It is not a happy time to be a Reds supporter, with just two wins in 2017 an inexcusably poor record.
The 3-1 defeat to Leicester was horrendous to watch, and having been in the title race at one point, a top-four finish is now genuinely unlikely.
There are endless bets available ahead of the showdown on Merseyside – here are some of the best, provided by 888Sport.
As is often the case with matches between the Premier League‘s top six clubs, this is a very tricky match to predict.
The bookies have Liverpool down as the favourites at 11/10, although home advantage is the main reason for that. However, 888Sport are offering 4/1 on a Liverpool victory — click here to get these odds!
The draw is 13/5, which when you consider the last two clashes on Liverpool’s home turf have ended all square, looks the best bet of the three.
The Brazilian often comes to the fore when there is space to wreak havoc, though, so backing him to score anytime (11/5) is worth your while. He registered a double against the Gunners in last season’s 3-3 draw.
It really is impossible not to see goals in this match, with both sides attack-minded in their approach and leaky in defence.
Backing over 2.5 (19/25) goals seems an excellent bet, and over 3.5 (39/20) also has a fair chance of happening. Don’t forget the two teams played out a 4-3 thriller back in August, with Liverpool coming out on top.
The odds for there to be a goal in both halves (3/5) look generous, so make sure you don’t miss out on it. The opposite, with at least one half being goalless, is 7/5.
Matches of this ilk can often be spicy affairs, meaning red cards are never too far away. Sticking a small amount on there being a sending off (19/5) would be strongly advised.
