Liverpool vs Arsenal
England – Carabao Cup
Date: Thursday, 13 January 2022
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Lately, the Reds have experienced a slight drop in form, but it has not done much harm to them. Disregarding a hard-fought loss to Leicester, they have been unbeaten for quite some time now.
And at home, it’s been a different story. The team has been simply otherworldly at Anfield. They are on a long winning streak here, and are scoring goals at an unbelievable rate.
Meanwhile, the Gunners have climbed to the fourth position in the league table after a long and tiring journey, and this surely must have taken its toll on them.
Moreover, they have been struggling a bit on the road in recent weeks, and importantly, they also have a poor h2h record against this foe over the years.
Taking into account these observations, expect a win for Liverpool this Thursday at their home.
