Two of the top four teams in the Premier League face each other in the start match of Matchweek 11 when Arsenal host Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium.

Just two places and four points separate both teams ahead of Saturday evening’s game in North London.

The huge Premier League clash offers the Gunners the opportunity to close the gap on the early pacesetters while Liverpool can go three points clear at the top of the table.

Ahead of the game, Arsenal manager Unai Emery could name a makeshift back four due to a mini-defensive crisis.

Four of his defenders are doubtful for the game against Liverpool.

The left-back duo of Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac are struggling to be fit due to respective right hamstring issues.

Spanish international right-back Hector Bellerin could also miss out with the thigh problem he sustained in the last league game at Crystal Palace while Greek defender Sokratis Papasthathopoulos has an ankle niggle.

Predicted Arsenal XI: Bernd Leno; Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding, Shkrodan Mustafi, Nacho Monreal; Lucas Torreira, Granit Xhaka; Alex Iwobi, Mesut Ozil, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang; Alexandre Lacazette.

Predicted Liverpool XI: Alisson Becker; Joe Gomez, Dejan Lovren, Virgil Van Dijk, Andrew Robertson; James Milner, Fabinho, Georginio Wijnaldum; Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane.
