LIVERPOOL VS ARSENAL
| Saturday, December 29th |
Premier League | Anfield
5:30PM GMT/12:30PM EST
Liverpool look end an impressive 2018 with a final home win against fifth place Arsenal. The Reds look to hit 20 games unbeaten, but it’s unlikely that Unai Emery’s men will make it easy for them. James Milner remains out of contention for this match, along with Joe Gomez and Joël Matip. But other than that, Jürgen Klopp has a pretty healthy squad to choose from. This is in direct contrast to Emery, who is navigating a bit of an injury crisis with Arsenal.
