STAR FOOTBALL PREVIEW Sun: Liverpool v Arsenal

In a fixture that has produced so much entertainment over the years, Arsenal take on Liverpool on Sunday afternoon as the Gunners hope to edge closer to the Premier League title.

Liverpool have endured a really disappointing and underwhelming season which, barring something special, is going to see them slip out of the top-four and miss out on Champions League football next season.

Their season was perfectly encapsulated and summed up by the hammering that they received from Manchester City last weekend which was then followed by a dull and drab 0-0 draw to Chelsea a few days later.

These results have left their prospects of reaching the top-four looking incredibly bleak with the Reds now sitting 10 points behind fourth-placed Manchester United with 10 matches remaining.

If they are to stand any chance of hunting down United and closing that gap on them, they will need to start by producing a result against Arsenal on Sunday afternoon.

In terms of team news for Klopp’s side, Luis Diaz is edging closer to a retur but this one still might come too soon for the Colombian.

It is squeaky-bum time for Arsenal as they move closer and closer to that unexpected Premier League title, which would be the club’s first in nearly 20 years.

In their last Premier League outing, they looked comfortable in victory over Leeds United at the Emirates Stadium with goals from Gabriel Jesus, Ben White and Granit Xhaka helping them to a 4-1 victory over Javi Gracia’s side.

That kept Arsenal’s lead over Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table at eight points with nine matches remaining. It is starting to feel very real now for the Gunners, but Mikel Arteta’s side must not let this go to their head and stay focussed on the task at hand.

Arteta will be hoping to welcome back defender William Saliba on Sunday with the Frenchman having been sidelined through injury in recent weeks, but Eddie Nketiah, Takehiro Tomiyasu and Mohamed Elneny will definitely all miss out.

Liverpool’s defence has looked leaky at times and we all know how potent Arsenal can be in attack so I am expecting plenty of goals at Anfield on Sunday afternoon – a bet of Arsenal and over 2.5 goals at 5/2 with starsports.bet looks appealing.

I am also expecting Bukayo Saka to continue the marvellous campaign that he’s enjoyed with another goal on Sunday.
