Arsenal predicted line-up against Liverpool

By on April 8, 2023


Arsenal will be travelling to Anfield to take on a struggling Liverpool side in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

The Gunners will be coming into this game off the back of a seven games winning streak in the league. So, they will be full of confidence ahead of this encounter and should be backing themselves to beat the Merseyside club tomorrow.

Mikel Arteta’s side have been continuing their title march against all odds this season. They are currently at the top of the league with 72 points from 29 games, eight points ahead of second-placed Manchester City having played an extra game.

Victory in tomorrow’s game will certainly be a huge boost for Arsenal in their quest of winning the title this season after 19 years. However, despite Liverpool’s poor form, Jurgen Klopp’s side have only lost one game at home in the league this term so, Arsenal will have to play a perfect game to come away with all three points tomorrow.

Expected Arsenal line-up

Aaron Ramsdale is guaranteed to continue in goal for Arsenal so Matt Turner will have to settle for a place on the bench.

William Saliba is expected to remain sidelined, therefore, Rob Holding and Gabriel Magalhaes should keep hold of their place in the Arsenal starting Xl on Sunday, leaving Jakub Kiwior among the substitutes.

Takehiro Tomiyasu has been ruled out for the rest of the season after undergoing surgery, so Ben White and Oleksandr Zinchenko will remain as the fullbacks for Arteta’s side. Meaning Kieran Tierney would once again be on the bench.

Despite an injury scare, Thomas Partey started last week and he will continue at the heart of midfield in this crucial encounter. In front of the Ghanaian, Granit Xhaka and Martin Odegaard are expected to start in the advanced midfield role so, Jorginho, Fabio Vieira and Emile Smith Rowe will all be among the substitutes this weekend.

Bukayo Saka should return to the right flank after starting on the bench in the last game against Leeds United, while Gabriel Martinelli could be on the opposite side. Gabriel Jesus is likely to lead the line for Arsenal against Liverpool, leaving Leandro Trossard and Reiss Nelson among the substitutes.

Eddie Nketiah is set to remain sidelined in this important fixture due to an ankle issue along with Mohamed Elneny – who has been ruled out for the rest of the season.
