Liverpool vs Arsenal

Probable starting eleven: Liverpool: Mignolet, Flanagan, Skrtel, Toure, Cissokho, Coutinho, Gerrard, Henderson, Sterling, Suarez, Sturridge Arsenal: Szczseny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Arteta, Cazorla, Ozil, Podolski, Giroud I expect a draw at Anfield. Simply, I don’t see a winner here. Liverpool can’t win as the manager Brandon Rodgers is facing a defensive crisis. The right back Glen Johnson is out injured, as well as the left back Jose Enrique. Only their absence is a big handicap for Rodgers, but there is more. The central defenders Mamadou Sakho and Daniel Agger are also sidelined. The replacements are questionable. Flanagan is too young, Cissokho has lost the confidence and played very poor. Kolo Toure made a big mistake against West Bromwich Albion last Sunday and he is the reason why Liverpool dropped two points. I believe his confidence is low at the moment. Liverpool have conceded six goals on the last four matches – one from WBA, two from Aston Villa at Anfield and three from Stoke at Britannia Stadium. In situation like this it is clear Liverpool can’t win. There are too many holes in the defense. Now about Arsenal. They are playing a good season and the are on the top of the table. However, Wenger’s boys have a problem to win against top teams, particularly on road. Arsenal were heavily defeated by Manchester City, they lost 3:5 at Etihad. Arsenal were also defeated by Manchester United at Old Trafford. In addition, Arsenal played just a goalless draw with Chelsea at home. The only reason why Arsenal are on the top is because they are winning against smaller teams. By the way, Wenger also has some problems with injuries and suspensions. Jack Wilshere, who missed a few matches with an ankle injury, is rated as doubtful for this match. Matthieu Flamini is still under suspension, while Aaron Ramsey, Kim Kallstrom, Thomas Vermaelen and Yaya Sanogo are not fit. Finally, the midfielder Abou Diaby and the striker Theo Walcott are long-term absentees with knee injuries. I think that both managers, Brandon Rodgers and Arsene Wenger, will be satisfied with one point from this match.
