The Daily Acca: Foxes to score at the Etihad

Leicester to breach the City defence

Bet 1: Back Man City & BTTS @ 6/4 – KO 16:30 BST

Pep Guardiola’s side have started well by winning at Wolves in the league and then beating Bournemouth in the cup.

Last year’s runners-up failed to keep clean sheets in either of those two matches though, and it is no secret that City are better going forward than they are at defending.

The Foxes were knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Arsenal in midweek, but they fielded a second string XI, presumably with this match in mind.

Brendan Rodgers‘ team have begun their league campaign with two wins – scoring seven goals in the process. They will likely come up short today, but I certainly fancy them to score a goal.

Hammers to remain pointless

Bet 2: Back Wolves @ 11/10 – KO 19:00 BST

Wolves have played two – winning one and losing one so far this term. They did also lose in the cup, but they were far from full-strength.

Nuno Espírito Santo’s side are again looking like European contenders this season, and they looked impressive on their only away trip to date – winning 2-0 at Bramall Lane.

They go to West Ham this evening, with the Hammers coming off the back of a 5-1 Carabao Cup win over Hull. They have lost both of their Premier League matches so far though, and David Moyes’ team still appear vulnerable.

Italian giants to share the points

Bet 3: Back The Draw in Roma v Juventus @ 13/5 – KO 19:45 BST

Roma drew their opening Serie A match of the campaign, but following an investigation into the listing of Amadou Diawara, their opponents, Verona, were awarded the game 3-0.

Paulo Fonseca and his players will no doubt be smarting from that, and I expect them to be well up for this clash with Juventus.

Andrea Pirlo was a controversial pick as manager of the Old Lady, given his very limited experience in a managerial role.

He started well with a 3-0 home win against Sampdoria, but this will be a much sterner test, and a draw wouldn’t be too bad a result for him.

Liverpool v Arsenal Tips: Reds can roll over improving Gunners

Liverpool impress at Stamford Bridge

Liverpool delivered a powerful statement of intent about their desire to retain the Premier League title with a comfortable dismissal of Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last weekend. Jurgen Klopp‘s champions were in complete control even before Blues defender Andreas Christensen was correctly shown a red card on the stroke of half-time.

Sadio Mane punished Chelsea with two swift goals after the break to confirm Liverpool’s vast superiority. New £20m signing Thiago Alcantara, on as a half-time substitute, did give the Blues a lifeline from the penalty spot but Alisson saved his spot-kick to ensure a comfortable afternoon for the Merseysiders, who are two from two to start the season.

It was a satisfying afternoon for Klopp, who was without both Joe Gomez and Joel Matip. Fabinho was used at the heart of the defence alongside Virgil van Dijk and will be an option again for Monday night should Gomez fail to recover in time. Skipper Jordan Henderson should be available, whilst new signing Diego Jota is also expected to be involved.

Arsenal scrap late home success

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta praised his side’s mental strength after Eddie Nketiah‘s late winner maintained the North Londoners’ 100% start to the season with a 2-1 win against West Ham. The Gunners largely controlled the opening stages of the contest and deservedly went ahead when Alexandre Lacazette headed in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s cross.

However, the Hammers, who always looked dangerous on the counter-attack, levelled just before the interval when Michail Antonio bundled in. While Arsenal continued to enjoy more of the ball after the break, West Ham created the better openings but, Nketiah’s late tap-in from a Dani Ceballos pass ensured Arteta’s outfit of maximum points at The Emirates.

Kieran Tierney was withdrawn late on and replaced by Sead Kolasinac after feeling an issue in the warm-up. The Scottish international is expected to be fit enough to feature at Anfield with David Luiz also back to full fitness and available for selection. Arteta looks likely to persist with his 3-4-3 system with Aubameyang and Willian flanking Lacazette in attack.

Arsenal are winless at Anfield since 2012 (W0-D2-L5) but the Gunners head to Merseyside having avoided defeat in both meetings with Liverpool under Mikel Arteta’s tutorship. The capital club enjoyed a smash-and-grab success at The Emirates towards the end of last season and followed that victory up with a win on penalties in the Community Shield.

But Liverpool [1.50] remain well worthy of their short price for Monday’s match-up. The Reds have picked up a huge 202 points from a possible 234 since the start of 2018/19, earning 64 wins from 78 in that sample. Jurgen Klopp’s troops have suffered only four defeats in that time, half of which arrived after the Merseysiders were crowned champions.

Arsenal [6.60] have undoubtedly improved under Arteta’s watch. The Gunners are playing with composure and character, whilst showcasing a much more unified proposition in defensive areas. Nevertheless, the visitors finished a whopping 43 points behind Liverpool last season and bridging that gap appears an impossible task for the time being.

Goals tend to be rife when Liverpool and Arsenal lock horns with Both Teams To Score (1.65) banking in 14 of the past 16 head-to-head meetings across all competitions. A repeat on Monday night is too short to support but combining both sides to get on the scoresheet alongside a Liverpool win is well worth considering at 2.70 quotes on Betfair Sportsbook.

The Reds were put under pressure by both Leeds and Chelsea with enterprising balls over either full-back and Arsenal do possess the pace and clinical attitude to make their mark when opportunities arise. However, it’s difficult to see the Gunners keeping Liverpool quiet with the hosts scoring at least three goals in their last five Anfield encounters with Arsenal.
