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.

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.
