Premier League: Arsenal vs Liverpool

Arsenal vs Liverpool Betting Tip and Predictions. In the most interesting match in the first round of Premier League in the season 2016/2017, Arsenal host Liverpool at Emirates. Read below betting preview, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Arsenal vs Liverpool.

Alexis Sanchez, Arsenal

Arsenal finished the previous season at the second position, but ambitions for the upcoming season in Premier League are to try to win the trophy. It won’t be an easy job for them because few very good teams have the same ambition. One of them is Liverpool and Arsenal will be fully motivated to take three points in the first round. Arsenal have played 5 friendlies and didn’t lose (4-1-0). In the last friendly game they beat Manchester City 3-2 and they are full of confidence for the match against LFC. Mathieu Flamini and Tomás Rosicky both left the club, while Mikel Arteta retired. On the other side, Arsenal bought Granit Xhaka Borussia Mönchengladbach. Arsène Wenger didn’t make many changes in team and he believes that they will have enough strengths to win Premier League this season.

Liverpool finished the last season at the 8th position and that was disappointing result for them. True, they changed their manager and appointed Jürgen Klopp as their new managed in the middle of the season. Now, he knows their players better and everyone in the club expect good performance this season and one of the Top 4 position. Liverpool played few friendly games in the preparing period and made few good results (beat FC Barcelona 4-0 and AC Milan 2-0), but on the other side they also lost some matches that they shouldn’t. They will not play in Europan competitions this season, so they can focus on Premier League. Liverpool had a good chance to qualify in the Champions League, but they lost in the final of the UEFA Europa League against Sevilla 1-3, so they will play only domestic competition(s). Visitors brought few very good players in the current transfer window such as Sadio Mané (Southampton), Georginio Wijnaldum (Newcastle), goalkeeper Loris Karius (1.FSV Mainz 05) and Marko Grujic (Red Star Belgrade), while Lazar Markovic and Mario Balotelli are back in the squad after the end of loan.

These two teams played two times previous season and both matches were finished without winner. The first match between Arsenal vs Liverpool was finished without goals 0-0, while at Anfield we’ve seen amazing match with 6 goals (3-3).

Arsenal vs Liverpool Prediction

Both teams want to make good start in the first round of Premier League, so I expect very interesting match between Arsenal vs Liverpool. Home side have very strong squad, but they have some problems in defence due to injuries. I believe that Liverpool can avoid defeat on this match, but the first betting prediction is both teams to score.
