Arsenal vs. Liverpool Match Analysis and Prediction

With barely a month since Arsenal brought their troubled 2019-20 campaign to an end with an FA Cup win, the side kick-off their 2020-21 campaign in the Community Shield against side Liverpool. The match schedules for Saturday at Wembley Stadium with kickoff at 6:30 pm.

The traditional Community Shield is back in action before the 2020-21 season campaign starts. This will see current Premier League winners Liverpool take on newly crowned and 14th time FA Cup winners Arsenal.

With the coronavirus pandemic affecting the start of the new season, the Community Shield kickstarts the new season. Both sides are yet to accomplish their pre-season friendlies with the short space.

Liverpool has been on a pre-season friendly tour in Australia. The side took on side Stuttgart ending in a 3-0 win while ending in a 2-2 draw against side Red Bull Salzburg. However, the same does not apply to their weekend opponents. The side recently scheduled a friendly match against side MK Dons ending in a 4-1 win.

Both sides have been quiet during the transfer window, majorly due to the financial implications of the pandemic. Liverpool recently announced the signing of back-up left-back Kostas Tsimikas from Olympiakos.

The Gunners recently secured the signing of veteran winger Willian from Chelsea, who is yet to feature in a Gunner’s jersey. In a recent press conference, Arteta confirmed the link of the Gunners with Lille’s sensational defender Gabriel with the deal still under wraps.
