Mikel Arteta’s men face Premier League champions Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium in order to move up the table after losing the North London Derby to Spurs. Arsenal currently sit in 9th place with 50 points, 9 points behind 5th placed Manchester United. There’s no way Arsenal can even come close to even Europa League places now, but Arteta is doing good things with the limited resources he’s got. Liverpool on the other hand have literally nothing to play for, they might play a lot of squad players in order to rest their stars.
Arsenal : Martinez; Sokratis, Luiz, Holding; Bellerin, Ceballos, Xhaka, Tierney; Saka, Lacazette, Aubameyang
Liverpool : Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Keita, Fabinho, Oxlade-Chamberlain; Salah, Firmino, Mane
Trent Alexander-Arnold and Keita will most likely make it to the starting 11 while Alexandre Lacazette will probably start after his performance against Spurs a few days ago.
Arsenal : Pablo Mari (ankle), Bernd Leno, Gabriel Martinelli and Calum Chambers (all knee), Eddie Nketiah (suspended), Ozil (back problem)
Liverpool : James Milner (muscle discomfort)
Arsenal haven’t won in their last 9 league meetings with Liverpool (D4L5). The last time the Gunners won was back in April 2015, a 4-1 win at the Emirates. Liverpool have drawn three times and won once against Arsenal in the last 4 meetings at the Emirates.
