This weekend all roads will be headed to Anfield when Liverpool take on Arsenal in this weekend’s much anticipated derby. This match is expected to draw a lot of attention owing to the two sides’ standings. This match will take place on Saturday 24th August 2019 starting 19:30 GMT.
Liverpool has started the season with a thud having won all its two matches against the likes of Norwich City and Southampton. They are expected to continue with their good performance against Arsenal. The title chasing team seems to have its future figured out with the likes of Sadio Mane rowing the boat. Sadio Mane opened his scoring count in their 2-1 triumph over Southampton and is expected to continue the count against Arsenal as well.
Arsenal, on the other hand, has shown its intent of being in the Premier League title race having won their starting two games. Their impressive win over the likes of Newcastle United and Burnley is a precursor to a good season for the Gunners. However, owing to the Gunners’ standing against Liverpool, we are yet to be convinced that they can withstand their football tricks.
With David Luis in the defense for Arsenal and Sadio Mane in attacking for the Reds, we are going to be treated to the most enticing match of the season. A man to watch for the home team is Sadio Mane while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is likely to cause trouble for the home team. Nevertheless, we believe it will be hard for Unai Emery to Outclass Jürgen Klopp, meaning at the end of the day Unai Emery will walk home empty-handed. It is therefore important to bet for the home team to emerge victorious.
