The Premier League title race is the focus of attention on Easter Sunday as it’s Liverpool vs Arsenal in a 4:30pm BST kick-off at Anfield. Games like this can go a long way to deciding the destination of the league trophy, so let’s look at the Premier League betting tips for this epic clash.
Reds to Bounce Back at Home?
It’s now 3 league matches without a win for Liverpool and it’s no surprise that this downturn in results has come with Jurgen Klopp’s men playing all three of those games on the road. The Reds have only picked up 3 wins from their 15 league games on their travels this season so far. Fortunately for them, their home form is much more encouraging with 9 wins from their 13 home league matches this season. It certainly makes their price to win here of 15/8 with Betway appealing.
Influential centre-back Virgil Van Dijk is looking set to make a return to the first team after missing the 0-0 draw away to Chelsea through illness. He could be a decent shout to score a header at 14/1 with Sporting Index. Given the fact that Mohamed Salah is rumoured to have missed training this week and scored the club’s only goal in their last 4 competitive games means set-pieces could be a way for Liverpool to penetrate the Arsenal back-line.
Gunners in Seven Heaven
An incredible league season continues to go on for Arsenal with the Londoners currently sitting top of the table and 8 points clear of 2nd placed Manchester City. Mikel Arteta’s men are now firm favourites at 8/11 with Betfred in the Premier League title odds market. It’s been 7 league wins in a row for the Gunners and the performances have matched the convincing results.
Away form has held strong for Arsenal this season with 11 wins coming from their 14 away league matches. The team have won 6 of their last 7 away league games including taking all 3 points in their past 3 away trips in the league. It’s also been impressive to see the club score at least 3 goals in 6 of their previous 7 league matches including scoring 4 goals on 4 occasions in that run.
It certainly makes backing an Arsenal player such as Gabriel Jesus at 21/10 with Paddy Power, Gabriel Martinelli at 13/5 with Bet365, or Bukayo Saka at 13/5 with William Hill very attractive propositions as anytime scorers. The last of those bagged 2 goals against Liverpool earlier in the season so looks great value.
History Books Hint at Anfield Aura
This fixture has a thrilling history to it. You only need to think back to classic encounters such as when Arsenal stole the title from under the noses of Liverpool at Anfield with a 2-0 win back in 1989, the dramatic 2-1 win in the 2001 FA Cup Final for Liverpool, and the rollercoaster ride of a 4-4 draw in the league in 2009.
It was Arsenal who prevailed as 3-2 winners at the Emirates Stadium in the reverse fixture in October. That was not only Arsenal’s first win over Liverpool in 6 encounters but they had also failed to even score against Liverpool in the previous 5 matches. I’m expecting a game of utter carnage here with the stakes increased and the pressure higher. Mistakes will happen. Nerves will jangle. Both teams will score. However, I think Arsenal look like the team best positioned to get the win.
