Liverpool travel to Arsenal on Saturday evening in what is set to be an exciting game for the neutral but a nervous time for any Kopites or Gunners.

The Reds come into this fixture on the back of a 4-1 win over Cardiff. Arsenal, on the other hand, drew 2-2 with Crystal Palace in their most recent fixture which was a surprise for many.
The Londoners started the season with some tough fixtures but had quietly (we’ll not so quietly actually, their performances have caught everyone’s eye) gone about their business until that hiccup against Palace.
Liverpool remain unbeaten in the league at the moment alongside City and Chelsea but Arsenal have lost twice so far this season.
Injuries for the Reds mean doubts are banging over Naby Keita and Jordan Henderson.
Arsenal have taken a bit of a hit and also have a league cup game to contend with prior to our clash. Koscielny remains out, Bellerin is a doubt while both Kolasinac and Monreal will undergo late fitness tests.
The last time the two sides met was in December last year. Living up to its hype, that game ended 3-3 with Coutinho, Salah and Firmino on the scoresheet for Liverpool. Arsenal’s last trip to Anfield saw them fail to find the back of the net as the Reds won 4-0.
Liverpool have not lost to Arsenal since April 2015.
I am in Inverness for this one as I’m away for my birthday. I am hoping I can catch the game in a nice cosy Scottish pub haha. I am not sure whether we’ll have enough to get a win from the Emirates but I can see this one being a high scoring draw.
Enjoy the match folks wherever you are watching!
