It will be interesting to see how Liverpool players will react after suffering a disappointing 3-1 defeat to Leicester City at King Power Stadium on Monday evening.
The Reds will have an ultimate test this weekend when they host fellow rivals for the top four positions and the Champions League spots Arsenal.
Jurgen Klopp has had a roller-coaster season with Liverpool. The Reds have opened the campaign in a super strong fashion, but as the time passed by they lost touch with Chelsea in the battle for the first position and even the top four positions are heavily challenged after a poor series of results.
Klopp’s lads seemed to have gotten back on track with the important home win over Spurs, but they returned to the old habits with the poor display at King Power.
Arsenal don’t have any better campaign as Arsene Wenger holds on to his favourite fourth position. The team has been lacking the consistency for the last couple of years and nothing seems to be changing as the years go.
The Gunners will come in the game after a hard-fought 0-2 win over Sutton United in FA Cup. The painful 5-1 defeat to Bayern Munich is still something their fans remember and the team will be desperate to pick up the good result at Anfield.
Liverpool vs Arsenal: Head to head
Last two head to head matches offered a real drama. The one from the first part of the season ended in a 3-4 win for the Reds who have been enjoying a terrific form back in August last year. Coutinho, Mane and Lallana were on target for Klopp’s side.
The last game at Anfield, however, ended in a 3-3 draw in January last year. Six of the last seven meetings between the two sides have seen the option of both teams netting and at least three goals.
Liverpool vs Arsenal: Prediction
Liverpool are 1/1 favourites to claim the victory which is something we would not agree with after the horrific performance they showed against the reigning champions.
Anyhow, both teams have been quite easy to break down lately and we can easily see a goal fest this Saturday. The top options for anytime goalscorers would certainly be Mane for Liverpool (11 goals so far in the season) and Alexis for Arsenal (17 goals).
