Arsenal welcome champions Liverpool at the Emirates on Wednesday evening as they try to pick the pieces from the little that is left of their otherwise disastrous season.
Arsenal were left bitterly disappointed after coming up short in the North London derby against Tottenham over the weekend. They wasted quite a few chances in that game and will need to be more clinical if they are to get anything against the champions.
With City’s European competition ban overturned, they now face an even more daunting task if their ambitions to participate in European football is to materialize.
Liverpool hasn’t been particularly as devastating as they were before the break. They drew 1-1 last weekend at Anfield against Burnley to drop points at home for the first time this season. That draw dealt a huge blow to the quest to match or surpass Man City’s 100-point season tally.
They still have an opportunity to do that. But they will have to be more engaged than they have been in recent weeks.
Both of these teams badly need a win here, even if for reasons that are as far apart as heaven and earth. Whilst Arsenal are literally trying to salvage their season and at the very least try and grab a Europa Cup qualification slot, Liverpool are on a quest to chase history. They are trying to immortalize the glorious season they have had by either matching or surpassing Man City’s record of 100 points which is the all-time record that City set in the 2018-19 season. They have 93 points with three games left so they still have the chance to break or match it. With both teams determined to have a go, we are likely to have yet another thriller at the Emirates. With the quality of forwards they both possess, we are backing both teams to find the back of the net @ 1.57 with Bwin as our first betting tip for the game.
When teams have a go at each other as we expect these teams to, tension is usually heightened, 50-50 balls are closely contested and tackles that need to be made will be made. Such highly contested games often lead to more fouls committed and possibly more bookings. Bwin betting app have Over 3.5 bookings priced at 1.90. We feel there is some value here in the context of this game.
For our final betting tip, we are going for Mohamed Salah to Score at Anytime @ 2.20 with Bwin. Much has been said about his supposedly below-par season. It has been anything but. He is very much in the thick of the race for the golden boot. He’s in third place with 19 goals behind Aubameyang (20) and Leicester’s Jamie Vardy (23) going into these last 3 games. Even more importantly for Liverpool, he has 9 assists this season and has seemingly found his scoring touch in this final stretch with three goals in the five games since the resumption.
