Arsenal v Liverpool, live!  Score, updates, stream link, how to watch

Arsenal vs Liverpool is a huge game for both teams at Emirates Stadium on Wednesday (watch live, 4.15pm ET on Peacock Premium) as the Premier League giants are in top form.


The Gunners have won five in a row to move into fourth place and Mikel Arteta’s side are brimming with confidence ahead of this massive clash. Arsenal youngsters have stepped up in recent weeks with Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli and Emile Smith Rowe all scoring important goals. Alexandre Lacazette’s leadership in attack has also been crucial, but it’s Arsenal’s newfound defensive solidity that is key to their impressive consistency. Gabriel and Ben White have been solid in central defense (Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey have also been excellent in front of them) while Aaron Ramsdale has been sensational in goal, with Arsenal conceding just four goals in their last six games. If they can finish the season strong and finish in fourth place to seal a Champions League return for the first time since the 2016-17 season, that would be quite an achievement for Arteta. They have lost just once at home this season (against Man City) and have won nine of their last 11 games to propel them to fourth.

As for Liverpool, well, Jurgen Klopp’s side are on fire and have won eight consecutive Premier League games and lost just one of their last 17 games. If they win at Arsenal on Wednesday, they can close the gap with Premier League leaders Manchester City to just one point. That would be huge ahead of their massive clash against City at the Etihad in early April. Luis Diaz has given them a real boost in attack, while Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane continue to lead the charge with Alisson, Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk imperious at the back. Liverpool know they have momentum and with Man City stumbling a bit, this is a huge opportunity to put even more pressure on Pep Guardiola’s side. They have also lost only once in their last 18 meetings against Arsenal in all competitions (beat them in the League Cup semi-finals this season and won 4-0 at home in PL in November ), so they have the psychological advantage over the Gunners. moving towards this tone.
