Undefeated Liverpool will be looking to build on their impressive start to the season when they travel to Arsenal on Saturday. The Reds, who are unbeaten from their first 10 Premier League matches, currently sit second in the table behind reigning champions Manchester City on goal difference and have won all three encounters in all competitions since the October international break, including a 4-1 victory over Cardiff City last time out.
In contrast, The Gunners’ 11-game winning run was stopped by a 2-2 draw away at Crystal Palace on Sunday, while Unai Emery’s side currently sits fourth in the Premier League after recovering well from suffering back-to-back defeats in their opening two matches of the season.
Saturday will mark the 225th meeting between the two Premier League top clubs. Liverpool has won 86 of those meetings compared to Arsenal’s 78 wins, with 60 draws over the years. Jurgen Klopp’s side will be desperate to avoid dropping points against Arsenal as they look to retain their position ahead of the teams just behind them. Liverpool with odds of (2.09) on SportyBet are favorites to come out on top in North London.
Liverpool is undefeated in their last six matches against the Gunners, last losing back in April 2015 when Hector Bellerin, Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez, and Olivier Giroud got on the scoresheet in a 4-1 thrashing. Two of the last three matches between the teams at this ground have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of (3.80) on them sharing the spoils once again here.
The Gunners haven’t won any of the last six meetings between these two, but are unbeaten in their last 13 matches in all competitions. Can they continue their winning run by defeating Liverpool at The Emirates? A big home win at odds of (3.85) with SportyBet would arguably announce Emery’s side as potential title challengers.
Arsenal hasn’t been ahead at half-time in any of their 10 Premier League games this season. Indeed, if matches finished at the 45-minute mark, the Gunners would be 17th in the Premier League table. The Reds are priced at odds of (2.46) by SportyBet to win the first half of this encounter.
You can back both teams to score at odds of (1.48), and over 3.5 goals at odds of (2.18) on SportyBet considering their last nine Premier League encounters produced more than five goals a match.
