Liverpool v Arsenal – Premier League Betting Offers and Tips

The 20 Premier League clubs are set to further discuss a move to shut the transfer window before the season begins.

Not every club is convinced of the move but you get the feeling that Jurgen Klopp and Arsene Wenger would be in agreement. They’ve both had to deal with want-away players in the early part of this season but it looks as though Alexis Sanchez and Philippe Coutinho will now be staying put.

Now that the managers can focus fully on events on the pitch, we could be set for another cracker between Liverpool and Arsenal on Sunday.

Liverpool v Arsenal Betting Analysis

Liverpool were the only team to complete the league double over Arsenal last season. That is largely down to Arsenal’s home form as they lost each of their away games against the Premier League’s top four.

Arsenal’s away form is an area that Wenger must improve this season but his team’s lacklustre performance against Stoke on Saturday didn’t fill their fans with confidence.

The Gunners were unlucky with a few decisions to be fair and they should be able to break a Liverpool defence that is less than watertight. However, it’s the home side who we think will get the job done.

So, make sure to back Liverpool to win at $2.15 with Centrebet and both teams to score which is $1.53 with Bet365.

In recent years, this has been one of the most entertaining fixtures in the top flight of English football. The last three games between Liverpool and Arsenal have provided 17 goals on their own and we should be in for another high scoring affair.

You could back over 2.5 goals at a best price of $1.61 but we think it’s worth taking a bigger risk and taking the $2.55 that Unibet are quoting on over 3.5 goals.

Although Liverpool have had the better of things against Arsenal of late, games between these two tend to be close run things. To capitalise on another game with momentum swings throughout take the $21 that William Hill are offering on Liverpool winning 3-2.

Key Battles

Jurgen Klopp and Arsene Wenger have had their critics in recent years. Neither man has a defensive record with their teams that they are completely happy with but they do not take kindly to being reminded of that by journalists.

However, you can be sure that they are well aware of what is going on. They analyse upcoming games in great depth and will be targeting set pieces as an effective route against one another.

You may not think of Liverpool and Arsenal as teams who would work hard on dead ball situations given the number of quality creative players in both squads. It’s true that both teams will feel they’ve got what it takes to dominate possession at Anfield but dealing with balls into the box will be important on Sunday.

Another key battle will be in the midfield. Wenger has some very good central midfielders but not any that you would say are genuinely world class.

They could, therefore, struggle to cope with the high energy press employed by Liverpool. Expect a lot of turnover of possession and some lightning counter attacks from the home side.
