All eyes will be on the Emirates come Sunday afternoon (16:30) as third-placed Arsenal take on league leaders Liverpool.

The visitors currently have a five-point lead at the summit of the table, and the onus is on the Gunners to take the game to the Reds and close the gap on Jurgen Klopp's men.

Both outfits enhanced their title credentials in midweek, as the Gunners emerged victorious 2-1 against Nottingham Forest, while Klopp's side demolished Chelsea 4-1.

Team News

Fabio Viera and Jurrien Timber remain on the sidelines as they continue to recover from injury, while Mohamed Elneny is due to return to the matchday squad following Egypt's elimination from the Africa Cup of Nations.

As for Liverpool, none of Wataru Endo, Mohamed Salah, Kostas Tsimikas, Stefan Bajcetic, Ben Doak, Joel Matip or Thiago Alcantara will feature here, but Trent Alexander-Arnold could be welcomed back into the starting XI, despite Conor Bradley's recent performances.

Match Odds

Arsenal are 5/4 to claim a vital three points, the draw is 13/5 and Liverpool are 21/10 to win.

Liverpool to win @ 21/10

The sides look closely matched on paper, and these big games are often decided by a moment of magic.

However, I find it difficult to look past a Liverpool side who are on a 15-game unbeaten streak in the Premier League, despite this clash being at the Emirates.

Mikel Arteta’s squad have collected 26 points from a possible 33 in their 11 home league games to date, with their only defeat coming against West Ham, so they will be confident of ending Liverpool's winning streak, but the Reds have only lost once this season - against Arsenal's North London rivals, Spurs.

Diogo Jota to score anytime @ 15/8

Diogo Jota, or 'Jota the slotter' as he's become known amongst the Anfield faithful, has scored 13 goals across all competitions this season, with eight of those coming in the Premier League.

The Portugal international has been in inspired form for the Reds, particularly during Mo Salah's absence at the Africa Cup of Nations, scoring in Wednesday’s win over Chelsea, making it four goals in the past four games, and is likely to lead the line again at the Emirates.

Jota also has an impressive record against Arsenal since moving to Anfield from Wolves in the summer of 2020, netting on seven occasions in the Reds' previous 11 encounters with the Gunners.
