Betting Tip: Arsenal @ 8/5 with bet365

Jurgen Klopp has bemoaned the hectic fixture schedule handed to Liverpool, with the Reds involved in four different competitions right now.

Europa League duties are on hold, although Premier League matches come thick and fast, while Liverpool are on the verge of reaching the Capital One Cup final and also in the hat for the FA Cup fourth round.

It’s barely a surprise that a few players have sustained injury and the Merseyside team are effectively missing their best two players in Jordan Henderson and Philippe Coutinho. The former will be on the bench for this clash but he’s not match-fit.

Klopp will have to improvise against an Arsenal side sitting top of the Premier League and ready to impose themselves at Anfield, with Mesut Ozil looking to get on the ball and make things happen for the visitors.

Alexis Sanchez is not yet fit enough to take his place in the squad, although there are plenty of options including Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Olivier Giroud in the attacking positions.

Joel Campbell is also starting to prove his worth and this is an Arsenal side who are defensively robust and ready to stake their claim as champions.

Therefore, we think the 8/5 about the visitors represents a spot of value and think the London side could have the edge, especially as the Liverpool defence is missing Mamadou Sakho and Dejan Lovren.

It could be a gruelling evening for Kolo Toure when he lines up against his former club, with Lucas Leiva potentially partnering him as a centre-half.
