Arsenal vs Liverpool 22 December 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

USA TODAY Sports

Big game in the English Premier League this weekend as Liverpool take on Arsenal in North London. The Gunners will be at home for this game but with the amount of history involved with this fixture, I am expecting a strong performance from both sets of players.

Arsenal are not playing well and although this season is not over, a win here is very much needed to get the fans behind the club once again. This is a game that they will hope to win since a derby game at homes is something which boosts the team greatly. It is important to note that Ozil and Sanchez are starting to play well and with the duo linking up together it can only mean good things for the club.

On the other side of the coin, Liverpool are looking good again. Klopp and his men had a bad week where the Reds dropped 4 points but they followed if up with a big win and things seem to be looking good again for Liverpool. This will be a very tough game for Liverpool since they are going to be away from home and up against quality opposition. I think we can expect the Reds to compete but I see them losing against an Arsenal side that will be at home.

As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a pretty good price on Arsenal to win this game and as a result, this is the bet which I am going to suggest for this game. In addition to that, I like the under 2.5 goals since these big derbies tend to be quite a low scoring affair.

 

Pick:
