Liverpool and Arsenal meet at Anfield on Sunday to cap the third week of the 2017/18 Premier League season. Both sides need the points after making inconsistent starts to their respective campaigns, although the Gunners are arguably under more pressure.
Liverpool will face Arsenal Sunday in the first big matchup this season for either side. Both teams have dropped points against clubs they should have beaten in the first two weeks. Liverpool drew with Watford on opening day, and Arsenal lost to Stoke just last week. This is a vital litmus test for both Jurgen Klopp and Arsene Wenger. Both men expect to compete for a Premier League title, and at the very least a top four finish.
Liverpool have been typical Liverpool thus far in their campaign, offensively electric and defensively inconsistent. In stopping Arsenal they’ll need to do a much better job at controlling the deep midfield. Jordan Henderson is a brilliant central midfielder, but his ability to command a defense isn’t his greatest strength.
Arsenal lost 1-0 away to Stoke City last time out in the league, while Liverpool beat Crystal Palace at home by the same scoreline. More importantly, the Reds also secured their place in this season’s UEFA Champions League group stage after wrapping up a 6-3 aggregate win over Hoffenheim on Wednesday.
Liverpool are in Europe’s premier club competition at the expense of Arsenal, who missed out after finishing fifth and a single point behind the Reds last season. However, the Gunners will be able to welcome star forward Alexis Sanchez back from injury.
