Arsenal vs Liverpool: Top free betting tips
Arsenal are set to face Liverpool on Sunday, 4 February in what is arguably the biggest Premier League match of the season so far. Liverpool can put Arsenal out of the title race with a win while the Gunners will claw themselves to within two points of Liverpool if they take home the three points. Our Arsenal vs Liverpool prediction is for a home win in a result that will send shockwaves through the Premier League.
Match result prediction: Arsenal to win
The winter break has done Arsenal the world of good and they have returned with back-to-back victories against Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest. They are playing faster than they were prior to the break and have already beaten Man City at home this season, so they are capable of big home wins. It won't be easy, though, as Liverpool are flying but Jurgen Klopp's men did ride their luck in terms of refereeing decisions against Chelsea on Wednesday night.
Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 goals
Despite both of these teams being forward-thinking and aggressive, this has all the makings of a tense game with few chances. A lot is riding on it and Liverpool will likely come into the match thinking more about not losing rather than winning given their stronger position in the league table. The last time the two sides met, the match finished 2-0 to Liverpool and prior to that, the match finished 1-1.
Correct score prediction: Arsenal 1-0 Liverpool
Predicting Liverpool to blank is perhaps bold given their recent goalscoring form but Arsenal do have the second-best defensive record in the league. The Gunners beat Man City 1-0 at the Emirates Stadium earlier this season and we are backing them to win this one by the same scoreline.
Arsenal vs Liverpool: What the fans think
Arsenal predicted lineup vs Liverpool
Mikel Arteta took Kai Havertz out of his starting lineup for the match against Nottingham Forest and Emile Smith-Rowe took his place in midfield. Smith-Rowe played well at the City Ground and is likely to retain his place in the eleven on Sunday. Fabio Vieira could return to the matchday squad following his injury, however, Thomas Partey and Jurrien Timber are certain to miss out. Meanwhile, Takehiro Tomiyasu is still away with Japan at the Asian Cup.
Raya – White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko – Rice, Smith-Rowe, Odegaard – Saka, Jesus, Martinelli
Liverpool predicted lineup vs Arsenal
Liverpool were expected to struggle without Mo Salah but Diaz, Nunez and Jota have formed a formidable front three in his absence and the trio will start again on Sunday provided Nunez passes a fitness test. Salah himself is back from AFCON but nursing a hamstring injury. Other absentees for Liverpool include Matip, Endo, Tsimikas and Thiago while Klopp has a decision to make on Connor Bradley who has shone in recent weeks.
Alisson – Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson – Mac Allister, Szoboszlai, Jones – Jota, Nunez, Diaz

Liverpool fans would take a point
Beat Arsenal on Sunday and they’re out of the title race.
Draw would be fine, even though I’m well aware City are on the march.
Lose and it will hurt, but even if it happens, a special season will still feel very possible.

How far will Liverpool fans travel to the Emirates Stadium?
Liverpool fans will have a long trip down south on Sunday but it isn't a trip they won't be looking forward to given how their team is currently playing. By car or coach, the journey will take around four hours down the M6 and M1 but by train, the journey will take around 90 minutes less. The travelling Reds can get a direct train from Liverpool Lime Street to London Euston before switching to an underground service to Highbury & Islington.
