Liverpool vs Arsenal (LIVE UPDATES): Gunners seek another upset against Reds

Arsenal-Liverpool

After beating Premier League Champions Liverpool to the season-opening Community Shield few weeks back, Arsenal will be gunning for another upset against the Reds at Anfield.

The Gunners are enjoying a new lease of life under manager Mikel Arteta; winning their first two fixtures in the current campaign.

Though it looks like a tough call, the North London side will be hoping to make it three straight wins like Everton and Leicester City tonight.

However, Jurgen Klopp’s men are unbeaten at home in their last 60 league games – with 49 wins and 11 draws – meaning the Gunners have to be super good to halt this amazing run.

Even though many would be quick to pick Liverpool as the favourites tonight, the lessons from the Manchester City and Bayern Munich ties indicate that just anything could happen at Anfield.
