Contenders have a streak of at least four wins. The last two face-to-face meetings were won by Arsenal. 6 of the last 10 matches have been drawn or won with a minimum score. Arsenal won their last three away games in a row. The last personal match ended with a victory for Arsenal (2:1).
The Lersisides traditionally started the new football season of England with a duel for the Super Cup, in which they lost to today's opponent in a penalty shootout (1:2).
The start of the new championship for Jurgen Klopp's charges turned out to be successful. Hosts beat Leeds (4:3) and Chelsea (2:0) in the Premier League. In the 1/16 finals of the League Cup, The Reds left no chances for Lincoln (7:2).
Among the champion's newcomers, one cannot fail to note the transfer from Bayern Munich to Thiago for 30 million euros and Diogo Jota from Wolverhampton (44.7 million).
Matip, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Henderson and Milner will not be able to take part in today's game.
Arsenal kicked off the new football season with a Super Cup win, after which they have never been defeated. In the 2020/21 Premier League, Mikel Arteta's charges defeated Fulham (3:0) and West Ham (2:1), which brought the maximum result at the start of the Premier League tournament. In the League Cup, the “red-whites” made it to the 1/8 finals, beating Leicester away (2:0), for which we made a forecast.
Of the newcomers, one cannot fail to note the strengthening of the defense line, where Gabriel from Lille came for 26 million and Pablo Marie from Flamengo (8.0 million).
In the infirmary of the team are Martinelli, Mustafi, Smith Row, Chambers, Soares and Tierney. The exit of Socrates is in question.
Most likely, we will have a traditional battle on a collision course, which will bring a lot of struggle and scoring chances. We assume that today the capital's team will not hit its face in the mud and, at least, will not lose big.
Our prediction is that Arsenal will win with a handicap (+1.5) and we bet on it using the 1xBet bookmaker's line with odds of 2.28
