English Premier League fans will be getting a marquee match-up on Monday night when Arsenal plays host to Liverpool.

Though it is still early in the season, the game is a crucial one for both teams. Liverpool wants a win so that they can keep pace with Manchester City at the top of the table, while Arsenal desperately needs a win to avoid starting the season 1-0-2.

Arsenal, by virtue of their home field advantage, will be the favourites on Monday night. As of this moment, Arsenal is currently listed at 1.75 to win, while Liverpool is a large underdog at 5.00. The odds of a draw currently sit at 3.50.

Arsenal will be relying on the likes of Olivier Giroud, Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil to notch tallies for them on Monday, while Liverpool will be resting their hopes on Christian Benteke and Danny Ings.

The over/under for this match is currently set at 2.5 goals, with the over going for 1.73 and the under going for 2.00. So far this season, Liverpool has scored two goals while allowing none, while Arsenal has 2 goals for and three against. Bookmakers are giving the over a slight edge in this game, so don't be surprised if you see the offenses break out a bit.
