*Odds correct as of 13:45 on February 3
We’ve still got a long way to go in the Premier League title race, but that doesn’t mean things can’t be influenced at this stage. Arsenal go into this game knowing defeat to league leaders Liverpool could all but end their title challenge. The Gunners are third, five points behind Liverpool, having recently ended a three-game winless streak. That streak started with a draw to Liverpool at Anfield and was followed up by defeats to Fulham and West Ham. During that run, Arsenal were also knocked out of the FA Cup by Liverpool. But the losing run was brought to an end over the winter break as Arsenal thrashed Crystal Palace 5-0, before seeing off Nottingham Forest 2-1 last time out.
Liverpool, on the other hand, will be hoping for a big win over a title rival to further add to their momentum. Jurgen Klopp’s side have lost just once in the league this season, and that was a controversial defeat to Tottenham Hotspur in which they had a goal incorrectly ruled out. Since then, Liverpool have gone unbeaten in 15 league games with 10 wins — four in a row going into this game following the 1-1 draw with Arsenal. They have also advanced to the fifth round of the FA Cup and EFL Cup final, as well as the last 16 of the Europa League. It’s shaping up to be a thrilling end to the season — and Klopp’s tenure — for Liverpool.
