Much water has passed under the bridge since Arsenal were routed 5-1 at Anfield this February and the in-form Gunners will travel to Liverpool with thoughts of revenge on their minds.
However, even amidst what has, by all accounts, been a been a trying campaign so far for Brendan Rodgers’ men they’ve been bested at home just three times.
As such it’s no surprise that the bwin layers can barely slide a cigarette paper between the adversaries, with Liverpool the slenderest of 7/4 underdogs against 33/20 favourites Arsenal, who have won five of their last six outings in all competitions – the draw is a 12/5 shot.
While the Gunners’ away form is rather less convincing when looked at in isolation, the one thing that cannot be denied is the fact they never stop attacking until the final whistle, with late goals a feature of their fixtures for much of the campaign.
The north Londoners have netted in the 88th minute or later in six of their last nine Premier League games, yet they can be backed at a hefty 16/5 to beat Liverpool in a match of the last quarter of an hour on bwin.
During the same period of time they’ve allowed just one goal to sneak past them during the last 15 minutes.
Liverpool, on the other hand, have managed a more modest four strikes between 75 minutes and full time in their last nine fixtures, allowing just as many to be scored against them.
Their propensity for waning concentration in the latter stages was further advertised in their Champions League group stage clashes against Ludogorets, where the Bulgarians netted minutes from times on both home and away.
If one man is to punish the hosts inside the final furlong then it’s the Gunners’ dynamite Chilean Alexis Sanchez.
He’s 6/1 to score last, with three of their his most recent eight goals in Arsenal regalia notched in the 90th minute.
