Preview: Liverpool vs Arsenal – prediction, team news, line-ups

Arsenal will return to Premier League action on Sunday as they lock horns with Liverpool at Anfield. 

The Gunners eased past Leeds United 4-1 at the Emirates Stadium last week to maintain their eight-point cushion at the top. 

Mikel Arteta’s men were particularly impressive in the second-half as they scored three goals to make it an emphatic scoreline. 

Gabriel Jesus earned his name on the scoresheet twice while Ben White and Granit Xhaka also bagged a goal each to make it a one-sided home affair. 

With just nine matches remaining in the season, Arsenal are now top favourites to lift the Premier League title, a situation nobody could have imagined at the beginning of the 2022-23 campaign. 

They have consistently performed well this season, despite injuries to some of their key players.  

The North Londoners will now travel to Anfield, a place where they haven’t won for more than 10 years now. But can they break that record now? 

Considering the Reds’ recent struggles, the Gunners cannot find a better opportunity to claim a victory in Merseyside. 

Jurgen Klopp’s side are already out of the Champions League as well as the FA Cup, leaving them with only the top-four finish to fight for. 

However, even that target looks difficult for the 2020 English champions as they are currently 10 points off fourth-placed Manchester United. 

Their 7-0 thrashing of United last month suggested they have found their league form but their subsequent displays only served to bring huge disappointment for the fans. 

The Merseyside giants have been winless in their previous four matches in all competitions. Their most recent league encounter at Chelsea ended in a goalless draw, with both sides failing to break the deadlock despite boasting plenty of attacking talent. 

Team News 

Jurgen Klopp’s side face several injury woes this weekend, with Stefan Bajcetic, Naby Keita and Thiago Alcantara all on the treatment table at the moment. 

The availability of Luis Diaz is also doubtful even though he has returned to training. 

Meanwhile, Arsenal will be missing first-choice centre-back William Saliba who is nursing a back injury. 

Takehiro Tomiyasu, Mohamed Elneny and Eddie Nketiah will also sit out Sunday’s game as they are suffering from injury issues as well.

Liverpool vs Arsenal prediction 

Arsenal are high on confidence at the moment. They have won their previous seven league fixtures since the 3-1 defeat to Manchester City in February. 

The Gunners’ Anfield record has been very poor but they have a perfect opportunity to beat Liverpool this Sunday and prove their title credentials. 

A one-sided contest looks unlikely this weekend but Arsenal should secure full points and break their ‘Anfield jinx.’
