Arsenal vs Liverpool Match Preview
With Manchester City looking too good at the moment for the rest of the Premier League, the teams below are jostling for the remaining three Champions League qualification spots. Arsenal and Liverpool are battling hard too, which means the Arsenal vs Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, December 22 promises to be an all-action encounter. Check out our match preview, betting tips and predictions for the match between Arsenal vs Liverpool.
Arsenal’s season has been a disappointing one so far as they find themselves fifth in the Premier League after 18 games (33pts, W10, D3, L5). That’s a whopping 19 points off the leaders Manchester City and it would take more than a miracle for them to win the title. The pragmatic chance is to qualify for the Champions League and get back there after one-year hiatus. They currently are one point away from the fourth-placed Liverpool and should they defeat the Reds this weekend, it would be a six-pointer! The Gunners may have secured their League Cup semis by defeating West Ham 1-0, but they are far from convincing in the Premier League in recent weeks. Their last four matches saw them win just once (W1, D2, L1) and it was the victory against Newcastle United.
Liverpool’s incredible sequence of staying unbeaten in the Premier League now stands at nine games (W6, D3). The last time they lost was two months back in October at Tottenham Hotspur. The Reds are currently fourth in the table after 18 games (34pts, W9, D7, L2), although only three points separate them from the seventh-placed Tottenham. They are much more lethal away from home, as they have won their last four away games. In the process, they have scored an incredible 16 goals (avg. of 4.0 per game) while conceding a mere two (avg. of 0.5 per game). They have scored at least two goals in six of their nine trips this season. Although their opposition in these matches hasn’t been up to the standard of Arsenal, the visitors will start as favourites in this Arsenal vs Liverpool fixture.
