Arsenal desires to break the record score in the English Premier League

Liverpool has to straighten all three matches, starting with a trip to the Emirates Stadium, to reach a record 102 points in the Premier League.

Fans argue that Arsenal’s biggest success this season is … Liverpool missed the unbeaten series throughout the season. February 29 only appeared once every four years, but it was Liverpool’s tragic defeat in Watford. The result could not rob Jurgen Klopp’s English Premier League title, but it was a rift that led to their downfall in other arenas.

Of course, the Anfield club is full of hope of breaking the record score in the English Premier League. However, the club has to defeat Watford, Chelsea, and Atletico, Liverpool was no longer motivated.

Klopp’s teachers and students have won three, drawn two, and lost one of the six matches since the Premier League returned. Their performance is worse than both Man Utd and Wolverhampton, only equal to Burnley with Tottenham.

Liverpool also received a cold water drop when losing to City 0-4, in the first match since the coronation. The new champion has just won host Brighton 3-1, ending a series of five matches without scoring any goals on the away field.

Liverpool’s form gives Arsenal the confidence to win, even though the strength of the “Gunners” is not equal. The defeat at Derby North London against Tottenham led Arsenal further away from the top six.

However, Mikel Arteta’s teachers still have a chance to attend the Europa League if they win the FA Cup. Just three days after welcoming Liverpool in the Premier League, Arsenal traveled to Wembley to meet Man City in the FA Cup semi-final. Arteta thinks that the “Gunners” will be exhausted in both games.

Arteta wants his students to do their best through every match

With a density of three days a game, Arteta had to consider the contingency plans. But, putting Sead Kolasinac in the center-back position is not effective. The Bosnian & Herzegovina defender made a mistake that led to the first goal of the match against Tottenham.

Arteta also used Nicholas Pepe instead of young talent Bukayo Saka in the previous match. But in the 71 minutes on the pitch, Pepe did not create any passes for the team to finish.

The closest clash between the two teams ended with a score of 5-5, at the League Cup on October 30. With Liverpool’s poor form away from home and Arsenal’s acupuncture defense, fans can look forward to another goal party.
