On a Premier League weekend which will be dominated by tributes for the late Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, two of the biggest sides in the league face off. Liverpool make the trip down south to face Arsenal at the Emirates.


  • Arsenal seem to have been revived under Unai Emery following Arsene Wenger’s departure at the end of last season. They find themselves 4th after 10 games with seven wins, one draw and two losses. Their 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace last time out in the league ended an impressive run of 11 straight wins in all competitions.
  • Liverpool have been even better this term and are one of the three top-flight sides yet to have lost a league game. They are behind Manchester City in the table by just goal difference and have a great chance to mount a proper title challenge. They were emphatic in their last league game, beating Cardiff 4-1 in a dominant performance.
  • No player in the Premier League has scored more goals than Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang so far this season, with seven the Arsenal striker is joined by Eden Hazard at the top of the scoring charts.
  • One player that is just one behind him is Sadio Mane at Liverpool who has netted one more than last year’s Golden Boot winner, Mo Salah.


Liverpool’s recent record against Arsenal will fill them with confidence going into this one. The Reds have won three of the last four meetings and were last beaten by the Gunners in January 2016. It’s a game that historically produces a lot of goals with over 3.5 being scored in each of the last five games. Both teams have scored in four of those with Arsenal failing to score in the 4-0 loss at Anfield last term.


The hosts can go 3rd in the table with a win but they are certainly up against a side in top form. It seems as though Sokratis and Hector Bellerin will miss out through injury along with Laurent Koscielny, Sead Kolasinac, Nacho Monreal and Mohamed Elneny.

Ahead of Man City’s match on Sunday, Liverpool can go top of the league with three points in Saturday’s late kick-off. They have two midfielders who are doubts for the game as Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita are both recovering from injuries.

It’s a really tough game to call with Arsenal playing in front of their own fans and with Liverpool in great form. As often happens when the sides meet, both teams should score on Saturday evening and backing over 3.5 goals seems like a good bet. Although, the visitors have only conceded four in the league this term so the Gunners might struggle to net more than one.
