The Reds will welcome their top-five rivals to Merseyside in the final round of Premier League fixtures in 2018 as Liverpool FC look to maintain their unbeaten start to the season.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have the best defensive record in the Premier League after Alisson Becker, Virgil van Dijk and company conceded a mere seven times in 19 games.
Liverpool FC have won their last six Premier League games to build substantial momentum in the title race and move seven points clear of defending champions Manchester City.
The Reds are just the fourth Premier League team to reach the halfway mark without losing a game, following in the footsteps of Arsenal in 2003-04, Manchester United in 2010-11 and Manchester City in 2017-18.
Klopp’s side are unbeaten in their last 30 Premier League games at Anfield to underline the size of the task that is facing Unai Emery’s men.
Former Liverpool FC defender Lawrenson has explained why he can’t envisage anything other than a Reds win against Arsenal at Anfield on Saturday evening.
“I just cannot see past a Liverpool win here, and this is why,” Lawrenson told BBC Sport.
“They are playing very well at the moment so I would assume they will have more of the ball than Arsenal will – and I also expect the Reds to make the most of it.
“Whoever the Gunners play, they seem to create chances against them – and, whoever Liverpool play, they do not seem to have problems creating lots of chances for themselves.
“So, they are going to get openings here and that still stands even if Liverpool are not at their best on the day.”
Lawrenson has backed Liverpool FC to keep another clean sheet against Arsenal in their final league fixture of 2018.
“With only seven goals conceded in their 19 league games, Liverpool’s defensive record is very strong too,” Lawrenson added.
“I think people forget how hard every single Liverpool player works without the ball, which is a massive part of their success.
“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.”
Liverpool FC were 4-0 winners against Arsenal in their last meeting at Anfield back in August 2017 thanks to goals from Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Daniel Sturridge.
