        Arsenal vs Liverpool: Betting Tips, Match Prediction & Preview

        The game of the weekend comes from the Emirates, as Arsenal host Liverpool hoping to make ground on the Premier League leaders.

        Liverpool beat Chelsea on Wednesday night via a 4-1 scoreline while the Gunners sit in third place, five points behind the Reds having played the same number of matches.

        Mikel Arteta’s side were top of the league at Christmas, but two consecutive losses against West Ham and Fulham opened the door for their opponents. Liverpool have won four in a row since their 1-1 draw with Arsenal at Anfield in December.

        A win for either side has huge implications for the title race. Three points for the hosts cuts the gap to the top to just two points, but three points for the Reds further strengthens their grip on top spot. Man City will be waiting in the wings to take advantage of any dropped points.

        Jurgen Klopp recently announced the shock news that he will be leaving the club at the end of the season after nine years. No doubt he and his players will have extra motivation to lift as many trophies as possible before his departure, so Arsenal will have to be at the top of their game this weekend if they are to get a positive result. Klopp will be without his star player Mo Salah, who is nursing a thigh injury suffered at the Africa Cup of Nations. He will, however, be able to lean on a number of other attacking options such as Darwin Nunez and Diogo Jota who have scored seven Premier League goals each so far.

        Defensively, the two teams are the best in the league. Liverpool boasts the league’s strongest defence with 19 goals conceded, and Arsenal are just behind them with 21. Despite the Londoners’ struggles post-Christmas, they did bounce back against Crystal Palace last week, thrashing them 5-0 following their winter break. Perhaps the break was what Arteta’s team needed to get back on track.

        The two sides have already met twice this season, once in the league and once in the FA Cup. The league fixture took place just before Christmas, with nothing to split the sides in a 1-1 draw. Gabriel Maghalaes gave Arsenal a very early lead, but it was cancelled out by a Salah strike at the half-hour mark. Liverpool then handed their rivals an early FA Cup exit as they won 2-0 at the Emirates in the third round.

        In the last ten years, they have met 29 times. Liverpool have won 13 of these games. The Reds have had the edge over Arsenal in recent years with three wins in seven, these victories coming in three different competitions.

        Team News

        Arsenal Team News

        Mohammed Elneny isn't likely to feature following Egypt's recent elimination from AFCON while Japan international Tomiyasu is way at the Asia Cup respectively. Jurrien Timber remains a long-term absentee, but Mikel Arteta will be hoping to welcome back Thomas Partey and Fabio Vieira, who have been missing for a number of weeks with groin and thigh injuries.

        Liverpool Team News

        Mohammed Salah picked up a thigh injury whilst away at the Africa Cup of Nations. Wataru Endo is still at the Asia Cup. Long-term absentees include Kostas Tsimikas, Thiago Alcantara and Joel Matip. Jurgen Klopp was able to name both Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson on the bench in his side's 4-1 hammering of Chelsea, it will be interesting to see if either gets the nod for this match.

        Form Guide

        Arsenal Form Guide:

        In their last six games, Arsenal have won twice, drawn once and lost three. The Gunners suffered a lapse in form just before the new year, beginning with a 1-1 draw at Anfield in which they surrendered the lead, conceding an equaliser to Mo Salah. A draw away at Liverpool was a good result, but they followed it up with two defeats, meaning they lost some ground in the title race. First a 2-0 home loss against West Ham, and then Fulham came from behind to beat them 2-1 at Craven Cottage.

        Their woes continued in the FA Cup, as they once again took on Liverpool, but this time lost 2-0 at home with a late own goal from Jakub Kiwior and a strike from Luis Diaz condemning Arteta’s side to a third-round exit.

        However, the winter break did the club well, as they returned last weekend with a thumping 5-0 win over Crystal Palace. Braces from Gabriel Magalhaes and Gabriel Martinelli added to a Leandro Trossard goal. On Tuesday night, Arsenal earned a 2-1 away win over Nottingham Forest via goals from Gabriel Jesus and Bukayo Saka before an 89th-minute strike by Taiwo Awoniyi made the game into a nervy finish.

        Liverpool Form Guide:

        In their last six games, Liverpool have won five games and drawn one. The Reds have been dominant during their unbeaten run and continued that at the weekend as they beat Norwich 5-2 in the fourth round of the FA Cup. This was also the first game after Jurgen Klopp announced the shock news that he will be leaving the club at the end of the season.

        This stretch of games began at this weekend’s opponents, as they beat Arsenal 2-0 in the FA Cup to set up the tie with Norwich. They enjoyed more cup success in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-finals, a 2-1 victory over Fulham putting them in the driving seat. They confirmed their place in the Wembley final with a 1-1 draw in the return leg at Craven Cottage, securing a 3-2 aggregate win. Sandwiched between these ties was an impressive 4-0 win at in-form Bournemouth, to maintain their lead at the top of the table. Two second-half braces from Diogo Jota and Darwin Nunez secured all three points.

        In the run-up to their trip to Arsenal, Liverpool hosted Chelsea at Anfield on Wednesday night and thrashed the Blues 4-1 as Diogo Jota, Conor Bradley, Dominik Szoboszlai and Luis Diaz all got on the scoresheet.

        Footy Accumulators Prediction

        In what is a massive Premier League clash, there shouldn’t be much to split the two sides. Arsenal will be rejuvenated following their huge win over Crystal Palace, whilst Liverpool are enjoying an extended unbeaten run. Both sides will be well up for it but the points will be shared. We predict: Arsenal 1-1 Liverpool
