Liverpool v Arsenal Tips: Can Arsenal gun down Liverpool?

| 29.12.2018

It’s been a long wait for Liverpool fans to see their side win the top division again.

But Jurgen Klopp’s men could go some way to dispelling these demons if they can beat Arsenal at Anfield tonight.

The Reds haven’t lost a single Premier League game this season with talk of an ‘invincible’ campaign bubbling under the surface.

Arsenal stand in their way. The Gunners are just beginning a new era under Unai Emery, but can they be the team to shoot down this Liverpool express train?

We’ve got all the key odds and team news ahead of the clash…

Match odds

The last time Arsenal beat Liverpool at Anfield was in 2012. They’ve since gone five league visits without a win, including three losses.

It’s 1/2 for Klopp’s boys to the business and pick up another three points.

The pair did draw at the Emirates Stadium earlier in the season. A stalemate is 17/5.

Emery may play two upfront today and the North Londoners are 5/1 to bag an away win.

Talking Tactics

After his impressive goal in the 4-0 drubbing of Newcastle United, Dejan Lovren should retain his place in Liverpool defence.

Trent Alexander-Arnold’s return to fitness is a big boost. Klopp’s midfield could be a trio of James Milner, Fabinho and Georginio Wijnaldum.

Arsenal need to find away of getting Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Ozil in the team on consistent basis.

Emery will be hoping Shkodran Mustafi is available and could start Ainsley Maitland-Niles instead of Stephan Lichtsteiner at right back.

Lucas Torreira didn’t pick up a suspension against Brighton and Hove Albion. But key to this game could be how long Granit Xhaka is deployed in midfield, rather than in a back-three.

Goalscorer odds

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the Premier League’s top marksman.

The Gabon international is 19/10 to notch anytime.

His strike partner Alexandre Lacazette will hope to play the full 90 minutes this evening. He’s 7/1 to bag last in the match.

Mohamed Salah’s 12 strikes have been at a rate of a goal every 132 minutes this season. He’s fast returning to his best form and is 12/5 to score 2 or more goals.

Roberto Firmino has been directly involved in eight goals in his last six Prem games against the Gunners.

The Brazilian international is hard to pin down and is 11/8 to score anytime.
