Emirates Stadium, London, England
Key Stat: Arsenal have scored the fewest goals at home (18) of all the teams in the top nine.
Expert Verdict: This is setup to be a very intriguing game as, although Liverpool have won their previous two games, they were unconvincing in beating RB Leipzig in the Champions League and scraping a 1-0 victory away at Wolves. Arsenal have flattered to deceive on many occasions this season, however, the victory in the North London derby in their last home Premier League game will be fresh in their minds.
Considering where they were earlier in the season, it is remarkable that there are only four points separating the sides with Arsenal in ninth and last season’s runaway champions Liverpool in seventh. Liverpool will be praying that wins in their last two games have signalled them getting their season on track whilst Arsenal have slowly turned their season around and are four games unbeaten. The Premier League match takes place on April 3 and the live action at the Emirates Stadium kicks off at 20:00 local time.

Forwards:Mohamed Salah, Diego Jota, Sadio Mane
Liverpool saw off Arsenal 3-1 earlier in the season with Sadio Mane, Andy Robertson and Diego Jota cancelling out Alexandre Lacazette’s opener. Both sides have been at the top table of English football for many decades and it is no surprise to see that they have both beaten the other over 80 times with Liverpool having the edge with 91 victories. However, Arsenal have won three of the last four meetings which ended a 10 game streak without a win.
Liverpool are favourites and can be backed at 5/4 with 10Bet to win
Both sides to score has been set at 3/5 with Betway
Mohamed Salah is 21/20 with 10Bet to score at any time
At the start of the season, both sides would have hoped to be in the Champions League places for this game and a win for Liverpool could reignite that ambition. However, with Arsenal’s upturn in form, it’s very tight to call and we don’t expect either side to keep a clean sheet. Overall we are backing Liverpool to come away with a narrow but entertaining victory.
