The tension is building here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Liverpool prepare to take on Arsenal in what promises to be an exciting game this afternoon.
The hosts have started in pretty decent fashion securing a draw away at Watford and then beating Crystal Palace 1-0 at home, whilst the Gunners will be looking to bounce back from last week’s reverse at the hands of Stoke City.
Liverpool secured their spot in the Champions League with a win over German outfit Hoffenheim in midweek and they will be looking to continue in such high scoring fashion following the 4-2 win.
Arsenal must embrace a season playing in the Europa League next season and a win against Liverpool this afternoon would go a long way towards a suggestion that they can return to the top four during the 2017/18 season.
Ahead of the game at Anfield our regular gin and tonic drinker here in the Tavern, Lee Clarke, looks at three things to look out for in today’s game.
