Liverpool vs. Arsenal: Premier League – Match Preview

Arsenal travel to Anfield to face a struggling Liverpool side in Saturday’s evening Premier League kick-off.

Liverpool were beaten 3-1 away at Leicester City on Monday night, with Jamie Vardy scoring twice.

Leicester hadn’t scored a league goal in 2017, yet dominated a poor Liverpool side.

Arsenal haven’t played in a fortnight since a 2-0 win away at non-league Sutton United in the FA Cup.

Goals from Lucas Perez and Theo Walcott secured a comfortable win for the Gunners.

Premier League form: Liverpool W1 D1 L3; Arsenal W3 D0 L2
Premier League top scorers
Liverpool – Sadio Mane 11 goals
Arsenal – Alexis Sanchez 17 goals

Match history
The match between the pair earlier in the season was a classic, as Liverpool recovered from a goal down to win 4-3 at the Emirates Stadium.

The meeting at Anfield last season was another goalfeast, as the pair shared six goals in a 3-3 draw!

Team news
Jordan Henderson and Dejan Lovren are both likely to miss Saturday’s fixture for the hosts.

Ragnar Klavan is set to replace Lucas Leiva in defence, with the Brazilian struggling in an unfamiliar role last time out.

Granit Xhaka is likely to start given the fact Mohamed Elneny is set for a spell on the sidelines with a foot injury.

Mesut Ozil and Laurent Koscielny are both doubts, but are likely to feature.

Expected starting XI’s
Liverpool (4-3-3): Mignolet; Clyne, Matip, Klavan, Milner; Wijnaldum, Can, Lallana; Mane, Firmino, Coutinho
Arsenal (4-2-3-1): Cech; Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal; Xhaka, Coquelin; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Iwobi; Sanchez
