arsenal vs liverpool

Match Preview:

Arsenal face Liverpool on Monday night for their third Premier League game of the season.

The last time they met, Arsenal ran out 4-1 winners; but this time, the Gunners will be playing in front of their home fans for the first time since their 2-0 loss to West Ham. Between that time and now they have recorded a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace away.

Liverpool on the other hand are coming into the game after winning their first two games against Stoke and Bournemouth 1-0 each. But Arsenal would represent a tougher challenge, since they have taken all three points at Emirates only once since the Gunners moved into it.
