Reds supporters will be delighted to hear that Moh Salah is back in contention for the game, possibly. All this comes after the Egyptian suffered a foot injury in Liverpool’s weekend game against Brighton.

However, It still remains to be seen whether he can make the starting XI or not. If not, Klopp will have to choose between Jota or Firmino.

Regardless of Moh Salah making the lineup tonight or not, Liverpool still boast a frightening frontline. A trio consisting of Mane, Diaz and either of Jota or Firmino isn’t something to laugh at.

Possible Starting XIs

Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago; Salah, Mane, Diaz

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

Result Prediction: Liverpool to edge it out at the Emirates

Arsenal 2 – 3 Liverpool

While Arsenal have been on an impressive run as of late, Liverpool are on an even better streak. With the Reds clicking at the right time of the season, we expect them to exploit Arsenal’s defensive woes.

The Gunners have been left exposed at times at the back due to their high press up the pitch. Opponents haven’t fully cashed in on that weakness, but Jurgen Klopp and his men are a different caliber altogether.
