Liverpool v Arsenal betting tips and predictions for Sunday’s Premier League match with free expert football betting tips for Liverpool vs Arsenal.
Both teams will go into this Christmas cracker of a fixture looking to reignite stuttering starts to the season.
Liverpool will be keen to get their domestic campaign back on track and reproduce the form that propelled them to a second-place finish last season.
They will be boosted this week by their performance in securing a Capital One Cup semi-final berth against Chelsea, after a dominating performance against Championship high-flyers Bournemouth.
Raheem Sterling scored two goals at Dean Court in midweek and with Daniel Sturridge unavailable with a long-term injury the Reds will rely on Sterling coming up trumps again here. Sterling is fancied to carry on his goalscoring form and open the scoring on Sunday.
Our first Liverpool v Arsenal betting tip is for Raheem Sterling to score first at odds of 15/2 with Paddy Power. If Sterling doesn’t score first but does score in the match you’ll get a refund.
Arsenal, like their opponents on Sunday, have had an indifferent start to their Premier League season and currently sit in sixth place having lost four games already this season – they are actually 12 points worse off than they were at this stage last season.
Amid talks of crisis after a reversal at the hands of Stoke City on December 6th, the Gunners have since gone on to smash eight goals in two games with four in each game against Galatasaray and last weekend against Newcastle.
Olivier Giroud has been in fine form since his return from injury and got his just rewards for an impressive performance against the Magpies as he left the field with two goals.
The 2/1 Ladbrokes are offering for Giroud to score anytime is a good price and that is our next Liverpool v Arsenal prediction this weekend.
You would have to fancy both teams to score as a fairly sound bet for this one at Anfield on Sunday given both sides’ defensive frailties.
Brendan Rodgers must have had many a sleepless night over his side’s incapability at the back with summer signing Dejan Lovren looking a patch of the player that earned him the £20M summer move to Merseyside.
Arsenal have world cup winner Per Mertesacker holding things together at the back but it has been a problem of late of who to play with him, with full-backs Mathieu Debuchy and Nacho Monreal both being deployed as makeshift central defenders in the absence of Laurent Koscielny.
Instead of taking the short odds for a both teams to score bet, we’re predicting a correct score of 2-2 in Liverpool v Arsenal at the odds of 13/1 with Bet Victor.
Given the nature of this game and how desperate both sides are for a win to keep up their top 4 aspirations, I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see someone sent for an early bath so for our last Liverpool v Arsenal betting tip we are taking the 11/4 for a red card at Boylesports.
Referee for this one is Michael Oliver and whilst he has only shown one red card so far this season he has issues 50 yellow cards in his 12 Premier League games this term. His only dismissal was for Chris Smalling in the Manchester derby when he issued him with two yellow cards in the first half, indicating his strict nature when it comes to cautions.
