Brendan Rodgers’s side welcoming the Gunners to Anfield and our tipster is backing the Reds’ star striker to net any time
Top of the table Arsenal travel to Merseyside this weekend looking to increase their lead at the top of the Premier League before Chelsea and Manchester City play.
Brendan Rodgers’s side are currently unbeaten in their last seven matches, winning five of those games.
Liverpool haven’t beaten Arsenal in the league at home since 2007, but a victory on Saturday will see them cut the gap between the sides to just five points. Paddy Power price them at 11/10 (2.10) – or new account users can grab them at 5/2 (3.50) to take all three points.
Arsenal are currently on a fantastic run of form, winning eight of their last nine matches. Arsene Wenger’s side are still the side to catch in the league, with a solid 2-0 win against Crystal Palace on Sunday securing their spot at the top.
Despite not spending money in the transfer window, many are still tipping the Gunners to be there or thereabouts come the end of the campaign. Paddy Power price them at 12/5 (3.40) – or 11/2 (6.50) for new punters – to win the match. The same firm price the draw at 5/2 (3.50).
With both sides in sensational goalscoring form, you’d expect goals at either end in this encounter. However, the odds of 1/2 (1.50) are far too short to back. The same can be said for over 2.5 goals at 4/7 (1.57) .
With the outright result also tough to call with both sides in fine form, it’s worth looking at the goalscorer market to find a bet that stands out. Since returning from his suspension, Luis Suarez has played in nine league matches at Anfield. The Uruguayan has netted 16 goals in those games, only failing to score in one of the matches. The price of 10/11 (1.91) for him to net any time seems like a fantastic price.
