwhile, Arteta’s men recorded a 2-1 home win over West Ham. They are actually on an eight game winning streak and have also won ten of their last eleven games.
They had also beaten Klopp’s men in the last two h2h meetings and won them a trophy last month (Community Shield). Plus, the Gunners are also in a three-game road winning round, with the latest in the streak coming against Leicester.
Meanwhile, the Reds have been the best team in the country for two years and are determined to defend their title this year. They also have an excellent H2H record against this opponent at this stage.
In fact, the six-time European champions are on a four-game winning streak in such matches on this pitch, and have also been undefeated at home for the last eight years against this opponent.
Expect a fierce encounter between the two of you. No team likes to play defense, and it should be 90 minutes of fun for anyone who enjoys football.
Expect a scoring party this Monday.
