ARSENAL VS LIVERPOOL
| Saturday, November 3rd |
Premier League | Anfield
5:30PM GMT/1:30PM EST
After a few weeks of less intense fixtures, Liverpool head to the Emirates to test their unbeaten record against their top six co-inhabitants, Arsenal. Unai Emery’s side has kicked off really well this season, with nary a new manager lull. However, some of the old Arsenal problems remain, and he’s facing a bit of a mini-injury crisis in defense. Hector Bellerin, Sead Kolasinac, Nacho Monreal, and Sokratis Papastathopoulos are all doubts ahead of this match, while Laurent Koscielny and Mohamed Elneny are unavailable and Matteo Guendouzi is suspended. Liverpool’s attackers will do their best to take advantage of the Gunners’ thin defense.
On the other end of the pitch, Liverpool’s stellar defense have a much harder job, as they will be called on to keep the goal safe from the likes of Ozil, Aubamayeng, and Lacazette. Klopp is still without Jordan Henderson and Naby Keïta in his midfield, but has several good options available to him to fill their boots.
