#2 Pace of the centre-backs
Liverpool’s high-line approach is a risk, but the scary part can be negated owing down to the pace of Liverpool’s centre-backs. Of the four centre-backs, only Dejan Lovren is the slowest, with Virgil Van Dijk, Joel Matip, and Joe Gomez having the lightning pace to catch up the opponent strikers.
The Croat is unlikely to start, and the partner of the former Southampton defender will be the conundrum for Jurgen Klopp. Joel Matip or Joe Gomez will start as right centre-backs until and unless a dramatic sequence pops up.
As for the Gunners, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Nicolas Pepe are anticipated to start in the forward line, along with Joe Willock or Reiss Nelson. Unai Emery has rarely started Alexander Lacazette in a top fixture away from home.
The Gabonese and Ivorian have an abundance of pace, so does Liverpool’s centre-backs. The Spaniard will be passing instructions to the forwards to run behind the defenders, but the Reds defenders can catch up their opponents.
