    It's kind of expected.

    I'm fine with Fabinho getting a run of games, and I also want to see him against a team who moves the ball more.

    It should be interesting to see how Arsenal attempts to attack Liverpool. We know they can score, but with Liverpool's front 3 (plus Shaqiri I imagine) rounding into a bit more form, the balance will be a difficult test.

    I wouldn't be shocked to see Liverpool drop points, but I'm hopeful they play to their potential.

    I would be surprised to see anything but a Liverpool win. But it would be a pleasant surprise :)

    If Bournemouth is gonna stay in the top half this year, this is the type of game they need to win. You can't be dropping points to teams below you in the table.

    This is one of those games where I feel more confident than usual. The way Arsenal is built plays very well into Liverpool's approach. I expect Wijnaldum/Fabinho in midfield...I actually wouldn't mind seeing the 4-2-3-1 again:

    TAA - Gomez - van Dijk - Robertson
    Wijnaldum - Fabinho
    Shaqiri - Firmino - Mane
    Salah​

    Man City-Southampton is Sunday.

    Wolves-Spurs is tomorrow night, not Sunday.

    I'd be thrilled with a point. I'm just hoping it's close enough to not be fast forwarding through the entire second half.

    That's the lineup I would probably use, but I am having a hard time visualizing Klopp not selecting Milner for this game.

    As long as they arent doing Gomez at RB this week (not that I hate it, but not against Arsenal) I'll probably be okay with what they put out. Liverpool really need this game to keep pace with City. This feels like it's going to be a shootout, unless Liverpool puts on the clamps. This could be like a 4-2 game.

    Do you support Arsenal?

    And yes, I'm having that same feel. It's the same mental hurdle that the team had against Chelsea for years. Winless against Liverpool in 7.

    Only half kidding. They are still murdering teams this year and their metrics are outstanding. They certainly arent worse without him.

    It's not a mental hurdle. Liverpool have just been better.

    Yeah, but 7 straight matches without a win is still quite a bit. They even beat Bayern and City multiple times in that span of games

    This is from 2 weeks ago.

    "It’s not hard to describe just how good Manchester City are. They’re the only team in the Premier League to take over 18 shots per game. They take 22.38. They’re the only team to average over two expected goals per match. They average 2.80. Defensively, they’re the only team to concede fewer than eight shots per game. They concede 6.67. They’re the only team to concede fewer than 0.80 expected goals per match. They concede 0.54"

    They are statistically no worse than last year and they are undefeated and they aren't worse.

    Scared to death for tomorrow, considering Arsenal's injury woes and the back-line was already brutal to being with talent wise. Only saving grace is that the game is at Emirates.
