Liverpool v Arsenal - Sunday 16.30 Sky Sports
Neither of these sides will be entirely happy with the way they’ve started this season, especially from a defensive standpoint with Liverpool conceding three at Watford and Arsenal doing the same hosting Leicester on the opening day. Indeed, the three matches played between these two since Klopp took charge of Liverpool have yielded a grand total of 17 goals – with Over 3.5 Goals landing each time. Given there’s precious little evidence that either side has sorted themselves out defensively, we’re fully expecting another cracker between these twoUp To £888 Free - No Deposit Required!
Of those 17 goals, 10 were netted by Liverpool, who have certainly had the better of it against top-six sides under the German. Their record at Anfield in such games reads W5-D5-L1, whereas Arsenal have continually struggled. Last season, they lost four of five winless matches travelling to their fellow top-six opponents, conceding at least twice in each of defeat, though they did net in all but one of these. With Arsene Wenger’s poor track record in these types of games, we’re backing Liverpool/both teams to score.
For those seeking longer odds, we’d recommend the 3-1 correct score. Arsenal scored exactly one goal in four of their five trips to last season’s top six, losing 3-1 at both Stamford Bridge and Anfield, while Liverpool have conceded more than once on only one occasion when hosting top-six sides under Klopp.
