The Reds only need a point to go top of the table, with current leaders Manchester City only ahead on goal difference and not playing until Sunday.

But while Jurgen Klopp’s men are in good form, the Gunners are too and have not lost a game since mid-August.

In terms of injuries, Klopp is a bit light in midfield with captain Jordan Henderson out with a hamstring problem and Naby Keita missing due to a thigh issue.

Both are close to a return, but will not feature today – while fellow midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is still expected to miss the whole season with a serious knee ligament injury.

Mohamed Salah is fit to play despite tendon inflammation in his wrist.

Klopp has a big tactical decision to make, having ditched his usual 4-3-3 for a 4-2-3-1 formation in the recent wins against Red Star Belgrade and Cardiff.

We think he will revert to the former, with James Milner likely to come into the midfield three and both Xherdan Shaqiri and Adam Lallana benched.

The other big decision is which two start out of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez and Dejan Lovren – with the trio being rotated in recent weeks.

Liverpool’s likely line-up (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Milner, Fabinho, Wijnaldum; Salah, Mane, Firmino
