Arsenal v Liverpool
English Premier League, KO 5.30pm, Live BT Sport 1
A MOUTH-WATERING clash between these two Premiership goliaths is exactly what you would want to watch on a Saturday evening. These two in-form sides meet, with another advantage from a betting perspective, having seen 27 goals in the last five recent head-to-head games.
It would be unthinkable with their styles of play to see a game like this churn out a 0-0 draw. I just can't see this happening which means a game such as this is perfect for a bet builder bet.
As ever I'll be focusing on anytime goalscorer and bookings markets in order to build my bet.
In terms of goalscorers there is a feast to pick from in each side. Mane, Salah, Firmino, Shaqiri and Sturridge are the standouts in the Liverpool side. Arsenal have Aubameyang, Lacazette, Welbeck, Iwobe, Ozil and Xhaka to choose from as their likely finders of goals.
In terms of bookings there are a number of players in each side who always seem to be on the receiving end of the referees yellow/red cards. In the Liverpool team we have Alexander-Arnold, Lallana, Van Dijk, Milner, Lovren and Mane. Arsenal's bad boys include Xhaka, Holding, Mustafi, Papastathopoulos and Torreira.
A three pick combination of any of the above in a bet builder should have a good chance but it's finding the right combination which is the really hard part. These would be my choices:
Bet Builder 1
- Salah to score
- Holding to be booked
- Xhaka to be booked
- (28-1, BetVictor)
Bet Builder 2
- Aubameyang to score
- Mane to score
- Torreira to be booked
- (25-1, BetVictor)
