Prediction and odds for the game: Arsenal (13/5) vs Liverpool (10/11)
We are backing the away win
When: Wednesday 16 March 2022, Kick-off 20:15
Where: The Emirates Stadium
On Wednesday night, Arsenal hosts Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium, in a massive game at the top of the Premier League table.
The Gunners head into this game with a major positive momentum after recording five straight wins in the Premier League. A 2-0 win over Leicester City last out saw Mikel Arteta’s team score at least two goals for a fourth straight game in the English top-flight.
The recent good run of league form has moved Arsenal into a promising position in the Premier League table. The Gunners are now fourth-place, a point ahead of fifth-place Manchester United with three games in hand. The team from north London could even afford to lose this clash and still be in a good position to finish in the last Champions League spot.
Arsenal have a stellar recent home record in the English top-flight, as the Gunners have now won nine of their last 12 league games at the Emirates Stadium. They have also scored at least two goals in their last three league matches on home soil.
Jurgen Klopp’s team is now breathing down the necks of reigning champions and current league leaders Manchester City. The Reds travel to north London four points behind the Citizens, with a game in hand. A win would certainly put pressure on the current champions at the top of the table.
The men from Merseyside are currently nine matches unbeaten in the Premier League, having recorded eight straight league wins. Last time out, the visitors recorded a 2-0 win a Brighton. The victory saw Liverpool keep their fifth clean sheet in six league matches, as well as score at least two goals for the third time in four Premier League games.
Liverpool are unbeaten in their last four away matches in the English top-flight, having recorded three straight league wins on their travels. The Reds have also suffered just one away defeat in their previous eight matches in the Premier League.
The team from Merseyside are seven matches unbeaten against Arsenal over 90 minutes, having won three of their last four meetings with the Gunners.
The one concern for the visitors heading into this clash is an injury doubt over star forward Mohamed Salah, who picked up an injury last time out against Brighton.
Arsenal are probably one of the few teams that could offer Liverpool any sort of challenge in the Premier League on current form. This clash is a test of the Gunners current good run of results. Unfortunately for Mikel Arteta’s team, we predict that they will fail that test and lose this game narrowly. We are backing an away win and over 2.5 goals scored in what promises to be an exciting and potentially fascinating encounter.
Our Tips: We are backing the away win at odds of 10/11 and/or over 2.5 goals scored at odds of 4/6. (All odds are taken from Bet365)[geosnippet id=3620]
