The goals are on the menu this weekend as the Premier League continues.
And we’ve got some betting tips for you as Liverpool prepare to take on Arsenal in a tantalizing clash.
Liverpool vs Arsenal, 20h
A cracker under the lights is in store on Merseyside as the defending champions welcome the Gunners.
There has already been some drama with this one, as the kick-off time has been moved 15 minutes earlier to allow supporters to watch the game in the pub without it going through the new cover. 10 pm fire.
And judging by how the first four games involving these teams have gone, fans will need a drink.
Liverpool are two-for-two, but not fearless against Leeds – although they weren’t troubled as ten-man Chelsea were sidelined at Stamford Bridge.
Just a word for Thiago Alcantara as well, who came off the bench in that win and looked at the Rolls Royce that he is.
At least one of those teams loses their perfect start with Arsenal coming into the game following wins over Fulham and West Ham.
You can only beat what’s put in front of you, but it’s the first major test for Mikel Arteta and his team this season.
And we’re not convinced they’ll be up to the task of ending Liverpool’s seemingly endless run from Anfield – despite the Community Shield triumph just a few weeks ago.
Merseyside is not a happy hunting ground for the Gunners and they last won on this ground in 2012.
That’s seven unsuccessful visits to the Premier League, with Liverpool scoring three or more times in SIX of these meetings.
While Jurgen Klopp’s side look impressive in front of goal again, that’s how you play here.
Liverpool are an attempting 1/2 to win the game and we won’t stop you from supporting them, especially as the final leg of a weekend cumulative.
But much more tempting is the 5/4 which you can achieve on 3.5 goals.
It was a winner last EIGHT times Arsenal have played here, including a 5-5 draw in the Carabao Cup last season.
We don’t expect Arteta to employ the same mess tactics Frank Lampard used last week which dulled the Reds all the way to Christensen’s red card.
And as such, return Liverpool to the net often and early.
The reds mark BOTH the halves should really be odds, so don’t miss out on the 11/10 you can get right now.
Mo Salah looks like a man on a mission at the moment and has started the season just like his new haircut – clean.
His price is quite right at 5/6 for net at all times and will be popular, but we prefer Sadio Mane to score after his brace against Chelsea.
The Senegalese will have plenty of chances and 23/20 is the value pick.
