ARS vs LIV Dream11: Liverpool travel to the Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal with perhaps one eye on their upcoming UEFA Champions League quarter-final first leg clash with Real Madrid just three games later. The defending Premier League champions secured a rare win last time out in the Premier League, beating Wolves 0-1, only their second victory in the past eight league games contested by the Reds. Arsenal may be in a position to take advantage here with the Gunners on a high recently under Mikel Arteta. A North London Derby triumph over Tottenham was backed up by them securing a spot in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Europa League. Most recently, Arteta’s men came back from three goals down to rescue a point away at West Ham. An entertaining affair is likely in prospect here, as neither side have impressed this season at the back.

Injury Report and Unavailability: Emile-Smith Rowe missed the England under-21’s last game against Croatia with a hip injury and will be sidelined. David Luiz has been ruled out of the game with an injury.
Expected changes and Strategy: Martin Odegaard recovered from an ankle injury for Norway on international duty and is fine to face Liverpool. Calum Chambers has been a surprise starter of late for Arsenal so don’t rule out his involvement here.
Arsenal Starting XI (Likely)
Injury Report and Unavailability: Liverpool still have key players like Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, and Joel Matip out injured. Skipper Jordan Henderson is set to be out for longer than expected and faces a race against time to be fit for the European Championship in June.
Expected changes and Strategy: Roberto Firmino sustained a knee injury last month but has returned to training. However, given Diogo Jota’s rich vein of form right now, the Brazilian might start on the bench.

Liverpool headed into the international break with successive wins, as many as their previous eight matches combined. They could be as many as eight points off fourth by the time this game kicks off. It’s still too early to tell if Liverpool are back on track but you would still favour them in a match-up with Arsenal, who are hardly consistent themselves. In our ARS vs LIV Today Match Prediction odds, we back for a 2-1 win for Liverpool in this match.
