Liverpool have scored 22 goals in their last six home matches against Arsenal and are the favourites heading into this match.

Liverpool –  Adrian recovered from an ankle injury to start against Southampton last weekend and will continue here with Alisson still sidelined.

Dejan Lovren and Naby Keita are still doubts for Liverpool but neither would have started anyway.

Joel Matip and Joe Gomez are in competition for a starting berth alongside Virgil van Dijk. The latter could get the nod here to combat Arsenal’s pace in attack.
