Liverpool predicted XI to face Arsenal: Two changes to Klopp’s team

Liverpool will travel to Arsenal tomorrow night looking to remain on course to secure a record points total this season.

The champions can reach 102 points if they win their last three matches and must get back on track after Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Burnley.

Boss Jurgen Klopp confirmed ahead of the game to the Liverpool Echo that there are no fresh injury worries for the game.

James Milner is not fit to return, although he could be available to face Chelsea at the weekend.

Ahead of tomorrow’s game, we looked at how Klopp might choose to line his team up to face Arsenal.

In goal and back four

Alisson Becker is firmly established as the number one stopper and will continue tomorrow night.

Against Burnley, Neco Williams earned a chance to shine in his natural position with Trent Alexander-Arnold settling for a place on the bench.

The England man should come into the team tomorrow as Arsenal look set to pose more of a threat on the flanks.

Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson should continue to take up their natural roles at centre-back and left-back respectively.

Midfield three

James Milner is definitely ruled out so he won’t challenge for a place among Klopp’s chosen three.

 

On Saturday, Curtis Jones made his first league start alongside Gini Wijnaldum and Fabinho.

He could drop out at the Emirates Stadium, however, with Naby Keita likely to return to the side.

The £120,000-a-week man was in decent form at Brighton recently and could help the team with Jordan Henderson ruled out for the season.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could be forced to settle for a place on the bench against his former side.

In attack

Divock Origi, Harvey Elliott and Takumi Minamino will be in contention but the formidable threesome will likely start against the Gunners.

Firmino might have struggled to hit the goal trail this season but his work rate against the better teams in the division has proved a useful asset for Liverpool.

Here is how Liverpool could line-up against the Gunners:
