Liverpool host Arsenal in the first Premier League game of the weekend at Anfield on Saturday and Freebets.com look at the pick of money back offers available on the televised match.
The hosts were held to a 1-1 draw away at West Brom last weekend and will be eager to resume winning ways to hold on to the all-important fourth spot, while the Gunners moved back to the top of the table with a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace as title-favourites Manchester City were beaten at home by third-placed Chelsea. Liverpool lost 2-0 in the reverse fixture earlier this season, but since then the SAS partnership of Suarez and Sturridge have been wreaking havoc and the duo will provide Arsenal’s watertight defence with the ultimate test.
We’ve taken a look at what’s on offer at leading online bookmakers and give you an evaluation of the best money back offers on the Liverpool v Arsenal match. There’s a diversity of offers and ultimately the best money back offer will depend on which market you intend to play. We have broken down the offer details to help you make a smart choice on where to place your bet.
