Arsenal vs. Liverpool Preview 

Manchester City will keep an eye on Arsenal live scores when the Gunners take on Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool at home in a Premier League Sunday showdown. Arsenal could enter the match losing their Premier League first spot if Manchester City manage to beat Southampton on Saturday. But a win against the mighty Reds will bring them right back to the summit of the league. 

Arsenal have an exciting team to watch this season. They are excelling in all metrics, playing a beautiful brand of football, and picking up victories ruthlessly. A defeat to Manchester United remains the only blemish in their otherwise spotless Premier League record.

More than local grabbing rights were at stake when Arsenal took on arch-rivals Spurs at home last Saturday. After losing to Manchester United, many rival fans questioned Arsenal’s ability to perform against the big teams. Mikel Arteta’s men had to deliver against their local rivals to prove that their strong start to the season was no fluke, and they did rise up to the occasion. 

Tottenham came to the Emirates with an unbeaten record. A draw would have brought the Lillywhites on par with their North London neighbours in the points table. But, Arsenal took control of the match early on and got their reward when Thomas Partey hit the net from a distance. Harry Kane restored parity from the penalty spot, but Gabriel Jesus put the home team ahead early in the second half. Emerson Royal saw a red for his clumsy challenge on Gabriel Martinelli and handed Arsenal a one-man advantage. Granit Xhaka scored the third for Arsenal minutes later and made sure that Arsenal would remain top after matchweek 9. 

On the other hand, Liverpool have been uncharacteristically below par this season. They started their Premier League mission with a two-all draw against newly promoted Fulham and then followed up with another draw against Crystal Palace and a defeat against a struggling Man United side. 

Things were not much different in their last Premier League match. Leandro Trossard bagged a hattrick for Brighton at Anfield, becoming the first opponent team player since Arsenal’s Andre Arshavin to take the match ball home from Liverpool’s turf. A Roberto Firmino brace and an Adam Webster own goal saved the hosts from a humiliating defeat. But a 3-3 draw against Brighton did no favour to their title ambitions. 

Arsenal will try to exploit Liverpool’s defensive woes and pick up another important win to stay on top of the league. Liverpool’s current form does not indicate that the Merseysiders will be able to stop a high-flying Arsenal side in their own territory. We call a 2-1 win for Arsenal.
