Roberto Firmino returns: Confirmed Liverpool lineup vs Arsenal

Liverpool confirm their lineup as they return to action against Arsenal this evening. The Reds will hope to make up ground in the top-four chase.

Chelsea’s shock home defeat against West Brom today opens the door for Liverpool. The Reds can go just two points off the Blues in the race for a Champions League spot.

But they’ll need to beat Arsenal – a team hoping to make a late charge for those same spots.

So here’s the lineup Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has gone for as he hopes to topple Arsenal:

Alisson – The Brazilian will be fresh after staying at home for the international break. Brazil didn’t have any fixtures.

Trent Alexander-Arnold – Will also be fresh, though we have no idea how. Shockingly omitted from the England team and has a point to prove.

Ozan Kabak – Helped his country to shock win over the Netherlands last week.

Nat Phillips – Not an international and should be raring to go as a starting centre-back.

Andy Robertson – Came in for some criticism after disappointing Scotland showings.

Fabinho – Another fresh one. Liverpool will need Fabinho at his best for the rest of the season.

James Milner – Klopp goes for more fresh legs over Gini Wijnaldum in midfield.

Thiago – Came off the bench in Spain’s first two games before sitting out the latter. Should be good to go.

Mohamed Salah – Grabbed a brace for Egypt and appears to be in good form.

Roberto Firmino – Should be fresh and ready to go after returning from injury.

Sadio ManeDidn’t play as well as some teammates over the break but Klopp baks him for this one.

Alisson
Alexander-Arnold – Phillips – Kabak – Robertson
Thiago – Fabinho – Milner
Salah – Firmino – Mane

All in all, a solid team that should get the win today.
