Gunners or Reds hot clash at Emirates Stadium as we look at the best predicted lineup and key details for Arsenal vs Liverpool for EPL 2022-23.
Arsenal, the table toppers will be beaming with confidence after winning the North London derby against Spurs last week. On the other hand, Jurgen Klopp, manager of their gameweek’s opponent Liverpool has admitted that his team is lacking in confidence more than anything else.
Arsenal are maintaining a 100 % home record this season by winning 4 out of that many matches. Their only loss has come in an away fixture against Manchester United. On the other hand, after playing every possible encounter and fighting for quadruple to the very end of the last season, Liverpool never looked like the same team in the new season. They are yet to win an away game this season, drawing twice and losing one.
Arsenal need to win such fixtures against the ‘Big 6’, if they want to challenge City for the title who are sitting just one place below at 2nd position with 1 point less than Gunners. Elsewhere Liverpool will be looking to build some momentum after a 2-0 win against Rangers in the Champions League fixture midweek.
If Liverpool were the dominating team in the 70s and 80s then Arsenal had the upper hand in the late 90s and 2000s. Not much to choose between the two teams if we look overall record. However, in recent times, Liverpool are certainly the better team losing only once and winning 9 out of the previous 14 fixtures against Arsenal.
