Under-fire Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers has stuck with the 3-4-3 formation that inspired a win over Bournemouth in midweek, but also contributed to a 3-0 defeat to Manchester United last weekend – with Raheem Sterling retaining his spot as the lone striker.
Meanwhile, Arsenal are without key defender Laurent Koscielny, so it looks like Calum Chambers will partner Per Mertesacker at the heart of defence.
Here are the confirmed starting XIs:
#Arsenal team v Liverpool: Szczesny, Debuchy, Mertesacker, Chambers, Gibbs, Flamini, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Cazorla, Alexis, Giroud, Welbeck
