It’s Liverpool vs Arsenal in the Premier League tomorrow, and BBC pundit Chris Sutton has revealed his prediction for the game.

The Premier League title is in Arsenal’s hands, but our run-in to the end of the season is very tricky. One of our most difficult games every season is against Liverpool at Anfield, a place where we haven’t won since 2012.

There are no margins for error this time – we simply have to win. Sutton thinks Mikel Arteta’s men will get the job done.

Why Pele Is Overrated.

BBC pundit Chris Sutton predicts Liverpool vs Arsenal result

The last time Arsenal won a game at Anfield in the Premier League, Lukas Podolski and Santi Cazorla scored their first goals for the club. Abou Diaby started in midfield alongside Mikel Arteta.

That’s how long it has been, and we can’t wait for that curse to come to an end.

Arsenal have never looked as strong as we are now ahead of a game at Liverpool over the last 10 years. We are the best team in the Premier League, and if we play at our best, we should be able to win the game.

In his column on BBC Sport, Sutton says we’ll take all three points back to the Emirates.

He wrote: Chelsea were the better team when they drew with Liverpool on Tuesday. I know the Reds made a lot of changes at Stamford Bridge, but if they were resting players before this game, I don’t think it will make much difference.

“There is not a lot wrong with their forward line but their defence is just not good enough and I am amazed Jurgen Klopp’s side kept a clean sheet against Chelsea. They won’t keep Arsenal out on Sunday, though. There is absolutely no chance of that.

“The way Arsenal are playing, I am expecting them to turn up at Anfield, play with a swagger, and cut right through Liverpool. The Gunners have not won there since September 2012, when Mikel Arteta was playing for them, and in the past, this might have been a trip they feared. Not any more. Liverpool 1-3 Arsenal.”

Predicted Arsenal XI vs Liverpool

Arsenal’s team has often been easy to guess this season, but Mikel Arteta has few dilemmas this time.

William Saliba remains an injury doubt, but many fans think he’ll play after watching the Gunners boss play some ‘mind games’ in his press conference yesterday.

The other selection decision Arteta has to make is up top. Gabriel Jesus and Leandro Trossard are both available, and they’ve both been sensational for us. We’d love to see them both play, but that’s unlikely.

Here’s our predicted Arsenal XI vs Liverpool: Ramsdale, White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko, Xhaka, Partey, Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli, Jesus
