Arsenal host Liverpool at Emirates in the Premier League.
Saturday, April 3.
Sky Sports Main Event and Premier League.
Arsenal have injury doubts over both Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe ahead of the clash with Liverpool.
Saka pulled out of England duty last week due to a niggling hamstring issue while Smith Rowe suffered a hip injury while away with England Under-21s.
The rest of Mikel Arteta’s squad are fit and available. Martin Odegaard’s ankle injury suffered which he picked up with Norway is not a risk to him missing the game.
Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino returns to the squad after a knee injury.
The Brazil international has missed the Reds’ last three matches but trained fully this week and is back in contention.
Striker Divock Origi remains absent with a muscle problem and there is still no timescale on a return for captain Jordan Henderson after his groin operation in February.
Both teams will have their eye on their European ties next week as they build-up to this match.
But Arsenal are in need of a win to climb up the table while Liverpool are starting to look like themselves again after a tricky period.
Historically, this match has always produced goals and it shouldn’t be any different on Saturday night.
Predicted score: Arsenal 1 Liverpool 2
