Comparing Arsenal and Liverpool's Starting XI

Ahead of Arsenal's Sunday clash with Liverpool, and with each team suffering from injuries and lack of fitness, I will break down and compare each team's starting XI.

First thing is first, here is what I assume will be the starting XI for each squad:

Liverpool: Reina, Johnson, Skrtel, Carragher, Agger, Kuyt, Gerrard, Lucas, Jovanovic, Cole, Ngog.

Arsenal: Almunia, Sagna, Koscielny, Vermaelen, Clichy, Song, Nasri, Diaby, Arshavin, Walcott, Chamakh

Injuries/Unfit Players:

Arsenal: Fabregas, van Persie, Denilson, Bendtner, Djourou

Liverpool: Torres, Poulsen

Note: Song and Diaby have a fitness test to pass before being cleared to play Sunday.

After desiring to leave for much of the summer, I highly doubt Liverpool would start either Javier Mascherano, Emiliano Insua, or Fabio Aurelio, all of which have looked destined to leave the club at one point or another this summer.
