Liverpool vs Arsenal Bet Builder Tips
Jurgen Klopp’s side played out a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday evening in another mediocre performance. It’s been a frustrating season for the red half of Merseyside and after a defeat at Manchester City last weekend and that trip to the capital, they round off a challenging eight days with Arsenal’s visit to Anfield.
Fabinho is the first player we want to highlight for our Bet Builder selections on Sunday and we are siding with him to pick up a card off referee Paul Tierney. In the 2020/2021 season no top-flight referee had a higher average yellow card per-game figure than Tierney with 3.91. He then followed that up with 3.81 yellows per-game last season and in our eyes he remains one of the better officials for dishing out the cards.
Across his last seven Premier League appearances, Fabinho has collected five yellow cards. In total he has seven to his name this season and going a bit further, he has had those against many of the better sides in the league in Man City, Man Utd, Chelsea and Newcastle. The Brazilian has also been carded in cameo appearances off the bench in both the FA Cup and League Cup this season.
Bukayo Saka has had a sensational season for his employers, in very much in contrast to Fabinho for Liverpool. Saka has 22 goal contributions in the league in 2022/2023, unsurprisingly his best return of his short career and he is now just 2/1 to win the PFA Young Player of The Year Award.
12 of Saka’s contributions this season have been goals and we are backing him to score another at Anfield. Five of the 21-year-olds league goals this season have arrived in his last seven league starts and his form in front of goal in these final few weeks of the campaign could well prove pivotal to Arsenal going all the way. Combining Saka to score and Fabinho to be carded pays 9/1 with BoyleSports.
