Liverpool vs Arsenal – Saturday 4th March 2017 – 17:30 - BT Sport 1

Liverpool

Liverpool welcome Arsenal to Anfield in a huge Premier League match, with Liverpool in desperate need of a win.

Jurgen Klopp's men come into this match on the back of a 3-1 defeat against Leicester, continuing a poor run of four defeats in six matches.

Jamie Vardy (28) opened the scoring for Leicester, with Vardy running in behind to give the Foxes a deserved lead.

Danny Drinkwater (39) doubled the advantage in the first half, with a stunning strike from outside the box.

Vardy scored his second goal of the game and Leicester's third (60), with the Foxes in dreamland.

Philippe Coutinho (68) got one back for the visitors, but in truth Liverpool were absolutely shocking.

Winless Streak Continues

It was another poor display from Liverpool, who slip further into disarray, with four defeats in their last six games.

Liverpool's only recent success is the Tottenham fixture, where they put in an excellent display against the North London side.

They have endured a miserable 2017, winning just one Premier League game and all but ending their slim title hopes.

Liverpool's record against the top four sides has been impeccable, they have yet to lose a match against a top six rival.

Reds Favourites

Liverpool head into this fixture as the favourites, with home advantage and their impeccable record against their rivals informing the odds.

Another defeat could mean they drop below United to sixth, with the Red Devils still enjoying a game in hand.

The Reds will be looking to continue their overall record against Arsenal, with Liverpool winning 68, drawing 51 and losing 68 of 187 fixtures.

Liverpool are 1/1 with Roberto Firmino at 5/1 to score first.

anfieldGunners In Mixed Form

The Gunners come into this match in mixed form, despite recording a narrow win against non league Sutton United.

Lucas Perez (26) opened the scoring for Arsenal, with the Spaniard giving the Gunners a precious lead.

Theo Walcott (55) doubled the Gunners advantage in the second half, it proved to be the winning goal.

This result has done little to quell the controversy surrounding Wenger, with many Arsenal fans now conceding his time is up.

The win against Sutton and progression in the FA Cup has done little to appease the Gunners faithful.

Gunners Down And Out

The Gunners now desperately need to register a win in this fixture, with the top four their only realistic ambitions again.

Poor results against Chelsea and Watford now mean they have lost two of their last six matches.

Arsenal's loss against Bayern Munich also means their Champions League campaign is all but over.

It's proved to be the same old for Arsenal, with a top four finish and FA Cup run all that is left in this campaign.

Gunners Underdogs

Arsenal come into this match as the underdogs, with their away record against top rivals very poor.

Wenger's men will be looking to avoid their fourth defeat in six matches, Wenger needs a win here.

Arsenal will be looking to avenge the defeat earlier in the season, where Liverpool beat them 4-3 at the Emirates.

Arsenal are 13/5 with Alexis Sanchez at 6/1 to open the scoring.

The second fixture sees Tottenham take on Everton at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.

Tottenham come into the fixture in excellent form having secured a 4-0 win against Stoke, with Harry Kane bagging his 9th career hat-trick.

Everton are one of the form sides in the Premier League and appear to have rediscovered their early season form under Koeman.
