Mo Salah could START for Liverpool at Arsenal in a big boost to Jurgen Klopp as the Reds try to close the gap on Manchester City at the top... while Emile Smith Rowe and Takehiro Tomiyasu are in contention for Mikel Arteta's side

  • Mohamed Salah may start for Liverpool despite picking up a knock vs Brighton 
  • Takehiro Tomiyasu and Emile Smith Rowe could return from injury for Arsenal 
  • The Reds travel to the Gunners for a crucial Premier League clash on Wednesday 
 

Arsenal and Liverpool will face off in a clash that could have serious implications for the top of the Premier League table on Wednesday evening.

Jurgen Klopp's Reds could move just one point off league leaders Manchester City if they win this game in hand, while the Gunners would go five points behind Chelsea in third if they win - and they would have another game in hand on the Blues too.

With the title race and the race for the Champions League qualifying spots up for grabs, both managers are likely to play a strong team in their search for three points.

CENTRE BACK - Gabriel

With Pablo Mari farmed out on loan in January and William Saliba still on loan at Marseille for now, Gabriel is the only genuine option for the left-sided centre back slot. He offers a set piece threat too.

LEFT BACK - Kieran Tierney

After a prolonged absence from the side due to injury earlier this campaign, Tierney appears to have put his fitness problems behind him. The Scot offers more steadiness than Nuno Tavares.

CENTRE MIDFIELD - Thomas Partey

The Atletico man is a key cog in the Gunners midfield and when fit is an automatic starter.

CENTRE MIDFIELD - Granit Xhaka

Xhaka - disciplinary problems aside - has performed reasonably well in the engine room and should retain his place ahead of the raw Albert Sambi Lokonga and the prosaic Mohamed Elneny.

RIGHT WING - Bukayo Saka

One of the stars of the Premier League, let alone Arsenal. £72million signing Nicolas Pepe is an OK squad player but Saka has the right wing locked down.
