Arsenal vs Liverpool
England – Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 15 July 2020
Kick-off at 20:15 UK/ 21:15 CET
Venue: Emirates Stadium.
The Reds have already made sure of the title, and still seem to be in the mood to deliver win after win. In order to break the 100-point record set by Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, the new champions will have to win the remaining three fixtures.
Considering that they have already been eliminated from the Champions League, Jurgen Klopp’s men have no need to take it easy in July, as so many other top-tier teams have to this season.
As such, we can count on them to give it all they can to secure the record. They have come too far to just let go now.
The Gunners are surely one of the best teams in the competition, but they really are no match for the new title-holders. Recent form of either squad, as well as recent h2h results suggest a Liverpool win this Wednesday.
Arsenal vs Liverpool: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse fixture had ended in a 3-1 win for Klopp’s men.
- They had also eliminated Mikel Arteta’s men from the EFL Cup this season.
- In fact, the Reds are unbeaten against this rival in the past five years.
- They had scored a total of 31 goals from the preceding nine clashes.
- Since 2016, the guests have scored three or more goals in all encounters but one, at this stadium.
Arsenal vs Liverpool: Prediction
Arteta’s men lost 2-1 on the road the last match-day, against arch-rivals Tottenham. In the meantime, the current European champions were held to a 1-1 draw at Anfield the past game week, by Burnley.
This unexpected draw has made it a bit tough for the Reds to go after the 100-point record. Anything other than wins from the remaining three games will deny them a chance to better that stat, and it just seems a gigantic waste to let this phenomenal season end on a sour note.
Consider that Klopp’s men have won the reverse fixture in style, and they are also unbeaten against this rival in the last five years. Importantly, they have been the best team in England this campaign, and their 21-point lead at the top vouches for that claim.
Furthermore, the newly-crowned team had scored a total of 31 goals from the last nine h2h games, and had won five of the former seven past PL h2h matches.
The Gunners are also winless in five of their last nine overall match-ups, and remained so in 11 of their past 18 appearances at this stadium.
Taking into account these observations, expect a Liverpool victory this Wednesday.
