The community shield might be Arsenal’s only shot at a silverware at the moment, and I’m pretty sure they’re going to put the blood into it. On the other hand, Liverpool has achieved the Premier League title, and they still look comfortable to win it again next season even though they recently drew against Salzburg in the friendlies.
In this article, we’re going to compare these two teams in terms of their head to head records, their previous games records, winning margins, and then try to predict the game’s possible outcome tomorrow. Let’s get on with it.
Head to Head
In their last eight head to head games, Liverpool has won most of the time, and with good margins, I should add. They have won a total of 4 out of their eight games against Arsenal. Arsenal has won 2, and the rest were draws. However, one thing is fascinating, and it is the fact that Arsenal has succeeded in their last two meetings.
In 2019, Arsenal defeated Liverpool in a game that ended in 5 – 5 full time. They went on to penalties, and Arsenal won with 5 – 4. The match’s result was against so many predictions, especially considering Arsenal’s form at the time. In July 2020, Arsenal faced off with Liverpool again, and they repeated their 2019 success, but this time, it was a 2 – 1 before the end of full time.
Previous Games Records
Arsenal’s improvement in the past season has been a source of great joy to the fans, and if they’re able to beat the current champions of England for the third time in a row, they’re probably going to achieve the status they’d lost a few years back.
In the last eight games, Arsenal has performed well against people’s thoughts. They’ve won 5 of their games, and these wins were against some of the top teams in the Premier League. They drew one and lost two too. This should put them in your mind as a formidable team by now.
Liverpool has a record that’s just similar to Arsenal’s. The only difference is that they have only lost one game and drawn 2. They’ve won 5, and those five games were with good margins. They’re the Champions of England, no doubts there, but they’ll have to come with something more than just that title to be able to make an impact against this current Arsenal side.
When it comes to winning margins and which team can score more goals, there’s no doubt that Liverpool would have the upper hand. However, Arsenal has also managed to record a 3-goal margin in their last game. We can say that the team currently has players who can put some goals at the back of the net against any group at all. We’ll have to wait to see how this one plays out tomorrow.
We’ll place the odds of this game at 1.5 for Arsenal to win, 1.8 for Liverpool to win, and 2.5 for a draw.
May the better side win.
