2016-17 EPL: Liverpool vs Arsenal Betting Tips

March 3, 2017 by Posted in Soccer Tips

It will be a test of top four credentials at Anfield on Saturday, March 4th as Liverpool take on Arsenal in an English Premier League encounter. With just five points separating teams from second to sixth, any slip-up will be too costly both the sides.

Season so far
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool started the season with a bang only for the turn of the year proving fatal to their title hopes. The inconsistent form has seen them slip from being title challengers to being on the cusp of missing out on top four. The Reds have 49 points from 26 matches and are currently fifth on the Premier League table.

Just like every season, Arsenal started with high hopes of competing for the Premier League title. And just like every season, their hopes are already over – barring a miracle of sorts. In fact, the Gunners are under real danger of missing out on Champions League qualification. They currently have 50 points from 25 matches and are just two points ahead of sixth place United.


A clash of two inconsistent sides
Arsene Wenger is grappling with so many injury issues apart from questions hovering on his long term career as Gunners’ coach. Santi Cazorla is ruled out for the rest of the season while Aaron Ramsey and Mohamed Elneny are injury doubts for the match.

Wenger will welcome Mesut Ozil back while defender Laurent Koscielny should start after getting injured against Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

For Klopp, the biggest loss will be that of influential captain Jordan Henderson who also missed the trip to Leicester City. Daniel Sturridge too missed the earlier match against the Foxes but should be fit again and could feature in some capacity in this encounter.

Liverpool may have been in doldrums in recent times in the Premier League but has a good record against top clubs at home with wins against Tottenham and Manchester City. They are also unbeaten in their last three home Premier League games against Arsenal. Back the Reds at odds of $2.10 (bet365) to come out with a win.

Olivier Giroud may not be the first choice striker for Wenger but he has a great record against Liverpool having scored five goals in his last seven appearances against them. Back him to find the net any time of the match at odds of $2.75 (bet365)
With such fragile back line, both teams look vulnerable to conceding goals. Back both sides to score at odds of $1.62 (bet365)

TIP: Both sides to score – $1.62 at bet365
