Arsenal

Gunners injury so far this season.

Latest: Unai Emery squad injury update.

The Gunners go into the clash on the back of a 1-1 draw with Brighton and Hove Albion on Boxing Day, a result which saw them drop out of the top four and lose some ground on Chelsea.

On the same day, Jurgen Klopp’s side put four past Newcastle United at home to open up a six-point lead at the top of the table.

Games between the two teams are often entertaining and full of goals, but Gunners head coach Unai Emery will be hoping to avoid a repeat of the 4-0 loss in the corresponding fixture last season.

It was a 1-1 draw in the game at the Emirates Stadium earlier in the campaign and that was actually the last time the Merseyside giants dropped points in the league.

Unai Emery will be hoping a number of players can return to action as the Gunners look to seal a place in the knockout stages.

At this stage of the season, it’s unlikely that any manager will have a fully fit squad.

The Spaniard is no different. He has been rather unlucky in that he has had to deal with a number of injuries in recent weeks and there are still a few concerns ahead of the game in Merseyside.

Author’s take:

Arsenal is dealing with his injured squad lately. Many players with up to first seven players are already out of the team due to one or the other injuries.

So it is certainly possible that Arsenal could be forced to face Liverpool without its First-seven players on Saturday.
