Liverpool vs Arsenal betting tips: Goals galore at Anfield, plus Sadio Mane to net – Premier League predictions

GOALS are on back the menu this weekend as the Premier League continues.

And we've got betting tips for you as Liverpool prepare to face Arsenal in a mouthwatering clash under the lights on Monday night.

Liverpool vs Arsenal, Monday 8pm

A cracker under the lights is in store on Merseyside as the reigning champions welcome the Gunners.

There's already been drama with this one, as the kick-off time was moved 15 minutes earlier to ensure supporters could watch the match in the pub without it going through the new 10pm curfew.

And judging by the way the opening four matches involving these teams have panned out, fans will be in need of a drink.

Liverpool are two for two, but not without a scare against Leeds - although they were hardly troubled as ten-man Chelsea were swatted aside at Stamford Bridge.

Just a word for Thiago Alcantara as well, who came off the bench in that victory and looked the Rolls Royce he is.

At least one of these teams is losing their perfect start with Arsenal coming into the game on the back of wins over Fulham and West Ham.

You can only beat what is put in front of you, but this is the first major test of Mikel Arteta and his side this season.

And we're not convinced they'll be up to the job of ending Liverpool's seemingly endless Anfield run - despite that Community Shield triumph just a few weeks ago.

Merseyside is not a happy hunting ground for the Gunners and they last won on this ground way back in 2012.

That's seven fruitless visits in the Premier League, with Liverpool netting three or more times in SIX of those encounters.

With Jurgen Klopp's side looking impressive in front of goal again, that's how you play here.

Liverpool are a tempting 1/2 to win the game and we won't stop you from backing that, especially as the final leg in a weekend accumulator.

But far more tempting is the 5/4 you can get on over 3.5 goals.

That's been a winner the last EIGHT times Arsenal have played here, including that bonkers 5-5 draw in the Carabao Cup last season.

We don't expect Arteta to employ the same spoiling tactics that Frank Lampard used last week, which blunted the Reds until Christensen's red card.

And as such, back Liverpool to net often and early.

The Reds to score in BOTH halves should really be odds-on, so don't miss out on the 11/10 you can get right now.

Mo Salah looks like a man on a mission at the moment and has started the season just like his new haircut - sharp.

He's quite rightly priced at 5/6 to net anytime and will be popular, but we prefer Sadio Mane to score following his brace against Chelsea.

The Senegalese will get plenty of chances and 23/20 is the value pick.
