Match Betting (1x2)

Liverpool’s recent matches against Arsenal at Anfield have been highly exciting and last season’s clash really saw Jurgen Klopp’s team run riot. Despite falling an early goal behind, the Reds ended up being 4-1 up by half-time and ended up sealing the deal by landing a 5-1 scoreline.

Ladbrokes offer 1/2 about the home side claiming three points in this game although those odds could be a touch skinny considering that the Merseyside team haven’t been convincing in their three matches played thus far.

A 4-1 victory over Norwich saw a similarly fast first-half performance although then came a 2-2 draw with Chelsea in the Super Cup before a slender victory at St Mary’s where Liverpool were slightly fortunate to win.

The Gunners also boast a 100% record in the top flight thus far and you can get 11/2 that they stun the Kop by claiming a victory in the north-west, with Unai Emery’s side having won at Newcastle before beating Burnley.

Arsenal have the attacking weaponry to really cause some problems and the home side need to temper their attacking instincts to ensure they’re not vulnerable against players such as Nicolas Pepe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.

The visitors would gladly take a draw from this game and you can get 4/1 that this game ends all square which appears to represent better value than the home win, especially with Liverpool missing their first and second choice goalkeeper.

First Goalscorer

It was Roberto Firmino who scored a hat-trick in this fixture and the Brazilian was also on the scoresheet at St Mary’s last weekend when he effectively scored the winning goal against Southampton.

The former Hoffenheim forward is a 9/2 chance with William Hill to break the deadlock, although Firmino can often play the role of foil or even provider, with Mohamed Salah looking to terrorise the Gunners defence not for the first time.

Unibet have 9/2 about the Egyptian King scoring the first goal of the game, with Sadio Mane is trading at 4/1 with Ladbrokes and perhaps the Senegal star is the one to get with considering how deadly he’s looked since returning from the African Cup of Nations.

Aubameyang has been spectacular already with a goal in each game for the Gunners and the Gabon forward is a 6/1 poke with Hills, with that man Nicolas Pepe trading at 12/1.

If you fancy backing a player at a bigger price, then Trent Alexander-Arnold is available at 22/1 and he loves to bomb forward, while Andy Robertson is a 28/1 chance and he also loves to get into scoring positions.

Both Teams to Score

Last season’s two matches between Liverpool and Arsenal saw both teams find the net. Therefore, the bookmakers are trading odds-on that we see BTTS at Anfield once again, with William Hill going 4/7 that this happens and the only downside to this bet is the possibility that Jurgen Klopp’s side can be defensively solid in front of their own fans.

Liverpool were very defensively solid last term although the absence of Alisson between the sticks along with the slack nature of some of the team’s defending so far means that BTTS looks like a likely outcome.

If you think that at least one team will fail to score in this clash, then “No” is trading at 6/4 and that could include a goalless draw, Liverpool drawing a blank or Arsenal drawing a blank.

Over / Under Goals

We’ve had some crazy scorelines between Liverpool and Arsenal over the past few seasons. Last term, we saw a 5-1 scoreline occur, while it was 4-0 the season before and 3-1 twelve months earlier. Therefore, Over 3.5 Goals has been a continuing feature and bet365 go 11/10 about four or more goals being scored.

You can push the envelope further by backing Over 4.5 Goals at odds of 5/2 although it’s possible that Emery will be fully aware that his team have been dealt too many thrashings at Anfield and the experienced Spaniard might therefore come up with a game plan to nullify the opposition.

Under 3.5 Goals is an 8/11 chance with bet365 for those that are expecting a more conservative affair. However, for those who are willing to go against the grain, Under 2.5 Goals is available at 15/8 with Unibet and perhaps Arsenal will learn from previous mistakes.

Correct Score

This is a brilliant market considering that Liverpool and Arsenal tend to serve up goals, with the home side trading at 8/1 with bet365 to win by a 2-1 scoreline, although others might be a bit more adventurous with their bets and a 4-1 win for the home side is chalked up at 20/1 with bet365.

If you think we could see a zany end-to-end clash, then a 2-2 draw is trading at 16/1 and you can back a 3-3 outcome at 40/1. Arsenal are 40/1 to come away with a 3-2 win and they’ll be looking to test out a goalkeeper in Adrian who effectively gifted Southampton a goal last weekend.

Jurgen Klopp will have been annoyed with his team’s start from a defensive point-of-view and a solid 2-0 victory in favour of the home side is available at 9/1 with bet365, while a 3-0 win can be backed at 12/1.

However, our idea of the best bet is 3-1 in favour of Liverpool at 11/1, with the Reds likely to impose themselves over the ninety minutes, even if Dani Ceballos adds something new for the visitors.
