The Liverpool vs. Arsenal match will be played on Sunday, August 27, at the Anfield Stadium, Liverpool. Liverpool is currently 7th on the table with four points, while Arsenal is 11th on the table with three points. This is the third round derby match of Premier League 2017/18 season.
In their previous ten meetings, Liverpool won three matches, Arsenal recorded three victories, while four games ended in a draw. Liverpool is currently in a series of two victories and four games without a defeat against Arsenal.
After a shaky start in the domestic league, Liverpool easily eliminated Hoffenheim from the last qualifying round for Champions League and their self-confidence level is high again. However, the Coutinho saga hasn't ended yet - nobody knows if the Brazilian playmaker will stay at the club or leave to PSG or Barcelona. The interesting thing about that plot is that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain might replace Coutinho in Liverpool! The English international is unhappy in Arsenal, and he refused to extend his contract recently.
After a defeat in Stoke, Arsene Wenger is under immense pressure again. The French manager was unhappy with the defensive display of his team in the previous game. However, in that three-man defense, neither of the players is primarily center back. The experiment with the team might end badly for the experienced manager. Alexis Sanchez should be back in the starting lineup, although he is still refusing to extend the contract with the club.
It is tough to predict the outcome of this match. We expect an exciting game, with lots of goals scored.
