Arsenal vs Liverpool
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 3rd November 2018
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Emirates Stadium (London).
There will be a loud buzz at the Emirates Stadium as Arsenal welcome Liverpool for this Premier League derby on Saturday evening. Both teams are high contenders for the league title and are in great form. Notably, Arsenal will be striving to extend an eight-match unbeaten run in the Premier League. On the other hand, Liverpool is yet to taste defeat in the top flight this season.
Arsenal has been scoring goals in almost every matchup and they will have high confidence for this Saturday clash. The gunners will want to impress their fans at home and show them they are capable to win the league title. However, this will not be easy as said. After a devastating start, the Gunners have embarked on a 14 game unbeaten run in all competitions. On Wednesday evening, they thrashed Blackpool in their Carabao cup fixture.
Last weekend, they failed to win against the Eagles in a matchup that almost seemed a sure win for them. This derby against the Reds will not be an easy one. What we should be sure to witness in this game is Arsenal finding the back on the net of their opponents several times.
Everyone is keen to see whether the Reds can continue their unbeaten run as they hit the road to North London on Saturday night. They are currently enjoying their excellent team form and will be waiting to demonstrate their might in this game.
After the draw against the reigning champions, they managed to come back to win two consecutive matches against Huddersfield and Cardiff. They are just below the league leaders with a goal difference. Klopp’s men are likely to maintain their attacking style in this matchup. Therefore, we should see them score.
