What Trueform says for Arsenal vs Liverpool
Arsenal possess the stand-out rating on our Trueform chart from when winning 5-1 at Fulham but overall they are evenly matched with next opponents Liverpool.
That ties in nicely with the fact that these teams have drawn half of their last eight Premier League encounters, including a 3-3 stalemate at Emirates Stadium 10 months ago.
We’re happy to take 27/10 for the Gunners and the Reds to share the spoils again this weekend as our initial Arsenal vs Liverpool prediction.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Arsenal’s run of 11 straight wins in all competitions came to an end when they drew 2-2 at Crystal Palace after conceding a couple of penalties.
In between those spot-kicks, Granit Xhaka’s superb free-kick and a controversial strike from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at least earned the Gunners a point at Selhurst Park.
However, Unai Emery’s side have been starting slowly of late and defender Rob Holding admitted that has been an issue.
“We’ve come out in the second half in our past few matches and really turned on the style and scored some goals,” he said.
“We just need to start a bit faster and play how we do in the second half. That’s something to work on for the next game.”
Last Arsenal EPL line-up: Leno, Bellerin, Holding, Mustafi, Ozil, Torreira, Iwobi, Guendouzi, Xhaka, Lacazette, Aubameyang.
Arsenal are facing a defensive injury crisis, with Hector Bellerin (thigh) being assessed, alongside fellow full-backs Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac (both hamstring) plus Sokratis Papastathopoulos (ankle).
Laurent Koscielny is still not up to speed following an Achilles injury, while midfielder Matteo Guendouzi is suspended after being sent off in Wednesday’s EFL Cup win over Blackpool and Mohamed Elneny (thigh) is also missing.
A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds
Liverpool have become incredibly adept at blowing away lesser rivals with strong attacking play and followed up a 4-0 Champions League romp against Red Star by beating Cardiff 4-1 in this competition.
The Reds enjoyed 80 per cent of the possession and had 19 attempts on goal versus the Bluebirds, with Sadio Mane’s double backed up by goals from Mohamed Salah and Xherdan Shaqiri.
Jurgen Klopp has welcomed an interlude from the crowded fixture list to help prepare for this match, with an early EFL Cup exit helping on that front.
He said: “Now we have time to recover, which is the first time for a lot of the boys that they don’t play in three days again.
“Our international players haven’t had that since I don’t know when, it’s long ago.
“So we will use the time to recover and prepare for the Arsenal game, which will be another nice challenge.”
However, Liverpool have predictably been less dominant against other elite-level teams this term, drawing with Chelsea and Manchester City.
This fixture usually throws up plenty of goals, with 36 scored in the last eight encounters, so 21/2 for a 2-2 scoreline completes our Arsenal vs Liverpool betting tips.
Last Liverpool line-up: Alisson, Van Dijk, Lovren, Moreno, Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Lallana, Firmino, Mane, Salah.
Liverpool midfielders Naby Keita and Jordan Henderson will not be available after hamstring injuries but Andrew Robertson is set to return at left-back after being rested last weekend.
