Despite a woeful start to the season which saw Mikel Arteta’s job under threat, Arsenal now sit just two points behind title-chasing Liverpool, knowing a win at Anfield will take them up into the top four ahead of the Reds.
Liverpool saw their incredible unbeaten run, which stretched back to April, ended before the international break when they fell to defeat at the London Stadium against West Ham United.
They are going brilliantly in a tough Champions League group, but have now fallen to fourth. However, luckily for Jurgen Klopp, they now face an opponent they love playing, Arsenal, a team they completed a comfortable double over last season.
Arsenal’s great form since September has gone slightly under the radar, but they have gathered substantial momentum to lift themselves from the foot of the table to fifth in the matter of eight matches. However, their only relatively tough tests on paper were against underperforming Leicester and Tottenham sides. Their last fixture against a side on a similar level to Liverpool saw them lose 5-0 at Manchester City.
Liverpool have won five in a row and are unbeaten in eight at home to the Gunners, scoring 28 goals in the process. This season, seven of their 12 wins have been by three or more goals, so Liverpool (-2) is our tip at 10/3.
