Arsenal v Liverpool

Its certainly the perfect tonic to kickoff the bank holiday weekend as these two teams both have very genuine chances of Champions League qualification, with Arsene Wenger’s side in pole position to hold off their peers and qualify for Europe.

The Gunners are in something of a purple patch at the moment, consolidating in third position in the Premier League and have won nine out of their last ten games. Their once maligned defence has stiffened up at the back, especially at home, having conceded only once in their last five at the Emirates and keeping four clean sheets.

Brendan Roger’s side have been in good form themselves, however they were brought back down to earth with a loss to rivals Manchester United at Anfield last week, after a run of 13 games unbeaten, and all the talk this week has been Raheem Sterling turning down a new £100,000 a week contract.

This has deflected attention from the Reds great run of form, and with Daniel Sturridge not 100% fit, things look stacked against the Anfield unit this time around.

No doubt it should be cracker, as these games normally are, with the Gunners looking significantly dangerous going forward, with Santi Cazorla, Alexis Sanchez, Mezut Ozil and Olivier Giroud all looking back to their best form, with the Frenchman in particular regaining his scoring touch, with six goals in his last five.

Gunners to win this one, 3-1 – just make sure you pick up the 5/1 on offer with Ladbrokes.
