Arsenal are preparing to host Liverpool in the Premier League on Wednesday, July 15.

Ahead of the game, BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson has made his prediction.

“Liverpool had a bit of a hiccup against Burnley on Saturday, which wasn’t a massive surprise. I know they can still pass 100 points and beat Manchester City’s record, but I don’t think the thought of doing that will be driving their players on,” said Lawrenson.

“Reds boss Jurgen Klopp changed his side a bit against the Clarets, which was good for the youngsters in his squad, but I don’t think we will see Liverpool at their very best here either.

“Against Tottenham, Arsenal did what Arsenal normally do – just when you think they might have turned a corner, they get beaten. They had some moments to forget at the back.

“They will think they got mugged a little but they were just naive defensively and, until they change their personnel, that is the way it is going to be with them all the time.

“I am expecting an open game, though, and I’m going with another draw for Liverpool.”

Mark Lawrenson’s score prediction: 1-1
