Liverpool will be hosting Arsenal at home on Saturday, and will be hoping to exact revenge for the 2-0 loss that they suffered at the Emirates earlier in the season. Here are three things that Liverpool will need to do to beat high-flying Arsenal.
1. SAS need to fire
Liverpool have been over reliant on their premier strike pairing of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge. The pair of them have scored 37 of the 58 goals that Liverpool have scored in the Premier League this season, or almost 64% of the goals. They look the most likely source for goals and they will have to fire on all cylinders if Liverpool have to get all three points out of the game.
In the last meeting between the two sides earlier in the season at the Emirates, Arsenal’s defense managed to keep them quiet as they ran to a comfortable 2-0 win. However, SAS will be determined to overturn that disappointing showing against the second meanest defense in the league, and their understanding in the final third will be critical for Liverpool.
