Arsenal are top of the Premier League, level on points with Aston Villa and one point ahead of Liverpool. Klopp’s side can take the lead if they can win at home at Anfield. It is important that both clubs win today and break away a little from Manchester City, who have been in decline lately. But the “city dwellers” were not far behind, only 5 points behind the leader, even if they only managed to win once in the last 6 matches. But Manchester City lost only to Aston Villa, having drawn 4 times – with Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool and Crystal Palace. Respectable opponents. And you should also not hope that Manchester City will achieve such results all the time: the “citizens” have already shown that they can overtake any opponent, delivering long winning streaks.

Last season, Arsenal was 7 points ahead of Manchester City after the 18th round, and in the remaining time the townspeople not only regained it, but also brought the Gunners 5 points to the finish, winning with confidence the Premier League, then the FA Cup with the Champions League.

“Arsenal” was disappointed with the bench, there was no normal number of attackers. The leaders withdrew from the game and there was no way to replace them. And Arsenal didn’t buy anyone this winter, which was a big mistake. The Gunners have strengthened well this summer and are now showing good football, but they still need to strengthen this winter if there is such an opportunity. But in any case, the composition is already more complete.

In Liverpool, the change of generations is being felt and the leaders of the past are gradually fading into the background or even leaving the club altogether. The midfield line has been updated, with only Salah in attack from the old guard. It is difficult to replace leaders, as demonstrated last season when Liverpool finished 5th and failed to qualify for the Champions League. Today, the club is starting to come to its senses, but the best examples of Klopp’s team are still far away.
