Arsenal v Liverpool Betting Tips
There is one main element that the EPL has missed over the last few years – a genuine title race.
It finally looks as though that will change this season.
Yes, Man City are the clear favourites across the board with the bookies to lift successfully defend their Premier League title but they face a huge task to hold off the challenge of Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham.
Arsenal and Liverpool have already shown their class many times this season and they have another great chance to shine when they face off against one another at the Emirates Stadium on a cold Saturday evening in London.
Arsenal’s Unbeaten Run to Come to an End
When Unai Emery was announced as the man to replace Arsene Wenger all the talk from the pundits was of the need for the Arsenal fans to give the new manager time to get his feet under the desk.
There is much work still to be done before Arsenal can be considered genuine contenders for major honours at both a domestic and continental level. Arsenal players including Mesut Ozil were frustrated with the weekend’s draw against Crystal Palace but it will at least remind them of the amount of work still required.
Emery only has to ask Jurgen Klopp to get an idea of the scope of the work required.
Like Emery, Klopp had an instant impact when he arrived on English shores. The mood transformed at Liverpool upon Klopp’s appointment but it’s taken him three years to create a team that he believes can genuinely challenge for the title.
That Liverpool are further down the line compared to Arsenal will be obvious come the end of the season. We also believe the difference between the two teams will be clear on Saturday.
Arsenal’s recent results are impressive but their performances have been far from totally convincing. There are many areas of weakness for Emery to address and for Liverpool to exploit so we recommend betting on the away side winning at $2.10 with Palmerbet.
Goals to Flow in an Entertaining Clash Under the Lights
There is something special about a big Premier League match being played under the lights. The Emirates will be bouncing come kickoff and we fully expect both Arsenal and Liverpool to live up to provide a match that lives up to the billing.
From a betting perspective, there are few ways to profit from an exciting match between two attacking teams.
The first is to bet on both teams to score at $1.50 with bet365.
Second, take a bit of a risk by betting on there being over 3.5 goals in the game at tempting odds of $2.30 with Neds.
The last betting option to consider is on the second half having more goals than the first at $1.85 with Ladbrokes.
Arsenal have scored an incredible 75% of their Premier League goals in the second half of matches this season. We think they may have to chase the game in the second half an while we fancy the home side to score, their attacking intent will open up opportunities for Liverpool to exploit on the counter so expect an entertaining end to this match.
