Arsenal vs Liverpool: Team news, injuries, possible lineups

Arsenal will today take on Liverpool in the Premier League fixture at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners head to the game following a 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace last weekend.

Arsenal manager, Unai Emery will be without defender, Hector Bellerin due to injury.

The likes of Sead Kolasinac and Nacho Monreal are both hamstring injuries, which mean that Granit Xhaka is expected to continue in his role as emergency left-back.

Forward, Alexandre Lacazette and midfielder, Mesut Ozil were given the night off in midweek and so should return fresh, while striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is expected to start for the hosts having scored five goals in his last three Premier League games.

Meanwhile, Liverpool head to the game after defeating Cardiff City 4-1 in their last Premier League clash.

The Reds coach, Jurgen Klopp will hope to welcome captain Jordan Henderson back into the team after he missed the last two games with a hamstring problem, while midfielder, Naby Keita is also nearing a return from a similar setback.

The likes of Andrew Robertson, James Milner and Joe Gomez should also be brought back into the side after being rested against Cardiff.

Striker, Roberto Firmino has only two league goals to his name this season, but he has both scored and assisted in each of his last three Premier League games against Arsenal and could become the first player in the competition’s history to manage it in four successive matches against a single opponent.

Winger, Mohamed Salah also has a fine record against Arsenal having scored in all three of his Premier League games against them.

Arsenal’s potential starting XI: Leno; Lichtsteiner, Holding, Mustafi, Xhaka; Torreira, Ramsey; Iwobi, Ozil, Aubameyang; Lacazette

Liverpool’s potential starting XI: Alisson; Gomez, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson; Milner, Henderson, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane

The kick-off time for the match is 6:30pm.
