Arsenal vs Liverpool – Preview, prediction and three key players for Reds



Liverpool take their unbeaten Premier League record to the Emirates on Saturday, in what should be an incredible game of football.

Arsenal facing the Reds is always as both sides play some great football. Although the Gunners are under new management, Unai Emery has enjoyed a great start to his career in London.

The London club won 11 games in a row before their 2-2 draw against Palace, and we will have to be wary of the threat from their attackers.

Mesut Ozil has been in fine form this season, but Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could be deadly for the Gunners.

The Reds don’t have major injury concerns but Arsenal have a number of defensive problems. Nacho Monreal, Sead Kolasinac and Laurent Koscielny are major doubts for the game, while Matteo Guendouzi will miss the game via suspension.

Liverpool predicted line-up (4-2-3-1)

Alisson, Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk, Dejan Lovren, Andy Robertson, Fabinho, Georginio Wijnaldum, Xherdan Shaqiri, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah

Last season’s results

Last season was a goal fest between the two sides. We beat the Gunners 4-0 at home, while the away game was a brilliant 3-3 draw.

Liverpool taking on Arsenal has always seen goals and this game should be no different.

Key players

Sadio Mane

All the attention will be on Mo Salah as the Egyptian could lead the line in attack. The onus on breaking through the Arsenal defence could fall on the shoulders of Mane.

The Senegal star has the pace to run past any defence in the Premier League and he has the physicality to bully past defenders too.

We saw both these sides of his play against Cardiff City last weekend when Mane scored a brace, and he could be on target against the Gunners on Saturday too.

Virgil van Dijk

The centre-back has been incredible since signing for us in January and will have a huge role to play if we are to get a positive result from the Emirates.

Van Dijk has to marshal the back-four well, which will be tested, against a quality Arsenal side. The former Saint will also be a threat when we have set-pieces, and we would not be surprised if the Dutchman is a menace in the opposition box too.


The Brazilian will have to be at his best to keep the Arsenal attack out. Alisson has only conceded four goals in the Premier League this season, but goals are aplenty in this fixture.

The former AS Roma man hasn’t been tested much this season but that could change come Saturday. Alisson has to command the box well, should Arsenal pepper us with crosses and set-piece deliveries.


Liverpool didn’t play in midweek but Arsenal came out 2-1 winners over Blackpool in the Carabao Cup. The Reds are at full-strength while the Gunners have their injury concerns.

The away side should start as favourites for the tie and if we start well on Saturday, we should come out with all three points from the Emirates.

“It’s the wrong club for him” – ESPN pundit urges American star to snub Chelsea and join Liverpool



Christian Pulisic

Former Arsenal star and ESPN pundit Paul Mariner has told Christian Pulisic to snub Chelsea and join Liverpool.

The American sensation has been linked (h/t Guardian ) with a move to the Premier League with Chelsea and Liverpool interested in the winger.

Pulisic has found starts hard to come at the Bundesliga leaders and Mariner was quoted by the Express saying:

“No, don’t do it.

“It’s the wrong club for him.

“He’s just going to go into a hopper of decent footballers who eventually go out on loan.

“Is he going to get in the team on this present form? No he’s not.

The former Gunner added that Pulisic is still developing as a player and Liverpool would be great for him, especially because we have Jurgen Klopp

“If you were to ask me for a club he should go to – Liverpool.

“Klopp understands the Bundesliga, he understands what it takes to mould a player. He knows him very, very well.

“If Pulisic were to go to Liverpool, the nurturing and the way that Klopp puts his arm around players, I think it would be a fabulous move for him.”

The 20-year-old would be an incredible signing for the Reds and would add more firepower to our star-studded attack.

Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino haven’t been firing on all cylinders this season but the addition of Pulisic could change that.

The American would not come on the cheap but given he has a ton of potential and is only 20, Klopp should take a punt on the Dortmund youngster.

(Video) Liverpool star breaks down after seeing his side win 1-0 over Equatorial Guinea



Sadio Mane liverpool

Liverpool star Sadio Mane broke down in tears after Senegal’s 1-0 win over Equatorial Guinea on Saturday.

The attacker had to be helped off the pitch by his teammates despite the team winning the game. The Metro reports that Mane had the chance to double Senegal’s lead in the game but missed his chance.

Many supporters turned on the 26-year-old and booed him for the miss. When the match ended, Mane fell to the ground, tearing up.

His teammates tried to help him up but the Liverpool star fell once again before he was taken off the pitch.

Mane has struggled to perform for Liverpool this season, and it seems his form deserted him for the national side too.

Although Senegal won the game, the reaction from Mane was a little surprising. This reaction reminds us of that 3-3 draw against Crystal Palace with Luis Suarez breaking down after the match ended.

The Senegal forward is one of our most important players and we need to have him in the right frame of mind for the rest of the season.

The 26-year-old has seven goals for us this season, which isn’t a bad return, but we haven’t seen the best of our attackers yet.

Our next game is a tough tie against Watford at Vicarage Road, and the Senegalese attacker has to be at his best if we are to pick up the three points.

Liverpool keeping an eye on 18-year-old Brazilian sensation



Bruno Roberto

Liverpool are one of the clubs keeping an eye on Brazilian sensation Bruno Roberto, according to the Daily Mail.

The 18-year-old recently played for the senior Atletico Mineiro side and is expected to follow the “lead” by Gabriel Jesus, as per the report.

Roberto plays as an attacking midfielder and has also interested the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, Tottenham and Chelsea, as per the report.

The 18-year-old could be another great Brazilian coming through the ranks and it will be interesting to see if we follow up with our interest.

Jurgen Klopp of Liverpool

Liverpool have a few Brazilian internationals in their side with Alisson and Fabinho joining in the summer. Roberto Firmino has enjoyed a fantastic spell under Jurgen Klopp and seems to be getting better with each season under his belt.

The Reds have to be wary regarding South American youngsters as we have another Brazilian on the books, Allan, that has had trouble getting work permits in Britain.

The 21-year-old is currently on loan at Eintracht Frankfurt but hasn’t played a single competitive game for the Reds since joining in 2015.

Roberto could be a star in the making and if he wants to develop into the finished article, there is no better place than Liverpool.
