Premier League betting preview: Liverpool v Arsenal
League leaders Arsenal seem to have put their embarrassing 4-0 defeat at Southampton on Boxing Day behind them, as they marched one step closer to the title with two home wins - 2-0 against Bournemouth and 1-0 win against Newcastle.
The Gunners travel to Anfield this evening ahead of tonight's big clash.
Arsene Wenger's side go into this fixture knowing that they have not lost a match against Liverpool in all competitions since early 2014 – four matches.
Liverpool have struggled to find their feet so far in the league and Jurgen Klopp’s team have been shaken by a 2-0 defeat at West Ham earlier this month.
They suffered a 3-0 hammering against newly-promoted Watford which followed a 2-0 defeat to an optimistic Newcastle last month.
Victory against the Gunners however could be the start of a promising second half to the campaign.
Martin Skrtel and Dejan Lovren are ruled out with thigh injuries, but Klopp will be happy to welcome Kolo Toure and Mamadou Sakho back into defence.
Philippe Coutinho, Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge are also absent with hamstring problems, while Joe Gomez and Danny Ings are missing with long-term knee injuries.
Arsenal will be without Jack Wilshere, Francis Coquelin, Danny Welbeck and Santi Cazorla.
Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez just misses out on the fixture after almost recovering from a hamstring injury.
Playmaker Mesut Ozil will be on hand to string balls and to create assists after he was rested for the FA Cup third-round match at home to Sunderland last week.
An Arsenal win comes at a best price of 33/20 with Bwin and that may prove to be where the smart money lies if Liverpool are unable to create enough chances.
The best odds for a Liverpool win come at 47/25, courtesy of Totesport, Betfred and Coral.
Arsenal's pace upfront makes them a threat in this fixture.
If the likes of Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott produce a good performance, then Arsenal will be placed to win the race to two goals, at a best price of 47/25, with William Hill.
