Arsenal vs Liverpool: Start time, team news and how to watch on TV and live stream

Premier League leaders Arsenal host Liverpool in north London later today, with The Gunners looking to continue their push for their first league title in over 18 years.

Mikel Arteta has guided Arsenal to the Premier League summit with seven wins from eight games, with the Spaniard’s young guns producing some brilliant performances along the way.

Meanwhile, it has been a tale of woe for Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp this season, who have summoned just two victories from seven league matches.

The Reds have struggled with injuries and defensive solidarity this year and results and performances have taken a major dip compared to their sensational form of recent seasons.

The Londoners will enter the match as favorites but will be weary of the threat that wounded animal Liverpool can pose to their Premier League title charge.
