Arsenal v Liverpool Preview, Premiership, Saturday 2nd November 2013

Arsenal will have been extremely disappointed with their 2-0 defeat midweek in the League Cup and it did show that manager Arsene Wenger made a grave mistake of starting the game with an under strength side and that defeat now means that Arsenal fans will have to wait until at least May 2014 now to see if they can win any silverwear this season.

Liverpool are looking like real title contenders for a change and with Suarez now back and firing on all cylinders they could be well worth getting on to win their first ever Premiership League Title at 8/1 with Coral (£50 Free Bets for New Customers) and with Daniel Sturridge also scoring for fun at the moment, the Arsenal defence looks likely to be kept very busy come saturday evening.

Arsenal v Liverpool Team News

Arsenal Team News:

Arsene Wenger has a number of casaulties to his squad who will remain unavailable for this game with Podolski, Diaby and Theo Walcott all still recovering from respective injury problems. Flamini is also a major doubt having to come off after just 8mins in last weekend’s 2-0 victory away against Crystal Palace and will under take a late fitness test to see if he can be involved. Mikel Arteta is also out having been sent of during that game and starts a three game suspension.

Oliver Giroud and Aaron Ramsey are the clubs current top goalscorers so far this season with 5 each.

Liverpool Team News:

Iago Aspas and Sebastian Coates are still a few weeks away from returning to the squad with both players still receiving treatment for respective injury problems. Coutinho will under take a late fitness test now he has returned to full training, but it looks likely that manager Brendan Rogers will not risk rushing the influential playmaker back just yet.

Striker Daniel Sturridge is the clubs current top goalscorer so far this season with 8.

Arsenal v Liverpool Match Betting Odds Market.

Arsenal will be looking to bounce back from their 2-0 defeat against Chelsea in the League Cup during the midweek and with home advantage the online bookmakers seem to think that Arsene Wengers side will be the ones celebrating come saturday night as the hosts have been installed as the clear favourites at a current best price of 13/10 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers).

The Draw has happened twice in the previous five meetings between the two clubs and with little to choose between them so far this season another one could very well be on the cards and at a current best price of 5/2 with Stan James (£10 Free Bets for New Customers) this might be worth having something on.

Liverpool completely destroyed West Brom last weekend and with Suarez now in full goal scoring form up front along with Daniel Sturridge I would expect the visitors to get at least one during this game and their current best price of 12/5 with Betfred (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) does represent value in my opinion.

Arsenal v Liverpool Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

A game that for me could go either way on the day and it really will depend on which of these two sides controls the midfield area. Chelsea showed this midweek during their victory over Arsenal and if Liverpool can do the same then for me this will finish in a victory for Brendan Rogers side.

However, with Arsene Wenger expected to play his strongest side available for this one, which will include the likes of Ozil, Ramsey, Giroud and either Cazorla or Wilshere this Arsenal midfield will be a much stronger one that what Chelsea came up against and Liverpool will have to be at their very best to win this game.

The goal stats suggest at least a couple of goals to be scored during this game and with all of the previous five meetings between the two clubs having had at least 2 goals or more betting markets like Both Teams to Score YES, Total Match Goals and Anytime Goalscorers could also be worth having a look at in the search for value.
