Preview

The Premier League is set for a cracking contest on Wednesday night as Arsenal and Liverpool get set to lock horns. While Liverpool will need to win this match to put pressure on Man City at top, the Gunners will be hoping for a positive result to get another foot into the Top 4 spot. With such high stakes for both sides, fans can expect a thrilling encounter at Emirates Stadium featuring two sides in red-hot form.

Team News

Arsenal: Emile Smith Rowe has fully recovered from his illness and after playing a cameo in previous match, he will be available for Mikel Arteta against Liverpool. However, Martinelli is likely to get a nod ahead in Starting XI with Smith Rowe joining the action as substitute from bench. Takehiro Tomiyasu is expected to miss out due to calf injury with Cedric Soares starting at the right-back position.

Liverpool: Jurgen Klopp’s side will be without the services of Kostas Tsimikas and James Milner, who are suffering from illness. Although there are concerns about Mohamed Salah after his injury in last match, he is likely to be fully fit to start at Emirates. Ibrahima Konate is also back and is expected to start on bench, while Thiago Alcantara might get a nod ahead of Naby Keita.

Key Players

Analysis

Among the goalkeepers, all eyes will be on Aaron Ramsdale who has been in scintillating form this season. If Arsenal have to win, Ramsdale has to produce an exceptional performance and this is what home fans would be hoping for. Trent Alexander Arnold and Kieran Tierney can get some crucial points for your fantasy side, with their ability to defend and even contribute in goals going forward.

Sadio Mane and Bukayo Saka will be the two attackers to watch out for, with the duo showing some tremendous form in recent times. On their day, both of them can turn the game on its head. Mohamed Salah is the leading goal-scorer of Premier League this season and should be an obvious pick in your fantasy side, alongside someone like Alexandre Lacazette who usually steps up in big games.

Arsenal: Ramsdale; Cedric, White, Gabriel, Tierney; Xhaka, Partey; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Lacazette
