It is the derby of the perfect ones. Both Liverpool and Arsenal have a couple of wins after the opening two rounds. But they also have high ambitions regarding this season. Anything else but the title would be a massive failure for the Reds, while on the other side, the Gunners splashed the cash to get players who might help them reach one of top four places and the spot in the Premier League.
Liverpool redeemed for the lost Community Shield, by defeating Chelsea in UEFA Super Cup played in Istanbul. The Reds didn’t dominate that match, but the penalty shootout ended in their favour this time. After that Jurgen Klopp’s side won in Southampton with 1-2 and kept the rhythm in the domestic championship. Since the preseason started and counting all the friendly and competitive matches, only one of them ended with under 2.5 goals. The same situation is with both teams scoring. Up until this point, L’pool played 10 games, and knowing style, this trend isn’t going to stop anytime soon.
The weakest area in Arsenal’s line up, the defence, received a major boost in the last couple of days of the transfer window. David Luiz and Kieran Tierney landed at Emirates and will no doubt make the back line of the club from North London much stronger. In the previous two games, the Gunners have allowed just one goal, but on the other side, haven’t been that efficient themselves, scoring only three times. Then again, of all 10 events they played since they go together this season, two haven’t seen three or more goals. Arsenal’ attack has tremendous potential, and they need just a little bit more chemistry to click and make a huge noise in the Premiership.

Liverpool has massive problems with goalkeepers. Alisson is not ready, while Adrian still feels some consequences from the injury received by the fan in Istanbul. But it seems that the backup goalie is going to start the match. Naby Keita’s situation is unclear, and so far, there is no information about whether he will be in the protocol or not. Nathaniel Clyne is out until January.
The newest addition mentioned above, Tierney is out because of hernia. Hector Bellerin and Konstantinos Mavropanos are also out. All three will be side-lined until October. Granit Xhaka should be available for the game.
Liverpool is the favourite here, as they have a better team and play at Anfield. We believe that Arsenal’s defence is still not up to the task of restraining such a fantastic offence as the one Reds have. Mane, Firmino, and Salah are just too big of a challenge for Luiz and the rest of the guys. Because of that, we would propose Liverpool to win with an Asian handicap -1.5 goals. The odds for that are 5/4 at Unibet.
The second tip is also linked with Liverpool’s efficiency. For all the reasons from the previous paragraph, we believe that betting on the hosts to score at least once in both halftimes would be a smart thing to do. William Hill has the best offer on that, which will more than double your stake, 21/20.
