Liverpool need a response after losing to Leicester on Monday. Defeat here could see them drop down to sixth if Manchester United beat Bournemouth earlier in the day and that would be a disaster for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Arsenal have not played in two weeks and will be well rested here, although that could also go against them here. Arsene Wenger needs a win here to relieve some of the pressure from the Arsenal fans.
The last two matches between the sides at Anfield have ended in a draw and another stalemate could be on the cards here, although that result would only suit United. NaijaBet
