Arsenal manager Unai Emery has named his provisional squad ahead of the top-of-the-table clash with Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday evening.

Liverpool and Arsenal are the only teams to win their first two Premier League games this season and they will face off for the biggest match of week three.

Ahead of the game, Unai Emery has welcomed both Mesut Ozil and Granit Xhaka back into his squad.

German World Cup winner Ozil has missed the last two games mainly due to security issues especially the first league game of the season at Newcastle United (ended in a 1-0 win to the Gunners).

He missed the second league game at home to Burnley (2-1 win to Arsenal) because of illness.

On the part of Xhaka, the Swiss international missed the Burnley game only due to a back problem.

For hosts Liverpool, the big injury news is the absence of first choice goalkeeper Alisson Becker for the Arsenal game because of an ankle problem.

Arsenal’s Provisional Squad: Bernd Leno, Emiliano Martinez, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Shkrodan Mustafi, David Luiz, Sokratis Papasthathopoulos, Calum Chambers, Nacho Monreal, Sead Kolasinac, Granit Xhaka, Matteo Guendouzi, Lucas Torreira, Mohamed Elneny, Joe Willock, Dani Ceballos, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Nicolas Pepe, Mesut Ozil, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, Gabriel Martinelli
