The next team to try to defeat Arsenal will be Liverpool, who will play Arsenal on Matchday 10 action on Sunday. Arsenal is second in the standings with seven wins and one loss in their first eight games with 21 points. With a victory here, they can take the lead in the standings. Liverpool hasn’t fared well in the English Premier League this year; after seven games, they are in ninth place with just 10 points.
In the United States, viewers may watch Sunday’s match on USA Network and the USA Network app. The game will begin at 11:30 ET. Arsenal is somewhat favored to win at DraftKings Sportsbook, where the odds are +155 on the Moneyline, putting the two teams neck and neck. Liverpool follows closely behind them with a score of +170, and a draw is valued at +260.
Since defeating Newcastle 2-1 on August 31, Liverpool has gone a whole league season without recording a victory. Leandro Trossard scored a hat trick and a goal in the 83rd minute to help Brighton come from behind and earn a point against them last week in a 3-3 draw. Roberto Firmino has scored five of the 18 goals the Reds have scored this season.
At Emirates Stadium, defeating Arsenal will not be straightforward given the Gunners’ strong start to the current campaign. Early in September, they suffered their lone defeat at the hands of Manchester United, but they immediately turned things around with victories over Brentford and, most recently, a decisive 3-1 victory over Tottenham. With five goals and three assists so far this season, Gabriel Jesus continues to lead Arsenal, while Gabriel Martinelli and Martin Odegaard have each scored three goals.
The good news for Liverpool is that they haven’t suffered an EPL defeat at the hands of Arsenal since July 2020, and the Reds have triumphed in five of the last six matches. The Gunners will want to continue their winning ways as they attempt to keep up with a Manchester City squad that is currently climbing ahead of them.
It’s expected to be a close game because both teams are in need of a victory, and a draw seems like a fair result between two quality clubs. The interest appears to be the most alluring wager on the board, at a price of +260.
