Match Odds


Arsenal – 13/10 Bet Victor
Draw – 5/2 William Hill
Liverpool – 12/5 Betfred

If Liverpool win on Saturday it will be the first time Arsenal will have lost three consecutive home games since their move to The Emirates stadium.
The last time the both sides met at The Emirates the points were shared as Arsenal came from 2-0 down to get a draw. If you fancy history to repeat itself you can get 13/1 (Bet Victor) for a 2-2 draw.
Both teams have been in excellent form in the league coming into this game. With Arsenal adding to bottom of the league Crystal Palace’s woes with a 2-0 win at Selhurst Park and Liverpool’s strike force seeing off West Brom 4-1 at Anfield.

History proves that November is Arsenal’s least productive month in Premier League so Liverpool will be hoping this continues.

Arsene Wenger made a number of changes for the midweek clash against Chelsea as they crashed out of the Capital One cup. So the regular first teamers should not be tired for the game against Liverpool.

By contrast Liverpool had a break midweek as they were knocked out of the Capital One cup in the previous round and will have a fresh squad and will also welcome back Phillipe Coutinho from injury.

Arsenal will bring back their big hitters like Mesut Ozil back into the side as well as Olivier Giroud, (11/2 first scorer Coral) after Nicklas Bendtner put in a lacklustre performance in the midweek defeat to Chelsea.

Liverpool’s front two will be looking to continue their impressive form this season. Suarez (11/2 first scorer Skybet) and Sturridge (6/1first scorer Ladbrokes) have netted 14 times between themselves this season, with Sturridge scoring in all but one league game for The Reds.

This will be the toughest test yet for the Arsenal defence as they come up against the two inform strikers in the Premier League.
The draw at 5/2 with William Hill looks a good bet at the price it is. All three results are possible but going into the game both sides would settle for a draw and with seven draws in the last 12 meetings between the teams then 5/2 is good value.

Recommendation

Olivier Giroud and Luis Suarez both to score @ 11/2 Skybet
