Liverpool Has Edge To Win at Home on SaturdayPublished on March 2nd, 2017 3:40 pm EST
One of this week's most intriguing English Premier League games will see Liverpool play host to Arsenal. Both teams have been struggling as of late, and both teams desperately want to notch a victory on Saturday.
The situation at the top of the English Premier League is very complex and interesting right now. Chelsea has virtually cemented another title for themselves, while Tottenham, Man City, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United continue to battle tooth-and-nail for one of the remaining Champions League spots. As of this moment, just five points separate second place Tottenham from 6th place Man Utd. It should be noted, however, that Man City, Arsenal and Manchester United have all played one less game than Chelsea, Tottenham and Liverpool. For this reason, Liverpool must avoid a home loss on Saturday or they run the risk of falling out of the race.
As of this moment, Arsenal has a record of 15-5-5 (50 points), while Liverpool is sitting at 14-7-5 (49 points).
Arsenal has only won 1 of their last three games, while Liverpool only has one outright victory in their last seven EPL matches.
Liverpool is one of the English Premier League's top teams at home, as they have managed a total of 27 points over 12 home games. Arsenal, however, has been very good on the road, notching 21 points over 12 games.
