Liverpool Versus Arsenal, What The Managers Are Saying

Liverpool comes face-to-face with an Arsenal side who has won seven of their last eight games in all competitions this football calendar.

Liverpool looks the luckier of the two sides with the return from injury of Mamadou Sakho, Kolo Toure, Jordan Henderson, Jordon Ibe and James Milner who could all be back.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, knowing the task ahead, rested Mesut Ozil and Per Mertesacker against Sunderland and could recall them back especially when Alexis Sanchez is not yet fit enough to return, while Santi Cazorla, Francis Coquelin, Danny Welbeck and Jack Wilshere, all remain out.

Arsenal have only lost two of their last 17 Premier League matches against Liverpool (W6, D9, L2).

In the last nine league meetings at Anfield, there have been 35 goals scored.

Liverpool, on the other hand, has won only five of the 12 league matches under Jurgen Klopp (W5, D3, L4) and scored just 14 goals in those matches, including two in their last four.

They have scored 22 goals in their 20 league games so far this season, their lowest tally at this stage of a league campaign.
