Every week feels like a monumental one for Arsenal at the moment as they edge ever-closer to their first league title since 2004.
Before the end of the season they face three trips to sides in the top eight; Newcastle, Manchester City and today’s visit to Liverpool.
They’ll need to improve on a poor record at Anfield if they’re to re-open their eight point lead over City, it’s been almost 11 years since they won there, back when boss Mikel Arteta was in the side. But they’ve seldom visited in better form, winning seven on the bounce including their last three away from home.
Jurgen Klopp probably wishes this season would just end now so that he can hit the reset button and go again next term. A top four finish looks out of reach but at the very least he’ll want to secure some kind of European football for next season.
Unlike Arsenal the Reds’ recent stats are a bit of a conundrum. They’re winless in their last three games and have failed to score in two of them but they’ve been good at home, winning five of the last six and drawing the other. They’ve also been solid defensively at Anfield and have now gone over seven hours without conceding.
The bookies can barely separate the sides and at the time of writing the Gunners are slight favourites at 13/8 to Liverpool’s 6/4.
With Jesus back and firing for Arsenal and Saka given a clean bill of health there’s plenty of firepower at Arteta’s disposal and it a fixture that often sees goals. The Gunners won by the odd goal in five when the team met earlier in the season and Over 2.5 pays 8/13 today. The aforementioned Jesus and Saka are 15/8 and 5/2 respectively to find the net.
Despite The Reds’ good defensive record Arsenal to score 2 or more looks backable at even money too – that’s something they’ve done in their last five outings.
Roy Hodgson’s return to Crystal Palace inspired a win last week but that was against a desperate Leicester City side but things might be a bit tougher at Elland Road this afternoon.
Leeds Utd have won seven of the last nine points available at home and with all four teams currently below them losing yesteday have the chance to put some distance between themselves and the relegation battle. A win today would lift them to 12th in the table, overtaking today’s opponents.
Palace will be without top scorer Wilfried Zaha and for a team that don’t score too many as it is that’s a big loss.
Leeds at 11/10 could just shade this one.
