Arsenal v Liverpool Preview, Premiership, Sunday 14th August 2016

Arsenal will have been a little disappointed with their performance last season having failed to secure a much overdue Premiership Title, but they did manage finish above arch rivals Tottenham Hotspur once again and with the club also having qualified for the group stages of the UEFA Champions League, the club continues to be consistent.

This season looks like being the last one for manager Arsen Wenger as the fans continue to be unhappy with the club’s failure to bring in any world class individuals, but all that will be forgotten on Sunday afternoon if Arsenal start their new season on the front foot with a victory.

Liverpool could only manage a 8th place finish in the league table last season after suffering a dreadfull first few months and although they did turn it around towards the end, they still failed to secure any European football for this season and that has not gone down at all well with their fans.

Arsenal Team News :

The hosts will definitely be without the services of Per Mertesacker, Gabriel, Danny Welbeck and Carl Jenkinson for this game as they all continue to receive treatment for respective injury related problems.

Olivier Giroud and Jack Wilshere will undertake a late fitness test to see if they can be included. Granit Xhaka and Holding look likely to make their premiership league debut’s having been impressive during the pre-season warmups.

Liverpool Team News :

The visitors also have some injury issues with both Daniel Sturridge and James Milner both having to take a late fitness test to see if either of them can be involved.

Sturridge has been suffering from a hip injury which has seen him miss the last two pre-season matches, where as Milner who has now retired from International football picked up a knock in the 4-0 victory over Barcelona last Saturday.

Arsenal v Liverpool Head to Head Statistics:

Sunday afternoon’s game from the Emirates Stadium will become the 187th meeting between the two clubs over the years, of which Arsenal have won 68 times overall with 42 of those victories having came with home advantage, where as Liverpool have won 67 times overall with just 19 of those victories having came at the Emirates Stadium.

As we can see from our head to head to head statistics table shown below, recent meetings between the two clubs shows Arsenal with a clear advantage having won two of the last five matches played, compared to Liverpool having failed to win any and the remaining three matches having finished up all square.

Arsenal v Liverpool Match Betting Odds Market

Arsenal head into this game as the clear favourites to win this match at current best odds available of 7/5 with Bet365 – Receive £200 Matched Bonus Bets when Registering a New Account, and this does look the value play if we look at Arsenal’s home record against Liverpool over the years.

The Draw is a current a best price of 5/2 with BetVictor – Bet £10 & Receive £60 for New Customers Registering an Account, and could be worth getting something on as with three of the last five meetings having finished all square, it wouldn’t surpise me at all to see this one following suit.

Liverpool are currently a best price to win this game of 21/10 with BetFred – Bet £10 & Receive £30 Free Bets when Registering a New Account, but with Sturridge and Milner unlikely to feature, unless they pass their late fitness test, it looks like being a very difficult afternoon for the Liverpool players.

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

Both squads are suffering from injuries, so it could be a sensible decision to wait until we have confirmed team news before placing any of your bets on this game.

If Sturridge and Milner do play then I expect Liverpool to have a chance of causing a bit of an upset in this match, but early indications from the club does seem to suggest that both will be rested for this game.

Arsenal also have injury concerns and will definitely be short at the back with Per Mertesacker, Gabriel and Laurent Koscielny all missing. Danny Welbeck is also unavailable and with doubts over Olivier Giroud and Jack Wilshere this does seem a game that could go either way.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this game is going to be for Both Teams to Score and Arsenal to Win as with an excellent record at home against Liverpool and having remained unbeaten in their last five meetings against Liverpool this does look the value play here.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip is going to be for Theo Walcott to open up the scoring for his side as if Giroud doesn’t pass his late fitness test, Wenger will most likely play Walcott as the main attack up front and we all have seen over the years that he knows how to finish.
