Are Liverpool Going to Retain Title Crown?

Strangely, Liverpool were trading at betting odds of 2/1 to win the 2020-21 Premier League title although Jurgen Klopp’s side have enjoyed a typically fast start to the campaign by winning against Leeds and Chelsea to give them first blood considering that Manchester City were yet to play.

You can still get 13/8 with BetVictor that the Reds retain their title and the acquisition of Thiago in midfield is a massive boost, with the Spaniard coming on at half-time and Stamford Bridge and slotting into midfield as though he’d been part of the squad for years.

The performance against Chelsea was defensively strong and there’s also Diogo Jota available to provide an extra attacking option, with Liverpool sure to be competing hard against Manchester City once again.

Can Arsenal Stop Getting Beaten at Anfield?

Arsenal’s recent record in this fixture is very poor, with the Gunners regularly turning up at Anfield and attempting to meet fire with fire, only for Liverpool to end up running riot. Last season, the game ended in a 3-1 triumph for the Merseyside team where Mohamed Salah ran rings around David Luiz, while the previous season was a 5-1 demolition.

Prior to that, it was 4-0 to Liverpool and Mikel Arteta will now have to work out a way of being defensively tight in this clash without actually camping in their own half and offering some kind of attacking threat themselves.

The early signs are that Arteta is doing a good job at the Emirates Stadium, with the Spaniard having secured Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to a long-term contract and the signing of Gabriel from Lille makes the centre of defence more robust.

We should also note that Arsenal have recently pulled off some masterclass performances against leading teams such as Manchester City and Chelsea in the FA Cup, although this could be a tougher ordeal for the London side.

What Do The Bookies Expect to Happen?

The bookies are making sure that Liverpool are trading short enough not for people to lump on them too hard, although the Reds are a best price 1/2 to claim three points and this will be a popular accumulator filler considering Liverpool’s excellent win rate and their recent track record in this clash.

Arsenal are as big as 11/2 with William Hill to continue their 100% record in the Premier League and that would really shake things up at the top of the table, although Arteta doesn’t have a magic wand and maybe a draw is the best that the visitors could hope for.

What Are the Best Bets for This Match?

Arteta will want his team to be defensively sound at Anfield although let’s not forget that Arsenal boast some excellent attacking players and they will draw confidence from the way in which Leeds attacked Liverpool in their opening match before narrowly losing by a 4-3 scoreline.

Aubameyang might relish the wide open spaces that become available and they were in short supply against a well-drilled West Ham team, with Willian offering some excellent ammunition and Alexandre Lacazette has scored in both of his opening matches for the Gunners.

We know all about Liverpool’s prowess in front of goal and they have six on the board already, so we’re happy to bet on the “Yes” option for the Both Teams to Score betting market, while we can further embellish this bet and add Liverpool to win + BTTS at an attractive price.

If the Reds do triumph, then it will either be keeping a clean sheet or alternatively winning with both sides scoring and we’ll take the latter option considering this is exactly what has happened in the last two renewals.
