Fans don’t get much insight into teams’ true playing styles over the course of a match. With data measuring various styles, there’s plenty more detail to see.
Ahead of tonight’s Premier League clash between Liverpool and Arsenal, Stats Perform preview how these two sides might shape up and approach the biggest game of their campaigns so far.
Arsenal’s 2-1 victory over Liverpool back in July was their first win over the Reds in 10 Premier League games (D4 L5). The Gunners are looking to win back-to-back league games against them for the first time since September 2012.
Liverpool will look to continue their home dominance against Arsenal. They’ve won their last four home league games against Arsenal – they’ve not won more consecutively against the Gunners at Anfield since a run of seven between 1981-1988.
With two recent wins over Liverpool, has Mikel Arteta found a way to consistently thwart the Reds? Host Duncan Alexander is joined by Tom Reynolds, Ben Mackriell and Kevin Chroust as they try to answer that very question.
