here is little time to reset after the international break for two of the Premier League’s top five as Arsenal travel to Anfield to meet Liverpool.

After defeat to West Ham in their final fixture before the international break, Jurgen Klopp’s side have now slipped to fourth in the Premier League, just one place and two points ahead of their opponents on Saturday.

Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal have rebounded after a disastrous start to the season and strung together nine league games without defeat, but, at a venue where the club have struggled, will face a big test of their top four credentials.

Liverpool have won their last five home games against Arsenal and will be keen to get their title tilt back on track against their visitors from London.

Mohamed Salah is the only goalscorer in the Premier League to have reached double figures, with ten in his eleven appearances so far this season.

Liverpool vs Arsenal team news

Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson is said to be doubtful for the game, with reports suggesting the Scottish defender’s availability is hanging in the balance after suffering a hamstring complaint on international duty.

Should Robertson be unavailable, Kostas Tsimikas would in all likelihood deputise after a number of promising showings. Jordan Henderson and Sadio Mane are expected to be fit despite injury scares after training on Tuesday, though Roberto Firmino, Curtis Jones and Naby Keita remain out.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang allayed fears of an injury by training with Arsenal on Wednesday. The striker had missed Gabon’s encounter with Egypt earlier this week having returned to London.

Thomas Partey is, however, a doubt having turned down a Ghana call-up to continue his recuperation from injury, but Kieran Tierney could press for a start ahead of Nuno Tavares after twice playing for Scotland.

Liverpool vs Arsenal prediction

This is reasonably tough to call, with both sides coming out of the international break and with a couple of key injury concerns. Arsenal are in stronger recent form but tend to struggle at Anfield a tight home win seems the likeliest result.
