One of the seasons highlights for Premier League football fans this Saturday for the early evening game as Liverpool welcome Arsenal to Anfield.

Both sides have started the season well and as we head into this week 12, Liverpool sit on 22 points and Arsenal are just behind them on 20 points.

Last season’s repeat fixture ended Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal and the Merseysiders took 6 points off the Londoners last term too.

Liverpool are also unbeaten in 14 of their 15 games against Arsenal and haven’t lost in the last 8 repeat fixtures.

The match betting reflects this, especially with Liverpool being at home as Klopp’s men are just 1.40 in the match betting, with the draw 5.00 and Arsenal 6.50.

Having said that, it’s worth pointing out that we’ve seen 3 draws in the last 6 head-to-heads in all competitions and 8 stalemates in the last 17 clashes.

This is generally a fixture that produces goals too – 15 of the last 19 head-to-heads have seen both teams score. This can be backed at 1.66. While 15 of the last 19 meetings have produced Over 2.5 Goals – you can support this happening again at 1.50. This is also backed up with the last 8 repeat fixtures seeing 3+ goals scored.

Looking at the scoring markets, Arsenal’s Aubameyang is on offer at 8.00 (1st) or 2.87 (anytime) and is their shortest-priced player in these markets, with Lacazette at 9.50 (1st) or 3.25 (anytime). Their Smith-Rowe, who recently got an England call-up, has been in decent scoring form too and is 19.00 (1st) or 6.00 (anytime).

Liverpool’s Jota has scored 3 goals in his last 2 against Arsenal and is on offer at 6.00 (1st) or 2.25 (anytime), while is goes without saying Mo Salah will be popular as always at 3.75 (1st) or 1.61 (anytime).

Overall, it’s a game that Liverpool will be expecting to win and with their recent good record against Arsenal, then this should be the case. However, Arsenal are not playing badly at the moment and are sure to make life hard for the home side.

Therefore, the safer call is to side with their being goals again here and back OVER 2.5 GOALS at 1.50 – if you’re feeling brave then add another goal (Over 3.5 Goals) at 2.20.
