Chelsea’s victory at Manchester City on Monday evening tightened things up in terms of the title race, keeping the Blues in the hunt in what looks like a three-horse race.
Liverpool however, will believe they are also contenders if they manage to defeat Arsenal at Anfield in Saturday’s early kick-off and Stan James reckon the Reds can do the business, pricing them at 11/10 to send the Gunners home empty-handed.
The league leaders are 5/2 with BetVictor to complete a league double over Brendan Rodgers’s troops while an inconclusive contest at 13/5 courtesy of bet365, is bound to be well backed in light of Arsenal’s excellent away record and impressive recent form.
Indeed, in the circumstances, it’s hard to overlook the stalemate, especially as the Gunners are unbeaten in six league outings against the Reds on Merseyside, winning three of those and sharing the spoils in the others.Bet365 quote a score draw at 10/3, BetVictor offer 11/2 about both halves finishing all square and it’s 13/1 at the same firm for the teams to play out a 2-2 thriller, just as the Gunners did in their last away assignment, at Southampton.
In attack, Stan James predictably make Luis Suarez the 4/1 favourite to break the deadlock but Daniel Sturridge is in stunning form having struck seven times in his last six matches and the Liverpool front man perhaps represents better value than his strike partner, at 11/2 (Ladbrokes) for the opener.
