We have a thrilling game to look forward to tonight as Arsenal play host to Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium this evening.
The Gunners come into the match in superb form having extended their winning run to five Premier League games in a row with a 2-0 victory over Leicester City at the weekend. That result means Arsenal have now won 9 of their last 11 league games so Mikel Arteta should be quietly confident of getting a result against Liverpool tonight.
The North Londoners now sit fourth in the table, one point ahead of Manchester United with three games in hand, and a positive result tonight would tighten their grip on a Champions League qualification place.
However, Arsenal face a monumental task against Liverpool as they’re arguably the most in-form team in Europe right now. The Merseysiders eased to a 2-0 win over Brighton on Saturday to also make it 9 wins from their last 11 games.
Manchester City’s surprise 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace on Monday has opened the door for Liverpool as the Reds can move to within just one point of the leaders with a win at the Emirates this evening.
This is a huge game at the Emirates between two elite sides so there will be plenty of interest in the betting markets. Bettors will use various casino sites where they can play slots ohne anmeldung, try their luck at blackjack and of course bet on the football.
Currently, Liverpool are the 9/10 favourites to win the game while Arsenal are priced at 29/10 to beat Klopp’s side on home soil. The draw is on offer at odds of 14/5 and that could temp some neutrals.
We’re expecting goals in this one as Arsenal and Liverpool are two of the most exciting attacking teams in the league, so over 2.5 match goals looks good at odds of 8/13 and both teams to score is a solid bet at 6/10.
We fancy Liverpool to edge it 2-1 and you can back that result at 13/2. If we add Sadio Mane as first goalscorer in a 2-1 Liverpool win, then the odds increase to 45/1.
Arsenal have virtually a fully-fit squad to choose from after Emile Smith Rowe made his return from illness with a late substitute appearance at the weekend. He’s now pushing for a start but Arteta is unlikely to make any changes to his attack with Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka keeping their places.
Takehiro Tomiyasu is the only fitness concern for the Gunners. The Japan international has recently returned to training after a calf injury but Arteta isn’t wanting to rush him back so Cedric Soares is expected to keep his place at right-back.
Liverpool have been handed a huge boost ahead of the game after Mohamed Salah was given the green light to train on Tuesday. The league’s top scorer picked up an ankle injury at the weekend but has made a swift recovery and should start once again this evening.
Ibrahima Konate is also back in contention after overcoming a minor knock but James Milner and Kostas Tsimikas miss the trip to London due to illness.
Arsenal 1-2 Liverpool: The Gunners are in a fine run of form and should give Liverpool a stern test tonight. Arteta’s young squad is playing some lovely football and will be hoping to show they can compete with the big-boys.
However, Liverpool are a formidable outfit and they’ll be desperate to close the gap on City with a win. It should be a close game but we’re backing the visitors to edge it 2-1 this evening.
