Liverpool are hoping to avoid a fifth consecutive game without a win when they host English Premier League leaders Arsenal on Sunday.

Liverpool are hoping to avoid a fifth consecutive game without a win when they host English Premier League leaders Arsenal on Sunday.

The reds are coming off a barren draw with Chelsea, leaving them in 8th place with 43 points on the log.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are still sitting pretty at the top of the EPL table with 72 points, five more than champions Manchester City.

City have a game in hand and they will undoubtedly be supporting Liverpool here, needing a favor to reduce the point gap at the top.

Arsenal’s last two league games have ended in similar 4-1 wins against Leeds and Crystal Palace and are on course for a first title in 19 years.

Only Arsenal, Man United and City have performed better on familiar territory this term than Klopp’s side, who have taken 16 points from the last 18 on offer at home.

Arsenal have kept only 12 clean sheets in their 61 games against Liverpool in the Premier League – their lowest such ratio against any team in the competition.

They have also scored at least 3 goals in each of their last 5 EPL wins – never before in their top-flight history have they done so 6 games in a row.

Liverpool are unbeaten in 9 home games against the visitors – winning each of their last six by a 22-4 aggregate score line.

Will this be the season that the Gunners beat Liverpool at Anfield, or will their dismal run continue?
