With half of the season gone, Jurgen Klopp just has to be pleased with how Liverpool’s season has gone.
As we enter the second half of the season, commencing with a home game against Arsenal this Saturday, Liverpool are six points clear at the top of the table, with recent results elevating Tottenham Hotspur to second, with the reigning champions, Manchester City, seven points adrift in third place.
Those first nineteen games have also seen Liverpool remain unbeaten whilst, defensively, they’ve conceded just seven goals.
This Saturday, Arsenal are the visitors to Anfield with Jurgen Klopp looking to keep the momentum going, against a Unai Emery coached side that are sitting just outside the top four, in fifth position.
Arsenal will, of course, provide stern opposition, but, in his regular feature for the BBC, the former Liverpool defender, turned TV pundit, cannot see anything other than a Liverpool win, remarking:
“Liverpool are a very good team and they are in a very good moment. That doesn’t mean they won’t have bad moments between now and the end of the season but, right now, they are extremely hard to stop.
“Can I see them scoring against Arsenal? Yes. Can I see Arsenal scoring at Anfield? No.”
Lawrenson goes on to predict a 2-0 win and that result would be just great as we prepare for the next fixture, a titanic trip to take on Manchester City, at the Etihad Stadium.
