Liverpool vs Arsenal Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips
England Premier League | Anfield | 24th August 2019 17:30
Liverpool and Arsenal will put their 100% records on the line when they clash in a Premier League fixture at Anfield. Given their excellent record at home, the Reds are backed to secure the victory. Having looked off colour at the back this season, Both Teams To Score should come through.
Liverpool are coming off a 2-1 victory at Southampton last time out in the Premier League. They were made to work hard for the win. They took a two-goal lead through Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino before the Saints pulled one back late in the second half following an error from goalkeeper Adrian.
The Reds have a 100% record this season and are usually excellent at home having won 14 of their last 15 Premier League matches at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp’s men are priced at 1.45 by the bookies for a victory on Saturday but having conceded in both their matches this season, an added bet on goals should provide more value.
Arsenal were also victorious in their previous Premier League outing as they defeated Burnley 2-1 at home. Alexandre Lacazette opened the scoring early in the contest while Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang grabbed the winner in the second half after the Clarets had drawn level.
The Gunners have won their opening two matches in the Premier League, although they were poor away from home for much of last season. Unai Emery’s men are expected to struggle at Anfield and are valued at 5.00 for an unlikely win while a draw is set at odds of 5.75
Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino has an excellent record against Arsenal with eight goals from eight previous matches. The Brazil striker was on target last time out against Southampton and his combination with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah should prove too much for the Gunners.
The Reds have looked unconvincing at the back in recent weeks and are yet to keep a clean sheet this season. They are likely to struggle against Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang, who have a prolific partnership for Arsenal.
