Liverpool vs Arsenal: Lineups and LIVE updates
After a fourth consecutive stalemate against Chelsea, Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool will look to play spoilsport in Arsenal’s title race at Anfield.
The Reds are in dire need of points if they want to secure a seat at the Champions League table, and a win in front of their faithful could be the first step towards a top-4 spot.
While Klopp’s men have a shambolic record playing on the road, the English heavyweights have accumulated 16 out of 18 available points when contesting at Anfield.
With the Reds being plotted in 8th place and is 13 points adrift from top-4, Klopp would be hoping to win maximum points against the league leaders.
A big positive before the fixture would be that the Merseyside outfit is enjoying a scintillating winning streak against Arsenal at home and could stretch it to 7 games on Sunday.
Arsenal’s parade toward their first Premier League title since the Arsene Wenger era doesn’t seem to hit a roadblock and Mikel Arteta would be hoping to avoid any mishaps at Anfield.
The Gunners are 5 points clear at the top with Manchester City chasing their throne but a win against Klopp’s men would put Arsenal in the driving seat and a week closer to the English crown.
The Gunner’s last trip to Merseyside ended in a defeat when they lost 1-0 to Sean Dyche’s Everton but the North London outfit will look to end their winless streak against Liverpool when they visit again.
The English heavyweights emerged victorious in the last clash between the two outfits at the Emirates and will look to replicate their heroics from October if they want to lift the English title.
