Liverpool vs Arsenal: Predictions and odds

Liverpool are slight favorites against Arsenal. The Reds will be playing at home and Arsenal's last game was a complete flop. Bookmakers give the Reds -105 odds to win. The draw is the highest paying bet and is at +260 odds, so it seems that betting on the draw is not a bad idea. Meanwhile, the Gunners win is at +230 odds, not a bad bet but with the uncertainty of which version of Arsenal will play on the field.

Liverpool News

Liverpool played Shrewsbury Town in their last match and this was a home game at Anfield. The scoreline was a 4-1 win in this FA Cup encounter, with Fabinho scoring a double and Roberto Firmino and Kaide Gordon scoring the remaining goals.

The latest big news regarding Liverpool is that Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané will miss the game due to the African Cup taking place this month. In addition to the absences of the two players, Liverpool are under investigation because the first leg of the EFL Cup match was supposed to be played last week and the Reds said they did not have enough players to perform, however, it turned out that the only player who tested positive for the match was Alexander Arnold and the other players tested false positive.

Arsenal News

Arsenal's last FA Cup clash was against Nottingham Forest and the game finished in a 1-0 loss. The match was played at City Ground Stadium, with Lucas Grabban scoring the only goal of the match.

Arsenal are desperately looking for a striker and the Gunners are willing to spend big money on Dusan Vlahovic, the Serbian international who currently plays for Fiorentina. Between the transfer fee, his first season's salary and a signing bonus, Arsenal are willing to invest up to 179 million euros to bring in the striker, whose contract with Fiorentina expires in June 2023. In principle, the Serbian is not convinced of the Gunner path because of his lack of ambition.
