Newly crowned Premier League Champions Liverpool will be looking to return to winning ways when they face off against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday.  

The Reds head into the game on the back of a 1-1 draw against Burnley and will need to win their remaining three games of the season if they want to break Manchester City’s all-time league record points tally of 100.

The Reds have been sluggish since being confirmed as Premier League champions.

Since then, they have lost against Manchester City, been made to work hard against relegation threatened Aston Villa and drawn against the Clarets.

Liverpool veteran James Milner is unlikely to be fit for the game after having to miss the game against Burnley due to a minor groin problem, according to Sky Sports.  

However, the 34-year-old could be ready in time for when the Anfield giants play against Chelsea next week.

Trent Alexander-Arnold is due to return to the starting xi after being rested for the game against Burnley either of Naby Keita or Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are set to start in midfield. 

The teams have played twice this season with Liverpool winning both times.

The EFL Cup game between the team’s in October sensationally ended in a 5-5 draw before Liverpool went on to win in sudden death of the penalty shoot-out. 

Liverpool will be hungry to break City’s points record. They will be the favourites to beat Arsenal considering that the Gunners defence tends to be vulnerable and leak goals.
