Arsenal have the chance to move to within one point of Liverpool when the sides meet at the Emirates Stadium in Saturday’s Premier League clash.
The Gunners are only four points adrift of the struggling champions, despite winning just three of their last nine matches in the league.

Having won just one of the last 14 games against this opposition within normal time, they are available at 11/5 (3.20) with bet365 to pull off a long-awaited victory here.
Despite their poor overall form, Jurgen Klopp’s men have actually won five of their last six away matches in all competitions and are 23/20 (2.15) favourites to come out on top in this one.

Arsenal vs Liverpool Team News
Willian and Bukayo Saka should be fit to return after missing the 3-3 draw against West Ham prior to the international break, although Emile Smith Rowe is a doubt after picking up an injury on duty with the England under-21 squad.
Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi are in contention after missing the last couple of games prior to the international break due to injury and Caoimhin Kelleher will be assessed, but Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Jordan Henderson remain sidelined.
Arsenal vs Liverpool Preview
While defensive absentees have been the main story in the Reds’ struggling season, they have also completely lost their cutting edge in front of goal of late.
Having scored just nine goals in their last 10 matches prior to the international break, it is hard to see them having much joy at a ground where the hosts have conceded fewer home goals than all but three teams in the league.
What’s more, Mikel Arteta has proven adept at shutting down the opposition in high profile matches, with his side conceding just eight goals in nine league matches against Manchester City, Manchester United, Leicester, Chelsea and Tottenham so far this campaign.
Arsenal vs Liverpool Tips and Predictions
All in all, odds of 11/10 (2.10) look well worth considering on under 2.5 goals being scored for Liverpool’s eighth game in a row, as well as a third meeting in four with Arsenal.
