Arsenal-Liverpool, 10th matchday, stadium: "Emirates", 18:30, cytavision3
Arsenal and Liverpool go head-to-head in the most important game of the season with the Londoners looking to build on their near-dream start to the season and the Reds looking to win and move up the table.
Victory for the top
Arsenal wants to celebrate another victory. Mikel Arteta's side are two points off the top of the Premier League after yesterday's home win over Manchester City. However, even if they prevail today, a new man will be in first place and will have celebrated 10 wins in 11 matches in all competitions this year, something that has happened for more than 100 years.
Liverpool wants to return to winning ways. Jurgen Klopp's side have their "backs against the wall" and are forced to "chase" victory, as they are already coming off two consecutive mid-table draws. However, the German coach showed that he accepts the existing situation and emphasized that it will be very difficult for his team to win this year's title.
