Preview – Premier League Football: Liverpool v Arsenal

Liverpool v Arsenal

This could be a tale of two woeful defences or a story of two notable absentees. Both Liverpool and Arsenal have shown how porous they can be at the back with a steady stream of sloppy goals conceded.

However, going forward each can be an exhilarating force – the Gunners with their possession-based game and Liverpool with the ‘gegenpress’. Jurgen Klopp refers to his team’s style as heavy metal football and each of the past few seasons, Arsenal have been blown away. With new signing Mohammed Salah complementing the speed of Sadio Mane and the elusiveness of Roberto Firmino, this could be a tricky afternoon for the north Londoners’ rear guard.  

Forget Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor this is the weekend’s main event! Sulking wantaways Alexis Sanchez and Philippe Coutinho can watch from stands – if they care to show up.

Premier League Football: Liverpool v Arsenal – Sunday at 3.30pm on Sky Sports Premier League.
