Arsenal vs Liverpool: Predicted lineup, injury news, head-to-head, telecast
Last visit from the Reds ended with a defeat for the Emirates Stadium hosts
Arsenal opened the 2023-24 Premier League season brilliantly. They were in cruise mode at the top of the league table. However, a few setbacks of late like against Fulham and West Ham did them badly. Now the Gunners are 5 points away from up top.
Liverpool also started their season brilliantly. Jürgen Klopp’s men with much consistency in performances so far see themselves at the peak of the league. The Reds have already faced Mikel Arteta’s side two times this season. After a 1-1 draw at Anfield in the league, they met in the FA Cup 3rd round. In that game, Arsenal faced a 2-0 defeat at the Emirates Stadium.

Location: Emirates Stadium
Arsenal (in all competitions): W-W-L-L-L
Liverpool (in all competitions): W-W-D-W-W
Players to Watch
Bukayo Saka (Arsenal)
The right winger was involved in a counterattack against Nottingham Forest last time out. The 22-year-old was composed after receiving the ball inside the box and finished from his weaker right foot. Bukayo Saka remains a trustworthy component of Arsenal’s forward line.
Conor Bradley (Liverpool)
The 20-year-old right-back left everyone impressed against Chelsea last game. Conor Bradley scored a goal and also assisted twice in the 4-1 victory. This might put Trent Alexander-Arnold’s return in starting XI a doubt even though he is fit to make a return. Bradley is expected to be allowed to express himself once again from the start.
- Both sides have already met twice this season with Arsenal failing to win any

Injury & Team News
Thomas Partey is enjoying his time back in training after injury recovery and could be on the team sheet for this one. The rest of the squad under Arteta seems finetuned for the Sunday action.
Mohamed Salah who scored in the last league game against Arsenal will be missed highly by the Reds. The winger is recovering from a hamstring injury suffered at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations while on duty with Egypt. Apart from him no major setbacks for Klopp’s side.
