Liverpool vs Arsenal Match Prediction: November 20, 2021
November 20, 2021 5:30 pm
As the head-to-head stats indicate, Liverpool have squared off against Arsenal on 31 previous occasions in the English Premier League. Not surprisingly, both teams have been dominant in their home fixtures. Liverpool have won 9 games in total, 6 at Anfield, while Arsenal have won 14 of these matchups, with 8 of them held at the Emirates Stadium.
However, given the recent defensive problems faced by Arsenal and the attacking flair possessed by Liverpool with players like Salah, Firmino, and Mane, this matchup promises a lot of goals.
Liverpool Vs Arsenal Match Prediction: Team News, Probable XI
While Thiago Alcantara, Curtis Jones, and Harvey Elliott are yet to return to the squad for selection, the inclusion of Diogo Jota and Trent Alexander-Arnold to the squad will provide Jurgen Klopp with more tactical options in terms of team selection.
Liverpool (Probable XI): Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mane, Salah, Jota.
Arsenal (Probable XI): Ramsdale, Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tavares, Partey, Lokonga, Saka, Smith Rowe, Aubameyang, Lacazette.
Key Players and Matchups
One of the most in-form strikers in the world at the moment, Mohammed Salah is someone the defence of Arsenal will have to cope with if they stand any chance of winning this matchup. Such has been his proficiency in front of goal that in the 2021/22 English Premier League season, Salah has already scored 10 goals in the 11 matches that he’s been a part of and has made 21 shots on target.
Given the ruthless form that Mohammad Salah, Firmino, and Jota are in, it will not be a surprise if Liverpool break through the defence of Arsenal and walk away with the 3 points.
