- Liverpool have won six of their 11 Premier League games, with just one defeat.
- Arsenal also have six wins, but have lost four of their matches.
- Liverpool won both Premier League meetings last season.
- Both teams have scored in eight of the last 10 meetings between the two sides.
Liverpool looking for a response
Arsenal are unbeaten in 10 games in all competitions but that run may well come to an end at Liverpool on Saturday.
Jurgen Klopp’s suffered a first Premier League defeat of the season in a 3-2 loss at West Ham prior to the international break and will be looking for a response when the Gunners visit.
Liverpool are still unbeaten at Anfield in the league but have drawn three of their five games. Two of those stalemates came against title rivals Manchester City and Chelsea, but they may well have too much for an Arsenal side who are still a bit of a work in progress in the late kick off on Saturday.
Reds can prevail in high scoring encounter
I’m expecting Liverpool to come out on top here, but an improving Arsenal side may well cause them a few problems and a home win with both teams to score is the main bet for this Premier League match-up.
The hosts have managed three clean sheets in their last five games but have been less solid at Anfield and have only managed two shut-outs at home in their last six games. One of those came against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League in a game where the Spanish side played with 10 men for an hour, while the other was a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace where the mid-table Eagles still managed to carve out 13 attempts.
Arsenal have scored in nine of their last 10 games and match-ups between these two sides usually produce a few goals. The corresponding fixture last season finished 3-1 and both teams have scored in eight of the last 10 meetings. Arsenal have only conceded four goals in total over those last 10 games so I’m not expecting Liverpool to run away with this one and a 2-1 win for the hosts is my correct score selection.
Smith-Rowe an outside anytime contender
There are plenty of Liverpool players who look viable options for an anytime goal but at a big price Arsenal’s rising star Emile Smith-Rowe appeals here. The 21-year-old has scored in each of his last three appearances in the Premier League and should head to Anfield in confident mood after opening his account for England in the demolition of San Marino over the international break.
