Liverpool to Qualify

Arsenal vs Liverpool 20.01.2022

(This is a repost of an amended article we had previously published on 6th January when this Arsenal v Liverpool 1st leg match was initially scheduled to play but got postponed due to COVID-19)

Arsenal had no engagements at the weekend as their match against Tottenham was postponed due to yet another upsurge in COVID cases within their rank and file.

Liverpool on their part made light work of Brentford at Anfield, winning 3-0 as they try to chase runaway league leaders Man City who had on Saturday beaten Chelsea 1-0 to create massive separation with the chasing pack.

These two teams played to a surprising goalless stalemate in the first leg in Anfield last week. Although that might on paper look like an Arsenal advantage, Liverpool were quite wasteful with their chances. With Arsenal a bit short of personnel, we are backing Liverpool to make it to the next round.
