Liverpool welcome league leaders Arsenal to Anfield on Sunday for the Premier League fixture of the weekend.

After their 0-0 draw with Chelsea in midweek, Liverpool will be hoping for another positive result before it becomes too late to sneak a European place for next season.

On Saturday, Manchester City kept the pressure on Arsenal, with a 4-1 victory away to Southampton. An Erling Haaland brace moved City to within five points of the Gunners with the same number of games played (29).

Managers thoughts

Arteta on Liverpool

“I have more admiration [for them] because it shows the difficulty of being at the top and transforming a football club, their identity, their beliefs and their competitive capacity for the last six or seven years. It shows how difficult it is to maintain and sustain that level.

“We all have difficult moments but especially with what they’ve done at the club, I think it’s something remarkable.”

Klopp on Arsenal

“Mikel has been building this team for a few years now and obviously the outcome is pretty impressive. The way they play is fun to watch, to be honest: it’s super-lively, really good football, top players on the pitch, good match plans.”

Possible Liverpool XI vs Arsenal

Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Henderson, Elliott; Salah, Núñez, Gakpo.

Possible Arsenal XI vs Liverpool

Ramsdale; White, Holding, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Partey, Xhaka, Ødegaard; Saka, Jesus, Martinelli.
