Arsenal vs Liverpool: Kick off time, prediction, TV, live stream, team news, h2h results
The confident Gunners are in fantastic form, sitting top of the league following a fine north London derby win over Tottenham last weekend, and their excellent Europa League campaign continued on Thursday with a straightforward defeat over Norwegian underdogs Bodo/Glimt.
Arsenal are expected to have slid to second place by the time they face Liverpool, with reigning champions Manchester City facing lowly Southampton on Saturday and Mikel Arteta’s high-flying team aiming to quickly re-assert their control with another statement win.
Liverpool’s season has yet to take off, and they are likely out of contention for the title, with a rocky start continuing as they were held to a dramatic 3-3 draw by Brighton at Anfield last time out.
That loss means Jurgen Klopp’s Reds have won only two of their first seven games this season, drew four, leaving them in ninth place and 11 points behind Arsenal. A 2-0 win over Rangers in midweek, along with a win over Ajax, means their Champions League campaign is at least back on track, despite the fact that they still have a lot of work to do at home.

Prediction for Arsenal vs. Liverpool
Arsenal are positively brimming with confidence right now, having rebounded emphatically from their single hiccup of the season at Old Trafford – a game in which they also performed admirably.
Liverpool, on the other hand, has had their worst start to a season under Klopp and must respond quickly to prevent being fully left behind in humiliating fashion.
If recent trends continue, Arsenal have a fantastic chance to aggravate the Reds’ position at home, yet we believe they will put in a good effort here to win a share of the spoils in a tense clash.
