Predicted Liverpool XI against Arsenal: Two changes, Joe Gomez returns

The Reds take on the Gunners at Anfield tonight.

Liverpool take on Arsenal tomorrow night looking to continue their 100 per cent start to the 2020/21 campaign.

The Reds defeated Leeds United 4-3 on the opening day of the season and then took all three points from Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last week.

Liverpool are attempting to defend their Premier League crown and will hope to flex their title credentials further with a win over Arsenal.

Ahead of tonight’s game, we looked at the team which Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp might look to go with.

In goal and back four

Alisson is a fitness doubt so Spanish stopper Adrian could come in for a rare start.

The ex-West Ham man kept goal on 18 occasions in all competitions last season and is largely a safe pair of hands.

At the back, Joe Gomez could return and he could partner Virgil Van Dijk at centre-back.

The full-backs will likely remain the same with Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back and Andy Robertson playing at left-back.

In midfield

Gini Wijnaldum looks to be sticking at Anfield, despite some fierce interest from Barcelona – he should keep his place in the side.

Last week the Brazilian played superbly well in a centre-back role at Chelsea but he could play in midfield here.

Alongside those two, Naby Keita would be the obvious choice having started both league matches so far this season.

In attack

In attack, the front three is likely to remain the same.

Klopp’s trusted trio in Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane are all expected to keep their places for the visit of Arsenal.

Takumi Minamino, Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri will all be in contention.

Here is how tonight’s team might look:
