International week has created even more injury worries for Klopp, with Jordan Henderson having left the England camp prematurely. Sadio Mane, meanwhile, sustained a rib injury with Senegal, although the issue doesn't appear to be serious.

However, Andy Robertson is expected to be sidelined after he was forced off against Denmark on Scotland duty in midweek with a hamstring problem, while Harvey Elliott and Roberto Firmino won't feature.

Thomas Partey skipped international duty with Ghana as he continues his recovery from the injury which kept him out of Arsenal's victory over Watford two weeks ago. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was also sent home from his international exploits with Gabon.

Both will be 'assessed' before the game, although earlier noise had been optimistic.

In more positive news for Arteta, Kieran Tierney started twice for Scotland in the last week after he was missing with an ankle injury before the international hiatus.

Arsenal's recent record at Anfield in the Premier League makes for dismal reading, with the Gunners having last tasted victory on the red half of Merseyside all the way back in 2012.

Liverpool are unbeaten in their last eight meetings with Arsenal at Anfield on league duty, which have included a pair of 5-1 victories and a 4-0 triumph in August 2017.

Arteta does boast a couple of recent victories over Klopp, although one came in the Carabao Cup on penalties while the other arrived when Liverpool had already been crowned champions in July 2020.

The defeat at the London Stadium last time out is sure to have rattled Liverpool. Despite losing just once this season, the performances against Brighton and West Ham haven't been all too convincing for Klopp's liking.

The Reds face an Arsenal side in red hot form, but they rarely lose at Anfield infront of supporters and they will be all too aware of the Gunners' recent record on Merseyside.

Expect a close encounter, with the home side to edge it.

Prediction: Liverpool 2-1 Arsenal
