Arsenal v Liverpool Betting Offers and Tips
It’s been an up and down season for Arsenal so far. Arsene Wenger’s team have had reasons to be cheerful with the derby victory over Tottenham and some big wins at the Emirates but they’ve let themselves down on far too many other occasions.
Liverpool have similarly been up and down at times but there’s little doubt that their fans are the happier of the two.
Jurgen Klopp’s side showed their attacking prowess once again last weekend. The Reds tore Bournemouth to pieces at the Vitality Stadium to take them to 38 league goals and give them confidence ahead of their Friday night trip to North London.
Repeat Result Even If Arsenal are More Competitive at Home
Arsenal’s 4-0 defeat at Anfield is perhaps the lowest point of the Gunners’ season so far.
It was a horrible afternoon for Arsene Wenger who was criticised for his team selection before the match, for his tactics during it and his inability to motivate his players after it.
Although Arsenal have not been as poor since, they’ve still lost another four matches to leave them outside of the top four with almost half the season gone. Those who hold the club close to their heart believe Wenger won’t survive another failure to qualify for the Champions League so the Frenchman must hope for his sake that performances improve.
We think Arsenal will be much more competitive against Liverpool at the Emirates than they were at Anfield but would not be surprised to see Jurgen Klopp’s team pick up three points again.
Liverpool have won each of their last three games against Arsenal and have lost just once to their fellow top six Premier League sides this season. They’re on fire going forwards and have tightened up at the back so we recommend betting on Liverpool to beat Arsenal at $3.20 with Palmerbet.
If Liverpool are to win at the Emirates they’ll surely have to score more than once. Yes, Arsenal have had problems in attack recently with just three goals from their last four league matches but their forwards are too good to stay quiet for much longer.
Both sides will look to take the game to their opponents which should provide an entertaining game under the lights at the Emirates.
When it comes to profiting from the entertainment, the first bet to place is on both teams to score at $1.40 with Crownbet.
Second, take a slightly bigger risk by betting on over 3.5 goals which is $2.35 with Unibet.
In terms of the outcome of the game, if you agree with us that Arsenal will push Liverpool all the way, a bet on the away team winning by one goal is very tempting at $4.50 with Sportsbet.
Firmino to Secure a Fast Start for Liverpool
Mohamed Salah and Philippe Coutinho have rightly been winning praise from all quarters for their performances of late but don’t forget about Roberto Firmino.
The Brazilian forward has already scored more goals than in any of his previous seasons at Liverpool and the campaign isn’t even halfway through.
Firmino is gratefully taking the chances created for him by his talented teammates but is also able to fashion opportunities for himself so he looks the best bet to score first at the Emirates at $7.00 with William Hill.
