Arsenal vs Liverpool match preview 2019 take on the Gunners: It’s been a decent start for the Gunners, and three points against Liverpool would confirm their credentials as one of the legitimate title contenders this season. They were made to work for a second time after grinding out a 2-1 win against a decent Burnley side, and Liverpool are only going to offer a sterner test.
Loanee Dani Ceballos set up goals for v and then for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, but they’ll need a better defensive display if they want any chance of getting the win.
Arsenal vs Liverpool match preview 2019 take on the Reds: Liverpool are impressive when their high-press works, while they’re just as effective if they sit back on the counter.
In terms of potential weaknesses, backup goalkeeper Adrian made a mistake in their recent 2-1 win over Southampton, passing the ball to Saints forward Danny Ings while under extreme pressure.
As always, Jurgen Klopp was quick to defend his player, pointing out that he was already playing with an injury following a collision with a pitch invader who was trying to celebrate with the team.
The Reds also picked up the European Super Cup last Wednesday after going to extra-time, which could have an impact on their overall fitness levels during the closing stages of the game.
The UCL winners are obvious favorites given recent history between the two sides, but Arsenal’s attack is statistically likely to nab a goal or two. The latter has also improved with a couple of good acquisitions in the recent transfer window, so it’s time to see whether they’ve made up any real ground on the Reds. Whatever the case, it’s unlikely to stay at 0-0 for long.
