Only days removed from their Premier League contest at Anfield, Liverpool will turn their attention to EFL Cup duties when they host Arsenal again on Thursday night.

Managing to come away with what was a fully-deserved 3-1 victory against the Gunners on Monday night and extending on their 100% start to the new campaign, Jurgen Klopp’s men have certainly laid down an early marker this time around.

On the flip side, offering very little in return during their defeat at Anfield earlier in the week, the midweek guests will be hoping their altered squad can offer them a shock immediate boost on Merseyside.

With the two sides holding a real reputation for their lively contests when they have faced off, you might be interested that remarkably, all bar one of their last 13 straight matchups across all competitions have seen over 2.5 goals by the final whistle.

With their stunning 5-5 draw at this stage of last year’s EFL Cup still living long in the memory, another high-scoring contest at Anfield can be found priced at 3/5 with William Hill.

The free-scoring Reds

Dominating large spells at Anfield on Monday night and rightfully picking up a 3-1 win, Jurgen Klopp’s defending champions have really got out the traps fast this year and have already capitalized on Manchester City’s early slip-up.

With Sadio Mane extending on his tally and summer arrival Diego Jota finding the net on his Premier League debut for the Reds, Thursday’s hosts have enjoyed quite the free-scoring run since opening the 2020/2021 campaign.

Already landing a 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge earlier in the month and one of just three sides who can boast a 100% record, they have already bagged nine top-flight strikes so far and the mood in their camp once again appears to be at a real high.

While the former Borussia Dortmund boss is expected to ring the changes much like he did last week, his fringe squad only put on an equally rampant display on their travels last week.

With the likes of starlet Curtis Jones bagging a brace in their 7-2 romp at League One Lincoln, you might be interested to know that Liverpool can be found priced at 5/6 with Paddy Power to once again bag over 1.5 goals on Thursday night.

Arsenal’s Anfield nightmare

Offering very little in return and hit with a 3-1 defeat at Anfield while on Premier League duties earlier in the week, Arsenal saw their 100% start come to an abrupt end and Mikel Arteta was the first to admit that his side are still in a rebuilding process.

Although Pep Guardiola’s former right-hand man might have seen Alexandre Lacazette extend on his early-season purple patch on Monday night, the Gunners do hold what is a worrying record away on the red half of Merseyside.

With their shocking penalties defeat away at Liverpool following their stunning 5-5 draw in last year’s EFL Cup, Thursday’s guests have now lost all six of their previous trips to Anfield across all competitions.

Although the top-four hopefuls might be expected to make a string of changes in midweek, it should also be noted that Arsenal have remarkably failed to land a single away victory at the defending top-flight champions since way back in 2012.

You might be interested to know, following on from their Anfield defeat only days ago, a similar away defeat for the Gunners can be found priced at 1/1 with 888Sport.
