Liverpool vs Arsenal XI: Predicted Lineups and team news for Premier League 2022-23


Arsenal will head to Anfield on Sunday looking to secure their first away win over Liverpool since Mikel Arteta visited as a player in 2012.

The Gunners have historically struggled on the red side of Merseyside but arrive at Sunday’s game flying at the top of the Premier League and looking to preserve their lead over Manchester City in the title race.

Arteta will, however, expect a fierce response from a Liverpool side who ended a three-game losing streak with an uninspiring 0-0 draw with Chelsea last time out. Jurgen Klopp’s team are clinging on in the battle for European qualification but will need to start picking up points pretty soon.

Liverpool team news

Klopp has confirmed that Virgil van Dijk has shaken off the illness that kept him out of the Chelsea game, and he could return to the squad alongside midfielder Thiago Alcantara, who will need to pass a late fitness test but has responded well on his return to team training after two months out with a hip injury.

Luis Diaz is close to a comeback but won’t be risked here, with the Colombian set to watch on alongside Stefan Bajcetic, Naby Keita and Calvin Ramsay.

Liverpool predicted lineup vs Arsenal

(4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Henderson, Elliott; Salah, Gakpo, Nunez

Arsenal team news

Arteta mysteriously revealed that one player could make their return here but declined to mention which of his injured stars that may be. William Saliba, Eddie Nketiah, Takehiro Tomiyasu and Mohamed Elneny are all thought to be out.

In more concrete news, Bukayo Saka has overcome an illness of his own and should be back in the starting lineup.
