Where: The Emirates Stadium
On arguably the Premier League game of the weekend, Arsenal hosts Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium as the Gunners look to continue their stellar league campaign.
Mikel Arteta’s team is currently top of the Premier League table and on a hot streak of form in the English top flight. However, the Gunners need to continue their positive momentum, as reigning champions Manchester City in second place are just a point adrift of them in the fight for top spot in the league.
Arsenal has not just been in good form on home soil either, as last time out, they recorded a 3-0 home win over Bodo/Glimt in the Europa League. The victory means that the team from north London has now recorded four straight victories, having also scored at least two goals in all four wins.
When it comes to the Premier League, Arsenal has also won eight of their last nine matches in the English top flight. Their only blip this season in the English top flight was a 3-1 defeat at Manchester United in September.
Arsenal’s home form has played a key role in their stellar start to the Premier League campaign. In fact, Arteta’s team has won their previous seven home games in the English top flight, dating back to last season. They have also been highly potent in those home games, scoring at least two goals in each of their seven victories.
Jurgen Klopp’s team are enduring a poor season by the standards previously set by the Merseysiders in recent campaigns. The Reds have won just four of their ten games in all competitions this season. That record includes winning just two of their seven matches in the Premier League.
However, the visitors are unbeaten in four league matches, even if their last two games have ended in draws. The Reds have remained relatively prolific of late two, as they have scored 14 goals in their previous four league matches.
Liverpool has failed to win any of their three away games in the English top flight, picking up two draws and suffering a defeat. Their underwhelming away form has not started this season, though, as the visitors have won just six of their previous 14 away games in the Premier League.
However, Liverpool are unbeaten against Arsenal in eight games over 90 minutes in all competitions. They have also kept five straight clean sheets against the Gunners.
This is another big test of Arsenal’s durability in the Premier League title race. Another win and people will start to believe that the Gunners could mount a realistic title challenge to reigning champions Manchester City.
We think the Gunners may well find Liverpool once again, as although the Reds have not been in great form of late, they still have quality within their ranks. With that in mind, we are backing the draw. Recent games between these two teams have been low-scoring, but we think this one could produce goals, so we are backing over 2.5 goals, too.
Our Tips: We are backing the draw at odds of 13/5 and/or over 2.5 goals scored at odds of 4/7.
