How Arsenal could line up against Liverpool

Sports Mole looks at how Arsenal could line up for Wednesday's Premier League showdown with champions Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal know that their European hopes are hanging by a thread heading into Wednesday night's match at home to Premier League champions Liverpool.

A 2-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur in the North London derby on Sunday leaves Mikel Arteta's side four points adrift of seventh place with only three games of the season remaining.

The Gunners will now look to return to winning ways at home to a Liverpool side chasing the all-time English top-flight points record, having failed to win any of the last 10 editions of this fixture.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how Arsenal could line up as they look to end that five-year winless streak.

Out: Eddie Nketiah (suspended), Bernd Leno (knee), Gabriel Martinelli (knee), Pablo Mari (ankle), Calum Chambers (knee)
Doubtful: Mesut Ozil (back), Matteo Guendouzi (discipline)

Arsenal will once again be without striker Eddie Nketiah for this match as he serves the second game of his three-match ban following his red card against Leicester City earlier this month.

Alexandre Lacazette fired an emphatic reminder that he is capable of being more than a back-up with his thunderous opener in the North London derby, though, and he is expected to lead the line again in this match.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will provide further firepower up front as he continues to chase the Golden Boot, and this match will see him come up against the two players he shared that award with last season in Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

Nicolas Pepe started the derby on Sunday and could get the nod again, although Arteta must find it difficult to leave impressive youngster Bukayo Saka out of his side given his fine form this season.

Mesut Ozil is once again expected to miss out as he continues to struggle with a back injury, although Arteta's assertion that they will manage his absence internally hints that there could be more behind his lack of football since the restart.

Matteo Guendouzi is another to have been frozen out by Arteta, while Bernd Leno, Pablo Mari, Gabriel Martinelli and Calum Chambers are out for the remainder of the season.

It was in defence where Arsenal made their costly errors in the derby and so Arteta could be tempted to shake things up at the back, with the positions of Shkodran Mustafi and Sead Kolasinac under scrutiny.
