Liverpool will face off against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium this Sunday evening as they look to earn maximum points on the road in the Premier League. The Reds managed to earn an impressive 2-0 win over Rangers in midweek which will give them some momentum heading into this contest in the English capital.
4-3-3 Liverpool Predicted Lineup To Face Arsenal
Jurgen Klopp could revert to his favoured 4-3-3 formation and is expected to make a few tweaks to his first XI for this game versus the Gunners. Roberto Firmino will probably get the nod to lead the charge for the Merseyside club in the final third while both Diogo Jota and Darwin Nunez drop to the bench.
Goalkeeper and Defense
Alisson Becker will function in goal for the Reds after securing a rare clean sheet in his last outing. Virgil Van Dijk will operate alongside Joel Matip at the heart of the Liverpool backline as they look to keep things solid at the back during the 90 minutes.
Trent Alexander-Arnold will continue to operate at right-back following his impressive showing in midweek. Kostas Tsimikas might fill in on the other side as the left-back as we still await reports on the return of Andy Robertson. Klopp will ask both of them to maintain a solid defensive shape inside their half and offer some decent service to the front players.
Ibrahima Konate will be back for this game and would offer cover for the centre-back positions on the bench.
Klopp could opt for a midfield comprised of Thiago Alcantara, Fabinho and Jordan Henderson for this game. Fabinho has to anchor the midfield with conviction on his own while both Thiago and Henderson look to move the ball well and create some decent chances in the opponent’s half.
Harvey Elliott will have to settle for a spot on the bench as he waits for his chance to shine in the second 45 minutes if Klopp decides to call upon his services.
Luis Diaz will keep his spot on the left flank while Mohamed Salah hopes to put in a productive performance from the right.
Roberto Firmino will spearhead Liverpool’s attack down the middle after he scored a brace in his last league start versus Brighton.
As mentioned earlier, both Diogo Jota and Darwin Nunez will have to be content with a place on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the latter stages of the clash if Klopp’s side are in need of a goal by then.
