Former Manchester United and Manchester City midfielder Owen Hargreaves said on the Matchday Live with Fletch & Sav show on BT Sport 1 on Saturday morning that Arsenal will win against Liverpool with ease.

Arsenal will host Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League on Monday night.

Hargreaves believes that all the Gunners need to do to pick up the three points in North London is stop Reds attacking midfielder Philippe Coutinho.

“Arsenal all day,” Hargreaves said on the Matchday Live with Fletch & Sav show on BT Sport 1 on Saturday morning when asked who will win Monday’s game. “They have just got to stop Coutinho and they will win.”

Key player for Liverpool

Coutinho is one of the best players in the current Liverpool squad and will be a key threat to the Arsenal defence.

The Brazil international is a very skilful and creative player, and the Gunners will have to give him special attention.

The former Inter Milan attacker has scored one goal and created one chance in two Premier League appearances so far this season.

Coutinho has a pass accuracy of 73% and a shot accuracy of 20%, and has won one header and four dribbles.
