League leaders Arsenal will be looking to make it eight wins from nine matches when they take on Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
The visitors, meanwhile, are aiming to return to winning ways having drawn their last two league matches.
Arsenal vs. Liverpool preview
Arsenal have won one of their last 14 Premier League matches against Liverpool (D4 L9), a 2-1 home win back in July 2020. They’ve lost their last four in a row but have never lost five league games in a row against Liverpool.
Liverpool have won their last two away league games against Arsenal, as many as in their previous 20 visits (W2 D9 L9). They’ve never won three consecutive away league matches against the Gunners.
Arsenal are on a run of 13 consecutive Premier League matches without a clean sheet against Liverpool, conceding 39 goals in those games. They have only had one longer run against an opponent without a clean sheet in the competition: 14 versus Man City (ongoing).
Arsenal have won their last seven Premier League home games, their longest run at the Emirates since a run of 10 in 2018-19 under Unai Emery. However, the Gunners haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last nine home league games.
Liverpool have conceded the first goal in nine of their last 11 Premier League games, but have only gone on to lose one of those (1-2 vs Manchester United in August).
