Arsenal have been nothing short of fantastic in the Premier League this season, leading the way after eight matches, with seven victories. Manchester United are the only side to beat the Gunners so far this season but Mikel Arteta’s side rebounded from that with consecutive victories either side of the international break.
Last time out it was a 3-1 win over rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the North London Derby which Arsenal largely dominated and did well to recover after Harry Kane had cancelled out Thomas Partey’s opener. In the past, Arsenal sides may have let their heads drop but Gabriel Jesus and Granit Xhaka helped secure the points, showing the progress the Gunners have made under Arteta.
But now there’s another big test for Arsenal against a Liverpool side desperate to close the gap. Although Jurgen Klopp’s side are only four points off the top four their current standing of ninth in the table shows how their season has started. The Reds have managed just two wins so far this season, coming against Bournemouth and Newcastle, with four draws and one defeat.
Liverpool go into this game off the back of two league draws, held by Everton and then Brighton, the latter a 3-3 thriller in which the Reds were often outplayed by their visitors at Anfield. Klopp’s side did bounce back in the Champions League in midweek though, beating Rangers 2-0, and they’ll be hoping to carry that momentum to the Emirates.

Arsenal vs Liverpool match stats
Liverpool have may only lost once in the league this season but they often give themselves a mountain to climb in their matches, with the 3-3 draw against Brighton last weekend being a prime example. The Reds have now conceded the first goal in nine of their last 11 Premier League games and five of seven this season.
Darwin Nunez’s slow start to life at Liverpool has been less impactful thanks to the form of Roberto Firmino. The Brazilian has five goals in six Premier League games so far this season, and also loves to face Arsenal, netting nine times against the Gunners in the league.
