Arsenal have failed to beat Liverpool in their last 10 meetings and are not expected to end that hoodoo in Wednesday night’s clash.
However, the Gunners have picked up a point from three of their past four Premier League meetings at Emirates Stadium and still have lots to play for this season.
We’re going with 3/1 for another stalemate here as our initial Arsenal vs Liverpool prediction.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Arsenal’s hopes of qualifying for Europe next season suffered a major blow when they were beaten 2-1 in Sunday’s north London derby at Tottenham.
Alexandre Lacazette’s stunning 19th-minute opener was quickly cancelled out by Son Heung-min and Toby Alderweireld’s late header settled the issue.
Mikel Arteta was again left to rue some sloppy defending and said: “Points-wise, it is a massive blow, but we will keep trying until we have no hope.
“I am disappointed and frustrated and really sorry for the boys because of the way they played and showed who we are.
“If we minimise the mistakes and keep playing like that, we are going to win many, many, many football matches, because we are going to make it very difficult for opponents.”
The Gunners have made a habit of starting strongly against good teams on home turf, but do tend to struggle in big matches after the break.
Looking at the Arsenal vs Liverpool odds, we like 27/2 for Arteta’s team to be ahead at the interval but only draw at full-time.
Last Arsenal line-up: Martinez, Bellerin, Tierney, Mustafi, Luiz, Kolasinac, Ceballos, Xhaka, Lacazette, Aubameyang, Pepe.
A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds
Liverpool’s bid to break the Premier League points record stalled when they were held to a 1-1 draw by battling Burnley at Anfield.
Andy Robertson’s 34th-minute effort put the Reds in control, but inspired keeper Nick Pope kept the Clarets in contention and Jay Rodriguez levelled things up in the second period.
Jurgen Klopp commented: “It is the biggest challenge in football to play against a team which is that organised and has such an outstanding attitude like Burnley has.
“We created super chances but there was always one guy who wanted to deny us and it was Nick Pope.
“It was a draw but I cannot deny it feels like we completely lost the game.”
The Reds now need seven points from their last three games to reach the magic century mark, so we can’t see them easing off just yet, especially with no FA Cup or Champions League commitments.
Mohamed Salah has a fine record versus Arsenal, netting five times in as many Premier League matches against the Gunners.
Let’s finish off our Arsenal vs Liverpool betting tips by taking 7/2 for him to score the final goal in this game.
Last Liverpool line-up: Alisson, Van Dijk, Gomez, Robertson, Williams, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Jones, Firmino, Mane, Salah.
