The Reds have the upper hand in the head-to-head, with 24 wins to Arsenal's 16, from their 59 encounters in the Premier League. However, it is an advantage to Arsenal in the matches in London, with ten wins to Liverpool’s eight here.
Liverpool have already beaten Arsenal twice this season, including a 0-2 win here back in January in the League Cup Semi-Final second leg. Their 0-3 win here in April 2021 means they come here having won back to back games in London against the Gunners.
Therefore, 101 Great Goals' prediction for this match is Arsenal 1 - 2 Liverpool and is available at odds of 9/1.

Arsenal welcomes Liverpool to the Emirates Stadium in London on Wednesday for this Premier League match. Liverpool come into the match chasing back to back league doubles over the Gunners having already beaten them 4-0 at Anfield this season.
It is a fixture the Liverpool forwards must circle on the calendar each season considering the impressive scoring records they have in this head to head. Since signing for the club, Roberto Firmino has eight goals while Sadio Mané and Mohamed Salah have seven apiece.
Diogo Jota (pictured above) has scored in every league appearance against Arsenal since signing for Liverpool and has an impressive record of four goals in just 115 minutes against them. He was also the man of the match back in January in the League Cup, scoring both goals here in their 0-2 win.
He is both Liverpool’s and the Premier League’s second-highest scorer this season with twelve goals and is 2.05/1 to to his three goals against Arsenal already this season on Wednesday evening.
The one to watch from Arsenal’s point of view could be Thomas Partey (pictured below). The Ghanian became the subject of internet memes when he rushed home from the African Cup of Nations after Ghana’s elimination, only to be introduced as a sub against Liverpool the day he returned and get a red card less than 15 minutes later.
The midfielder penned an open letter to the Arsenal fans after the match. Given his performances since then, it is safe to assume the Gunners will have quickly forgiven him. All five of his appearances since the defeat against Liverpool have ended in Arsenal victories.
The latest of which, a 2-0 win over Leicester at the weekend, was arguably his best match of the bunch. Even more so considering his winning goal in the match; his first goal for the club since October.
Another goal here for Partey would be the perfect way to close that chapter by scoring against the team he received that red card against. Partey is 12/1 to score against Liverpool on Wednesday.
Arsenal team news
Takehiro Tomiyasu is the only player ruled out of Wednesday’s match here. The defender has been struggling with a calf injury and hasn’t featured for the Gunners since the 0-2 defeat at the hands of Liverpool back in January.
Arsenal arguably had their best XI on the pitch for the 2-0 win here over Leicester on Sunday. It is likely we see the same XI start the match here. Emile Smith Rowe returning to the starting lineup in place of Gabriel Martinelli will likely be Mikel Arteta’s biggest decision. However, after seeing the problems Martinelli caused Liverpool in the past and Klopp’s comments, Arteta will be reluctant to bench the dangerous young Brazilian who is 3.6/1 to score here.
"Martinelli by the way... everybody should remember that name. Outstanding player." - Jurgen Klopp, January 2022.
Liverpool team news
With three full days of rest between their early Saturday kick-off and the late kick-off on Wednesday, the Liverpool players should be well-rested and the only changes here will likely be those forced on them. Their next match being against Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup at the weekend also means they can go full strength here knowing they can rest some key players in that match.
The big concern will be the fitness of Mohamed Salah. He is a player that rarely stays down and needs treatment on the pitch so to see him sitting down before being subbed off suggests he had a problem. Jordan Henderson was pointing to the bench the outside of Mo’s knee but Klopp suggested in the press conference it is more an ankle or foot problem after it got slightly overstretched for a shot. He is therefore a major doubt for this game with Diogo Jota or Roberto Firmino (above) the most likely players to replace him.
Ibrahima Konate missed the trip to Brighton with a knock. He likely misses out on the squad here also with Joe Gomez on the bench. Naby Keita was also seen icing a lump on his head on the bench after catching a high boot from Yves Bissouma against Brighton. It is unlikely to keep him out here though.
