The Premier League’s two most lethal attackers will go head-to-head at Anfield on Saturday as Mohamed Salah’s Liverpool take on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s Arsenal.
Boasting 12 goals from the opening 19 fixtures at the half-way point in the campaign, Salah is William Hill’s 3/1 (4.00) favourite to open the scoring for the league leaders, and priced at just 3/4 (1.75) to grab a seventh goal in six matches.
However, Aubameyang is currently leading the race for the Golden Boot after hitting the net 13 times in the league, and on offer at 13/2 (7.50) to break the deadlock on Merseyside.
Considering his form, the Gabon international certainly offers plenty of appeal at 17/10 (2.70) anytime odds after scoring six goals in his previous seven league matches.
Neither of the two big hitters were on target in the reverse fixture at the Emirates Stadium, where Alexandre Lacazette cancelled out James Milner’s opener in an exciting 1-1 draw.
The Frenchman has scored just once in seven league games for Unai Emery’s team since that stalemate, but is available at 15/8 (2.88) to prove the hero once again in this one.
Responsible for five goals and three assists in his last six league matches against the Gunners, Roberto Firmino is a 6/5 (2.20) shot to add to his rather unimpressive return of four league goals for the season in important circumstances here.
Sadio Mane also enjoys playing against this opposition after scoring in three of his previous five encounters, and is priced at those same 6/5 (2.20) to get on target for the third meeting in a row at Anfield.
Meanwhile, nobody has scored more goals against Liverpool in the current Arsenal squad than Mesut Ozil, although he is a longer 11/4 (3.75) anytime shot after falling out of favour with Emery this season.
