Description

Both Liverpool and Arsenal will go into tonight's big match at Anfield boasting perfect starts to the new Premier League season. But it will be Liverpool who will be favourites to make it nine points from nine points – not least because of their recent record in games between the sides. The Reds have scored 23 goals in their last seven unbeaten matches against the Gunners – a remarkable run of form which culminated in the stunning 5-1 victory at Anfield in the final game of 2018. So will Arsenal be lambs to the slaughter once more? Or will they be a different beast after an impressive and unexpected summer spending spree which was headlined by the signing of Nicolas Pepe, who was linked with a move to Liverpool before his £72m arrival at the Emirates. To answer those questions, and many more, including the feeling in the Gunners fan base about their American owners, Paul Wheelock speaks to Tom Marshall-Bailey, who as well as being a big Gooner, can often be seen in the Echo office in his role as the publishing editor for Reach PLC Regionals. Enjoy.
