Jonathan Wilson on Liverpool’s false start
Hello and welcome to live, minute-by-minute coverage of Arsenal v Liverpool at the Emirates. For both teams, this is a biggie. Arsenal have the chance to make a statement by beating one of the Big Two in a live league game for the first time since 2015*; Liverpool can stimulate their season by ransacking Fortress Emirates.
Arsenal have won all five home games this season, scoring 14 goals in the process. For any team not called Manchester City, that’s highly impressive. Liverpool’s away form, by contrast, has been poor: four games, no wins, a couple of troubling defeats to Manchester United and Napoli. The upshot is that, for the first time in a long while, Arsenal are favourites to win a football match against Liverpool.
Kick off 4.30pm.
* Arsenal did beat Liverpool 2-1 at the Emirates in July 2020, but it was just after Liverpool won the league
