Featured Game | Arsenal vs. Liverpool

Why you should back Liverpool

The Reds (13-7-9, 46 points) will be motivated to stay in the hunt for the top four, and they are likely to field their top squad to knock off the rust from the break. Real Madrid is on tap in the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals, and the Reds want to go into that matchup with confidence. Liverpool’s defense has been hit particularly hard by injuries, but Ozan Kabak was brought on in January and forms a solid partnership with Nathaniel Phillips in the back. Liverpool took a 3-1 victory over Arsenal in its September matchup.

Wolves came into their game against Arsenal with just 25 goals in 28 games, but they scored three in the draw, so Liverpool should see scoring opportunities. The Reds have scored 48 goals, led by Mohamed Salah, who has 17 to share the EPL lead with Harry Kane. Sadio Mane has seven goals and four assists, and he and Salah are considered among the world’s best players. 

Why you should back Arsenal

The Gunners (12-6-11, 42 points) have found their scoring in recent matches, netting nine goals in their last four Premier League games. The attack looks strong, with Martin Odegaard and Bukayo Saka creating chances for strikers Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Lacazette has a team-leading 11 goals, while Aubameyang has nine, and they should be able to take advantage of a decimated Reds defense. Liverpool has allowed 36 goals this season, second-most among the league’s top 10, and the Reds have posted only eight clean sheets.

Saka has five goals and two assists, while expected starter Nicolas Pepe also has scored five times. Arsenal is unbeaten in its last four league matches, including wins against Leicester and Tottenham, and it beat Liverpool 2-1 in their last meeting at the Emirates last July. Willian appears to be healthy after a minor calf injury before the break. The Brazilian seems to have returned to form after a shaky start to the season and has a team-high five assists.
