Revealed: 88% of Liverpool fans want Trent Alexander-Arnold to start alongside Joe Gomez against Arsenal

Liverpool head to the Emirates Stadium on Saturday to face an in-form Arsenal side who will be out to reinforce their top-four contender credentials by getting a result against the Reds. 

The Gunners certainly boast a potent enough attacking force to hurt Liverpool, so Jurgen Klopp will know that his defence has to be at its best if they are to head back to Anfield with all three points in tow. This puts great pressure upon his selection for his back four.

Andrew Robertson at left-back and Virgil van Dijk in the middle are automatic picks, but the German coach has a big call to make between installing Dejan Lovren at centre-back with Joe Gomez at right-back, or putting Gomez at centre-back with Trent Alexander-Arnold out on the right flank.

The energy, pace and tenacity offered by both Gomez and Alexander-Arnold ought to offer a smarter option than the inclusion of the experienced but error-prone Lovren.

Many Liverpool fans agree that the young English pair ought to be amongst the starting XI, with 88% of those we polled voting for Lovren to be cast aside in their favour. See the full results below.
