Last five head-to-head meetings - Liverpool W2, Arsenal W1, D2.

This fixture usually promises goals, with 22 of them being scored in the last five encounters between the two clubs - an average of 4.4 goals per game during that period, and that's with a 0-0 stalemate thrown into the mix.

Arsene Wenger has not gotten the better of Jurgen Klopp in the Premier League, with two defeats and a draw in the three previous matches in which they have faced each other.

In those three matches, Liverpool have scored at least three goals a game, with 10 in total.

Roberto Firmino has scored three goals in his last three appearances against Arsenal.

Last season, Liverpool completed a league double over Arsenal for the first time since the 1999-2000 season under Gerard Houllier.

You have to go back to April 2015 for the last time that Arsenal beat Liverpool, when they ran out 4-1 winners at the Emirates.

These two clubs are Premier League ever-presents, meaning there have been 50 previous head-to-head meetings in the division. Of those 50, Liverpool have just edged proceedings with 18 wins to Arsenal’s 15, while there have been 17 draws.

The two teams played out a pulsating eight-goal thriller at Anfield back in 2009 in a match which ended 4-4. Not only was it a night that damaged Liverpool’s hopes of a first title since 1990, but Andrei Arshavin scored all four goals for the Gunners.
