If the Premier League season ended today after just two matches, Arsenal would finish third and Liverpool fourth.

Unfortunately for Gunners supporters, they still have 36 matches to go with many, many losses to come. The first of which will be at an empty Anfield on Monday.

Here’s a Liverpool vs Arsenal matchday 3 preview.

Liverpool vs Arsenal matchday 3 preview

Before getting into the preview, let’s just remember what Mo Salah did to David Luiz last season one more time.

Ok then.

Liverpool played a better team than Arsenal (Chelsea) away last week. They were clearly the better side. Jurgen Klopp tightened up the backline by inserting Fabinho (out of necessity) in center-back. Fab has Timo Werner in his pocket all match. Virgil van Dijk dropped his arrogant/casual defending and was locked in as well.

VVD and Fabinho will need to bring their A-game to stop Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Aubs isn’t slowing down at all and is a constant threat.

Unfortunately for them, Arsenal need another 5 Aubameyangs against the Liverpools and Citys of the world.

The Gunners are certainly playing better soccer than a year ago at this time. Arsenal are creating high-quality chances (their .2xG per attempt is tops in the EPL)–they’re just not creating enough of them. Mikel Arteta has slowed down the pace and has the Gunners conceding fewer opportunities as well.

However, none of that matters.

Even with Alisson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Thiago out (as well as Jordan Henderson possibly), Liverpool have too much quality and “looks” they can give Arsenal.

That depth and formational options were on display against Lincoln City in the Carabao Cup. On the bench, the Reds have  Takumi Minamino coming on. A fit version of Xherdan Shaqiri looked fantastic last week. AND Curtis Jones is gaining confidence by the day. Trent Alexander-Arnold hasn’t had a great game yet all season. Naby Keita hasn’t had a great game yet in 3 seasons.

Point is, Klopp can shape shift given the ebbs and flows of the match. Arteta can’t match Klopp in that regard.

Plus, the match is at Anfield. You may be aware of this but Liverpool don’t lose at Anfield.

Prediction

Liverpool will paddle Arsenal 5-1. It’ll be ugly for the Gunners.
