Saturday’s Premier League action from the Emirates Stadium sees Arsenal take on Liverpool.

The Gunners winning run was ended at Selhurst Park last weekend with Luka Milivojevic’s pair of penalties earning a point for the Eagles though they did beat Blackpool in the fourth round of the EFL Cup midweek.

Another triumph for Unai Emery’s side here would see them move to within a point of both their opponents and leaders Manchester City, who host Southampton on Sunday.

Hector Bellerin is a doubt for the hosts after being substituted with a muscle issue last Sunday while the game may also come to soon for Sead Kolasinac, Nacho Monreal and Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Matteo Guendouzi is suspended.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is widely available at 7.0 (6/1) to open the scoring, with Aaron Ramsey a 14.0 (13/1) chance with Bet Victor.

The home win is as highly priced as the 4.05 (58/19) on offer from Unibet, with the visitors favourites at 1.95 (19/20) with some firms. The draw can be backed at 4.0 (3/1) with Betfair.

Liverpool thumped Cardiff City 4-1 last time out in the league – a result that has kept them joint with the Citizens at the summit with the champions ahead on goal difference.

Midfield duo Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita again miss out for the Reds though Mo Salah will play despite wearing protective strapping on his wrist this week.

The Egypt international is favourite to open the scoring at 4.5 (7/2) with several bookmakers ahead of 7.0 (6/1) shot Sadio Mane.

This fixture is no stranger to goals, with twenty-seven being scored across the last five meetings between the sides.

The points were shared in last season’s corresponding fixture, with both Alexis Sanchez and Philippe Coutinho scoring in a 3-3 thriller just before moving to pastures new.

The Merseyside outfit have scored at least three goals in each of their last five games against the North Londoners and can be backed at 3.1 (21/10) with Sky Bet to do so this time around.

Alternatively, you may be tempted to take advantage of Betfair’s offer of 4.33 (10/3) for there to be five or more goals in the game.
