Arsenal are likely to make two changes against Liverpool from the side that was held to a 1-1 draw with Brighton and Hove Albion on Boxing Day, according to Evening Standard.
With Mesut Ozil failing to make the trip to Merseyside and Alexandre Lacazette struggling to play alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the pair will drop out of Unai Emery’s line-up.
Jurgen Klopp is also set to make just two changes to his Liverpool side as they look to endorse their place at the top of the Premier League.
Ozil and Lacazette are both set to miss the cut from Emery’s line-up against Liverpool with Alex Iwobi and Aaron Ramsey coming in.
Ozil has been ruled out of the clash with a knee complaint, whilst Lacazette disappointed last time out for the Gunners.
Given his defensive injuries, Emery has little room to rotate and will name the same back-line that started against Brighton.
