Mark Lawrenson made a huge statement ahead of Liverpool vs Arsenal match
Former Liverpool defender Mark Lawrenson, who is now a commentator, has shared his prediction for Liverpool vs Arsenal in the Premier League. 'No-one wants' the scoreline that Lawrenson predicted for this weekend's Premier League games on PaddyPower.com. To give his observations a more intimate feel, the Englishman also said that he intended to watch the match at Anfield. He said:
"I’m going to this game and I think it might be the result no-one wants, 1-1. Liverpool haven’t played particularly well but they’ve been getting outstanding results.
“The game on Sunday was a bit of a setback as far as United were in poor form but there’s so much at stake I think it’ll end level.”
Liverpool was much favourites to win their league match against Manchester United at home, but all they could manage was a goalless draw. Despite making an incredible 34 shot attempts, just eight of them were successful, which left Jurgen Klopp's squad disappointed.
Arsenal, who moved to the top of the league standings with their 2-0 victory against Brighton in their last game, will now take on Liverpool. Brighton was only able to muster one attempt on goal as Arsenal showed control. In addition, Mikel Arteta's group made history by becoming the first to stop Brighton from scoring in their previous 32 league games.
But Arsenal will have to contend with a tough trip to a stadium where they haven't won a Premier League match since 2012. This next game will have a big impact on the title race because there is just one point separating the top two clubs.
