Match: Liverpool v Arsenal
Kick-Off (GMT): Sun 27 Aug 16:00
Here’s how we think the Gunners will line up:
GK) Petr Cech
He’ll undoubtedly start.
- Arsenal turn to ‘one-goal’ striker with Vlahovic transfer unlikely
- Arsenal anger as Aubameyang holds out for ‘giant’ transfer
- Arsenal 0-0 Burnley player ratings: Gunners lose ground on top four
RCB) Rob Holding
We think Rob Holding will get a start at Anfield. Arsenal’s defence was more than a little vulnerable against Stoke and the return of a recognised centre-back will help that.
CB) Laurent Koscielny
He’s back from suspension and he should go straight back into the starting lineup.
LCB) Nacho Monreal
We think Nacho Monreal will keep his place at centre-back.
RWB) Hector Bellerin
Hector Bellerin will start and in the likely absence of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, we think he’ll revert to right wing-back.
CM) Granit Xhaka
Granit Xhka will start.
CM) Aaron Ramsey
Aaron Ramsey should keep his place in the starting lineup.
LWB) Sead Kolasinac
We think Sead Kolasinac will move back out to his favoured left wing-back slot against Liverpool. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will surely be absent so it’s the best option.
RAM) Mesut Özil
Mesut Özil will start.
LAM) Alexis Sanchez
We think Alexis Sanchez will go straight back into the starting lineup against Liverpool.
ST) Alexandre Lacazette
Alexandre Lacazette should keep his place.
