STATS & FACTS
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.

MOST MEMORABLE MEETING
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.
