Football Liverpool120English Premier League football returns this weekend and on Saturday's coupon our focus is on Liverpool v Arsenal




Before we take a look at this match a quick update on the latest odds to win the EPL title from @Playabets who make Manchester City favourites at 0.73/1, Chelsea are 2.35/1 and Liverpool are 4.46/1 whilst Arsenal can be backed at around 73/1.




Liverpool return to action in fourth place in the standings, 4 points off the pace set by Chelsea and 1 point behind Manchester City and West Ham.


Their only defeat in the league this season came just prior to the latest international break when they went down 3-2 away to West Ham. Earlier matches against the so called elite clubs delivered draws at home to Chelsea (1-1) and Manchester City (2-2) and they thrashed Manchester United 5-0 at Old Trafford.




After losing their first 3 league matches of the season Arsenal have put together an 8 match unbeaten run comprising of 6 wins and 2 draws. That turnaround has seen them rise to fifth in the standings, now just 2 points behind Liverpool.


The Gunners most recent road trip delivered an impressive 2-0 win at Leicester, a far cry from early in the campaign when they were all at sea in losing at Brentford, at home to Chelsea and they also found themselves on the wrong end of a 5-0 hiding at Manchester City.


Recent Head to Head


Liverpool did the league double over Arsenal last season, winning 3-1 at Anfield and 3-0 in London although the Gunners did knock them out of the League Cup

with a penalty shoot out win on Merseyside.


Since 2014/15 there have been 14 league meetings and 12 have seen a total of least 3 goals scored.

The Betting


Liverpool are trading at around 9/20 to win the game with the draw at 38/10 and Arsenal can be backed at around 49/10


A game of 3 goals or more is 0.52/1 and it's 0.67/1 for both teams to score.


To score the first goal of the game Mo Salah is 32/10 and Aubameyang is an 8/1 chance

The Verdict:


The bulk of games in Arsenal's unbeaten run came against sides you would not be expecting to be in the top 6 or so at the end of the season so this will tell us plenty about their ability to mix it with the strongest teams.


Liverpool have drawn 3 of 5 home matches in the EPL including a visit from Brighton at the end of last month. That 2-2 draw was followed by the defeat at West Ham and if they were to lose again here they would slip out of the top 4.


As the odds suggest I think Liverpool will bounce back but for a bet I'm looking for Liverpool to score 2-3 goals in total, an outcome which has arrived in 4 of their 5 EPL home fixture.


Bets: Liverpool multigoals 2-3 at even money
