Arsenal vs Liverpool: Clash between two English Premier League's slick teams

Game plan Jurgen Klopp knows his defence must be on the money

Liverpool were cruising at two goals ahead early in the second half, and Klopp was left flabbergasted at his team's inability to pick up all three points after dominating for long spells.

Skipper Jordan Henderson had one of his best games against Bournemouth last weekend but against an Arsenal side that can create chances consistently, his defensive side of the game will be definitely tested. They have since embarked on a run of 12 matches unbeaten in all competitions and come into the game as firm favourites to claim the victory.

After throwing away another lead, Liverpool stay fourth - a point and a place above Arsenal - but the terrible defending from both sides indicated they will struggle for Champions League qualification without improvement at the back.

Liverpool have won 19 Premier League meetings with Arsenal winning 15 and 17 ending as a draw.

Speaking after the entertaining 3-3 draw, Wilshere told Sky Sports: 'We felt we didn't do ourselves justice in the first half, we played with fear; we were scared to play our natural game.

Roberto Firmino had the last say, putting the ball under Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech in the 71st.

We're disappointed not to win the game but we were much better in the second-half'.

Overall though, Liverpool have the edge against their North London counterparts, with 73 wins to Arsenal's 64.

The Reds have conceded 20 goals in 18 league games this season - only once since 2008-09 have they shipped fewer at the same stage of a campaign - 14 in 2011-12.

Hector Bellerin swung a cross to the far post and with Liverpool defender Joe Gomez losing concentration, Sanchez nipped in to head home.

The Gunners head in to the game after booking their place in the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup with a 1-0 win over West Ham in midweek but their focus will now be on breaking back in to the top four in the Premier League.
