Top of the table clash at Anfield

Premier League leaders Arsenal visit Anfield as the top two in the table face off. Both sides will be hoping to steal a march on favourites Manchester City, who’s match against Brentford has been postponed due to City’s particpiation in the Club World Cup


Liverpool look to be genuine title challengers again. They will have been disappointed to be held at home by Manchester United last weekend and will be looking for the three points to leapfrog Arsenal. Wednesday saw the Reds march into the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup with a comprehensive win over West Ham United.

Stefan Bajcetic (calf), Thiago Alcantara (hip), Joel Matip (ACL), Andrew Robertson (shoulder), Alexis Mac Allister (knee), Diogo Jota (muscle) and new knee victim Ben Doak are all unavailable for Liverpool.

It was thought that Ryan Gravenberch had damaged his hamstring against Manchester United last weekend, however, reports now suggest that it was simply a case of delayed onset of muscle soreness (DOMS) and he is expected to return to the squad on Saturday after being rested against West Ham. The former Bayern Munich midfielder may have to settle for a place on the bench after Curtis Jones and Dominik Szoboszlai impressed against the Hammers.


Arsenal go to Anfield top of the table, knowing that a victory will open up a gap. After challenging for the title last season, Arsenal are looking to go one better. After defeats on the road at Aston Villa and Newcastle in recent times, Mikel Arteta’s side will be looking to come away with at least a point.

The Gunners will be without Jurrien Timber (knee), Fabio Vieira (groin), Takehiro Tomiyasu (calf) and Thomas Partey (thigh) at Anfield. Mohamed Elneny (hamstring) and Jorginho (foot) are also doubtful.


This promises to be a tight game that could go either way. Arsenal just came up short on their trips to Villa Park and St James’ Park. I expect that to be the case again. Liverpool will have been annoyed that they failed to see Man United off last weekend and will be keen to put that behind them. Home win.
