Betting tips Liverpool - Arsenal

Liverpool are too big to stop

At 5:30 on Saturday at Anfield, Liverpool will host Arsenal in the clash of the weekend. The home team is going from strength to strength and it looks like they might well be on the way to the Premier league title. For once, Arsenal are not in their usual Christmas time turmoil but still in recent games their performances have raised some concerns; I see Liverpool winning this one.

Liverpool

As I mentioned, this could be the season that Liverpool finally win the Premier League. This season, they have a deeper and a sharper squad. They have signed world-class goalkeeper whilst keeping their key players. The offensive trio of Salah, Mané och Firmino are still performing extremely well but now they also have strength in defence with Van Dijk shoring up the backline. They have not lost a single game in the Premier League this season, and if you think the figures look good away from home, then you'll be shocked by their home stats. I don't think I can remember a time when I saw a team average 2.44 goals scored and 0.22 conceded halfway into a season. Liverpool conceded a goal on average every five games at Anfield. Their last eight matches have ended with a goal difference of 23-2. Liverpool will have their starting XI available on Saturday.

  • League Position: 1

Arsenal

The Gunners started this season in a good mood, a new manager, good signings and an optimistic atmosphere that followed Wenger's departure. They began strong but they have now hit a rocky period again. Even though they look excellent up front with Aubameyang and Lacazette, and stronger in every position, they have struggled to pick up three points in their recent away games. Like many other teams, Arsenal are much worse away from home. Only one out of their last five away games have resulted in a win, which just isn't good enough if they want to challenge for the title. 2.33 goals scored and 1.78 conceded, so they can score away from home but they still are letting in too many. Usually it's been down to individual errors or mis-communication. The most shocking thing is that Arsenal have scored 9 more goals than their expected goals have predicted away from home. Arsenal are also going through an injury crisis, with many of their first XI in rehab. These include Bellerin, Mhiktaryan, Mustafi amd Monreal. Historically Arsenal have struggled at Anfield. This will be a real test of character for the Gunners.

Betting Tips

Everyone is expecting a home win for this match. Liverpool are better than ever before and this time they are really delivering. Arsenal on the other hand are going through a tough period, especially away from home with a big injury list and history against them at Anfield I think this will be a convincing win for Liverpool. I will bet on Liverpool to win -1.
