Reasons for betting on Liverpool vs. Arsenal tip
The ultimate derby of this round is going to take place at Anfield Road in Liverpool. The hosts are anxious to meet with Arsenal and record the first major win of the year. After successful qualifications in the Champions League, Liverpool’s morale is a bit boosted. Meanwhile, Arsene Wenger needs to come up with a solution how to strengthen his team and improve the overall performance.
Although it is still early, this game might decide many things at the end of the year.
A fantastic match against Hoffenheim 4-2, indicated that things at Anfield are improving. It was the third straight victory for the Reds and the 4th game in a row without a defeat. Everything was functioning correctly against the Germans, but the encounter against Arsenal will be much more dangerous. Liverpool plays, as we all know, very efficient matches. 4 of the previous 5 ended with over 2.5 goals., and both teams have scored in 5 of the last 6 contests. However, there are two problems bothering Jurgen Klopp. The first one is the status of Philippe Coutinho. Brazilian international still has ”back issues” as he liked to say. The truth is, that he wants to go to Barcelona and that matter hasn’t been resolved yet. The second problematic situation is the fact that the defense is pretty fragile. If Virgil Van Dyke does not sign until the end of the transfer window, Liverpool will have many troubles in future. Adam Lallana is still injured, and same goes for Nathaniel Clyne.
The same situation is with Arsene Wenger. Arsenal defense is terrible. With the constant rotations and injuries, the French manager got into the position where he has to put some players in the positions where they don’t belong. Also, one other similarity with Liverpool is the fact that they too, have unsettled major star. Alexis Sanchez is refusing to play because allegedly he wants to join Paris Saint-Germain. All these problems are reflecting negatively on the pitch and Arsenal lost the previous match to Stoke with a minimal result. In the opening two rounds of English Premier League, the Gunners allowed 4 goals. The ultimate proof for our claim regarding the defense is the fact that they conceded at least one goal in the previous 8 consecutive games !! Wenger’s boys also allowed the opening goal in 5 of the latest 6 contests. Per Mertesacker is better, and he might start this match.
