Just 3 days away from the Premier League duel, Liverpool and Arsenal meet again, also on the champion’s field, this time in a match from the 16th round of the English League Cup.
In the previous round of the EFL Cup he passed Lincoln without any problems.
The show was total, the final result being 7-2 in favor of the cormorants.
Consider this aspect if you are looking for football predictions.
He is in great shape, with victories on the line in the new season. He scored 16 goals in 4 official matches, receiving instead 6. Salah and Mane are unstoppable, but it is unlikely that the two will be on the field as Jurgen Klopp usually rests his starters in EFL Cup matches.
Oxlade-Chamberlain, Matip and Henderson will definitely be missing due to injuries.
Thiago Alcantara is incompletely recovered after the injury with Chelsea, so uncertain for this match.
It is a team that has changed a lot for the better than last season. The new season started perfectly, but it got stuck 3 days ago right on Anfield Road, when it clearly gave way to Liverpool.
The attack looks much better with the arrival of the Brazilian Willian, the one who took Pepe out of the first 11, playing in line with Lacazette and Aubameyang.
There are still problems in the defense and this was best seen in the confrontation with Liverpool, in which he gave up 3 times. Mustafi, Chambers, Martinelli, Sokratis and Cedric Soares are injured or incompletely recovered.
Even in these conditions, the coach Mikel Arteta will make many changes compared to the standard team, sending in the field from the first minute players like Nicholas Pepe, Nketiah, Cebalos, Kolasinac, Saka or Nelson.
In Monday’s league match, Liverpool won 3-1, although Arsenal opened the scoring.
It was the 8th consecutive duel in which both teams scored.
It should be noted that Arsenal reached 9 consecutive matches without victory at Anfield.
⚽Liverpool vs Arsenal team likely:
Liverpool (4-3-3): Adrian – N. Williams, R. Williams, Fabinho, Tsimikas – Jota, Grujic, Jones – Shaqiri, Origi, Minamino.
Arsenal (3-4-3): Leno – Holding, Gabriel, Kolasinac – Maitland Niles, Wilock, Elneny, Saka – Pepe, Nketiah, Nelson.
Football Prediction of the Day Liverpool vs Arsenal
The League Cup is a less important competition in England and many teams approach these games with reservations.
The same happened in the case of the two protagonists in the first round and it is expected that this time the right holders will be rested.
Liverpool and Arsenal also met in 2019 in the EFL Cup, they played with the second team, and the result after 90 minutes was 5-5 !!! It is unlikely that we will have 10 goals again, but there are great chances for goals from both sides, especially since both the hosts and the guests have players of a certain value in attack.
