Former Arsenal goalkeeper David Seaman has shared his prediction ahead of the club’s weekend game vs Liverpool.
The Gunners will on Sunday host the table toppers, with the hope of closing the five-point gap between the two clubs.
Ahead of the match, Seaman tipped Mikel Arteta’s squad to produce a “statement” performance in front of their supporters.
So far this season, Liverpool have suffered only one defeat and it was on their last trip to north London back in September, when Joel Matip’s last-minute own goal handed Tottenham a 2-1 win.
Speaking on his podcast, Seaman said: “It’s a statement game. When I look at Liverpool I just see a team that’s on form, I see a great team, I see a great squad. For us to take points off them would be massive.
“I see this as very similar to the Manchester City game, when City came to the Emirates, and it’s a chance of making a statement and making people talk a little more about Arsenal because, at the moment, all the talk is about City and Liverpool.
“We need to get back into that equation and that starts by, I was going to say getting a point… but I’m thinking three points. But it’s going to be so tough.”
