Arsenal vs Liverpool Preview

Arsenal vs Liverpool

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium: Emirates Stadium

Date: 4th Febuary 2024

Kick-off time – 16:30 GMT

Arsenal will welcome Premier League leaders Liverpool to the Emirates this Sunday in a game with massive implications for this season’s title race.

The Gunners and Liverpool alongside Manchester City are the favourites for the title this season, with the trio separated by five points But Mikel Arteta’s side can reduce the gap between them and Jürgen Klopp’s side to three points if they win this historic 200th league meeting between both sides.

However, winning here will require them to put in a stronger shift than their two recent meetings with Liverpool having failed to win against the Reds in two meetings this season (D1, L2), including a 2-0 loss in the FA Cup here at the Emirates. They did win this fixture 3-2 last season though and tend to start well in this fixture as the Gunners have opened the scoring within ten minutes in the last three top-flight H2Hs.

But even an early lead may not trouble Liverpool whose fighting spirit is the reason they’re top of the pile as no side has won more points from losing positions this season than Klopp’s men (19).

Moreso, the visitors travel to London full of confidence after despatching Chelsea in their last outing to extend their Premier League winning run to four games. However, interestingly, the last Premier League team to take points off them is Arsenal who they drew 1-1 at Anfield.

So another defencive masterclass by Arteta could prove the difference, seeing the Gunners have kept a clean sheet in six of their last ten home games, starting with a shutout against Manchester City. The Reds will prove the toughest of tests though, as scoring in 16 consecutive league H2Hs means no side has scored more Premier League goals against Arsenal than Liverpool’s 108.
