The Liverpool vs. Arsenal match will be played on Saturday, March 4, at the Anfield stadium, Liverpool. This is the derby match of English Premier League round 27. Arsenal is currently 4th on the table with 50 points, while Liverpool is 5th on the table with 49 points at the moment.
Liverpool recorded only one victory in their last seven matches in all competitions, but that win came in the derby game against Tottenham. In three out of the previous five games in all competitions, Liverpool conceded two or more goals.
Arsenal recorded two victories and three defeats in their last five games in all competitions. However, they scored at least one goal in the last 25 matches in all competitions.
HEAD TO HEAD
In their previous ten meetings Liverpool recorded two victories, Arsenal beat Liverpool four times, while four matches ended as a draw. In six out of those ten games, we saw over 3.5 goals.
After a successful start of the season, and a hype among Liverpool fans that this is finally their year, Liverpool experienced a complete loss of form, and they are even out of the top four at the moment. If they lose the forthcoming match against Arsenal, their chances of finishing in the top four will be minimal. In the future two weeks, Liverpool will face Manchester City and Everton too, and these three matches will probably decide their fate.
Arsenal encountered similar obstacles. They suffered a humiliating defeat in Champions League - 5:1 in Munich against Bayern, and it their season seems like an old movie we are watching all over again, and we know what will happen. If they lose the match against Liverpool, Arsenal will drop outside the top four, and it is vital for them to stay undefeated in the forthcoming game.
At the defensive end, both teams made a series of silly mistakes in the last couple of weeks. On the other hand, their attacking displays were solid. Therefore, we expect to see lots of goals in the forthcoming match.
