Expert Analysis and Prediction
Liverpool and Arsenal played each other twice last season with the two playing to a 1-1 draw on Nov. 3 and Liverpool following that up with an emphatic 5-1 spanking on Dec. 29.Roberto Firmino was outstanding in that match as the Brazilian striker scored three goals while Sadio Mane and superstar Mo Salah also added goals. Liverpool has won three of the last five meetings in this rivalry dating back to 2017 and…simply put, I believe the Reds’ ability to put goals on the board in a hurry is what will be the difference in this match, even though the Arsenal has an outstanding defense.
