Liverpool vs Arsenal Betting Preview | 24 Aug 2019

Securing a 3-1 win over Arsenal last weekend and now the only Premier League side to hold a 100% start, Liverpool will make the trip to Turf Moor on Saturday evening.

Although Jurgen Klopp might have some defensive issues that need tweaking, the Reds have already secured their first piece of silverware in the form of the Super Cup and the mood around Anfield remains at a high.

On the flip side, while Liverpool might travel to Lancashire filled with confidence, Burnley came crashing out of the EFL Cup courtesy of a 3-1 defeat against League One outfit Sunderland and an immediate response will be called on by Sean Dyche.

However, now losing each of their last three matches against the title contenders and shipping nine goals in those three defeats, you will be interested to know that a similar result can be found at 20/23 with Ladbrokes.

A mixed start in Lancashire

While an opening weekend 3-0 victory against Southampton may have signalled an early sign of intent at Turf Moor, Burnley once again appear to have slipped back to the inconstancies that haunted them last season.

Suffering last-gasp VAR heartbreak away at Wolves last weekend and having to settle for just a point at Molineux, Head Coach Sean Dyche also saw his side come crashing out of the EFL Cup at the hands of Sunderland in midweek.

While the Clarets may have failed to win any of their last three, including a 2-1 loss away at Arsenal a fortnight ago, Dyche remains confident that his side have made a string of improvements from last season.

“We’re looking a different animal to last season, which is important at this early stage. There’s a real good energy, some good quality and some good moments.

Although Burnley might be showing some signs of inconsistency, one man who has continued to shine at the start of the 2019/2020 campaign is the red-hot Ashley Barnes.

Once again finding the net against Wolves last time out, the Austrian international already has four Premier League goals to his name and can be found at 10/3 with Ladbrokes to once again find the net on Saturday evening.

Liverpool extend their winning run

Although Head Coach Jurgen Klopp may still be waiting for his side to record a first Premier League clean sheet since opening the 2019/2020 campaign, the Reds now find themselves as the only side who can boast a 100% start to the year.

Putting in another eclectic attacking display in their 3-1 win against Arsenal at Anfield last weekend, the reigning European champions have continued on a free-scoring start to the new campaign.

Scoring nine goals in their opening three contests and with only Manchester City recording more strikes so far, one man who will undeniably spearhead any title charge on Merseyside is talisman Mohamed Salah.

Once again bagging a brace against the Gunners last time out, the former PFA Player of the Year is pencilled in at 10/11 with SkyBet to extend his goalscoring run at Turf Moor on Saturday.

With Liverpool’s German boss praising his sides “exceptional energy” in their victory at Anfield last weekend, the Reds currently hold a two-point buffer over Pep Guardiola’s side and are dreaming of clinching their first Premier League crown.

Entering September and with the Super Cup title already in the bag, you will be interested to know that Saturday’s guests can be found at 5/2 with William Hill to clinch lift their first domestic trophy come May.
