Liverpool are unbeaten in seven games (W3, D4) in all competitions against Arsenal. The Reds have scored two or more goals in each of these five matches, with 17 being the total number of goals scored. Furthermore, Liverpool have not lost to Arsenal in the last five games at Anfield. The hosts have been solid in recent games against the North London side.

All eyes will be on Anfield when Liverpool and Arsenal take on each other in the Premier League derby this weekend. The Reds aim to build on back-to-back wins over the likes of Norwich City and Southampton and the title-chasing team are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. Sadio Mane opened his goal-scoring account in the 2-1 win at Southampton, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay.

Correct Score Prediction: Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal

The Gunners won their last Premier League trophy back in 2004, with the capital club going through the season without a single loss. Arsenal used to play their homes at Highbury, but in 2006 they moved to the Emirates Stadium. The capacity of the stadium is 60,260. The likes of Thierry Henry, Denis Bergkamp and Robert Pires were part of the team back then, but Arsenal have not won the league trophy ever since.

They will have worries in goal, sure, but they have had a week to rest and will have nearly their full compliment available and ready to go. Liverpool have not played well yet this season, yet they have put up six points from six on offer and have scored six times already. They scored four times against Norwich, and could have had more, before winning in the Super Cup with a sub par performance. Their win over Southampton wasnt their best, as the first half showed, but they came into life in the second half.

Last months league fixture saw Alexandre Lacazette cancel out James Milners opener in an entertaining 1-1 draw at the Emirates. Since Arsenals last win, Liverpool have won three and drawn four of the seven matches played. Arsenal have not beaten Liverpool since a 4-1 win in April 2015. They have 78 wins in this fixture, while Liverpool have won 86 times and drawn a further 61 times. Last season, meanwhile, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Mo Salah and Danny Sturridge scored in a 4-0 Liverpool win the last time the two teams met at Anfield, before an extraordinary reverse fixture at the Emirates Philippe Coutinho and Salah put Liverpool 2-0 up, but Alexis Sanchez, Granit Xhaka and Mesut Ozil scored in the space of six minutes to put Arsenal ahead before Firminos equaliser meant a 3-3 draw.

Liverpools last league defeat at home was in April 2017. Unai Emery has the chance to show his tactical nous, considering how limited his options are, but he could be forgiven for wishing this match came in January when Arsenal have brought in reinforcements. Liverpool look strong favourites to beat an Arsenal side still reeling from injuries in defence. Jrgen Klopps aggressive style could produce a similar scoreline to the 4-0 win last season at Anfield.

Speaking of his international career, Salah made his Egypt debut on 3 September, 2011 in a 2-1 loss to Sierra Leone. It has to be noted that he was named Romas player of the season (2015/2016). After making 16 league appearances for the Viola in the Serie A, the left-footed winger signed a loan deal with Roma on 6 August, 2015. The Romans made the contract permanent on 3 August, 2016.

Our prediction for this Premier League match:

Premier League organizers seem to be determined to excite their fans right away from the initial stages of the competition. Interestingly, these two now possess the top two spots in the table and are also the only two in the tournament to boast of a 100% winning record so far which will change for sure once the weekend is done with. After some high profile games in the first two match-days, we are now afforded a match-up between the Reds and the Gunners.

The Gunners have won 12 FA Cup trophies, 13 league titles and two League Cups, but they have yet to lift the Champions League trophy. Arsenal are regarded as one of the best English teams. Arsene Wengers team were on the verge of beating Barcelona in the Champions League final back in 2006, but they eventually failed to win the prestigious title.

The pacey winger, who is capable of playing as a striker as well was producing outstanding displays for the RotBlau from 2012 to 2014 and, as a result, Chelsea chiefs decided to sign him on 26 January, 2015 for a fee of 11 million. Mohamed Salah, though, failed to impress in the Premier league and one year later he was sent on loan to Fiorentina.
