Liverpool News and Form

Liverpool have hit some good early form this season. Even when they weren’t at their best last weekend against Southampton, the Reds still picked up three points. They started the season with a 4-1 home win over the newly-promoted Norwich, before grinding a bit in a 2-1 win at St Mary’s last weekend. Sandwiched in between those two league fixtures was their UEFA Super Cup victory over Chelsea in Istanbul. So it was perhaps only natural that they would be off their game a little bit at Southampton. Still, with Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane all having opened their accounts, it’s been a good start.

Arsenal Outright Win
5/1

It has been six goals form two league games, however, Liverpool have not looked as good at the back as they were last season. There were hints of that during the pre-season and with them having conceded in both Premier League games and in that Super Cup match against Chelsea, that will be a concern for them. It may well be worth looking at both teams to score from a betting perspective in this fixture. Liverpool took a W17 D2 L0 record at home last season. They averaged 2.9 goals per Anfield game last season and conceded just 10 times in total there. It is an eight-match winning streak of home form in the Premier League that they are on.

Arsenal News and Form

The only other team besides Liverpool to win their opening two games of the new Premier League season has been Arsenal. They haven’t quite been as convincing as Liverpool though, but the results are the things that matter. The Gunners opened the season with a 1-0 victory at Newcastle and then took a 2-1 home success over Burnley last weekend. They were a little lucky in that home game against the Clarets to get out with a win, as Burnley really challenged them.

The strength of Arsenal is in attack and that is only going to get even better when summer singing Nicolas Pepe finally gets up to speed in the top flight. Pierre Emerick Aubameyang has netted both of Arsenal’s league goals this season and both of his goals incidentally have been scored after the half time break. Both of his goals have been winning goals too. That’s the importance of his finishing to this team.

Arsenal don’t have great form going against Liverpool, particularly not at Anfield. Last season in the top flight, Arsenal were blighted with defensive errors out on the road. They only managed one clean sheet away from home in picking up a W7 D4 L8 record. In total Arsenal conceded at an average of 1.8 goals per road fixture. 74% of Arsenal’s away games last season went over 2.5 goals.

Liverpool v Arsenal Predictions

Liverpool to win: If these two go all-out attack on each other, it should be an absolute goal-fest. Liverpool’s defence hasn’t looked up to par to what it was last season. So there is a decent chance that Arsenal will get on the scoreboard but we would still have to lean on the home win happening.
