Liverpool’s title credentials will face a stern test when they travel to the Emirates Stadium to take on Arsenal. Crystal Palace halted the Gunners run of 11 consecutive wins as the Eagles secured a draw against the high flying Emery’s side. The Reds are just behind on goal difference to Manchester City in the league, and both the teams have been relentless as neither of them looks like dropping points at the moment.
The Gunners have often been questioned for their ability to not go past their direct top four rivals and so far this season they have already lost to Manchester City and Chelsea. So Jurgen Klopp would fancy his chances against the Gunners.
Team News: Naby Keita and Jordan Henderson are doubtful for the Reds, and they are expected to undergo a late fitness test before the all-important clash against their London rivals. Apart from that, Klopp would have a strong squad to choose from here.
Liverpool predicted lineup Vs Arsenal
Alisson Becker is a guaranteed starter in goal for the Reds. He hasn’t been tested at all off late, but the Brazilian can expect some action against the in-form Arsenal forwards. In defence, Virgil van Dijk has been a colossus for the Reds, and he is likely to be partnered by Dejan Lovren.
Out on the right, Joe Gomez might once again feature as a right back to nullify the threat of Pierre Emerick Aubameyang. Trent Alexander Arnold has been out of favour of late especially when he is expected to be tested defensively. Therefore we might see Gomez back as a right back after the Cardiff game. Down the left, Andy Robertson is a nailed on starter.
Fabinho has stepped up in the last two games, and this is the kind of game where he would be required the most. He should start in the defensive midfield role. James Milner should be back in the starting eleven even though he didn’t start in the last game. The evergreen midfielder will again have to do the role of a workhorse. The midfield partnership would be completed by Georginio Wijnaldum who has been nothing less than a revelation in the middle of the park for his side.
Xherdan Shaqiri is certainly knocking on the door for a starting place, but we believe Klopp would go in with his tried and tested front three for this big game.
Sadio Mane should have his confidence back after scoring a brace, and he is expected to start down the left. Mohamed Salah is yet to hit top gear, but he is still finding the back of the net. One can only imagine what devastation the Egyptian can cause once he starts firing on all cylinders. He should start down the right. Roberto Firmino might not be a regular on the scoresheet as his other partners but his valuable contribution all across the pitch cannot be discounted, and he would start in his usual false nine role.
