Liverpool will host Arsenal in the Premier League on Saturday, November 21, following the international break. Before heading to the international break, the Reds suffered a 3-2 defeat to West Ham, meanwhile, Gunners celebrated a 1-0 victory over Watford.
Currently, Jurgen Klopp’s side are 4th in the league table with 22 points, while, Mikel Arteta’s side are 5th with 20 points.
Ahead of the game, Paul Merson has stated his prediction on SportsKeeda.
“This is most definitely the game of the Premier League weekend and a big one for both teams. Liverpool are trying to win the league and have to bounce back from their defeat against West Ham.
“Arsenal, on the other hand, are flying a little bit and are on a run, but they won’t want to be billed as flat-track bullies. They need to get a result here against one of the best teams in the country and even if they don’t, there are ways to lose a football match.
“I’ve said since the start of the season that if Arsenal keep their starting XI fit, they can get top four. Judging by the aspirations of the two clubs, a draw would be good for Arsenal, while Liverpool will be unhappy with it as they are trying to win the Premier League. However, I predict the two sides to share the spoils at Anfield.”
Paul Merson’s Prediction: Liverpool 1-1 Arsenal
