Marquee Match of the Week
It is indeed Arsenal vs Liverpool. Who is going to win in this battle of once-giants? If you want a short answer for your online betting doubts, here is it: Liverpool will be the favourite. They could win big too. Arsenal have not managed to beat Liverpool in their last five meetings. That is because Liverpool’s attack thrives against defences like Arsenal’s. The only time Liverpool get overshadowed is when they face an ultra-defensive team that park the bus in the penalty box or when they face an even better attacking team. Arsenal neither park the bus nor are more attacking than Liverpool.
The match is significant. Both these teams are tied in the points table. Whoever win will have a better chance of finishing in the top-four.
Prediction for online betting: A Liverpool win.
Other Interesting Fixtures
Chelsea travel to Merseyside this weekend to face Everton. Chelsea are third in the points table, 14 points behind leaders Manchester City. Chelsea will be looking for three easy points that would consolidate position at least at the third place. But Everton, under their new manager Sam Allardyce, have a found kind of defensive mojo. Everton will be tough to crack.
Prediction for online betting: A goalless draw.
Burnley vs Tottenham will be another interesting fixture. Burnley are actually one point ahead of Spurs, at the sixth position. Spurs will be desperately seeking a win in this match. If they adopt an all-out attacking game, they could eventually play into the hands of Burnley, who relish quick counter-attacking opportunities. This is going to be a highly entertaining match.
Prediction for online betting: A 2-2 draw.
