Arsenal vs Liverpool FA Cup prediction
With the wheels seemingly coming off their Premier League title chase, Arsenal will be looking for redemption when they host Liverpool in the biggest game of the 3rd round of the FA Cup this Sunday. The Gunners had the dubious honor of being top of the table at Christmas only to see the tables turn on them in the cruelest of ways as they dropped to 4th on New Year after losing back-to-back London derbies at home to West Ham and away at Fulham.
Amid all the realignments and games of musical chairs in the Premier League this season, Liverpool appear to have emerged out of the ashes and have staked their claim as true contenders with an impressive run of results that has seen them move to the top of the standings with a three-point cushion over the chasing pack. A 4-2 win over Newcastle on New Years cemented their stranglehold at the top as they threw the gauntlet at the other title challengers. They will now train their guns on this competition but a trip to Arsenal is no walk in the park, especially now that they will be without their Egyptian magician Salah, who is off to represent his country in AFCON.
A lot is riding on this clash. The two teams were not really expecting to face off at this early juncture but that is what the luck of the draw handed them and they have to deal with it regardless. They shared the spoils in the league at Anfield just prior to Christmas. We expect both teams to throw haymakers at each other in this match which should be quite entertaining for the neutrals. Corners have been a staple feature of this fixture and we expect plenty of it here. For our opening Arsenal vs Liverpool prediction, we are going for Over 9.5 Corners

Prediction 2: 1st Goal – Arsenal
Despite their recent struggles, Arsenal have still been quick off the blocks in most of their matches this season. Even in that last loss to Fulham, they had actually scored the opening goal of the match.
At Anfield when these teams drew 1-1, again it was Arsenal that scored the opener.
At home, the Gunners have been in stupendous form, winning 7 of their last 8 matches. In all those 7 games they scored first.
We fancy Arsenal to go all out right from kickoff and we are backing them to score the opening goal of this match with great odds for this option offered at Paripesa

As already outlined, the recent Arsenal struggles are an exception rather than the rule or as they will tell you, a storm in a teacup.
The Gunners have been sweeping aside competition in their backyard. They have won 9 of their last 12 matches at the Emirates.
