Arsenal v Liverpool Betting Preview Sunday 14th 2016
Arsenal play hosts to Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday in the Premier League, as both teams look to get their league campaigns off with a victory.

The home side have a good recent record against the Merseysiders and are odds of  to record a victory in this clash.
Arsenal fans have endured a frustrating campaign, as boss Arsene Wenger has failed to significantly strengthen his squad. The big signing of the summer was Swiss star Granit Xhaka, who arrived from German side Monchengladbach for a fee of £34million.

The Gunners have endured frustration in their bid to sign a new striker, but the north London clubs form has been decent in pre-season.
Arsenal have a good home record against Liverpool, having suffered just two home defeats against the Reds in the Premier League in the last 16 years.

The Gunners have unsurprisingly had the better of the 24 Premier League meetings in North London, recording nine wins compared to Liverpool’s six. Nine games have also finished in draws.

Liverpool have experienced mixed results in pre-season and are underdogs to come away from this game with a win at odds of .
Unlike opposition number Arsene Wenger, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been busy in the transfer market reshaping his squad. The headline signings from the German this summer have been attacking midfielders Georginio Wijnaldum and Sadio Mane, two players who impressed in the Premier League last season.

The Reds have also allowed the likes of Martin Skrtel, Jordon Ibe and Joe Allen to leave as the Merseysiders look to mount a surprise title challenge this season.

Despite their poor recent record against Arsenal, three of the last four meetings between these two teams have been drawn, including last season when the corresponding fixture finished goalless.

Arsenal heads into this clash without a number of key players, including Per Mertesacker, Laurent Koscielny, Mesut Ozil, Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck. The likes of Aaron Ramsey, Alexis Sanchez and Jack Wilshere are also doubts for the clash.

With Giroud and Welbeck out of action, Sanchez and Theo Walcott are competing to start up front in this clash. Swiss star Granit Xhaka is set for his Premier League debut. Santi Cazorla is also in contention to start this clash.

Liverpool are without new ‘keeper Loris Karius through injury, while Lucas Leiva, Joe Gomez and Mamadou Sakho are doubts for this clash. New centre-backs Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan are competing to partner Dejan Lovren in the heart of defence.

Wijnaldum and Mane will be hoping for debuts, but they face competition for an attacking midfield role from James Milner, Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho and Adam Lallana.

Possible Arsenal team line-up: Cech, Bellerin, Gabriel (injured), Chambers, Monreal, Xhaka, Ramsey, Iwobi, Cazorla, Walcott, Sanchez
Possible Liverpool team line-up: Mignolet, Clyne, Lovren, Klavan, Moreno, Can, Henderson, Mane, Firmino, Coutinho, Sturridge

Arsenal v Liverpool Betting Tip
I can see this being a cagey early season encounter. Arsenal are missing a number of their top players courtesy of Euro 2016 and injuries, while Jurgen Klopp is still trying to figure out his best team. I predict a low-scoring draw.
