Arsenal vs Liverpool Match Preview and Team News
Arsenal has a big chance to respond to their loss to Manchester City in the league in the last game when they host Chelsea in the first leg of their League Cup semi-final tie. The Gunners are coming from a 2-1 loss to league champions City, and after a fine run ahead of that game, they will hope it doesn’t shake their morale going into this game. Arsenal has scored in each of their last five matches and only managed two clean sheets in that process. Both sides have scored in three of their previous five games, and the same has happened in their last two home matches. Availability isn’t a big problem, with just the sole fitness concern for the Arsenal gaffer Mikel Arteta to be concerned about due to a largely intact group. Sead Kolasinac (Ankle Injury) is out of contention. Thomas Partey found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy. Nicolas Pepe showed why he was brought in. He has good dribbling, and speed is his advantage.
Liverpool will be disappointed at the result against Chelsea in their last game, having taken an early 2-0 lead, only for the game to end 2-2. They will hope they can rectify here, playing against a team they’ve really dominated in recent meetings. The Reds will be without Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, who left for AFCON 2021 after scoring against Chelsea on Sunday. They will also be without Naby Keita as they seek a first win in three matches. In their last five games, Liverpool has scored two or more goals in four, and four have produced over 2.5 goals. Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has multiple availability issues to deal with. Divock Origi (Muscular problems), Roberto Firmino (Corona virus), Joel Matip (Corona virus), Thiago (Corona virus).Naby Keita has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable.
