Liverpool vs Arsenal: Can Klopp Stop Arsenal?
Arsene Wenger takes his side to Merseyside in the wake of their 3-1 hammering of Sunderland in the Football Association Cup third round. Either team have featured in closely contested skirmishes — such as their recent stalemate at Ashburton Grove — against each other, but the Anfield clash appears to be rather one-sided, with the Gunners expected to run away victors.
- Guess who picked up form against the Rokerites.
Thanks to the non-availability of an understudy, Hector Bellerin has been patrolling the right flank more often than he should have and as a result, the youngster seemed to have burned out at some point. However, he bounced back against a helpless Sam Allardyce team notching up two assists in the process.
As long as the Scousers manage to shut down Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey, Arsenal will struggle to be the threatening force that they could otherwise be and that is when pacey full backs and wingers come in handy. Theo Walcott and the Spanish right-back will pocket all three points should Liverpool manage to pocket their more creative teammates.
