Having put in a devastating attacking performance against Hoffenheim in midweek, Liverpool will be aiming for more of the same when they welcome Arsenal to Anfield for Sunday’s Premier League clash.
On the scoresheet for the second time this season in that clash, Roberto Firmino is the Reds’ 9/2 (5.50) favourite with Genting to open the scoring for the second game in a row against this opposition – having also done so in last season’s 3-1 home win back in March.
The Brazilian forward has hit three goals in four matches versus Arsene Wenger’s men, and can be backed at 6/5 (2.20) anytime odds to do so once again.
However, Sadio Mane appears to offer even better value at 13/10 (2.30) considering he has scored five times in five previous appearances against the Gunners, as well both Premier League fixtures so far this season.
Having added an extra dimension to Jurgen Klopp’s frontline since arriving from Roma in the summer, Mohamed Salah is also priced at 13/10 (2.30) to find the back of the net for the third game in five.
At the other end of the pitch, Alexandre Lacazette will lead an attack looking to bounce back from a frustrating 1-0 defeat at Stoke City.
Despite having a goal harshly ruled out for offside at the bet365 Stadium, the Frenchman has scored seven goals in his last six competitive appearances for Lyon and Arsenal, and is on offer at 5/1 (6.00) to break the deadlock or 13/10 (2.30) anytime.
Considering Liverpool’s weakness at defending set pieces, Wenger may instead opt for Olivier Giroud’s superior aerial threat and strong track record in these fixtures. With five goals to his name against this opposition, Giroud could prove a wise investment at 11/8 (2.38) .
Expected to take part for the first match this season, wantaway Alexis Sanchez is available at 6/4 (2.50) to offer a reminder of his star quality by scoring a sixth goal in five Premier League appearances.
