Both teams have won their first two matches of the new English Premier League season, so there is not much separating them in terms of form.

Arsenal have only conceded one goal so far but have not gone up against a front three as formidable as Liverpool’s.

Besides, Liverpool still have not lost a league match at Anfield in three years.
