Bet of the day: Giroud strikes in Arsenal win over Liverpool
Lee Gormley | January 12, 2016
Coral’s bet of the day
- Arsenal have lost only one of last nine Liverpool meetings
- Olivier Giroud struck in both fixtures last season
- Hosts suffering from severe injury problems
- Gunners flying high at table’s summit
Giroud 7/2 to score anytime in Arsenal win
Arsenal have been in flying form so far this season on their way to the summit of the Premier League table and, as part of Coral’s bet of the day, you can back them at 7/2 to beat Liverpool and Olivier Giroud to score anytime (£20 max stake).
Arsene Wenger’s Gunners will be extremely confident of gaining three points in their midweek trip to Anfield, having rallied to a dominant record over their Merseyside opponents in recent campaigns.
The north Londoners have lost on just one occasion in their previous nine match-ups with Liverpool across all competitions, and another away triumph looks likely this time around with a host of beneficial factors on their side.
Injuries hurting Reds attempts
Liverpool have a major injury crisis in their squad, with German coach Jurgen Klopp without many of his key Anfield stars for this crucial home encounter with league leaders Arsenal.
Divock Origi recently joined the likes of Danny Ings and Daniel Sturridge as attacking casualties, while Martin Skrtel and Dejan Lovren are defensive absentees, with Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Jordon Ibe all slight doubts too.
With such a weakened side, especially in the rearguard, in-form France international frontman Olivier Giroud will be licking his lips in anticipation for his visit to the red half of Merseyside.
Giroud gunning for further goals
The deadly Frenchman has been in sublime form this current campaign, shrugging off previous criticism from the likes of Thierry Henry, to fire Arsenal to the summit of domestic proceedings and into the Champions League knockout stage.
As well as his current club form, Giroud also holds a great record in this fixture, following his strikes against Liverpool during both Premier League meetings last term, helping secure four points from those encounters.
With the towering targetman enjoying such a clinical streak, make sure you back him to score again and add to his 18 goals in an Arsenal victory over Liverpool at an incredible 7/2 (£20 max stake).
