Arsenal v Liverpool Betting Tips: Match Preview
Arsène Wenger slipped up badly after his side began the Premier League season with a 2-0 home loss to London rivals West Ham. The Gunners, of course, won the Charity Shield against Chelsea in their prior game, which could be to blame for bloating the players’ confidence. Losing those three points could come back to haunt them, but it also could serve to humble them for the season ahead.
Arsenal stayed in London for their away encounter with Crystal Palace, and were certainly more effective in holding 59% possession and creating seven shots on target. The concern, though, is that Arsenal were not more effective in converting their chances to goals. Olivier Giroud opened the scoring on 16 minutes, but the Gunners needed a Crystal Palace own goal to win the game.
From two Premier League games, Arsenal players have only been able to score one goal. They appear to have entered the season sluggish, which mirrors the strain that was placed on the sublime Alexis Sánchez. And the Chilean then had to play for his county in a victorious Copa América campaign.
Arsenal stars like Giroud, Mesut Özil, Aaron Ramsey, and Santi Cazorla need to step up and carry the burden that is so often on Sánchez’s shoulders. This has to happen if Arsenal are to win against Liverpool.
Brendan Rodgers and Liverpool’s notorious transfer committee have combined to spend approximately £290 million on 31 players during their time together. At the end of last season, it appeared as if Rodgers could be at the end of his Anfield review. Rodgers, however, was able to convince Liverpool owner John W Henry that he should keep his job.
Rodgers had another busy summer, bringing in several new players. But while doubt shrouds some of the new players, there is no denying that Nathaniel Clyne, James Milner, and Christian Benteke have already began to deliver, albeit to varying extents.
Liverpool have played quite well in defence, with the partnership of Martin Skrtel and Dejan Lovren holding firm during the first two league games. And it turns out that keeping clean sheets proved the catalyst for Liverpool starting the season with six points from a possible six.
After struggling to break down Stoke City, was at last able to open the scoring with a stunning strike on 84 minutes. Liverpool against struggled to score against Bournemouth, but a clean sheet and a controversial goal from Benteke were enough to secure the points. Defensive solidarity will have to continue at a time when Liverpool do not have it together in attack.
Liverpool have been given extremely long odds of 4.50 to win this game. And it’s also surprising to see that bet365 are offering 3.75 on a draw.
This could be a great bet as neither side is gelling in attack and both would likely accept a draw.
