The Reds are in a great position after picking up eight consecutive wins.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The last low scoring match between Liverpool and Arsenal at Anfield was more than six years ago. The entertaining nature of this contest will continue since both teams carry plenty of attacking threat ahead of this game. Even if Liverpool have been quite spectacular at the back this season, Arsenal’s forward line up is capable of penetrating the same. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Mohamed Salah has a mediocre record against Arsenal after only managing to score three goals in his three games against the Gunners. It can only be classified as a mediocre record due to the high standards set by the Egyptian. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Mohamed Salah.
