Liverpool – Arsenal | 28/09/2020

The first of two meetings between Liverpool and Arsenal in the space of four days takes place in the Premier League on Monday night when the Gunners make the trip to Anfield. Both sides have won two from two in the league so far this term, meaning that at least one of their perfect records must go in the final match of gameweek three.

Unbeaten in the last 60 Premier League (PL) matches held at ‘fortress Anfield’ (W49, D11), the hosts will be brimming with confidence and the potential to richly entertain. Notably, Liverpool’s last eight PL home matches (W7, D1) have averaged 4.38 total goals, and five of the eight featured both teams scoring. Four of the matches featured at least two goals in both halves.

The ‘Reds’ are also unbeaten in seven straight PL H2Hs at Anfield (W5, D2), including four straight wins, and a whopping 25 goals scored across the seven (3.57 on average). Furthermore, across their last four PL home H2Hs vs Arsenal, Liverpool have conceded just once within first-half play.

Last season, Arsenal took just two away points from 18 against teams finishing in the top six (D2, L4). They conceded three penalty goals across those games (0.5 per match), with Arsenal defender David Luiz averaging 0.33 red cards per game within that group of six.

Despite the above, Mikel Arteta’s men have reason to feel confident after their own perfect PL start (W2 – GF 5, GA 1). The fact that they have emerged victorious in five straight matches entered as matchday underdogs (1 x penalty win), including two versus Liverpool, further underlines this. Those recent wins over the Merseysiders mean Arsenal have now been victorious in the last three H2Hs when Liverpool were the current champions.
