    Premier League LIVE! – Liverpool vs. Arsenal

    Probable Lineups

    Liverpool (4-3-3): Mignolet, Flanagan, Skrtel, K Touré, Cissokho, Coutinho, Gerrard, Henderson, Sterling, Suárez, Sturridge

    Although Liverpool only gained a point against West Brom last weekend, the Reds will be fully confident ahead of their home clash against the current league leaders with Luis Suárez, Daniel Sturridge, and Raheem Sterling leading their attack.  Ever since Suárez returned from suspension, Liverpool have yet to lose at home, scoring an astonishing 31 goals in their nine Anfield fixtures.

    Arsenal (4-2-3-1): Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs, Wilshere, Arteta, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Cazorla, Giroud

    Liverpool will be Arsenal’s first game in a chain of daunting fixtures this month, however the league leaders have already beaten the Merseysiders earlier this season which could give them the mental edge. Olivier Giroud will continue to lead the line, as the Gunners again failed to land a striker in the transfer market.

    What the fans are saying…
    Remember this?

    So there’s this new Russian on Arsenal’s roster… not sure if he can do much against Liverpool at Anfield back in the 2008-2009 season.

    Big game are usually decided by either pure genius,mistakes, or controversy.  Captain Steven Gerrard is capable of such magic, and if a dodgy penalty goes Liverpool’s way, the living midfield legend will be the man to step up.

    Stats to get your head around

    Liverpool vs. Arsenal: An Alternative Preview

    Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge have played 11 Barclays Premier League games together this season and the only team to stop them both scoring is Arsenal.

    Santi Cazorla has scored in two of his three Barclays Premier League appearances against Liverpool.

    Arsenal v Liverpool has seen five hat-tricks scored; the most trebles of any fixture in Premier League history.

    Liverpool have won just one of their last 13 Premier League games against Arsenal (W1 D7 L5) and none of the last six at Anfield (W0 D3 L3).

    Arsenal have trailed in five of the last six Premier League games against Liverpool at Anfield and come back to win two and draw three of those five where they fell behind.

    Arsenal have won six and lost none of their last seven Premier League games and netted exactly two goals in each of the last five.

    The Gunners were the last team to stop Liverpool from scoring in the Premier League (Nov 2nd 2013), with the Reds netting 41 goals in their 14 games since.

    There have been four 90th minute or later goals in the last five Premier League meetings between Liverpool and Arsenal at Anfield.

    Only Arsenal (6) have conceded fewer goals on home soil than Liverpool (8) this season in the Premier League.

    Wojciech Szczesny has kept more clean sheets than any other goalkeeper in the Premier League this season (11).

    If PL games ended at half-time, Liverpool would be top by one point. However, if PL games only included the second half, Liverpool would be 8th and 19 points off the top.
