The Arsenal vs Liverpool predicted line ups are largely based on the game's recent form. Fabinho has been in great form‚ and could be the left-wing anchor in the absence of the injured Xhaka. The right-sided defenders have plenty of options‚ but the lack of attacking options in the midfield means that Xhaka may have to play on the left. Both teams have some key players returning from injury. Mohamed Salah is expected to start at right back‚ while Luis Diaz will play in the left flank. Sadio Mane has a central role and is the most likely to score. The two sides are likely to start with the same line-up‚ though there is still a slight doubt about the availability of Tomiyasu‚ who picked up his second clean sheet on Sunday. Arsenal have a weakened defensive unit‚ but have a strong attack.
Xhaka will be partnered by Diogo Jota in the centre and Mohamed Salah will be on the left flank. The latter's midfielder is likely to be able to provide a threat to the Reds' defence‚ while Fabinho will play in the right side of the midfield‚ shielding the defence and giving the box-to-box midfielders plenty of space to operate.
