Monday night football sees Liverpool host Arsenal with both teams having a 100% record after two games heading into the clash at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have beaten Leeds United 4-3 and 10 man Chelsea 2-0 heading into this match, whilst we followed our impressive 3-0 win at Fulham with a late 2-1 victory over West Ham United last weekend.
The confirmed lineups for tonight’s game are:
Bernd Leno; Rob Holding, David Luiz, Kieran Tierney; Hector Bellerin, Mohamed Elneny, Granit Xhaka, Ainsley Maitland-Niles; Willian, Alexandre Lacazette, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Substitutes: Alex Runarsson, Gabriel, Sead Kolasinac, Dani Ceballos, Bukayo Saka, Nicolas Pepe, Eddie Nketiah
Mikel Arteta trusts David Luiz ahead of Gabriel as the experienced Brazilian returns to the starting lineup. We’ll see how that pays off come the end of the game. Rob Holding and Kieran Tierney make up the back three.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles is back into the starting lineup on the left-hand side of midfield and Mohamed Elneny is surprisingly recalled in the middle of the park. No surprises named in the front three.
Alisson; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson; Fabinho, Georginio Wijnaldum, Naby Keita; Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane
Substitutes: Adrian, Neco Williams, James Milner, Curtis Jones, Takumi Minamino, Diogo Jota, Divock Origi
Joe Gomez partners Virgil van Dijk in the centre of Liverpool’s defence. The biggest surprise from the defending champions is Thiago Alcantara’s absence from the matchday squad. Naby Keita starts in place of the injured Jordan Henderson.
Youngsters Neco Williams and Curtis Jones are among the substitutes, as is new signing Diogo Jota.
Liverpool are the bookmakers’ 1.50 favourites to win this evening, down from 1.57 before the lineups were announced. Football punters who would prefer a free bet to increase their stake should check out OnlineCasinoSnoop before tonight’s game kicks off at 20:00 GMT.
