Liverpool v Arsenal
English Premier League
Sunday, 13 December 2009
Kickoff: 16:00 GMT
Who can forget this game last season? A 4-4 thriller including all four Arsenal goals coming from Andrey Arshavin, some Liverpool fans will tell you these were Arsenal’s only four chances in the whole game yet they still couldn’t hold onto the lead.
Paddy Power go 350/1 for another 4-4 epic this weekend and if you sign up and place your first bet of £10 they’ll give you another £20 for you to bet on anything you like. There’s no catches or bonuses it’s a straight free £20.
Both teams need the points and both teams have had enough injuries to last a life time this season. So who’s going to be laughing hardest at 6 o’clock on Sunday? Well history suggests that home advantage is key when these two play; Liverpool have won three from the last five, drawing the last two at Anfield whilst Arsenal have also won three and drawn two of the last five at The Emirates. That brings Paddy Power’s 9/4 on another draw into play as both teams won’t want to lose.
6/5 Liverpool win
23/10 Arsenal win
Arsenal have lost to United, Chelsea and City which has reigned in their title aspirations whilst Liverpool seem to have lost too much ground too early for them to win the title yet beat United. Everyway you look it keeps coming back to being a draw is the best of both worlds for these teams.
Torres is back but how fit is he? Arsenal have no strikers so have deployed Arshavin as the shortest target man in league history. Which means both teams will be looking to their inspirational captains Steven Gerrard and Cesc Fabregas to turn in a winning performance.
Paddy Power Money-Back Special – Oh Captain My Captains
If Steven Gerrard or Cesc Fabregas score the last goal in this match Paddy Power will refund all losing 1st/last goalscorer, correct score and scorecast bets on the match!
So Fernando Torres will make his long awaited return from injury, he’s 9/2 for the first goal whilst Gerrard lovers will be please to hear Paddy Power are the standout best price on him opening the scoring at 13/2. For The Gunners it’s all about Arshavin and Fabregas if they can get the team moving and pull holes in Liverpool then they could be the ones celebrating; Arshavin is 7/1 for the first whilst Fabregas is available at 10’s, again best price with Paddy Power.
