Goals. Comebacks. Drama that would put Jed Mercurio to shame. These two clubs have a knack of producing unmissable action – and they’re ready for battle once again
Liverpool v Arsenal, Saturday 24 August, 5pm, Sky Sports Premier League/HD (CH 512/502)
Think Liverpool versus Arsenal and what springs to mind? Robbie Fowler’s quick-fire hat-trick? Michael Thomas breaking Scouse hearts? That 4-4 draw at Anfield? Exactly. This is one rivalry that’s produced more than its share of unforgettable moments.
Their latest unmissable duel kicks off this weekend on Merseyside, and you can watch all the drama unfold exclusively live on Sky Sports Premier League. Out and about when the action is on? We feel for you, but luckily you can follow all the action on the Sky Sports app!
Both sides arrive at Anfield looking to give their early season hopes a major boost, but the problem for Arsenal is that they haven’t beaten Liverpool since April 2015. What’s worse, the Gunners were battered 5-1 the last time they played Liverpool away, in December 2018. Can Unai Emery’s men finally turn the tide, or will Jürgen Klopp’s title-chasing Reds prove just too good again?
We’ve temporarily misplaced our crystal ball, so the short answer is: we don’t know. One thing we do know, however, is that these teams usually produce goals when they get together. Lots and lots of goals. In their last seven matches alone, the ball hit the back of the net 35 times – that’s an average of five goals per game.
