Since 2000, Liverpool have only kept five clean sheets at Arsenal in 27 visits in league and cup, but three have come in the last three visits.
In fact, they have kept six clean sheets in a row against Arsenal in all games, not conceding in 605 minutes since Alexandre Lacazette scored at Anfield in the league in September 2020.
They seek to keep a third successive clean sheet at Arsenal for the third time in their history – 1972-73 and 1997-2000 being the others.
A clean sheet will see them set a new club record of seven in a row against the Gunners in all competitions.
Firmino has scored nine goals in 14 league games against Arsenal, his most productive opponent.
Diogo Jota could become the first Liverpool player ever to score in five successive league games against the Gunners.
There has been only one goalless draw in the last 46 league encounters – at the Emirates in 2015.
Fifty-five goals have been scored in the last 13 league meetings with Liverpool’s share being 39.
The Reds have scored three or more in 10 of the last 13 league clashes home and away.
Progress for Kostas
Kostas Tsimikas could start a fourth consecutive game for the first time in his Liverpool career.
Jordan Henderson is in line to make his 550th career club appearance.
Joe Gomez is one game short of recording 150 for Liverpool in all games.
Jesus vs. Milner
The only man who has scored in more without being on the losing side is James Milner (54).
Michael Oliver has refereed a fixture between these teams seven times – Arsenal have never won (three draws, four defeats).
He has sent an Arsenal player off in each of their last two outings with him in charge – most recently Gabriel Martinelli, at Wolves last February, a month after red-carding Granit Xhaka in the League Cup at Anfield.
