This is going to be the biggest match of the weekend, and how could it not, when Liverpool will play host to Arsenal on Saturday. Liverpool have been in really dominant form lately and are coming off seven consecutive wins. They would like to at least keep their undefeated streak intact, and Arsenal have not been in the best of shapes lately.
Liverpool (16-0-3) completely destroyed Newcastle on Wednesday in their home match, as they left no room for doubt. They took the lead at the 11th minute but had to score three goals in the second half in order to get such an easy win. That was their seventh in a row in all competitions and the fifth clean sheet in that span, which is pretty impressive. Liverpool are still sitting at the top of the league table with 51 points, now six ahead of Tottenham. They are the only undefeated team at home (8-0-1), where they have scored 22 goals and have conceded just two in the process.
Arsenal (11-3-5) are coming off a really poor performance on the road against Brighton, and should be feeling lucky they escaped with a point. They took an early lead with Aubameyang but their opponents pulled even at the 35th minute and even pushed for a winner at the second half but Arsenal held out. They have not been very solid lately, winning just once in their last four matches in all competitions. The Gunners are now sitting at the 5th spot of the league table with 38 points, six ahead of Manchester United and two behind Chelsea.
