Liverpool Set Sights on Another Victory Over Arsenal in the EPL
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will be hoping his side can continue their free-flowing style of soccer that has produced ten goals in their opening four games in all competitions when they face Arsenal at Anfield on August 27 in the Premier League.
The Reds started their campaign with a 3-3 draw away to Watford on the opening game of the season. They then edged past Crystal Palace 1-0 thanks to a second-half Sadio Mane goal to pick up their first win in the league.
Klopp has no new injury concerns to worry about ahead of the test against the Gunners. Brazilian Philippe Coutinho is not expected to be a part of the squad, though, as he has yet to commit his future to the club following two rejected bids from Barcelona for the player’s services over the last couple of weeks.
Liverpool are the favorites in the soccer betting to keep up their 100% record at home this season. The Merseyside club did the double over Arsenal in the 2016/17 campaign as they beat them 3-1 at Anfield and 4-3 at the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal started their season with an impressive 4-3 victory over Leicester in their opening fixture, however, they were not able to follow that success up away to Stoke the following weekend as they went down 1-0 to Mark Hughes’ men.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger will be hoping new record summer signing Alexandra Lacazette can find the back of the net again after his first goal for the club in the opening two minutes of the victory over the Foxes. The former Lyon striker scored 26 league goals last season in Ligue One but had a frustrating 90 minutes against the Potters.
Following the latest round of the EPL fixtures, the clubs will have a short break as international football returns with the domestic action set to resume on September 9.
