Jurgen Klopp’s side has not been at their best, but have managed to procure victories – factor mattering the most.

Unai Emery, on the other side, was quoted saying that Anfield is the last place he wants to come. The Gunners have not tasted victory since 2012 in the red side of Merseyside and they have a fantastic chance to change that fate because of the outstanding business in the transfer market. They defeated Newcastle United and Burnley, but a daunting trip to Anfield awaits.

Here are the three reasons why Liverpool would be able to defeat Arsenal.
#3 Fabinho gives an edge in the midfield department
Much has been talked about the Reds defence, but the midfielders have equalled worked hard to shield the backline. Although it took time for Fabinho to settle into Klopp’s philosophy, the Brazilian has taken over the midfield department to become arguably the best defensive midfielder in the league, alongside Fernandinho and N’Golo Kante.
The 25-year-old started in the away game in the Emirates last season. Granit Xhaka and Lucas Torreira gave him money to run, with the reverse game in Anfield proving to be vice versa. Fabinho is not a neat player, who likes to make naughty tackles and stop counter-attacks of the opponents.
Not only does his defensive contributions is talked much, but his attacking contribution with supreme creativity is also pivotal for the Reds. His diagonal balls to pick out the full-backs Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson, helps them bomb forward and get involved in the attack.
The midfield three of Granit Xhaka, Lucas Torreira, and Dani Ceballos are anticipated to start the game. On the other hand, Jordan Henderson and Giorginio Wijnaldum have been tipped to secure their name in their starting lineup, with Fabinho. Unlike Unai Emery’s side, Liverpool midfield has steel because of the Brazilian’s presence.
