Match preview

Arsenal passed a significant early test of their league titles last weekend with a 3-1 victory over Tottenham in the North London derby and the Gunners can give their supporters further encouragement by beating Liverpool at the Emirates.

Before the start of the season, it was Liverpool who were widely expected to be Manchester City’s main rival in the title race. But as Jurgen Klopp’s side struggled, recording two wins from seven league games, Arsenal emerged as City’s biggest potential threat.

There’s still a long way to go and it’s worth noting that Arsenal’s only defeat this season – a 3-1 loss at Manchester United – came in their only away game against a side that finished in the first half of the season last season.

However, the Gunners’ home results have been solid for a long time with 11 wins recorded in their last 13 games at the Emirates.

Confidence in Arsenal’s ranks is expected to be at an all-time high and arguably boss Mikel Arteta’s biggest challenge will be to sufficiently temper his side’s attacking intent and reduce the risk of getting caught on the counter.

There were a few warning signs in the first half of last weekend’s derby success that could easily have turned out differently had Tottenham shown more composure with their latest assist.

Overall, however, it was a commanding performance from the Gunners and there was so much to like about them in the attacking third with Martin Odegaard pulling the strings, Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka providing quality width and Gabriel Jesus looking razor sharp. the middle.

Liverpool hope to be harder to break than Spurs, but the Reds were wide open at times in last Saturday’s 3-3 draw at home to Brighton and have conceded two or more goals in four of their last nine games.

They kept a rare clean sheet in a 2-0 win over Rangers in the Champions League on Tuesday, but it would be folly to think their defensive issues miraculously disappeared with a shutout.

Liverpool’s progress to the Champions League knockout stage looks likely, which is just as well because their bid for the Premier League title has yet to begin.

If they are to challenge for league honours, they will have to do something as soon as Sunday’s visit to the capital precedes next Saturday’s highly anticipated home clash with champions Manchester City.

Securing an unlikely double from those two matches could well change the landscape and restore Liverpool’s name to the title conversation.

However, Klopp’s Reds haven’t played with the intensity or swagger that has been their hallmark in recent years and they could be the latest victims of Arsenal’s superb start.
