Sanchez to add to Liverpool suffering

Alexis Sanchez is one of the shining lights so far this season for Arsenal and his consistency in front of goal has seen him ranked amongst the Premier League’s leading scorers.

Sanchez heads into the game at Anfield third in the scoring charts with nine goals behind Sergio Aguero and Diego Costa and there is little to suggest he will not add to his tally against Liverpool.

With Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck also a threat up front, Arsenal appear to be back on course after a recent wobble – but the converse seems true about Liverpool.

Having to do without the likes of Luis Suarez this season will cause further envious glances from Liverpool fans towards the Arsenal line-up which boasts, in Sanchez, a player allowed to leave Barcelona to make room for former Liverpool striker Suarez.

The problems of managers Brendan Rodgers and Arsene Wenger are all relative. Rodgers could be said to have the bigger crisis on his hands as his Liverpool side have slumped to 11th in the table compared to last season when they challenged for the Premier League title all the way to the end of the season.

Having crashed out of the Champions League there are some even predicting a P45 for Rodgers along with his Christmas card from John W Henry.

Wenger, by comparison, has guided his side to the last 16 of the Champions League even if defeat at Stoke angered some of the Gunners faithful.

Successive wins over Galatasaray and Newcastle have silenced the dissenting voices for the time being.
