Liverpool vs Arsenal: Top free betting tips

Liverpool take on Arsenal on Saturday 3 December in the biggest Premier League match of the season so far. Only one point separates Arsenal in first and Liverpool in second so the winner will have the honour of being top of the league on Christmas Day. With so much on the line, our Liverpool vs Arsenal prediction is for the Gunners to record a statement victory to take firm control of the title race.

Match result prediction: Arsenal to win

Arsenal go into the match on top of the Premier League table and they have reached the position without ever getting out of second gear. They will need to on Saturday if they are to beat a Liverpool who side who have won seven games out of eight at Anfield this season but there are signs that this Arsenal team are growing up and ready to step up. No side has a better win percentage away from home than the Gunners and we are backing them to build on that at Anfield.

Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 goals

Over the years, this fixture has been a goalfest but something tells us that this one won't play that way. Arsenal have been tightening things up in big games this season with just one goal being scored in their recent matches against Newcastle and Man City. Liverpool, meanwhile, played out a bore 0-0 draw with Man Utd at Anfield last weekend in a match where their forwards looked out of ideas.

Correct score prediction: Liverpool 0-1 Arsenal

Some of the most impressive wins in Premier League title races over the years have been 1-0 victories and we are calling another one here for Arsenal. Liverpool's performance against West Ham in the Carabao Cup may have been impressive but the way they froze against Man Utd last weekend weakens their title credentials.

Liverpool predicted lineup vs Arsenal

Jurgen Klopp went pretty strong in the week for Liverpool's Carabao Cup clash against West Ham with the likes of van Dijk, Szoboszlai and Nunez all playing from the start. Mo Salah, who came off the bench to score, will go straight back into the starting lineup on Saturday as will Trent Alexander-Arnold who has been brilliant all season. Curtis Jones may well have played his way into the starting lineup after his performance on Tuesday which could mean a place on the bench for Ryan Gravenberch.
