Liverpool vs Arsenal
2017/18 English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 27th August 2017
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Anfield (Liverpool).
Liverpool are a team in high spirits after securing their spot in the Champions League with a 6-3 aggregate win over Hoffenheim. The 4-2 win against the German side at Anfield on Wednesday ensured the Reds made an unbeaten start in all competitions this season. Their scoring form is commendable after netting 10 goals in the process.
The Reds have been one of the strongest home team in the league last season having picked up 12 wins and 5 draws from their 19 games, losing just twice. Also, they pose an incredible scoring rate of 2.3 goals per game.
Meanwhile, we saw two sides of Arsenal in a matter of two weeks. They showed brilliant fighting spirit to come back from goals down to earn a 4-3 win against Leicester. While they were toothless in the 1-0 defeat against Stoke City. Yet, these are early days of the league season, but the pressure is immediately back on Arsene Wenger as similar problems looms as in the previous season.
Injuries haven’t helped the Gunners at the start of this new season. But the team is given a boost with Ozil, Sanchez and Koscielny returning to full training and all three might start on Sunday evening.
