Arsenal could achieve their biggest win of the season so far to secure top spot in the Premier League table once again. Furthermore, a victory would see the Gunners go as many as 14 points ahead of the Reds.

Mikel Arteta was coy about revealing too much regarding his team news with Oleksandr Zinchenko absent from training and the squad that beat Bodo/Glimt 3-0 on Thursday night. Otherwise, the Spaniard can choose from the rest of his starting players with Kieran Tierney the obvious candidate to replace the Ukrainian.

Liverpool are also without their first-choice left-back Andrew Robertson. Despite being close to a return, the Scot is not expected to play meaning Kostas Tsimikas will come in on the Liverpool left.

Klopp tried a front four of Darwin Nunez, Mohamed Salah, Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota in their win over Rangers, something which could have been a hint for what to expect in today’s clash.

Kaya Kaynak and Tom Canton will bring updates before, during and after the match from north London so stay tuned throughout the day.
