Liverpool v Arsenal betting preview
Both Liverpool and Arsenal were considered viable title contenders earlier in the season but they head into Saturday night’s encounter simply desperate to cling onto hopes of getting into the Premier League’s top four.
Arsenal currently occupy the last Champions League place with this weekend’s hosts just a point behind them.
However, with Jurgen Klopp’s Reds in such poor form right now it’s the Gunners who perhaps represent the best value in this one.
The visitors are 12/5 (3.40) to take all three points with betting giants Ladbrokes.
Meanwhile, it’s currently 21/20 (2.05) for a home win and 5/2 (3.50) for the draw.
Liverpool ran out 4-3 winners at the Emirates in the pair’s opening game of the season but the Merseysiders look a shadow of the team that began the campaign in such scintillating style.
Since the turn of the year they’ve lost six of their last 12 games in all competitions, winning twice in that sequence and just once in their previous seven Premier League games.
Conceding goals has been a major problem, having kept only one top-flight clean sheet in their last seven league outings while letting in two or more goals in four of those fixtures.
Therefore, the 11/2 (6.50) available for Arsenal to net over 2.5 goals is just one of many attractive propositions.
In fact, it could pay to back plenty of net-busting action. Both Teams to Score at 8/13 (1.62) looks a banker given the fact that we’ve seen that outcome bear fruit in 21 of the pair’s last 26 meetings.
The last six Premier League clashes alone have featured 28 goals and that brings Ladbrokes’ bet of 4+ goals at 7/4 (2.75) to be scored into play as well.
Philippe Coutinho scored twice in the reverse fixture and grabbed his first goal since November against Leicester last time out. He’s 11/5 (3.20) to net anytime at Anfield with forward partner Roberto Firmino 5/1 (6.0) to score the game’s opening goal.
For the Gunners, top scorer Alexis Sanchez is 15/8 (2.88) to score anytime while a tempting 10/1 (11.0) to net two or more goals is on offer with one of best betting sites around.
