Liverpool v Arsenal betting tips – Reds can down Gunners without conceding

Posted on: 26th December 2018

Not in his wildest dreams must Jurgen Klopp have thought that Liverpool would be six points clear after the Boxing Day round of Premier League matches, with the German originally concerned about staying the pace with Manchester City.

However, the Reds have stolen a march over the champions in recent weeks and they will hope to turn the screw further by beating an Arsenal side who continue to look defensively flimsy under Unai Emery.

Liverpool’s defence used to be similarly porous, although the presence of Virgil van Dijk in central defence makes the Reds rearguard look like a wall and Alisson is a significant upgrade on Simon Mignolet and Lorus Karius.

It’s hard to see the Merseyside team wobbling in this fixture against an Arsenal side who have produced some bright performances during the first half of the campaign although there have been twenty-five goals conceded thus far.

Compare that with the measly seven that have been shipped by Liverpool and you have the answer as to why the home side are challenging for the title and thirteen points better off than their opponents.

Mohamed Salah’s form has barely deviated since the campaign began and there has been some classy displays from Fabinho who will surely return to the starting line-up after being given a rest against Newcastle.

It all points not only to a Liverpool win but also a victory without conceding a goal. A clean win is something that is generally achieved at Anfield.
