Liverpool vs Arsenal Betting Tips
Both teams have started their 2019-2020 Premier League campaigns in the fifth gear. Both Arsenal and Liverpool have won each of the games played so far, which is why these two teams are occupying the two top spots on the table. The reds are at the very top due to a better goal difference. They scored a total of six goals in the two rounds while allowing only two. The gunners, on the other hand, have a goal difference of 3:1.
Liverpool are the favorites here and there are several reasons for that. First of all, this is the team that finished in second place in the Premier League table last season, with just one point behind the champions. Secondly, the game is taking place at the Anfield, where the Reds have won every single game since February. Finally, Liverpool also have a great record against Arsenal, particularly in the last couple of season. In fact, the last time these two met, the game finished 5:1 in Liverpool’s favor.
Of course, the Gunners must not be underestimated. This is a side with plenty of talent in the squad. They seem strong in all areas, including the back, which used to be their Achilles’ heel. Now that they’ve signed David Luiz from Chelsea, their backline seems much stronger than it was last season. And that’s why it’s not surprising that they’ve allowed only one goal so far. Still, to be fair, they played only against Burnley and Newcastle, two teams that aren’t famous for their attacking prowess.

Liverpool Form and Latest News
Even they were pretty quiet during the summer transfer period, the Reds have started the new season in an impressive manner. They did lose the Community Shield to Man City at the start of the month, but only after a penalty shootout. They then went to win two Premier League games, as well as to beat Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup. Obviously, when it comes to form, they got nothing to worry about. But, there are some worries in terms of injuries. Their first-choice goalie Alisson is out and the same goes for Clyne and Keita.
Arsenal Form and Latest News
With players like Aubameyang and Lacazette in the attack, the Gunners have been incredibly dangerous for a while now. And with the recent addition of Pepe, they seem like one of the strongest English teams attacking-wise. The trouble is that they don’t appear as strong at the back. Or at least, they didn’t appear before signing David Luiz. Their backline now seems pretty tough, although there are some absentees. Their full-backs Bellerin and Tierney are definitely out and the same probably goes for their center-backs Holding and Mavropanos.
