The third weekend of the English Premier League is still far from over, but there's no doubt that many fans are already looking forward to the Monday clash between Arsenal and Liverpool. And why shouldn't they? It's probably the most exciting of the third round matches and one that also promises a lot of fireworks given the rivalry between the two teams. Liverpool have been the better team of the two so far in this season, winning both matches and sitting pretty with a 2-0 goal record, but that's likely to change now that they will face the firepower of the Gunners.

A bet on the home victory doesn't seem to be all that good, however, as the home side does have its own flaws as far as the defense is concerned and we all know what happened to them at home in the first round, when they couldn't even score a goal against West Ham, eventually losing 0-2. Their scoring has picked up a bit since then, however, and the motivation will be on a high now that they're up against a potential top 4 contender, so Wenger will surely want to go all out in the hunt for three points.

There's no point for Liverpool to just sit back and fight for the draw either at this point of the season and a victory would allow them to stay at the very top of the table for at least another week, so the bet that we like the most is on both teams to score, which is priced at 1.80 with BetVictor. The rivalry, the occasion, and the firepower on both sides should combine into an open game with plenty of chances on both sides.
