[Teams] Liverpool vs Arsenal: Confirmed line-ups from Anfield

By on August 24, 2019

The early Premier League pace setters face-off this weekend as Liverpool welcome Arsenal to Anfield this evening.

Liverpool are without number one goalkeeper Alisson Becker due to an on-going calf injury so Adrian will continue to deputise between the sticks. Naby Keita is also ruled out with a muscle issue but Jordan Henderson and Fabinho return in midfield after being left out for the win at Southampton last weekend.

Jurgen Klopp goes with his formidable front three of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino once again while Virgil van Dijk will marshall the back four once again for the Merseysiders.

Unai Emery has handed Nicolas Pepe his full debut so Arsenal’s big-money summer signing lines-up alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Alexandre Lacazette is named on the bench.

David Luiz starts alongside Sokratis in defence with Granit Xhaka returning in midfield alongside Joe Willock and Dani Ceballos. Mesut Ozil isn’t named in the squad despite being fully fit.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Liverpool

Adrian, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Mane, Salah, Firmino.

SUBS: Kelleher, Milner, Gomez, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lallana, Shaqiri, Origi

Arsenal

Leno, Maitland-Niles, Luiz, Sokratis, Monreal, Guendouzi, Xhaka, Willock, Ceballos, Pepe, Aubameyang.

SUBS: Martinez, Mkhitaryan, Lacazette, Torreira, Chambers, Nelson, Kolasinac.
