Tonight, Arsenal host Liverpool in an important game for the shape of the top 4. Liverpool are 1 point ahead of Arsenal and a win for either club will put them in 4th place. Let’s look at what could happen.
Arsenal Team News:
Arsenal are without Giroud, Ramsay and Cazorla with Wilshire expected to get the nod. Arsenal have escaped with 1-0 home wins in their last 2 games and have the worst record of the top six vs the top six. I would expect them to come out firing after losing 4-0 to Liverpool earlier in the season.
Liverpool Team News:
Matip, Moreno, Sturridge and Clyne are all unavailable so Liverpool will have to play an irregular back four. Liverpool ‘fab four’ are expected to play so goals are almost a guarantee in this match. Liverpool have the best record against the top 6 out of the top 6 in the league since Klopp’s appointment. However, they have been shakey recently but will have confidence after beating Bournemouth 4-0 (the same scoreline of the game between these clubs earlier in the season).
Prediction: Arsenal 1-3 Liverpool
