Another big Premier League clash this Saturday as heavyweights Liverpool host Arsenal at Anfield.
Both sides have hit the ground running this term too after gaining six points each from their opening two games and with that Liverpool are now around 3.50 and Arsenal 34.00 in the Premier League outright market.
The match betting, however, sees Liverpool as short as 1.45, the draw 5.00 and Arsenal 5.75 for the away win.
So, Gunners fans will have some hope after their opening two games, but in recent years when facing Liverpool they’ve struggled.
This repeat fixture last season ended, 5-1 to the Merseysiders, while Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 8 vs Arsenal and the Londoners haven’t won in their last 6 away league games at Anfield.
We have seen two draws in the last three clashes though, so Arsenal supporters will have a bit to cling to – in fact, 50% of the last 10 head-to-heads ended all square.
We generally see goals in this game though – a massive 10 of the last 12 clashes went OVER 2.5 GOALS – a repeat of this can be backed at 1.44.
Liverpool’s Firmino has a good record when facing Arsenal too – he’s fired in 8 goals in the last 7 head-to-heads and scored a hat-trick in this clash last season. He netted last weekend for the Reds too and is a man to have on your radar if you fancy a dabble in the scoring markets.
However, with Arsenal’s decent start to the season we’ll be siding with BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE here at 1.57. Plus, Liverpool have netted 6 goals in their opening two league games so have also got their scoring boots on this season again.
This – both teams to score – outcome has paid out in 10 of the last 12 clashes – that’s an 83% return, so even at the 1.57 odds this looks fair value.
BEST BET: BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE @1.57
