Gunners will have to do without Mathieu Flamini against the Reds…
French anchorman Mathieu Flamini is unavailable with a groin problem, as is Serge Gnabry. Long term absentees Lukas Podolski, Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Abou Diaby are still injured, and will not make the match squad.
Thomas Vermaelen will return to the bench, meaning Arsene Wenger’s first choice defence will line up to deal with the excellent Suarez/Sturridge partnership.
Mikel Arteta should start in the holding role, with Aaron Ramey and Jack Wilshere taking the other two midfield spots. Mesut Ozil and Santi Cazorla will dovetail behind the in form Olivier Giroud in the final third.
