Gunners aim to clinch title with long-awaited victory at Anfield.

    It has been more than a decade since Arsenal won the Premier League at Anfield, but they will be sure to take another step towards the title by beating Liverpool on Sunday.

    The Gunners are heading to Merseyside on the crest of a wave after seven consecutive top-flight victories.

    Manchester City can cut Arsenal’s lead at the top of the table to five points with a win over Southampton on Saturday, and the champions will look to the Reds for good measure.

    Eighth-placed Liverpool have lost a goalless draw to Chelsea after three defeats in a row and they desperately need points to have any chance of qualifying for European competition.

    The Reds have not lost at home to Arsenal in the top flight since a 2-0 defeat in September 2012 and have won their last six Premier League matches against the London club in their own backyard.

    Reds need more home comforts

    Although this season should be forgotten for Liverpool, their problems were not related to their home form.

    Jurgen Klopp’s team have only lost once at Anfield in the top flight and have won five of their last six Premier League home matches.

    They thrashed Manchester United 7-0 in their last home game and went seven hours and 26 minutes without conceding a Premier League goal at Anfield after kicking Kiernan Dewsbury Hall for Leicester City in December.

    Klopp is looking to win seven consecutive times against the same opponent in his top-flight coaching career, the first time since defeating Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund (2009–15).

    The last manager to win seven home matches in the top division against Arsenal was John Nicholson between 1921 and 1928 for Sheffield United.

    Ramsdale can match Cech and Ederson

    Arsenal have conceded just nine goals in the Premier League this season.

    Aaron Ramsdale kept nine clean sheets away in a brilliant campaign that could have ended the Gunners’ long wait for a title.

    Petr Cech (11 in 2004/05, 10 in 2008/09) and Ederson (11 in 2018/19, 10 in 2021/22) are the only goalkeepers to record at least 10 away strikeouts in the Premier League season. leagues.

    Ramsdale is just one step away from joining a very exclusive club.

    Salah is back with a bang?

    Mohamed Salah has been limited to a stand-in at Stamford Bridge this week, but the striker must return to take on the leaders.

    Salah scored 105 Premier League goals in 105 Anfield appearances for the Reds (74 goals, 31 assists).

    The Egypt star is looking to score in four straight top-flight home games for the first time since six games between January and June 2020.

    He also boasts a track record that shows he enjoys facing Arsenal, having had a hand in seven goals in five games against the Gunners at Anfield (5 goals, 2 assists).

    Will Trossard torment the Reds again?

    Leandro Trossar scored a hat-trick for Brighton & Hove Albion in October against Liverpool (3-3).

    Only two players have scored at Anfield for two different teams in the same Premier League season: Dean Saunders in 1992-93 (Liverpool, Aston Villa) and Robbie Keane in 2008-09 (Liverpool, ” Tottenham).

    No player has managed to score a goal against Liverpool’s home for two different away clubs in the same campaign.
