Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest team news ahead of Saturday’s trip to Anfield and there’s good news about Mikel Arteta.
The Spaniard looked to be struggling with a calf problem towards the end of the Crystal Palace game but is fit to make the journey to Liverpool.
There’s still a doubt about Jack Wilshere with the manager saying he ‘might’ be back, but the midfielder is expected to come through a fitness test.
Wenger says it will be a similar squad to the one for Palace, which may mean Thomas Vermaelen is still sidelined, troubled by the knee injury he picked up against Sp*rs in the FA Cup.
It’s a good chance for Arsenal to highlight their title credentials, and the boss says, “Saturday is a good moment for us to win a big game because we have a big month ahead.”
