Liverpool vs Arsenal Free Betting Tips – Premier League
Winner of the Champions League in 2019, Liverpool confirmed last year by winning the Premier League title, the 1st since 1990. The Mersey club left no chance to their opponents and easily finished in the 1st place in the standings with a comfortable 18-point lead over his runner-up. Before starting this 2020/2021 exercise, the Reds lost the Community Shield to Arsenal (1-1, defeat following penalties). Subsequently, they upheld the hierarchy by winning their 2 league games played against the attractive promoted Leeds (4-3) and in the lair of a direct competitor, Chelsea, last weekend (0-2 ). This week, a very reorganized team qualified for the 8th finals of the Carabao Cup following its large victory at Lincoln (2-7).
Arsenal disappointed a lot last year by finishing an insufficient 8th place in the Premier League with 10 points behind the Big 4. The Gunners on the other hand saved their season by winning the FA Cup against Chelsea, thus snagging a ticket for the Europa League. After a period of adaptation, Mikel Arteta seems to have established his playing philosophy which is obviously very similar to his mentor Pep Guardiola. This season, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s partners first won the Community Shield against Liverpool (1-1, victory following penalties). They then won at the promoted Fulham (0-3) and against West Ham (2-1) during the first 2 days of the championship. In the middle of the week, Arsenal confirmed their good arrangements by winning over Leicester in the round of 16 of the Carabao Cup (0-2).
The workforce for Liverpool vs Arsenal
Liverpool will have to do without the English internationals Joe Gomez and Oxlade-Chamberlain, injured but also facing their captain Henderson who has relapsed. Liverpool has been active on the transfer market this summer and have recruited Greek side Tsimikas, Portuguese winger Diogo Jota (Wolverhampton) but above all metronome Thiago Alcantara (Bayern Munich). The latter has already dazzled everyone last weekend by playing 45 minutes. The inseparable Salah (3 goals), Mané (2 goals), and Firmino are already showing very good form. Behind, Fabinho could start behind again alongside van Dijk. Liverpool did not lose a major player but saw 2 experienced elements leave who did not play much anymore: defender Dejan Lovren (31 years old, Zenit) and attacking midfielder Adam Lallana (32 years old, Brighton).
6 elements are lacking at Arsenal for this shock: they are defenders Mustafi and Sokratis, promising Mari and Martinelli, and the usual substitutes Chambers and Smith Rowe. 2nd top scorer in the Premier League last year, Aubameyang hesitated to leave this summer but he finally stayed well thanks, in part, to Arteta. He will be aligned on the front of the attack with rookie Willian (ex Chelsea) and Lacazette. Former Stéphanois Saliba has not yet appeared in the league group and has not entered the Carabao Cup this week. On the other hand, the former Lille native Gabriel immediately won behind.
