FREE PREMIER LEAGUE Pick Liverpool Vs Arsenal
We are just about to enter the new year and the Premier League isn’t stopping to excite us with its fixture. Its a fixture of two giants of England with huge amount of history, supporters and emotions that are embedded to their respective badges. Its the Reds who are hosting the Gunners at their home. Things are already getting hot in pre-match confrences as the Gunners boss already declared that ‘They won’t be waving the white flag at Anfield’. Other side of the grass, Klopp would really want to continue their 19 game unbeaten run. We can expect the big names making to the playing XI but also some big names getting dropped for the sake of the team. Unai Emery, the Gunners boss made it clear that Ozil wont be making trip to Anfield as the new Arsenal team looks to play for each other more as they used to play under Arsene’s span. The ideology is simple under the new Spanish boss i.e. to have more work rate, which the German international clearly lacks. The Reds will be enjoying the home fixture but they will be missing the solid Center half Gomez(injured) and midfielder James Milner(injured) who is still playing outstanding in his past years. Its not an easy week for the Klopp men as they already faced Manchester United and are about to face Arsenal(H) and Manchester City(A) before and after the New Year respectively.
The Reds will be coming with a clear and solid motto that they are following since the start of the 2018/19 season i.e. simply get the win. Their front three are playing phenomenal this season and the addition of the Swiss International, Shaqiri made them an unstoppable force in the Premier League. Liverpool will be lining up in a 4-3-3 holding formation with front three as Salah, Firminho, Mane. Due to injury of James Milner, Keita will be added to fill his absence. The Reds midfield will be having Keita, Fabinho, Wijnaldum. Its a clear view that the Brazilian defensive midfielder adds a new dimension to this attacking Liverpool side. He not only provides defensive stability but also provides a creative attribute from the deep, as he did against Manchester united(Assist to Mane). It wont be an easy fixture for the Reds but we can expect their Rock N Roll football.
Gunners will be having a trip to Anfield to test their own capabilities, as their Spanish boss said. The Spanish manager brought a lot of change in mentality of the team. They now work as a unit and play with much intensity as they used to do before and the results says the rest of the talking. They are on the 5th spot with 38 points just to behind their rivals Chelsea. The Gunners will be lining up in 3-4-2-1 with Aubameyang leading the line-up, who is current top scorer of the season with 13 goals to his names and 3 assists. Talking about the assists, arsenal fans will be missing the creator, Ozil, as he’s not picked up for the thriller and will also be missing Mustafi (Injured), Monreal (Injured), Bellerin (Injured), Smith-Rowe (Injured), Mavropanos (Injured), Welbeck (Injured), Holding (Injured), Mkhitaryan (Injured). Maitland-Niles is expected to start for the gunners. This Gunners squad have clear potential to beat Reds and silence the raging crowd of Anfield.

FREE PREMIER LEAGUE Prediction Liverpool Vs Arsenal
Despite of having a great form and great defensive record this season of scoring 43 and allowing just 7 goals in 19 matches we can see Arsenal testing their defense. Arsenal ability to overload the wings will be a tough job for Liverpool’s defense to handle and Arsenal playing with 3 at the back will be easy task for Liverpool wingers. Reds seems to be undefeatable with the current form but we can expect goals from both sides. Arsenal’s weapon Torriera will play an important part in the fixture. Arsenal must be careful on the counters and Liverpool have to look their opposite men during set pieces. Team with more character will be having a upper hand.
