Definitely, it’s the Night of Champions, but it is also the Night of EPL outstanding games.
Amongst the many rescheduled EPL games, 2 are set to go down today.
Brighton and Hove Albion will take on Tottenham Hotspur, while Arsenal will host Liverpool in the star match of the day.
Must win games for Tottenham and Arsenal with respect to Top 4 finish.
Liverpool on the other hand also need a win to keep close to League leaders, City, in order to keep their title hope alive.
I believe you now know how important both games are, don’t you?
Let’s now proceed to the preview of today’s star game as we kickstart with the home team, Arsenal.
Top 4 Finish: A huge motivating factor for Mikel Arteta’s men.
They are currently seated in 4th position, 1 point above Manchester United, with 3 games in hand.
A win today will see the point increase to 4, giving them more hold on that spot.
You can bet they will be looking to maximize this opportunity.
Current Form: Another fact in favor of the Gunners.
Mikel Arteta’s men are unbeaten in their last 5 games, managing 4 wins and 1 draw in the process.
Pretty impressive, isn’t it?
Keeping this run intact will most likely be of huge importance in achieving their Too 4 aim as well.
Home Advantage: Not necessarily a stat, but it can’t be overlooked either.
Playing in front of the home fans should give some extra boost to Mikel Arteta’s men.
Not to forget that they are undefeated at the Emirates in their last 4 games, winning 3 and drawing 1.
Do you still feel this isn’t a fact worth mentioning in favor of the Gunners?
Ponder about the above as we now place our focus on the away team, Liverpool.
Head To Head: Our first stat in favor of Jurgen Klopp’s men
They’ve earned 4 wins and lost 1 game in the last 5 EPL games between both sides, scoring 14 goals and conceding just 4 in those games.
Let’s also add the fact that they are currently on a winning run of 3 games over the Gunners.
It will be pretty easy to assume that the Reds will be full of confidence going into today’s game.
If you were in their shoes, won’t you?
Current Form: if you think the Gunners’ current EPL form is super impressive, then you must have missed out on the Reds.
Bar their draw against Chelsea on the 2nd of this year, Jurgen Klopp’s men have won all remaining 8.
Not only have they won those 8, but they’ve also scored a whopping 21 and conceded just 3
Now, that’s what you mean by “Impressive”
EPL Title Race: Saving the biggest for last.
A win today automatically puts them 1 point behind league leaders, Manchester City.
If the above happens, then their fate in winning the League might just be in their hands considering that both teams (Liverpool and Manchester City) still have a return leg to play.
I hope you now see how important today’s win is a must for the Reds?
You can certainly bet that they will be going all out to get that win as well.
Statistically, placing your bet on Liverpool to come out victorious today won’t be a bad choice.
However, you ignoring the outstanding performance of Mikel Arteta’s men before making your decision could be very risky as well.
Well, I will be sitting on the fence on this one, preferring to enjoy the game to the fullest.
