One of the big ties this weekend in the Premiership and Liverpool will be hosting Arsenal at Anfield Sunday afternoon. Liverpool are struggling to live up to their name of being one of the Big 4 this season, on the other hand Arsenal is having some injuries issue after start well in the Premier League. Loser of this match could spell the end to the title spur this season.
Liverpool are desperate for three points and with a squad close to full strength again, manager Rafa Benitez could be in for a chance to get his team back on the Premiership campaign. Benitez gave Italian midfielder Alberto Aquilani his full debut in the midweek 2-1 defeated against Fiorentina. He rested Jose Reina and Lucas while Fernando Torres returned from injury by sitting on the bench. It’s no surprise that Liverpool’s main focus will be the Premiership and the match against Arsenal will prove whether they are capable in returning to the top of the Premier League
Arsenal are hanging by the thread with their injury crisis as they prepare their trip to Anfield. The Gunners travelled to Olympiakos and lost 1-0 in the midweek Champions League tie without several of their key players, only Theo Walcott was name as one of the senior members of the 10 teenagers selected. The kids managed to put out a good performance and you might wonder where they will be in a few years time. Manger Arsene Wenger is already suffering from 9 injuries to his first team squad and Tomas Rosicky is the latest name on the list. It will be a taunting task for Arsenal facing one of their main rivals in the League with a depleted team.
As Liverpool crashed out of the Champions League this midweek while Arsenal emerges victory over the rivals in the European campaign this season. Arsenal will also claim victory over Liverpool in the Premiership standing and also in the Carling Cup 2-1 win back in late October. Although, things are set to change, Liverpool have their strongest players back from injuries while Arsenal are losing their players to injuries left and right. Maybe Arsenal have been the strongest lately but Liverpool looks likely to win at all cost on Sunday.
