3 Points at Anfield?
This Forthcoming Saturday evening Arsenal travel to Merseyside to play Liverpool in the five-thirty kick-off.
It’s not been the most fruitful of travelling spots for the gunners of late with their last 3 points coming in August of 2012 in a 2-0 victory. However Mikel Arteta’s men are starting to play and perform how he had envisioned when he took over and are now unbeaten in 10 in all competitions. Here our a couple of reasons I think could be potential gateways to a shock win for Arsenal.
First of all The new back five of arsenal (Ramsdale , Tomiyasu, White , Gabriel and Tierney/Naveres) have been in some real great form with Ramsdale and Gabriel shining more than others. In Past encounters Arsenal defensive back lines have rolled over and been slaughtered but this back line seems to love defending before anything else. Isee this as there first big test together as a group.
Injuries are also a big cause of concern for Liverpool with Henderson , Mane and Robertson all doubtful for the game. Despite all this Liverpool to have more than capable players to fill in. However with arsenal full fit barring potentially Thomas Partey which will be a hammer blow they must seize on this opportunity and run at Liverpool and use Henderson’s absence to dominate in midfield because if Salah is giving service on current form he is the best player in the world.
Carrying on with Salah arsenal must double up and not allow him to run at the back line. Tactical fouls in non dangerous areas thus not allowing arsenal to get stretched.
Aubameyang is going to be starved of service and may only have one or two half chances in the game so he must discover his old form and his home form from so far this season so we’re not to be left licking our wounds come Saturday dinner time. And that sums it all up.
