Liverpool vs Arsenal
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 24 August 2019
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Anfield (Liverpool).
Premier League organizers seem to be determined to excite their fans right away from the initial stages of the competition. After some high profile games in the first two match-days, we are now afforded a match-up between the Reds and the Gunners. Interestingly, these two now possess the top two spots in the table and are also the only two in the tournament to boast of a 100% winning record so far – which will change for sure once the weekend is done with.
Since these two are the toppers and have won their total two fixtures, the victor in this upcoming tie will gain a massive upper hand going forward this campaign, and as such, we could expect a feisty battle.
Liverpool is aiming for glory in their domestic league, after having delivered the continental title in dramatic fashion the last season. They are aware of the challenge provided by Manchester City, and after having failed to lift the title even with 97 points last campaign, they realize that each and every match counts.
Opponents Arsenal could make life tough for the hosts though. They too are seeking a path of redemption after remaining on the sidelines for quite some time.

Liverpool vs Arsenal Prediction
Jurgen Klopp’s men appear to have no intention of stopping after the rampage they were on in 2018-19. They have started emphatically and is already at the top of the table.
Moreover, they have the home advantage for the day and have not lost at home in an official tie for the last nine months. Importantly, they made mincemeat out of the Gunners the previous occasion they hosted an h2h tie. The visitors were dealt a massive 5-1 loss that day.
On the same note, Arsenal was winless in five of their last seven away games, and against probably the best team in the world at the moment, they have all the chance in the world to falter.
Coming to goals though, match-ups between these two have always provided goal-fests. Furthermore, the top-most spot of the league standings is at stake, and as such we could expect a tough battle. Finally, 10 of the previous 12 h2h battles and 18 of the former 21 at this venue had goals from both teams and coupled with the absence of Allison Becker at the posts for the European champions, the scope for BTTS improves exponentially.
