Arsenal vs Liverpool LIVE: Latest Premier League updates


Klopp: ‘Mo is ready to train’

Tonight’s clash between Arsenal and Liverpool will have big ramifications at the top of the Premier League table. This is a long-awaited game in hand for both teams and winning could define their seasons.

For Arsenal, tonight’s fixture is an opportunity to show how far they have progressed under manager Mikel Arteta. Victory for the Gunners would place them securely in the top four and put them on course for Champions League football next season. Liverpool, meanwhile, have the chance to cut the gap on league leaders, Manchester City, to just one point.

Having trailed by 14-points at certain parts of this season it’s a remarkable effort from Jurgen Klopp’s men to have destiny in their own hands. If Liverpool win all their remaining league fixtures – including a clash with City – they will lift the Premier League trophy in May.

History is with the Reds in this fixture though. Since 2014/15 Arsenal have only beaten their Merseyside opponents once in the top-flight – and that came immediately after Liverpool sealed the Premier League title and had noticeably dropped the pace post-pandemic shutdown in 2019/20. They also have the honour of being the most in-form side in Europe: no other club in any league can match Liverpool’s eight-game win streak right now. The Reds have netted 21 times in that run, conceding only twice, highlighting the task which stands in front of Mikel Arteta and his side tonight.

33 mins: Lacazette does brilliantly to turn the ball around Matip and roll away from the defender. He gives it to Martinelli who slips a pass into the box for Odegaard. Odegaard tries to send it back to Lacazette – now in space on the left side of the area – but the pass it overhit and the attack dies down.

30 mins: Strange game this one. It’s being played at very fast tempo which feels exciting but there hasn’t actually been that much happening in it.

I don’t think Alisson has had to make a save and Aaron Ramsdale’s only made one so far.

26 mins: The referee is letting tackles go. Jota is taken out for Liverpool who respond through Robertson shouldering Saka to ground. Neither challenge warrants a free kick until the ball comes to Fabinho who gets sandwiched between Lacazette and Odegaard inside his own half. Then the whistle goes for a free kick much to the displeasure of the Arsenal players who had set off on a counter-attack.

20 mins: Robertson misplaces a pass across the pitch towards Sadio Mane and gives the ball straight to Aaron Ramsdale just inside the Arsenal box.

It’s been a fairly even opening 20 minutes here.

17 mins: Liverpool are looking to use the wide areas to get the ball into the box. Andy Robertson and Lus Diaz first combine on the left but find no joy so the ball is switched out to the right side. Jordan Henderson leaves it for Trent Alexander-Arnold who’s cross gets blocked and Thomas Partey completes the clearance.

14 mins: Aaron Ramsdale’s hoof down the pitch comes out to Bukayo Saka but Andy Robertson gets inbetween him and the ball and nods it safely back to Alisson in Liverpool’s goal.

Chance! Gabriel Martinelli makes a good run down the left wing and shimmies around Trent Alexander-Arnold. He slides a pass into the six-yard box but Alexandre Lacazette can’t quite get there before Andy Robertson clears the danger.

8 mins: Odegaard presses high up the pitch and wins a round of applause from the home fans as he tracks the ball across Liverpool’s final third. The visitors manage to play it out from the back though and send it into Thiago Alcantara in midfield. He tries to chip the ball into the box for Diogo Jota but Ben White intercepts with a headed clearance.
