Arsenal v Liverpool – H 9/7 (2.29) D 13/5 (3.60) A 9/5 (2.79)
The best thing about round 19 is that you’ll get to enjoy Premier League football starting from Friday; Arsenal will aim to take advantage of playing in front of their home crowd as they host Jurgen Klopp’s men. Both sides are almost equal on points, which is why online sportsbooks in UK remain divided on the potential winner of this battle at the Emirates.
(Take a look at our Bet365 Sportsbook review for more info.)
The Gunners sit in 5th position with 33 points, while their upcoming opponents are just one place above them on the table with a point more. What’s more interesting is Arsenal’s and Liverpool’s record at home and away, respectively. Arsenal maintain the third-best record at home in the league with 8 victories and only 1 loss, whereas Liverpool’s form away from Anfield stands at 5 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses – fourth-best away from.

That’s why we’re so divided on this match, which is why it might be best to wager on a draw with goals between the two sides, with a potential victory for Wenger’s men, which would mainly come thanks to home support.
Everton v Chelsea – H 5/1 (6.00) D 14/5 (3.79) A 4/7 (1.57)
With 25 points to their name after 18 rounds in the English top flight, Everton sit in the middle of the table, in 9th spot. It speaks volumes that over the last 5 games they’ve won 4 encounters with only 1 ending in a tie, however they will next face defending champions Chelsea, which could prove to be their biggest challenge in recent rounds.
The Blues have both lost 1 game and drawn another over the last 5 away games, so it’s no surprise their odds have been slightly lowered than usual for this matchup. They’re still naturally viewed as the favourites against the Toffees, but we wouldn’t immediately discard the home side for this match due to the recent stats.
Leicester City v Man United – H 15/4 (4.75) D 13/5 (3.60) A 3/4 (1.75)
Leicester City made history in 2016 when they clinched the Premier League title – a feat that no other has managed to do in modern-day football, especially for a club of their size. However, with Chelsea lifting the crown in 2017 and Man City leading the table undefeated this campaign, things seem to have returned to normalcy.
Over the recent away from Old Trafford, Man United have clinched 3 straight wins, and they’re expected to continue this good run against the Foxes this weekend. Providers of internet betting in UK have made this a great opportunity thanks to the increased odds for the visiting team, so don’t miss out on this match. Leicester City find themselves in 8th position with merely 26 points and a record of 4 wins in their last 5 matches, but we’re doubtful they’ll manage to get the better of Jose Mourinho’s men considering the depth in their respective squads.
