Premier League Preview: How Liverpool Will Line Up Against Arsenal

After an underwhelming 1-1 draw at West Bromwich Albion last Sunday, Liverpool look to hold on to fourth place in the Premier League table as they host league leaders Arsenal on Saturday.

It is just as well that fellow top-four challengers Tottenham Hotspur entertain Everton this weekend; the race for the Champions League qualification spot may yet take another turn after Week 25.

Arsenal have been a bit of a bogey team for Liverpool in recent seasons: The Reds last league win against the Gunners came in August 2012, and they’d have to go way back to March 2007 for the victory before that.

With Arsene Wenger’s men in good form and Brendan Rodgers’ squad still embattled by injuries, this will be a tough fixture for Liverpool, which were quite comprehensively outplayed by a masterful midfield performance in the reverse fixture at the Emirates Stadium earlier this season.

How will Saturday’s hosts line up against the league leaders then? Here is our starting Liverpool XI for the clash at Anfield in a 5-3-2 formation designed to contain Arsenal. Let us know your picks in the comments below.
