Liverpool hoping to continue successful run against Arsenal

Liverpool will try to continue their recent run of form on Sunday with their third consecutive Premier League victory against Arsenal -- something they have not accomplished in nearly 20 years.

That game, at Anfield, comes after Liverpool returned to the group stage of the UEFA Champions League for the first time in three years with a playoff-round victory over Hoffenheim.

Liverpool, who finished one point ahead of Arsenal in the table to claim the final Champions League qualifying spot in the Premier League, won 4-3 on opening day last year at the Emirates and followed up with a 3-1 victory at home in March.

It was the first time Arsenal lost both Premier League games to Liverpool in the same season since 1999-2000. The last time Liverpool won three consecutive league games against Arsenal was in May 1998, when they completed a run of four victories.

Liverpool have a 44 percent chance of beating Arsenal, according to FiveThirtyEight's Soccer Power Index.

While Liverpool took 20 points from their 10 games against top-six opponents last season -- more than any other club -- Arsenal lost five of their 10 games against those opponents and won just nine points.

Arsenal have lost eight of their last 13 away games in the Premier League, including a surprising 1-0 defeat at Stoke City last Saturday.

Their last victory away from home against one of the Premier League's top-six teams was on Jan. 18, 2015, when they defeated Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Still, Arsenal have earned 133 points in the Premier League since Oct. 8, 2015 -- five more than Liverpool, who named Jurgen Klopp as their manager on that day.

Should Olivier Giroud score against Liverpool on Sunday, he would become the 19th player in Arsenal history to reach 100 goals with the club. Theo Walcott was the most recent to hit that mark, doing so in February.

Liverpool's Roberto Firmino has scored three times in four Premier League games against Arsenal, while Sadio Mane has scored three goals and contributed two assists in five league games between the clubs.
