2017-18 EPL: Liverpool vs Arsenal Betting Tips

August 25, 2017 by Posted in Soccer Tips

There is never a dull moment when Liverpool and Arsenal take on each other as games between these sides produced 17 goals in the 90th minute or later. It is very early in the 2017-18 Premier League season but this blockbuster clash will light up Anfield on Monday, August 28th.

Season so far
Liverpool started the season with a high-scoring 3-3 draw at Watford City that highlighted their defensive frailties. They did make a quick comeback though, with a 1-0 win against Crystal Palace at home last weekend and currently have four points.

Arsenal started the season with a high-scoring match of their own that they won 4-3 against Leicester City at home. They then lost 1-0 at Stoke City in a match that could easily have been a draw. The Gunners have three points in their kitty so far.

Can Liverpool continue their dominance in the ‘top six league’?
The top six mini league – a breakdown of results between the top six sides – has seen Liverpool top the mini table last season while Arsenal finished bottom.

The Gunners generally stumble in the big matches and Arsene Wenger will have a tough task to lift their morale after a reverse at Stoke.

Jurgen Klopp on the other hand saw his side move to the group stages of Champions League with a convincing win against Hoffenheim and will look to continue their winning run.


Key Stats and battles
Liverpool won both their Premier League meetings last season against Arsenal and have a chance to make it three in a row – something they haven’t done since 1998. The Reds have kept a clean sheet in each of their last three Premier League games at Anfield and will look to do it once more.

The key to Liverpool’s domination against Arsenal is the duo of Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino. Mane has three goals and two assists in five Premier League starts against Arsenal while Firmino has three goals in four games.

On current form, Liverpool will start as favourites. Combined with Klopp’s success against top six sides, Arsenal will have to be at their best to make a match out of it. Odds of $2.15 (William Hill) make the hosts favourites while Arsenal win comes at odds of $3.25 (Ladbrokes).

TIP: Liverpool to win – $2.15 at William Hill

Mane’s love for the Gunners should make him a good pick to score a goal anytime on Sunday. Back the Reds striker to find the back of the net at odds of $2.62 (Ladbrokes).

TIP: Mane to score anytime – $2.62 at Ladbrokes

Although Liverpool have kept clean sheets in three successive home games, it would be tough to keep the Gunners at bay. Back both sides to score at odds of $1.50 (bet365).

TIP: Both teams to score – $1.50 at bet365
