Liverpool Look to Pile Pressure on Manchester City at the Top
Manchester City ran away with the Premier League title last season, ultimately finishing 12 points clear at the top. Manchester United were their closest challengers, with Liverpool only managing a third-place finish after a difficult season in which they suffered numerous injuries to key players.
A few weeks ago, it looked as if City were on course to win another championship crown without too much difficulty, but Liverpool’s fine form has allowed them to keep pace with Pep Guardiola’s side.
At the time of writing, the Reds are just three points short of the summit of the standings. Manchester City have the chance to move six clear by beating Crystal Palace on Monday. That is not a given – Palace won the reverse fixture at the Etihad Stadium in October – but Liverpool will be expecting City to emerge triumphant in south London. Regardless, the gap will be cut to three points again if Jurgen Klopp’s men win in the capital two days later.
Liverpool arrived at the Emirates Stadium in fantastic form. A 2-0 success against Brighton & Hove Albion means the Reds have now won eight games on the bounce in the Premier League. They have scored 21 goals in that time and conceded only two.
Luis Diaz, a January signing from Porto, has hit the ground running and added even more firepower to the Liverpool attack. Klopp’s side are averaging 2.6 goals per game this term, while they have failed to score in only one of their 28 matches to date.
Arsenal Find Consistency at Right Time To Boost Top-four Hopes
Manchester City are still the favorites to win the title – and that is understandable. But Liverpool deserve great credit for their staying power, and a trip to the Etihad next month potentially gives them a chance to overhaul Guardiola’s charges. First, though, Liverpool face a tricky test against an in-form Arsenal side.
It is easy to forget now, but Arsenal were bottom of the Premier League after three games this season. Relegation to the Championship was never a realistic possibility, and the early fixture list did Mikel Arteta’s men no favors – Chelsea and Manchester City were two of their first three opponents. Even so, it was hard to envisage back then that Arsenal would now be the favorites to win the race for fourth place.
A 2-0 victory over Leicester City on Sunday moved the Gunners back into the top four. They may lead Manchester United by just one point, but it is significant that Arsenal have played three fewer matches than the Red Devils.
It would be a disappointment if Arteta’s side did not go on and qualify for the Champions League from here. That in itself is a sign of the progress Arsenal have made this season. Over the last 11 games, the Gunners have amassed even more points than Liverpool. They have won five games on the bounce, demonstrating the sort of consistency that had eluded them for much of Arteta’s tenure up to now. Fourth spot is theirs to lose.
Liverpool Will Be In for a Tough Game Away to Arsenal
It is only two months since Liverpool won 2-0 away at Arsenal in the League Cup, but Arteta’s side have made strides forward since then. Martin Odegaard is one of the best players in the Premier League on current form. Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli can take advantage of Liverpool’s full-backs’ tendency to bomb forward. The defence is less error prone than it once was.
Liverpool are undoubtedly the favorites to win this one. They have been playing at a high level for years now. Klopp has made his team into a winning machine and the Reds have the confidence and self-belief to take the game to any opponent.
Yet there is greater grit and resilience to this Arsenal side compared to even six months ago. The Gunners pushed Manchester City hard at the Emirates on New Year’s Day and were ultimately unfortunate to lose 2-1. Liverpool will not have everything their own way on Wednesday, and Arsenal’s slick, incisive counter-attacking will give Klopp plenty to think about.
A price of +102 on Arsenal or draw in the double chance market looks too tempting to pass up. The wager will be successful if the home team simply avoids defeat, something Arsenal have done in 12 of their last 13 league matches at the Emirates.
