Watch Liverpool vs Arsenal live streaming as the Reds will hope to make amends when they host the Gunners on March 4, 2017.
The 2016/17 season has so far been hugely inconsistent, but at the same a rather thrilling one as the unpredictable Liverpool have been all over the place from putting incredible, high-level performances to underperforming dramatically. On the positive note, Red boast a fine record against top sides at Anfield this season as they thus far recorded wins over Tottenham, Manchester City and draws against Chelsea and Manchester United. What is more, Liverpool’s season kicked off with a thrilling 4-3 victory at Arsenal and Jurgen Klopp’s men will be extremely keen to inflict another blow to Arsenal’s top four credentials on Saturday afternoon.
It will be easier said than done as Liverpool are coming from a disappointing defeat at Leicester City, the one which comes as a huge wake-up call after a mid-season breakaway to Spain. Liverpool’s schedule left them plenty of time to prepare in peace and quiet, but it will have influenced their form and the Reds need to turn on the competitive mode as soon as possible. Jurgen Klopp and his selection decisions have been under the microscope of late and the forthcoming clash will be a huge test for the German tactician as well.
It is the same old story and the same old scenario for Arsenal and their fans, who are fearing for their top four place having previously lost any hope of winning the title for another season. Gunners’ spectacular collapse saw them suffer back-to-back defeats at Everton and Manchester City back in December, before being struck by consecutive blows against Watford and Chelsea at the beginning of February. To make things worse, the North London club have been given a heavy thrashing by Bayern Munich in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League last-16 tie in Munich and that 5-1 slump will still be resonating in their heads.
Arsene Wenger’s men are suffering a severe dip in form, seemingly every single one of them except the Chile superstar Alexis Sanchez, whose sizzling form is once again making headlines as Gunners fear over the future of their key man. Reports claim that Sanchez has already made up his mind on summer departure, which could cause an avalanche at the end of the season. Arsene Wenger’s place at the helm is also under doubt and Gunners could use a big morale boost in these times of uncertainty.
