As the season wears on, Arsenal look to be building more and more momentum, though in truth we’ve seen that so many times in the last few seasons but with nothing to show for it.
They remain in the Europa League quarter-finals, and that competition seems to be their only shot at Champions League football next season.
Despite a seeming upturn in form, they’re still just a balanced W3-D3-L3 in the league and sit down in 9th, though wins over Leicester and Spurs should give them confidence here against a Liverpool side that aren’t the powerhouse that they were last season.
Despite a massive drop in form, and consequently a drop down the table, much of Liverpool’s woe has come at Anfield where they’ve now lost six of eight winless matches in the league dating back to December.
On the road it’s been a slightly different story as they’ve won four of their last five, though a win over lowly Sheffield United shouldn’t be enough to write home about, while they rode their luck massively against Wolves and could consider themselves fortunate to have come away with all three points from Molineux.
Diogo Jota’s goal was enough to take the spoils against his former club, and the Portuguese’s return is a timely one for the Reds, as he seems to have hit the ground running with two goals over the international break too.
Brazilian Fabinho’s return to midfield should offer them more stability in the middle of the park as his talents are somewhat wasted in defence, though with just four wins from their last 13 domestic matches, it’s difficult to make a case for the win here.
Arsenal And Liverpool To Draw
Mikel Arteta has certainly improved this Arsenal side, and that shows with their record against the traditional ‘Big Six’.
While they still have a poor record on the road against such teams, the Gunners have gone W4-D1-L1 at the Emirates since that 2-1 defeat to Chelsea back in December 2019, with that sole defeat coming as a narrow 1-0 against this season’s champions elect Man City, so we’d be surprised if that were to get turned over.
In fact, while this is statistically the highest-scoring head-to-head in Premier League history, they’re rarely walkovers especially at this venue.
None of the last five meetings here have been separated by more than a single strike, with both sides going W1-D3-L1 in that time.
There’s certainly little to separate the sides at the moment, especially with the uncertainty coming straight back from the international break and the draw looks to be the best value here for a small flutter.
