English Premier League: Arsenal vs Liverpool Preview

Alexis SanchezEnglish Premier League round three will witness a block buster match between Arsenal and Liverpool and we will be taking a look at the match in our soccer betting tips article. This Monday night (24th August) will witness Arsenal welcome Liverpool to their Emirates stadium. Though it is quite early in the season to have such a marquee clash, no one is complaining.

Arsenal will take comfort from the statistic that they lost only one of their last seven Premier League games against Liverpool. Though they were lucky to come out with full points against Crystal Palace, Arsene Wenger would be happy to get back on track after the opening game loss to West Ham United.

The midfield still doesn’t exude confidence for Wenger but he will be happy to see the return of talisman Alexis Sanchez. The question of ‘leading the line’ still hangs around Olivier Giroud who will be playing his 100th Premier League match. Mesut Ozil has to answer the doubts on his consistency.

Liverpool looks a completely different side this season and started off well with two narrow victories. They have their stars to thank for the win against Bournemouth. The Kop manager Brendan Rodgers will be satisfied with the defence having allowed their opponents only three shots on target so far this season.

The visitors will be wary of Sanchez but the form of Philippe Coutinho should be a worry for the hosts. The Brazilian is a livewire and has already shown glimpses of what he can do for Liverpool. His forward propulsion combined with the striking prowess of Christian Benteke should be a handful for the Gunners.

The Emirates stadium has some bad memories for Liverpool with their recent game last season ending in a 4-1 loss. Their form so far this season is bright but this game will be their first tough test. Wenger will be eager to develop on the victory at Selhurst Park.

The Gunners take pride in their home record, and odds of $1.73 offered by Sportsbet on Arsenal win suggest as much. Sanchez is primed to be anytime goal scorer at odds of $2.40 at Sportsbet, while an interesting bet is the odds of $1.67 offered by Sportsbet for both teams to score.
