These are the matches where titles are won. Sounds like the football theme every year, but Arsenal play half of the Premier League on their visit to Anfield. The confrontation with Liverpool of the leader of the English championship can be a giant step in the search for the reconquest of the championship so long after. They haven’t won since the 2003/04 season.
Mikel Arteta’s team arrives in a state of full form. Apart from the elimination in the Europa League, the ‘gunners’ have seven consecutive victories in the Premier League that served to open a more or less comfortable advantage with City. Although the ‘blue sky’ will add one game less than Arsenal at the end of the day.
Quite the opposite of its rival, Liverpool. Klopp’s team is still lost in eighth place in the standings, 13 points behind the Champions League zone. Yes, it’s not a bug. 13 units less than Newcastle and Manchester United they did their homework. A totally unusual situation for the finalist of the last edition of the Champions League and who, barring a miracle, will not play next year.

To start realizing this utopia, Liverpool must break the sequence of four straight games without winning, three in the Premier League. Defeats against Bournemouth, City and Real Madrid and draw against Chelsea in the last round of the championship. Terrible numbers for a ‘red’ team that was destined to fight for the Premier League. With the roles reversed, Arsenal have the best example to follow in their first-phase match. They won 3-2 at the Emirates. It’s their turn to visit the imposing Anfield.
