Analysis of Liverpool vs Arsenal
Liverpool are playing very badly in recent times. It can be said that the 7-0 victory over MU on March 6 was an “accident” of Jurgen Klopp’s teachers and students. Because since that monumental victory, they have not known the smell of victory in the last 4 matches. Notably, in these 4 matches, The Kop only scored 1 goal.
A month after the rain of goals against MU, Liverpool lost to Bournemouth 0-1, lost to Real Madrid 0-1, lost to Man City 1-4 and most recently drew 0-0 at Chelsea. In fact, this is also a lucky draw of The Kop when the expected number of goals for The Blues is up to 2.1. Only thanks to Chelsea’s strikers taking advantage of the opportunity so poorly, Liverpool had 1 point to leave Stamford Bridge.
This is the period when the quality of The Kop’s gameplay is too bad. In defense, a series of pillars fell in form, from Van Dijk to Alexander-Arnold. This pair was no longer a reliable support in the Liverpool defense as at the peak. Remember, The Kop is built on the foundation of certainty in defence. So when their defense was loose, Liverpool’s performance was immediately affected.
And yet, The Kop’s midfield and attack ability are also much weaker. In attack, it can be said that Liverpool can only rely on Mohamed Salah right now.
Meanwhile, Arsenal is still showing great stability this season. After the loss to Man City, the Gunners immediately regained their balance. The proof is that the last 7 rounds in the Premier League, Arsenal won all 7 matches. The return of Gabriel Jesus is also very important because it will help Mikel Arteta have more options in attack.
In addition, the advantage of the Gunners in this match is also the physical side when they have a full week of rest, while Liverpool have to play against Chelsea in the middle of the week. Arsenal will crash Anfield tonight.
Latest Liverpool vs Arsenal force information
Liverpool will not have the services of midfielder Naby Keita. Van Dijk’s ability to play is still open due to the illness of the Dutch midfielder. Thiago has also returned to normal training and can play tonight. This will be an important comeback for Liverpool.
Arsenal will be without central defenders Saliba, Tomiyasu, Nketiah and Elneny due to injuries. In particular, the absence of Saliba is the most concerning when Gabriel and Holding are not a safety barrier.
