Liverpool vs Arsenal Preview and Livestream

Liverpool were looking like one of the deadliest in-form teams in Europe at the start of the season, utterly thrashing anyone in their path. However, in a title race as tight as it is this season, it costs a lot to drop even a single point and Liverpool have been guilty of it on numerous occasions recently leading to them drifting off 11 points off top spot. They have had a solid run in the EFL Cup though and edged out Leicester on penalties to make it to the semi-finals. With the league crown looking out of sight, Jurgen Klopp is likely to go all out to achieve whatever silverware they can this season.

Arsenal, on the other hand, have had an easy run up to the semis, but their league form at the moment is impressive. Mikel Arteta will know that a trophy is always a sure sign of showcasing your progress and will thus be eager to get a step closer to a cup triumph at the cost of Liverpool.

Liverpool vs Arsenal Prediction

Liverpool are sorely missing the squad depth from earlier in the season which has vanished through injuries, COVID and the AFCON. Arsenal are in decent form going into the match and with the Reds’ shortage up front, it could prove a mouth-watering contest for the Gunners. We thus predict Arsenal to win 2-1 in what would be a close-fought tie.
