There are plenty of parallels between these two teams in recent weeks as they have been frustrated at times but they are pushing for the top four. Liverpool have the greater firepower and the edge in recent matches so the visitors could take at least a point here.

The opening weekend of last season saw Arsenal and Liverpool face off at the Emirates in what was certainly entertaining start to proceedings for the 2016-17 campaign. Arsenal would go ahead but then go on to concede four unanswered goals. Although they rallied late on to make the score more respectable, it was Jurgen Klopp’s men who would win this encounter by four goals to three.
