Weekend Football Tips
Liverpool (2.15) v Arsenal (3.40); Draw (3.70)
League leaders Arsenal will be looking to maintain their position at the top of the table this weekend, with a trip to Champions League hopefuls Liverpool.
Arsenal have been steady if unspectacular over the last three months, winning six of their last seven matches in the Premier League, but a dangerous fixture list over the next eight weeks could ultimately define the Gunners season.
The return of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has provided Arsene Wenger’s side with a real uplift, but injuries to fellow midfielders Theo Walcott, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere and January loan signing Kim Kallstrom are likely to take a toll on the squad.
The Gunners have won eight of their 12 matches on the road this season, losing just twice, so the odds on Arsenal to avoid defeat on Saturday at 1.72 appear to offer real value.
Opponents Liverpool have failed to earn a single point from any of the three sides above them this season, a fact that will be concerning for the Reds going into this weekend’s match.
Manager Bredan Rodgers all but conceded their title challenge this season, after a 1-1 draw at West Brom, but at Anfield the Reds have won eight of their last nine matches in the Premier League.
Liverpool carry a number of defensive injuries going into this weekend’s match with Daniel Agger, Mamadou Sakho, Glen Johnson, Lucas and Jose Enrique all still sidelined, news that will be welcome to Arsenal who have managed to score two or more goals in each of their last four matches against Liverpool.
Hosts Liverpool have won just one of their last 13 meetings with Arsenal in all competitions and the current Premier League leaders look well priced to avoid defeat at Anfield in the early kick-off on Saturday.
