Arsenal get big advantage ahead of Liverpool clash


This season will not end until North London club Arsenal face the current English Premier League, Liverpool in one of the mid-week fixtures.

However, the Gunners have been handed a major advantage ahead of the clash because they will be playing a Liverpool team with reduced strength as the Jurgen Klopp side will be without Jordan Henderson.

He sustained a ligament injury in their Wednesday’s 3-1 win against Brighton and have been confirmed to be out of the season after a scan was conducted to ascertain the gravity of the injury.

Jordan Henderson will now miss Liverpool’s games against Burnley, Arsenal, Chelsea and Newcastle.

Commentators have confirmed the development as a major advantage to Arsenal because Liverpool will be turning up with a reduced strength.

However, it promises to be a big game for both sides because they both have something at stake despite having the season decided already.

For Arsenal, it is a bid to have European football with a qualification for the Europa League as the Champions League has become almost impossible while Liverpool are looking to beat the 100 points record already set by Man City.

The manager Jurgen Klopp side are just eight points away from achieving this feat.
