Liverpool travel to play Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium tonight in the Premier League. Let’s take a look at the starting lineup Jürgen Klopp is likely to go with.
Klopp is without Jordan Henderson and Joël Matip for the remaining three games of the season while James Milner isn’t expected to be available until Chelsea visit Anfield next Wednesday.
Alisson will continue in goals for The Reds and I expect a full-strength back four to line out in front of him. That means Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson will start.
In midfield, with Henderson and Milner out, the trio should consist of Fabinho as the defensive midfielder with Naby Keïta and Gini Wijnaldum just ahead of the Brazilian.
I think Klopp will go with his strongest front three as well, meaning Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mané could start.
Klopp’s Redmen must win these final three fixtures to overtake Manchester City’s 100-points Premier League record from 2017/18. Currently on 93 points, two wins and a draw from their final games will see The Reds equal the record.
Predicted Liverpool lineup (4-3-3) vs Arsenal: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Keïta; Salah, Firmino, Mané
