Liverpool Arsenal Betting Tips

English Premier League fixtures between Arsenal and Liverpool is known to be intense and entertaining. Although the fixture has lost some sheen over the recent past, it still is considered to be a glamorous tie in Premier League calendar. These two teams clash at the legendary Anfield Stadium on Wednesday night, 13th January.

The reverse fixture saw a goal-less draw at the Emirates which was an entertaining match nevertheless. Arsenal owe their point to Petr Cech who was in majestic form that night for the Gunners. So much has changed since that match – both on and off the pitch, and it only adds to the intrigue of this fixture.

Liverpool are currently eighth in the table with 30 points and are just six points from the fourth placed Tottenham. Jurgen Klopp would be all focused on his primary task of earning Champions League qualification. If his side can summon the form that saw them roll over Chelsea and Manchester City, the Kop faithful will be in line for another treat.

The Reds’ season has, at large, been inconsistent with their success stories blotted by an equal number of shocking defeats (against Crystal Palace, West Ham and Newcastle to name a few). On top of that, Klopp will be worried about the piling injuries with nearly 13 players jostling for a space on the physio table. With no fit centre-back to call upon, it could turn out to be a difficult puzzle for Klopp to crack.

Arsenal will also miss certain key players, though the injury front is not as cloudy and bleak as that of the hosts. The usual suspects like Santi Cazorla and Francis Coquelin are out of action but entire focus would be on the mercurial Chile forward Alexis Sanchez who is on the verge of a return to action. However, Arsene Wenger may not risk him for the Anfield trip.

Mesut Ozil is in the midst of some wonderful form, conjuring magic performances every matchday. The return to fitness of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain gives Wenger options and pace on the wings to trouble the already beleaguered Liverpool back four. Olivier Giroud seems to have rediscovered his scoring boots and should enjoy facing the injury-stricken Liverpool.

Klopp would be worried about the inconsistency of his squad as much as the mounting injuries. Will the misfiring Christian Benteke provide solace in this vital fixture? In the midst of fixture pile-up, both Klopp and Wenger know the importance of picking maximum points whenever possible. This, though, could end up being Wenger’s chance of picking the winning ball. Back Arsenal to win the game.
