After a disappointing collapse to London-rivals Tottenham on Sunday, Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal will be hoping to bounce back and keep their chase for European football alive.
With one eye on their FA Cup clash at the weekend, The Gunners will want stop-the-rot against an opponent they’ve failed to beat on their last nine Premier League outings.
With just three wins in seven since the June restart, the home side faces another tough test in newly-crowned champions Liverpool who’re still chasing the 100-point barrier.
After their 100% Premier League home record was broken against Burnley, Jurgen Klopp’s side seems to have taken their foot ever-so-slightly off the pedal - giving a ray of hope to Arsenal.
But one thing is for sure, there will be goals; a whopping 15 of them have been scored between the two teams in their last three outings at the Emirates stadium.
