In their last match over the weekend Liverpool played to a disappointing 1-1 away draw to West Brom. They were simply unable to break down a well organized team and were fortunate that their lone goal was not struck off for offsides.
At home this season Liverpool has won eight out of their last nine matches in the Premier League. They have also scored at least two goals in nine consecutive home matches in the Premier League including five that they have scored four or more goals.
The Gunners have continued to surprise pundits by continuing to win despite multiple injuries to key players. They have won six out of their last seven Premier League matches while scoring at least two goals in their last five.
Arsenal remain at the top of the Premier League with a two point lead over both Manchester City and Chelsea. They are also eight points clear of Liverpool in fourth place. They still have several players out including their newest signing Kim Kallstrom. Mathieu Flamini is still serving his three match ban while Aaron Ramsey, Yaya Sanogo, Theo Walcott, and Jack Wilshire are all listed as injured. Jack Wilshire and Theo Walcott could possibly make returns.
My pick is a draw. In their previous six meetings Arsenal has won three with two draws and one Liverpool win, which came back in 2011.
This should be a good, close match and one in which Arsenal could really be missing the midfield abilities of Flamini to slow down Liverpool’s attack, but both teams have their own weaknesses and strengths and it’s going to come down to which team will be able to impress their tactics on the game.
