Liverpool are ready to take down Arsenal for the second time this season on Friday. Here are five reasons the Reds with beat the Gunners at the Emirates.

This game marks the half way point of the season. It is also the first time we will face a team we have already played in the Premier League this year. There is only one point between the teams. The Reds have 34 points and Arsenal sit one place below on 33 points.

A win for either team will be a huge plus in the race for a Champions League place in 2018/19. The Gunners are desperate to get back after missing out on the top European competition for the first time in almost two decades. Liverpool have just got back and have no intention on being on the outside again.

Manchester City are running ahead to the title. Manchester United and champions Chelsea are both looking very solid and unlikely to drop many points. It will be between Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Burnley. Yes, you can seriously add the Clarets to that list. They are only two points behind us and have no European distraction.

There is no Liverpool fan who will be taking this fixture lightly. An away fixture at one of the ‘big six’ clubs is always going to be a challenge. The pressure of the big game can get to the players and hinder them from bringing their best.

However there is a number of very good reasons that Reds can be hopeful, even expectant, of a win in London. Here are five great reasons that Liverpool are going to beat Arsenal on Friday evening.
