In the English Premier League, Liverpool are set to host Arsenal at Anfield. Both Liverpool and Arsenal have had perfect starts to the season so this match is expected to be very well contested.
Arsenal were very impressive in their previous match as they defeated Burnley 2-1 at home. It was a dominant display by the Gunners as they controlled 68% of the possession and had 9 shots on target. Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were the two players who scored for Arsenal. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been especially impressive this season as the striker has scored in both games for the Gunners. Arsenal look very exciting when attacking and they will be confident in their ability to challenge to Liverpool defense.
Liverpool, on the other side of the coin, defeated Southampton 2-1 in their previous match. Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino both played very well to score goals. During the win, Liverpool controlled 64% of the possession and completed 530 passes at an accuracy of close to 80%. In the two games that Liverpool have played, the team has looked very comfortable and are currently top of the Premier League ladder. Liverpool have been outstanding this season but this match is expected to be a big challenge since Arsenal have a very strong attacking unit.
Liverpool and Arsenal played each other twice last season with the most recent match ending in a 5-1 win to the Reds. Roberto Firmino was outstanding in that match as the Brazilan striker scored 3 goals. Sadio Mane and Mo Salah both scored goals also. Ainsley Maitland-Niles was the goal scorer for Arsenal.
Arsenal have had an outstanding start to the season and they will be confident in their ability to challenge Liverpool at Anfield. That being said, I am picking the Reds to win this match. Liverpool have been outstanding all season and I see them having an advantage in defense. Liverpool have a considerably stronger defense and I see them conceding fewer goals than Arsenal. This should be a high scoring game that Liverpool win.
