Monday mornings blockbuster EPL 2017 match is between Liverpool and the Gunners. This is shaping up to be a massive clash with both teams having an average start to the season.
When: Monday, August 28, 1am (AEST),
Where: Anfield, Liverpool
To be totally honest, I don’t know what to expect from this match which might make it very special.
Arsenal and Liverpool haven’t shown anybody this season their inconsistencies are a thing of the past.
They’ll play some exciting stuff throughout the season but I have no doubt supporters and the managers will get a few more grey hairs.
If they can’t reach a consistent level, they won’t be winning and the title won’t be within reach.
Sadio Mane has shown when he is onsong, he’s a real livewire.
He has goals and something different and will be looking at taking his game to a new level.
The interesting thing with these players that have shown their quality over a couple of seasons is can they turn it to a situation where we talk about them every week?
Are they contributing and involved in their team’s big moments week to week?
These type of guys become players of real interest and with such high standards set by the likes of Messi, Neymar and Ronaldo, the guidelines are pretty clear to be world class.
The challenge is there for many and even if they don’t get there, the journey is exciting for us all to follow.
#WengerOut trending on social media is pretty boring really.
The man is Arsenal and the players are the ones that need to change things.
You dominate the game in the manner they did and still lose the game, that is certainly not a Wenger issue but a player’s mindset.
You must win games you dominate or you don’t stand a chance.
Wenger has a good squad with some great young talent. The players are the ones who need to stand up and be counted now though.
KEY BATTLE: Jordan Henderson v Aaron Ramsey
Midfield tussle and the question is whether the range and control of Henderson can overshadow the willingness of Ramsay and his forward runs.
Ramsay can ask more questions in front of goal and his desire to get into goal scoring positions and create for his teammates will have him shading this one in my opinion.
I have a sneaky feeling that Arsenal will put a game together that will be impressive and good enough to win this at Anfield.
They’ll be presented chances and it’s important they defend well.
That could be the trend and the result will be in favor of Arsenal.
Liverpool at $2.15
Draw at $3.50

Tip: Arsenal at $3.35
