Despite beating West Ham United within the Carabao Cup, Arsenal will look to improve their Premier League performances as they take on a strong Liverpool side this weekend. Within recent times, the Gunners have recorded just one win within their last four fixtures. Furthermore, they currently sit 5th in the table, however, should they beat Liverpool in this fixture, it could see them leap frog the Reds and into the Champions League places.

However, Arsenal couldn’t have picked a worse time to play the Reds, as they are fresh off a 4-0 victory against Bournemouth from last weekend. In addition to this, throughout the month of December, Liverpool have converted 19 goals whilst conceding just two. Therefore, due to this statistic alone and both defences being known for defensive mistakes, mainly Dejan Lovren, we expect this to be a high scoring fixture.

Team News

  • Giroud, Ramsey and Coquelin will not feature due to recent injury problems.
  • Sturridge and Matip will not feature for Liverpool, however, Emre Can is likely to return to the starting line up.

Potential Arsenal Starting XI: Cech; Monreal, Mustafi, Koscielny; Bellerin, Wilshere, Xhaka, Kolasinac; Sanchez, Ozil; Lacazette

Potential Liverpool Starting XI: Mignolet; Gomez, Lovren, Klavan; Robertson; Oxlade-Chaimberlain, Henderson, Can; Salah, Firmino, Coutinho
