Portsmouth vs Arsenal: Live Score and Live Updates

Liverpool will take on Portsmouth in their upcoming premier league match on 22 December 2007. The match will be held at the Anfield stadium of Liverpool. So, it is a big chance for Liverpool to bounce back in the premier league after their recent defeat to Manchester United by 1-0 at their home ground. On the other hand, Portsmouth has also experienced a 1-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur this week. So, it seems that both the teams will try to come back in the competition winning the match. Interestingly, both Liverpool and Portsmouth have achieved 30 points in English premier league this season so far. However, Liverpool has played a match less.

To tell the truth, Liverpool is a balanced side and they have some talented footballers who have the ability to win over any team in their days. However, those days hardly come for LiverpoolLiverpool has been inconsistent this season in terms of performance. They now stand fifth in the league table with 30 points from 16 matches. It is obvious that it does not go with the class of Liverpool and they have the quality to bring out something more in English premier league. now-a-days.

There was a big chance for Liverpool to come back in the competition in style this week. However, they lost the chance being defeated by Manchester United. This was the second consecutive premier league defeat for Liverpool as they had lost their last week match against Reading as well. So, you need not to be a specialist to understand the current performance of Liverpool. If this is the one side of the coin then the other side of the coin is that they have recently defeated Olympique Marseille by 4-0 in their crucial Champions league match and thus confirmed their place in the knock out stage. So, it shows how much inconsistent their performance of this season is.

For Portsmouth, they have nothing to lose. Though they have lost to Tottenham Hotspur this week, their overall performance this season is not disappointing at all. They have got 30 points in 17 matches so far this season. If this statistics is not enough to impress you then let me inform you that they were promoted to FA Premier League in 2003. So, it is obviously an impressive performance from Portsmouth. They have been improving gradually since their joining premier league. Last season, they finished 9th in the league table. Now, they stand 7th in this season and they must be inspired enough to record their ever best perform in English premier league in 2007-2008 season. So, Portsmouth is expected to come up with inspirational football against Liverpool as I said earlier that they hardly have anything to lose at this situation. Rather, they have the stage set to win everything in this season.

Liverpool will obviously play all out against Portsmouth in order to clinch a superb victory over Portsmouth at their home ground before their supporters. However, remembering the fact that Portsmouth has lost only three matches so far this season. It indicates their unity as a team and their strength in the defense. When the whole teams shows sheer determination and confidence, it becomes harder for the high profile teams to claim the three points.

Liverpool has some quality players in each of the departments. However, Steven Gerrard has an injury problem and that is why he will miss Carling Cup quarter final match against Chelsea. However, it is not sure yet if he will be fit before Liverpool takes on Portsmouth next Saturday. The good news for Liverpool is that midfielder Xabi Alonso is expected to be fit enough to take part in the match against Portsmouth. However, defender Daniel Agger is yet to be fit to participate in the match.

On the other hand, Portsmouth does not have any injury problem ahead of the match against Liverpool. Midfielder Papa Bouba Diop and Sulley Muntari are now in good form at this moment. Among the forwards Nwankwo Kanu and John Utaka have earlier proven their worth and are main strength of the side. However, to me, the main strength of Portsmouth is their defense. Defenders Sol Campbell and Sylvain Distin have been playing excellent this season. So, Liverpool strikers will face strong challenge from Portsmouth defenders.
