Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Liverpool will host the 21st round of the English Premier League against Premier League leader Arsenal in Anfield Road stadium. Liverpool is currently placed 8th on the table and lost disappointingly against West Ham United 2-0 in their last Premier League game. Arsenal on the other hand is in the best form of the last couple of years. Arsenal is placed first having 2 points more than Leicester City and, if the team manages to stay in the current form, might win the league this season. The clash between Jorgen Klopp and Arsene Wenger will be an interesting one between two teams that are eager to keep high amounts of ball possession and tend to play very offensively. Previous confrontations between both teams show that they are very equal to each other. We predict Arsenal to have a rough evening in Liverpool but should be able to bring the 3 points back home to London.
Highlighted Player (Jordan Henderson):
Jordan Henderson is an English football player born on the 17th of June 1990 in Sunderland. Henderson started his football career playing for Sunderland. After a loan period where he played for Coventry City Henderson got transferred to Liverpool for approximately 18 million euro.

Because of his vision Henderson got chosen as the captain of Liverpool after Steven Gerrard left the club. Henderson didn’t win any individual prizes yet but can be considered as one of the best players in his position.
In season 2011/2012 Henderson won the League Cup with Liverpool. Henderson played for over 20 games in the English national team.
Highlighted Team (Arsenal):
Arsenal are regarded as one of the best English teams. The Gunners have won 12 FA Cup trophies, 13 league titles and two League Cups, but they have yet to lift the Champions League trophy. Arsene Wenger’s team were on the verge of beating Barcelona in the Champions League final back in 2006, but they eventually failed to win the prestigious title.
Arsenal used to play their homes at Highbury, but in 2006 they moved to the Emirates Stadium. The capacity of the stadium is 60,260. The Gunners won their last Premier League trophy back in 2004, with the capital club going through the season without a single loss. The likes of Thierry Henry, Denis Bergkamp and Robert Pires were part of the team back then, but Arsenal have not won the league trophy ever since.
Arsenal was founded by Woolwich munitions workers as Dial Square back in 1886. It is well known that Tottenham Hotspur are Arsenal’s fiercest rivals and there have always been fireworks when the two local rivals meet in the North London derby.
