The upcoming Premier League match between Liverpool and Arsenal is set to take place on April 9, 2023 at Anfield Stadium, and anticipation is high as the Gunners look to secure a win in order to hold on to the top spot of the league table as they continue their pursuit of the Premier League title. Liverpool are hoping to put their recent form behind them in the hope of boosting their morale in the run-up to the end of the season.
On October 3, the two teams faced each other in the corresponding fixture, and Arsenal won 3-2. However, since then, Arsenal has yet to win a Premier League game at Anfield in the last nine years.
The Liverpool vs Arsenal match will be available for streaming exclusively on NBC’s Peacock with options to view in both English and Spanish for viewers in the US and Canada, and will be on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League in the UK. Meanwhile, Optus Sport will broadcast the match for those in Australia, Star Sports Select 2 for those in India, and Now Premier League (Ch. 620-621) for those in Hong Kong. Astro SuperSport 3 will air the game in Malaysia and Hub Premier (Ch. 221-223) in Singapore.
Liverpool could welcome the return of both Virgil van Dijk and Thiago Alcantara from injury, while Luis Diaz is expected to make an appearance next week. Jurgen Klopp is likely to employ a 4-3-3 formation with Alisson in goal and Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, and Robertson making up the defence. In the midfield, Henderson, Fabinho, and Thiago will look to control possession, while Salah, Nunez, and Gakpo are expected to lead the attack upfront.
Arsenal will have to do without William Saliba and Takehiro Tomiyasu due to injuries, although Eddie Nketiah is expected to be fit for the game. Manager Mikel Arteta is likely to use a 4-3-3 formation, with Ramsdale in goal and White, Holding, Magalhaes, and Zinchenko as the backline. A midfield trio of Odegaard, Partey, and Xhaka should help to provide stability to the Gunners, while Saka, Jesus, and Martinelli will be the attacking threat.
The Liverpool and Arsenal squads for the match will include several options on the bench, including Kelleher, Matip, Tsimikas, Phillips, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jones, Carvalho, Jota, Firmino for Liverpool, and Turner, Kiwior, Tierney, Nelson, Vieira, Jorginho, Trossard, Nketiah, Smith Rowe for Arsenal.
Jurgen Klopp is the German head coach of Liverpool. Since his appointment in October 2015, he has led the team to multiple domestic and international titles, including the Premier League, Champions League, and Club World Cup.
In 2004, under the management of legendary French coach Arsene Wenger, Arsenal won their 13th Premier League title. This team famously went unbeaten throughout the entire league campaign and was dubbed “The Invincibles”.
