Liverpool v Arsenal betting tips: Gunners big outsiders for Anfield coup

| 20.11.2021

Liverpool v Arsenal betting tips and odds

Arsenal take their eight-game unbeaten run to Anfield on Saturday for what should be a thrilling televised tea-time clash with Liverpool.

The Reds’ unbeaten start to the season ended before the international break when they went down 3-2 at West Ham but they are 1/2 to beat the Gunners this weekend.

Mikel Arteta’s men are 5/2 to finish in the top four but let’s see what their prospects are for the trip to Merseyside in our Liverpool v Arsenal betting tips.

Match Odds

The Gunners are just two points behind fourth-placed Liverpool and are unbeaten in their last eight matches, so they certainly look interesting at 11/2 to win on Saturday.

That said, the north Londoners have won just one of the last 12 Premier League meetings with Liverpool who have won this fixture by at least two goals in the previous five years.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are 6/5 to win by a two-goal margin or better or 17/10 to win and concede as they have in the last three seasons.

The Reds won three of the last five at Anfield by a 3-1 scoreline and that option is available at 10/1 while at least four goals in the match, Liverpool to win and both teams to score is 5/2.

Arsenal, though, have looked transformed under Arteta this season, beating Tottenham and Leicester during their unbeaten spell, so a draw does not look out of the question at 7/2, with goals thrown in priced at 21/5.

There have been at least four goals in the Reds’ last six Premier League matches and a seventh is available at 13/10 as one of our Liverpool v Arsenal betting tips.

Talking Tactics

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson and defender Andy Robertson face late fitness tests

The pair returned from international duty with minor issues and that has restricted their participation to recovery work away from the main squad.

Forward Sadio Mane has recovered from the bruised ribs sustained playing for Senegal but boss Jurgen Klopp’s longer-term injury list includes Roberto Firmino (hamstring), Joe Gomez (calf), Curtis Jones (eye), Harvey Elliott (ankle) with James Milner and Naby Keita (both hamstring) closest to returning next week.

Arsenal could be without striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and midfielder Thomas Partey.

Aubameyang returned early from international duty and manager Arteta said he would have to be assessed ahead of the match, while Partey was unable to go on international duty and it remains to be seen whether he will be fit for the
game.

Goalscorer Odds

Mo Salah has scored 15 times in all competitions this season and tops the Premier League chart with 10 goals.

He is understandably the 13/5 favourite to break the deadlock despite having never done so against Saturday’s opponents.

Diogo Jota struck the first blow in a 3-0 win at the Emirates seven months ago and is 4/1 for a repeat or 13/10 to get on the scoresheet.

Sadio Mane drew first blood at Arsenal in the 2019-20 season and netted Liverpool’s first goal in a 3-1 win almost 14 months ago, so we go 4/1 and 7/5 on the Senegal striker in the two markets.

Aubameyang is the 7/1 favourite to bag the game’s opening goal from the Arsenal contingent despite an injury worry while Alexandre Lacazette is 15/2 and 5/2 in the two options.

Emile Smith Rowe, who made his England debut from off the bench against Albania and was a goalscoring starter in the 10-0 rout of San Marino, is 14/1 and 9/2 in the two markets in our Liverpool v Arsenal betting tips.
