Score Draw

Arsenal vs Liverpool has generally been the most exciting Premier League matchup over the last few years. Since the start of 2014, the 14 fixtures between these two sides have yielded an almighty 62 (sixty two goals), and considering the state both sides currently find themselves in, we could be in for another fascinating afternoon.

The Gunners come into this following their damaging North London Derby defeat to Spurs, and it’s now incredibly unlikely we’ll see them competing in Europe next season (unless they win the FA Cup). Will this allow them to play with freedom and have a good go at Liverpool? Perhaps, and Mikel Arteta will be encouraged by how the visitors have played in recent weeks.

It’s hard to be too critical of Liverpool. They’re the earliest ever Premier League champions and still have the record points haul well within their sights, but the inescapable fact is that since proverbially lifting the trophy, they’ve been a little off the boil, as we saw in the 1-1 draw with a very gritty Burnley side at Anfield.

In terms of tipping, a score draw looks like quite a nice longshot. Three of the last five meetings between Arsenal and Liverpool have been score draws, including the last two games at The Emirates.

Furthermore, Liverpool have only won one of their last four away games in the league, while Arsenal have won four and drawn one of their last five on home soil.

Neither side will play with inhibitions, which is why this could become something of a slugfest, with a score draw at the end of the 90 minutes looking a decent longshot proposal.
