Arsenal have won three of their last four matches in the Premier League to enhance their chances of finishing in the Champions League places but they Gunners will face a stern test of their top four mettle on Sunday as they travel to under-fire Liverpool.
Nevertheless, despite the Reds enjoying home advantage, it’s Arsene Wenger’s troops that will kick-off as BetVictor’s 13/8 favourites while the hosts are 9/5 with Stan James to ease the pressure on manager Brendan Rodgers by collecting a maximum haul.
Bet365 chalk an Anfield stalemate up at 5/2 and it’s easy to see that price attracting cash given that both teams look far from invincible and as the defences are unlikely to be on top, BetVictor’s 19/5 about a score draw isn’t without appeal.
More accurately, punters fancying a speculative flutter could do worse than consider betway’s 12/1 for it to finish two-apiece as a match tally of three or more goals (8/11, Skybet) could be on the cards.
In terms of scorers, there are a host of candidates. Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud got back amongst the goals last weekend against Newcastle, Raheem Sterling came close on several occasions for Liverpool at Old Trafford last time out but the man to focus on is Alexis Sanchez.
The Chilean has struck eight times in his last ten outings for the Gunners and looks cracking at 15/8 (Ladbrokes) to notch at any stage in this clash. Bolder punters can back Sanchez at 6/1 courtesy of William Hill to break the deadlock.
