I spent seven good years playing for Liverpool. Despite my allegiance, I can’t help but feel that my former club are in for a very tough time tonight.
As league leaders, Arsene Wenger’s men are riding high on confidence and I can see them emerging from the clash as 3-2 winners.
With Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in central midfield, Arsenal will have the pace to stretch a game, something they are missing without the injured Theo Walcott.
If Liverpool are to emerge from this encounter with anything, they will have to stop Arsenal from dominating the engine room.
With the Gunners preferring to control possession, midfielders like Steven Gerrard and Jordan Henderson have to wrest control and supply the ammunition for their SAS hit squad of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge.
