Clash of the Titans in the English Premier League
Three points — that’s the gap between Manchester City and Liverpool, the two soccer betting favorites to win the English Premier League title. That’s why the Citizens will be rooting for Arsenal when Liverpool visits Emirates Stadium midweek.
The Reds haven’t lost in their last nine games and dominate the odds board thanks to a -125 price. That makes the Gunners a tempting underdog because they won their last five games with a 10-4 aggregate.
Let’s check the latest news, stats, injury reports, and Premier league odds for Arsenal vs Liverpool. We’ve plenty of predictions for you to consider.
Arsenal Not Missing Aubameyang
Last Sunday, Alexandre Lacazette woke up and led Arsenal to a 2-0 victory over Leicester City. The Frenchman, who has scored four goals, is one of the main reasons why the Gunners let Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang go. I’m pleased to say that we even predicted he was going to score against the Foxes.
The list of reasons also includes Emile Smith Rowe (nine goals), Bukayo Saka (eight) and Gabriel Martinelli (five). As you can see, the Gunners have plenty of weapons to end Liverpool’s hot streak.
Arsenal had a very rocky start to the season. However, the Gunners have turned things around thanks to winning eight of its last 10 games at home. That’s not all, they also finished with a clean sheet in six of those games.
Winning the title is no longer a possibility, but their main goal is to qualify for the UEFA Champions League. Beating Liverpool would allow them to depend only on themselves to finish in the top four. That should be enough for you to consider including them in your soccer picks, especially at +305.
Liverpool Has Nothing to Envy
If Arsenal’s attacking unit is good, Liverpool’s is unbelievable. First, we’ve Mohamed Salah, who has scored 20 goals. Then, Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane, each with 12 goals. The three of them have scored more goals than 15 teams — in total!
The Reds won their last two games on the road with the exact same score, 2-0. First, they defeated Inter Milan at San Siro. Most recently, they defeated Brighton Falmer Stadium. Salah and Luis Diaz were the scorers. Keep in mind, in both cases, the total went under the posted number of 2½.
Diaz deserves a lot of praise. The Colombian arrived only a few weeks ago but already won a spot in the starting lineup. I know, as if the trio previously mentioned wasn’t enough. Head coach Jurgen Klopp truly believes that the best defense is a good offense.
Liverpool already advanced to the UCL Round of 8, which means they can fully focus on chasing Manchester City. Have no doubt that they’ll go all-in on Thursday.

Arsenal vs Liverpool Prediction
Arsenal has improved a lot, but the Gunners aren’t ready to defeat an opponent such as Liverpool. However, I do believe they’ll contribute to the total, set at 2½ goals to go over (-140). Regarding the EPL, the total went over three goals in seven of their last 10 meetings.
I’m telling you, expect fireworks. I would still include the over in my online gambling ticket all the way up to 3½.
Score Prediction: Liverpool 3, Arsenal 2
