Arsenal v Liverpool correct score betting: Key trends

We have taken a look at Arsenal v Liverpool correct score betting markets ahead of their clash at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The hosts are third on the table, five points behind visitors Liverpool, who know that a win could effectively put the Gunners out of the title race.

On the other hand, Arsenal know that victory would close the gap at the top to just two points, and would put them firmly in contention for the title alongside Manchester City. The H2H record shows that the Gunners have only won 80 meetings between them, with the Reds winning 94, and there being 64 draws.

They met at the Emirates just last month in the FA Cup, where Liverpool ran out 2-0 winners with two late goals, as Arsenal squandered plenty of chances in the first half.

Nonetheless, this game should be exciting with both teams battling to take a precious three points, and we have provided some key trends that have occurred in recent encounters that should be taken into account when looking into correct score betting markets.
