On Saturday evening, Liverpool will host Arsenal at Anfield in one of the most anticipated Premier League matches of the season.

After 11 games, Liverpool and Arsenal are separated by just one spot and two points in the table, with Liverpool fourth and Arsenal fifth.

Team News

Liverpool had a difficult international break, with key players Jordan Henderson, Andrew Robertson, and Sadio Mane all suffering injuries while representing their respective countries.

Mane is anticipated to be healthy for Arsenal's visit, while Robertson is also expected to play, although Henderson is a greater question mark and will be evaluated before kickoff.

Although Liverpool will be without at least six first-team players, Divock Origi suffered a dead leg for Belgium and could recover in time.

For Roberto Firmino, Joe Gomez, James Milner, Naby Keita, Curtis Jones, and Harvey Elliott, Saturday's encounter will come far too soon due to injuries.

Mohamed Salah, the Premier League's top scorer, is likely to return to the starting lineup, looking to add to his spectacular record of seven goals and two assists in nine Premier League encounters with Arsenal.

The news that Thomas Partey should be fit for selection has given Arsenal a big boost, with the midfielder set to return to the starting lineup right away.

Granit Xhaka and Sead Kolasinac are the two players absent for Arteta this weekend. Folarin Balogun is also available.

The Spaniard is highly doubtful to make adjustments to his starting lineup from the win over Watford last time out, which means Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will start again, while Nicolas Pepe, Bernd Leno, Martin Odegaard, and Gabriel Martinelli will likely have to make do with a bench spot.

After being an unused sub the last time out, Kierney will be hoping to reclaim his starting berth.

Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Fabinho, Thiago; Salah, Jota, Mane

Arsenal possible starting lineup:
Ramsdale; Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tierney; Saka, Thomas, Lokonga, Smith Rowe; Lacazette; Aubameyang
