Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
Liverpool and Arsenal face each other for the second time in just four days as they go head to head in the EFL Cup last 16. The Reds are seen as No. 1 favourites to win the Premier League, but Jurgen Klopp is likely to use the EFL Cup to rest first-team regulars. Anyhow, the hosts are likely to find the net in Thursday’s showdown regardless of which players will be deployed in the starting XI.
The Gunners, on the other hand, did well to beat Leicester City on the road in their EFL Cup opener, and given their attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Whenever Liverpool and Arsenal face each other in a competitive match, a football festival is guaranteed. In their last meeting in the EFL Cup the two teams played out a thrilling 5-5 draw after 90 minutes, with the Reds winning the match on penalties.
