Arsenal vs. Liverpool: The Gunners have a chance to compete for the Premier League title if they can end their nine-year Anfield curse.
ARSENAL can firmly establish themselves in the Premier League title chase this weekend if they can break their NINE-year Anfield curse.
After the international break, Liverpool hosts Arsenal, setting off a frantic stretch of games into the New Year.
Mikel Arteta’s team has been in excellent form recently.
They are in fifth place and have gone ten games without losing in all competitions, including eight in the league.
If they are to beat Jurgen Klopp’s side, they will have to end their nine-year winless streak at Anfield, a challenge made easier by the return of Thomas Partey from injury.
When Arsenal beat Liverpool in September 2012, Arteta was playing in midfield.
And, after seeing the Reds lose 3-2 to West Ham last time out, the Spaniard will enjoy his chances of repeating the feat from the bench on Saturday evening – three points from Merseyside would see Arsenal overtake their opponents into the top four.
Following England’s qualification for the 2022 Qatar World Cup, fans throughout the country are eager to return to the stands or to their sofas to cheer on their favorite teams.
Let’s take a look at what the Premier League has in store for us this weekend:
BETS WITHOUT RISK: NEW CUSTOMER DEALS WORTH OVER £2,000 Chelsea are soaring high at the moment, three points clear at the top after 11 games, but were held by Burnley at home last time out.
Only four of the bottom five teams have surrendered more than Brendan Rodgers’ leaky Foxes, who have suffered without Jonny Evans, Wesley Fofana, and James Justin this season.
Despite the fact that Leicester overcame Chelsea in the FA Cup Final last season, most will bet on an away win in this one, even if striker Romelu Lukaku is ruled out due to injury.
Despite their good start to life in the Premier League, Brentford lost to Norwich last time out, something no one else has done this season.
And the Magpies will be looking for a repeat performance on Saturday as new manager Eddie Howe aims to get the Toon off to a winning start.
Newcastle came back from a goal down to draw with Brighton in their last game.
Burnley have had a difficult start to the season and are now in 18th place, but they have preserved three clean sheets in their last three games versus Palace.
Patrick Vieira’s side, on the other hand, have caught the eye and are currently in mid-table, so they will fancy their chances of winning a third Premier League game in a row for the first time in more than a decade… Brinkwire Brief News.
