Arsenal predicted line-up vs Liverpool as Arteta wrestles with Trossard headache

Arsenal predicted line-up vs Liverpool as Arteta wrestles with Trossard headache

Arteta faces a selection headache.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta faces a selection headache as he prepares for his side's visit to Liverpool on Sunday.

The Gunners head to Anfield looking to restore their eight-point lead at the top of the Premier League table with Manchester City closing the gap after winning on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Liverpool need a win to keep their faint hopes of qualifying for next season's Champions League alive.

Arsenal haven't won at Anfield since 2002 and the last time they picked up any points there was a 3-3 draw in 2016.

Arteta has rarely altered his team in the league this season but now faces a selection headache with key striker Gabriel Jesus recently returning from injury.

The Brazilian forward scored twice in a recent 4-1 victory over Leeds and is set to start on Sunday meaning Leandro Trossard may find himself on the bench.

Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli are likely to be the preferred choices for Arteta out wide.

The Gunners could also be without defender William Saliba who has been missing since picking up an injury against Sporting Lisbon and was not spotted on Arsenal's pre-match walk in Liverpool.

Predicted line-ups

The game kicks off at 4:30pm on Sunday and is available to watch in the UK on Sky Sports. Here's how we think each team will line up.

Liverpool predicted XI: Alison; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Elliot; Salah, Gakpo, Nunez

Arsenal predicted XI: Ramsdale; White, Holding, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Xhaka, Partey; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Jesus


Given Saliba's injury, it's likely Rob Holding will start at the centre of Arsenal's defence alongside Gabriel.

Whilst Thiago is expected to return to the matchday squad it's likely he will only feature from the bench given he's been out for some time.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp made six changes in midweek against Chelsea but it's expected that the players who were left out twill return against the Gunners.
