Arsenal and Liverpool both want to win in the Premier League match , because three points means a lot to them.
An exciting duel was presented in the postponed match of the 27th Premier League between Arsenal vs Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium, on Thursday (17/03/22)
Both teams have won because the addition of three points means a lot to their current position in the Premier League standings.
Arsenal is currently in 4th position with 51 points. Next season’s Champions League ticket is still not safe because it is prone to being displaced by its closest competitor Manchester United.
Manchester United is in 5th place with 50 points from 29 matches. But Arsenal have the opportunity to widen the gap, because they have three games postponed.
In addition Arsenal also have valuable capital to be able to win when dealing with Liverpool .
They just won 2-0 over Leicester City in the Premier League match on Monday (14/03/22) yesterday.
These results continue Arsenal’s winning streak in the Premier League. They swept three points in the last five games.
Meanwhile, from the visitors’ camp, Liverpool, also open a team that carelessly can beat just like that.
The Reds are currently struggling to keep Manchester City tight at the top of the standings with 69 points. While Liverpool below it with 66 points.
An additional three points if they are able to win against Arsenal later, will make Manchester City continue to be depressed because they have the same points.
Liverpool also has a slick record when they meet Arsenal. They have never lost in the last four duels with details of three wins and one draw.
Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, understands the quality that Liverpool has. Therefore, he thinks his team must improve the level of play better than against Leicester City.
“It’s on a different level now. We have to take the game to a new standard to have any chance of beating them,” said Arteta.
“We know that and will prepare tomorrow how to beat them. We have to be able to believe that we can beat them,” said Arteta quoted from the Liverpool Echo.

Player to Watch
Alexandre Lacazette – Arsenal
Alexandre Lacazette will be Mikel Arteta’s first option following the departure of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Barcelona last winter.
So far it has been a success. This is evidenced by the frequent scoring in the last few games with Arsenal.
It is not impossible that this French player will return to be the scourge of the next opponent’s defense.
Mohamed Salah – Liverpool
In the Liverpool camp, they also have a dangerous player in Mohamed Salah.
The Egyptian striker has just scored in Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Brighton. Arsenal’s defense must be wary of Mohamed Salah.
