One of the big Premier League highlights this Sunday as Liverpool make the trip down to London to face Arsenal, who are starting this round of games top of the table with 21 points.

In contrast Liverpool have stuttered this season in the league and are well back with just 10 points at the moment and even at this early stage of the season you feel this this is too much ground to make up with the likes of City, Spurs, Chelsea and Man Utd all ahead of them.

Therefore, this game against Arsenal is a ‘must-win’ for Klopp’s men.

The betting indicates a very tight game with Arsenal 2.50, the Draw 3.60 and Liverpool 2.62.

The good news for the Reds is that they took 6 points off Arsenal last season in the league and are also unbeaten in their last 8 vs the Gunners in all competitions.

Last year this game ended 0-2 to Liverpool and a repeat of that can be backed at 17.00.

The other plus for Liverpool is that even though they were involved in Champions League action on Tuesday, Arsenal had to play in the Europa League on Thursday night – meaning the Reds would have had 2 extra days to than the Londoners to prepare for this.

Other betting options ahead of the game are that both teams DIDN’T score in the last 6 head-to-heads, so this might appeal at 2.50, while 4 of the last 6 went UNDER 2.5 GOALS – this is on offer at 2.30

The worry for Arsenal fans, even though they look a new side this season, is that they’ve not actually scored a goal in their last 6 vs Liverpool – and not found the back of the net in the last two repeat clashes either.

You can back a Liverpool clean sheet at 4.33.

It’s also been a game with incident in recent seasons with 2 red cards in the last 3 – both Arsenal players getting sent off. You can back another player in the game to get an early bath at 5.00.

Overall, it’s a top match to look forward to this Sunday and with Liverpool needing to win to get back in the title race we should be in for an open affair. While you’d feel Arsenal would be happy to take a point and move on.

The scoring markets for Arsenal are dominated by Jesus, who has hit the ground running since his move from City – he’s 6.50 (1st) or 2.75 (anytime), while Salah for Liverpool is on offer the same prices.

With this in mind and both sides more than capable of scoring, the draw at 3.60 looks fair value to us.
