Wednesday, July 15, will be the Central match of the 36th round of Premier League where Arsenal take Liverpool. Both teams lost points in the previous games, so I will try to be rehabilitated in the nearest meeting.
In late June it seemed that the “Arsenal” embarked on the winning path. “Arsenal” beat “Southampton”, “Norwich” and “Wolverhampton”. The team of Mikel Arteta in these matches scored 8 goals and conceded none. But then the London club played a draw with “Lester” and lost to Tottenham in the North London Derby. This defeat distanced Arsenal from a zone of Euro cups. Now Arsenal is in the 9th place in the standings of the Premier League. The distance to the top 6 is 5 points.
In the match against “Liverpool” “Arsenal” will not help disqualified Edward Nketia. At issue is Mesut Ozil, who has back problems. Bernd Leno, Pablo, Marie, Calum chambers and Gabriel Martinelli also will not play against Liverpool. It is likely that all of them will miss the remainder of the current campaign. Arsenal suffered from injuries after the restart of the season.
“Liverpool” ahead of schedule became the champion of England. The main task for the season “red” was performed. Crushing defeat by Manchester city shook the Merseysiders. After that they beat “Aston Villa” and “Brighton”. However, in the previous match, the team of jürgen Klopp unexpectedly lost points, having drawn with “Burnley”.
Until the end of the season Liverpool would do without Joel Matip. With high probability the rest of the 2019/20 campaign, will miss the team’s captain and Jordan Henderson. The Englishman knee injury. Under question for the match against Arsenal James Milner, who missed the match against “Burnley”. Klopp still not sure if I can count on the player on Wednesday.
Statistics on the side of “Liverpool”. Liverpool have won 88 times, Arsenal. The “gunners” on 10 wins less. 62 more match between these teams ended in a draw. Arsenal haven’t won by Liverpool in the Premier League. The last time this happened back in October 2015. In the match of the 1st round of the season the “Reds” beat the house “the Arsenal” with the score 3:1.
The bookies give preference to Liverpool. The odds on the home win – 3,95; on Victoria guests – 1,89; for a draw – 3,95. Bookmakers consider that the match will be scored more than three goals (cal. Of 1.91). This option should be considered, because in the last 10 matches of the team only twice scored less than three goals to two. With regard to the coming confrontation in Liverpool more chances to win. In addition, all three major forwards in “red” often clog “the Arsenal”.
Arsenal: Martinez; Sokratis, Louis Holding; Bellerin, Ceballos, Xhaka, Tierney; Saka, Lacazette, Aubameyang.
Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander Arnold, Gomez, van Dyck, Robertson; Keith, Fabinho, Alex oxlade-Chamberlain; Salah, Roberto Firmino, Manet.
