Liverpool vs Arsenal
English Carabao Cup
Date: Thursday, 1 October 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Liverpool FC will face Arsenal FC just three days after beating them in the Premier League Monday night action.
English champions are known for using reserve squads and youngsters when it comes to Carabao Cup matches, which is why home win is now offered at much higher 2.00 rate in comparison to 1.55 which was the case for EPL match.
Mikel Arteta on the other hand is hungry for trophies, so we are expecting standard lineup for the Gunners. They had solid match opening at Anfield, gaining an early lead through Lacazette, but Liverpool bounced back and scored two quick goals.
Liverpool vs Arsenal Head-to-head
If we ignore the latest meeting this week, Arsenal faced Liverpool in the first official match this season – Community Shield Trophy. The Gunners were more successful, winning the match on penalties after extra-time period ended 1-1.
Arsenal also defeated Reds in the Premier League as hosts on 15th July 2-1 FT.
Sixteen out of last seventeen head to head matches between these opponents across competitions ended either Over 2.5 FT or BTTS.
Liverpool vs Arsenal Prediction
In comparison to the previous season, Liverpool’s defense looks much more vulnerable. Even though the most recent results are great, the Reds have failed to keep a clean sheet in seven out of the last eight games.
The only exception was a 2-0 win against Chelsea FC in London, but Blues had one man sent off early in that match.
Sadio Mane and Mo Salah demonstrated exceptional form, scoring three goals each so far in the Premier League.
The 3-1 loss to Liverpool was first loss of the season for the Gunners. Previously, they outplayed and defeated Fulham FC 3-0 and West Ham United 2-1.
As stated above, we are expecting Arteta to use more or less standard roster for this match as Carabao Cup might be the most realistic piece of silverware they can win this season.
