It feels like the first Premier League encounter between Arsenal and Liverpool this season was a lifetime ago. Just in case you’ve forgotten, it was the first weekend of the season, Joe Cole and Laurent Koscielny were both sent off at Anfield and a late Pepe Reina mistake cost Liverpool all three points. Well, the teams are set to meet again at The Emirates Stadium on Sunday, and the Reds are the team on the rise.
Arsenal’s season is falling apart before their own eyes, while Liverpool are making a late surge for European qualification. Andy Carroll has said that he’ll add to his Liverpool goal tally against Arsenal, having already scored at The Emirates while wearing a Newcastle shirt earlier in the season. Talking about football shirts, as we near the end of the season, Premier League clubs start to reveal their strips for next year and here are two away strips to feast your eyes on…
The new Liverpool away shirt (on the left) was launched earlier this week and if you ask me looks like a real classy strip. The black and silver looks uber cool, and some Reds fans on Live4Liverpool.com have already been saying it’s the best Liverpool away shirt they’ve seen in years. In contrast, thanks to ArsenalInsider.com we have access to a sneak preview of Arsenal’s away shirt for next season (on the right). How would you describe the 125th Arsenal Anniversary Away shirt? Modern? Unique? Or just plain stupid?
Whatever the result this weekend, off the pitch it looks like Liverpool are streets ahead of Arsenal with their new away strip. Arsenal and Liverpool fans – what do you think of your new away kits?
