Premier League Preview for Arsenal v Liverpool along with Predictions for every result in the EPL. Follow up each match with results and video highlights posted later in the week.
This is certainly the biggest match of the weekend with both teams getting a test to their title challenging ambitions. Only two points separate the sides with Arsenal in first and Liverpool in third.
Arsenal go into this week 10 clash with a 7-1-1 record and 22 points at the top of the table. They have scored the second most goals in the league with 20. They have scored two or more goals in all but three of their first nine matches including five of the last six. Where they have struggled is in defense where they have kept only two clean sheets and one of them was to bottom of the table Crystal Palace.
Liverpool have started to mount their own title ambitions this season with their 6-2-1 record to pick up 20 points through nine games. They have scored the third highest goals at 17 and allowed the fourth fewest goals at 8. They have scored two or more goals in five of their last six matches. Where they have struggled recently is in their ability to keep other teams from scoring. While they started out the season with three clean sheets and 1-0 wins they have since not kept a clean sheet and have twice allowed two goals in their two draws.
My prediction is for a draw with both teams scoring. This is going to be the first real big test for Arsenal and it will be interesting to see how they react. Liverpool certainly have a chance for a win in this, especially with their recent form and goal scoring ability.
