Predicted Arsenal lineup vs Liverpool without Mesut Ozil

Ozil could miss Liverpool clash with flu symptoms

Premier League side Arsenal take on Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday knowing that a win could cement their chances of a top-four finish.

The Gunners have been in a patchy form of late, but they will be quietly confident with their opponents having won just one of their last seven league outings.

Formation: 4-2-3-1


Petr Cech has started in all of the Gunners' 26 games this season, and he is a definite start at Merseyside.

Hector Bellerin and Nacho Monreal have been the preferred full-back combination, and no changes are expected.

Laurent Koscielny appears to have overcome his hamstring niggle, and he will take up the central defensive position alongside Shkodran Mustafi.

With Mohamed Elneny ruled out for at least month through an ankle problem, expect Granit Xhaka and Francis Coquelin to start at the heart of the midfield.

Theo Walcott impressed during the 2-0 win over fifth-tier Sutton, and he could take up his position on the right side of the attack.

Alex Iwobi appears to be another favourite under Wenger, and he will no doubt be preferred ahead of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on the left wing,

Arsene Wenger has been hesitant to confirm Danny Welbeck is ready to start and this could see the Englishman on the bench despite Ozil's illness concern.

Aaron Ramsey has recently returned to full training, and it would not be a surprise if the manager played him from the off in the number '10' role.

Alexis Sanchez is set to lead the line for the Gunners on the day having already netted 20 goals across all competitions.
