Arsenal win pls. The bigger the gap opens between us and the teams below us the better.

It's The Emirates, one of our worst bogey grounds. We have a single win there in the league since it opened in 2006.

We will lose.

Ospina; Bellerin - Gabriel - Koscielny - Monreal; Ramsey - Coquelin; Cazorla - Özil - Alexis; Giroud

I'd like to see Gabriel partner Koscielny. Liverpool will try to utilize the mobility of Sterling, Markovic, Coutinho, and Sturridge (if they play him through his injury) and Gabriel is much better suited to stopping this than Mertesacker. He was very good against Newcastle last time out and deserves a run alongside Koscielny. Coquelin's athleticism compared to our other "DM" options has been very beneficial for us, and is especially important against Liverpool. The key for our midfield will be his ability to quickly distribute when Liverpool press.

Avoid an early concession and I'm pretty confident in the three points.

You could play a team of one legged men and likely still take the points at home against us. We just don't seem to be able to pick up the wins there, even if we go into the game playing the better football and with better form. It's annoying.

To be fair, there haven't been many times Liverpool have visited the Emirates ahead of Arsenal in the league or playing better football. :ds:

Despite a run of good games, I have a bad feeling about this fixture. I know they're without Skrtl and possibly Sturridge, but we'll underestimate Liverpool. Should win, must win...might not win.

One defeat(albeit a hard hitting defeat against main rivals both in terms of tradition and league table) for Liverpool seems to really have had a bad effect on the positivity of their fans on here. I think they have reason to be optimistic, they are a good team with a very good manager. I think Skrtel is a miss for them though, he's not the most cultured centre half but he leads that back three they've been playing and their defence in general.

Score draw.

It's the easiest three points of the season because we're playing Liverpool at the Emirates you stupid turd.
So playing Liverpool at the Emirates is easier than playing someone like Burnley then yeah? Liverpool have only been beaten once in the league in nearly four months and will give you a game ffs. You may indeed win, but it won't be by much and it certainly won't be easy you blethering idiot.

Arsenal should beat over achieving Liverpool quite easily, i would not be surprised if it was 4 or 5 goals to 1........with the 1 being a penalty of course.

You need to lighten up. Seriously.

Michael Owen just said "Sterling is better than Ozil. Probably better than Welbeck"

LOL.

if this game was to be won by deflection, a fluke, or a referee assisted goal, I wander which team that will be :D
