Alexandre Lacazette has failed to score in his past 3 Premier League matches but has 8 goals for the season so far.


The reds have been banging in the goals of late and currently find themselves in 4th place in the table – one point above Friday’s opponents. Their away form in recent weeks has been sensational –they have scored 16 goals in their last 4 away games, blowing away West Ham, Stoke, Brighton & Bournemouth. Mohamed Salah has notched an incredible 20 goals (in all competitions) for the reds this term and looks set to clinch the golden boot in English football this season.

Head to Head

Liverpool just edge the lengthy head to head battle between the teams with 86 wins in comparison to Arsenal’s 78 with another 59 games ending as draws. Liverpool thumped Arsenal 4-0 at Anfield earlier in the season – a result which Arsene Wenger’s men are sure to be seeking revenge for.
