2016-17 EPL Arsenal vs Liverpool Betting Tips

August 13, 2016 by Posted in Soccer Tips


English Premier League 2016-17 season will kick-off this weekend and the stand out game is going to be at the Emirates Stadium. Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal will host Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool on Sunday, August 14.

Arsenal generally suffer injuries late into a season but this time around they caught the bug early. Even before a ball is kicked, Wenger finds himself short of defensive options. Arsenal are looking to sign Shkodran Mustafi from Valencia but it looks highly unlikely that the German will feature in this fixture. Callum Chambers and Rob Holding should start in the heart of defense, which casts apprehensions on their ability to keep Liverpool at bay.

In a boost for the side, jack Wilshere is declared fit to start – another rarity – while Olivier Giroud and Mesut Ozil are not expected to feature having just returned from their holidays. New signing Granit Xhaka should start for the Gunners while Joel Campbell and Chuba Akpom will be vying for a slot on the wing.

Liverpool has been very active in the transfer window and Klopp has added Sadio Mane and Georginio Wijnaldum to strengthen his midfield. Simon Mignolet will take his place between the posts with summer signing Loris Karius ruled out through injury.

Daniel Sturridge is in big doubt due to his hip injury, which should mean a start for Divock Origi. The presence of Coutinho and Firminho gives a formidable look to the Klopp front-line, which will be boosted by the pace of Mane. With Mamadou Sakho doubtful to start, new signing Joel Matip could make his debut.

Arsenal had a mixed bag of friendlies but their 3-2 win over Manchester City should keep them in good spirits. But the absence of key personnel in the back four is a major worry. Liverpool on the other hand have made the maximum use of the summer break playing in nine friendlies and winning six of them. The biggest result for them was the 4-0 drubbing of Barcelona.

This tie has generally seen goals and with both sides struggling with their regular choices, there is bound to be action at both ends. This fixture has seen more stoppage goals in Premier League history. A draw could be in the offing – back them at $3.10 with William Hill.
