Liverpool hosts Arsenal in the derby of the 21st round in the Premier League. The match is Wednesday, January 13, from 20:00 GMT at “Anfield”.
Liverpool is on 8th place in the ranking with 30 points won and behind six of the Champions League zone. In their last match in the league they lost from West Ham United 0:2 as away and wiped best impressions of victories over Leicester and Sunderland.
Several days later, however, Jürgen Klopp’s side make it up to his fans with a victory at Stoke City as a guest in the first semifinal in the tournament for the League Cup. In their last match did “Liverpool” made a 2:2 during his visit in Exeter frome League Two in “FA Cup” as their composition was largely composed of adolescents.
The biggest problem for the team manager Jürgen Klopp has many injured players. In defense Skrtel and Lovro with injuries, while Kolo Toure and Mamadou Sakho are not in optimal shape. Striker Daniel Sturridge remains sidelined and captain Jordan Henderson and Philippe Coutinho are still recovering from their injuries. The only good news for the German specialist is the return of James Milner.
Arsene Wenger’s team takes first place in the standings with a total of 42 points, two more than second Leicester. Over the weekend, The Gunners achieved success in the “FA Cup” after turned Sunderland with 3:1 at “Emirates”.
Arsenal have won seven of their last eight games. The Gunners have won six of their ten away games in the league, conceding three losses and have failed to score only two of his visits. “Gunners” have lost just once in their last seven games at “Anfield” – three wins and three draws.
Arsenal also has a number of problems in its composition. Alexis Sanchez could return to play until next week, while Tomas Rosicky is expected to be back on the pitch at the end of this month. Longer-term absentees are Danny Welbeck, Jack Wilshere, Francis Coquelin and Santi Cazorla. Mathieu Flamini is expected to partner with Aaron Ramsey in midfield, while Mikel Arteta will remain on the bench after being sidelined for six weeks before being entered in the second half in the game against Sunderland.
In the first match between the two teams this season’s winner was aired after draw 0:0 in London. Last season on “Anfield” teams shared a point after a 2: 2, and “Emirates” Arsenal record a convincing success with 4: 1. In 92 games of the “Anfield” Livarpl ia 48 wins, 18 draws and 26 losses.
If you do not take into account the match between the two teams this season, then in the last four matches between them they have fallen 18 goals. Before the upcoming match Arsenal is in better shape, but Liverpool have home court advantage. Surely “Gunners” have not forgotten that 1: 5 during his visit to “Anfield” on February 8, 2014. I expect Liverpool to score the eighth consecutive home game, and guests to show good form especially by Mesut Özil and Olivier Giroud and also score.
