Arsenal are beginning to show signs of moving on from the mediocre days of Arsene Wenger under Unai Emery. The Gunners’ 2-1 win over Blackpool in midweek was the 13th consecutive time they have played a game without losing, and 12 of those matches have ended in wins for them.
Their Premier League winning run came to an end last weekend against Crystal Palace and many think that the bubble has burst for them, but that could be far from reality. The Gunners have only kept 4 clean sheets in 15 competitive games this season, and they have conceded 13 goals in 10 league games already, it would a tough day for them against this rampaging Liverpool side.
Liverpool come into this game in the second position only on goal difference as they look to win the Premier League this season. They beat Cardiff City 4-1 last weekend, the second time they had scored 4 goals in less than a week. The Reds had no midweek engagement, so they would be coming into this game fresher than their hosts.
Liverpool have won 8 of their 10 league games this season, including 4 wins in 5 away games, so they would be pretty confident that they can continue their fine run of form against the Gunners here.
Liverpool have won three and drawn three of their last six meetings with Arsenal, last losing to them in April 2015 at the Emirates.
