Arsenal v Liverpool Betting Tips Explained

Arsenal have an opportunity to gain a measure of revenge when they welcome Liverpool to the Emirates Stadium on Friday night. It was back in late August that the Gunners were completely humiliated by a 4-0 defeat at Anfield, and the only positive supporters could take from that match was that the scoreline was not more convincing.

Arsene Wenger’s decision to leave out big-money summer-signing Alexandre Lacazette out of his starting XI left fans and pundits bewildered, while those that did start may as well have stayed at home as they were outplayed and outfought from the opening whistle to the last. It will go down as one of the worst results of the Wenger era, so can they dish out some a spot of revenge when Jurgen Klopp brings his side to the Emirates Stadium for their final outing before Christmas?

Liverpool head to North London having returned to winning ways with an emphatic 4-0 success at Bournemouth last weekend, and that convincing victory extended their unbeaten run in all competitions to 12 games. There have been a couple of disappointing results in that time, but Klopp and his men remain firmly in the mix for a top-four finish this season and with Manchester City running away with the title, that has to be the Reds’ most realistic aim.

And if they can carry on their excellent recent away form, they will stand an excellent chance. Liverpool have won each of their last four Premier League games away from Anfield, scoring an astonishing 16 goals and conceding just two, so they will arrive at the Emirates Stadium with plenty of confidence that they can record a positive result. History would suggest they stand a great chance too – the Reds beat Arsenal 4-3 in a thrilling opening-day game at this stadium last season and they have now gone unbeaten in their last five meetings with the Gunners.

However, I am going to side with Arsenal to get their revenge. That 4-0 result is one they should be ashamed of, but that was just another of several poor away days for Wenger’s men. At home they have been almost perfect this season, winning eight of their nine Premier League games at the Emirates Stadium with their only defeat coming against Manchester United. But even then it is hard to be too down on that loss – the Gunners produced an excellent display of attacking football and would have claimed all three points had it not been for the heroics of David De Gea.

So I am backing the Gunners to claim all three points from what is likely to be a high-scoring game – they usually are when these two teams meet. As you already know their most recent meeting produced four goals, but if you want to look back even further eight of the last nine matches between Arsenal and Liverpool have produced at least three goals. With so much attacking talent on show here, and with both sides showcasing some defensive frailties, this could turn into a goalfest.
