Liverpool & BTTS – 8/5 with Bet 365

Team news
Trent Alexander Arnold is sometimes left out against stronger opposition and the full-back could find himself on the bench here.

Liverpool rotated the midfield trio against Southampton and their strongest side is likely to be selected.

Nicolas Pepe could come into the XI here after an impressive cameo last time out.

Granit Xhaka missed the Burnley victory through injury, but he could be risked here if fit enough.

Expected starting XI’s
Liverpool (4-3-3): Adrian; Gomez, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Wijnaldum, Fabinho, Henderson; Salah, Firmino, Mane
Arsenal (4-3-3): Leno; Maitland-Niles, Sokratis, Luiz, Monreal; Guendouzi, Xhaka, Ceballos; Pepe, Lacazette, Aubameyang
