Arsenal Team News: Injuries, suspensions and line-up vs Liverpool

Everything you need to know ahead of the Premier League match at Emirates Stadium on Saturday

Arsenal will be looking to end a run of six winless games on Saturday when they face Liverpool in the game of the weekend.

The Gunners won 12 matches in a row in all competitions before last weekend’s 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace.

However, they lost their opening first two games of the season against Manchester City and Chelsea, with head coach Unai Emery determined to show that his Arsenal side can compete with a fellow top six side.

Arsenal Injuries

Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac have minor right hamstring injuries, Hector Bellerin (thigh) and Sokratis (right ankle) are also being assessed ahead of the game.

Mohamed Elneny, Laurent Koscielny and Dinos Mavropanos are also ruled out.

Arsenal Suspensions

Arsenal have Matteo Guendouzi suspended after his red card against Blackpool in the Carabao Cup.

Possible Arsenal Starting Line-Up

Rob Holding looks likely to partner Shkodran Mustafi in defence while Stephan Lichtsteiner could start ahead of Bellerin if the Spaniard fails a fitness test.

Granit Xhaka and Lucas Torreira are expected to continue in midfield, Alex Iwobi is likely to come back in for Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alexandre Lacazette will almost certainly start upfront.

Liverpool Team News

Jurgen Klopp has question marks over captain Jordan Henderson and fellow midfielder Naby Keita, both of whom have missed the Reds’ last two matches with hamstring problems.

Former Arsenal man Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and forward Rhian Brewster remain on the long-term injured list.

TV Coverage & Kick-Off Time

Kick-off is 5:30pm BST (1:30pm ET) on Monday, and the game will be broadcast live on BT Sport in the United Kingdom. It will be shown on NBC Universo in the United States, and on various channels around the world.
