By The Numbers - Arsenal

by Matthew Taylor
Hallelujah, we're finally back Reds! If you're like me, you were counting down the days, if not hours, until the International Break was over. Not only that but what a game to come back to! Liverpool vs Arsenal, two of the biggest and most historic teams in the world. Klopp's men will be looking to get back to winning ways on Saturday after the defeat against West Ham in the last Premier League game.

1 - Mo Salah is number 1 in both the top goalscorer and top assister table. Mo has ten goals and seven assists (level with Pogba).

3 - The International Break saw many Liverpool players shine for their country. Most notably so was Trent who bagged himself 3 assists in England's win over San Marino.

5 - The Reds have won their last 5 home games against Arsenal in the league. They scored at least three goals in each of those wins. Crazy stat!

6 - Liverpool did the league double over The Gunners last season while scoring 6 goals. Sadio, Robbo, Jota (x3), and Mo were on the scoresheet.

31 - LFC are still the premier league's top goalscorers, scoring 31 goals in eleven games. The most exciting team to watch? We think so!

97 - Liverpool have scored 97 goals against Arsenal in the Premier League era. Could we see the Reds hit one-hundred on the weekend? Let's hope so!

267 - The Reds lead the league in the number of crosses with 267. This statistic isn't a surprise with Trent and Robbo as full-backs.

1893 - The first official game between Liverpool and Arsenal dates back to 1893. LFC won that game five zero. Some things never change!
